Good place to launch a career

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Blue Ash, OH

I worked at Kroger full-time for more than 5 years

ProsKroger will hire people fresh out of college and give them a stable place to work. Decent benefits, good hours.

ConsKroger low-balls employees on salary until you get to certain levels of management. As do many big companies, Kroger values its middle and upper management more than it values the people actually getting the work done. Additionally, the company offers poor compensation for skilled employees, and holidays and other benefits are below the industry standard with regards to work in corp. Can't speak about the store level.

Advice to Senior ManagementRetain talent with better pay. Eliminate long-time managers who have been there for 15-30 years.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

lousy employer

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Cincinnati, OH

I have been working at Kroger full-time for 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… Advice to Senior Management: Your business model is ancient history, change your management style… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
