    Current Employee - Produce Clerk in Fort Wayne, IN

    I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some of the key employees have been around for up to 45 years. Very knowledgable and care about quality and customer service. High pay and good benefits for full time.

    Cons

    Company only hiring part-time employees to meet a ratio so they don't have pay health care. Full time employees not leaving fast enough so they are finding ways to remove them. Dirty management. Writing people up for being 1 min. late, suspensions without a probationary period. All geared at full time. Part time starts out at minimum, pays a $75 union fee and then monthly dues and get .5 every 6 months. No insurance. Company won't let anyone get over 30 hours. No advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your only as good as your people. We cannot be replaced that easy. $7.25 won't buy you the experience we have. Lose the Key Retailing. Empoyees hate it.

    From the very top to the very bottom, a truly terrible company.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good for a first job.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, terrible pay, long hours, forced overtime, inept union, limited advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make every store identical, they aren't and won't ever be. Put a salary cap on CEO's to help employees get insurance/raises/live their lives...current ratio is 160/1. Stop giving manager's, MRs, coordinators, and office workers large bonuses. Give employees more opportunity to move up. Increase the pay for co-managers.
