    Current Employee - Cashier, Courtesy Clerk, U-Scan Attendant in Anderson, OH

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The work is relatively easy to perform, and you never have to take your job home with you. My coworkers are great, so I enjoy being at work because of them.

    Cons

    Union dues take a good chunk of your paycheck, and unless you have a strict availability, your hours may not be very consistent. the work is also mind-numbingly boring, at least self-checkout and below. It's all manual labor and memorization, no critical thinking.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    the work is local-which is more my doing than management's

    Cons

    Managers spend too much resources on IT development and building of brick and mortar stores, while insisting that employees make too much. I could not even help a customer out to her car and get 15 minutes of overtime without that being taken off my paycheck. Planning and scheduling is non-existant. Management makes lower level employees angry in turn causing them not to want to work for the company. They call in sick and the schedule must change constantly. Thus costing the company more money and making it difficult for higher level people to perform efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your business model is ancient history, change your management style and focus on overall company net income instead of sales numbers.
