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

Pros

Ceiling is as high (or low) as you want it to be. Many high level executives started as part time associates in our stores.

Cons

Work-Life balance is poor. Entry level management work 50+ hours each week mostly consisting of night,s weekends, and holidays.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to promote into positions and departments people are passionate about without years spent in Store Management. We're missing out on bright people who aren't patient enough to wait 3-5 years to advance into the positions they're passionate about, especially after earning a college degree.

Accountability is lacking in some levels of Management. At times, it creates animosity toward peers who under-perform and keep their position or even get promotions.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people that work at Kroger are usually rather young teenagers, so if you're in or near that age range, it's really easy to become friends with everyone. Everyone helps each other out and is generally very approachable.

    Cons

    There is constantly something to do, but you only get either a 15 minute break or a 30 minute break, depending on how many hours you work. It gets tiring really fast.

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

    Pros

    Great corporate environment. The senior management has strong believes and a solid plan to move into the future

    Cons

    The work life balance can be difficult. The hours expected can be gruesome, but they are manageable. I believe this varies greatly by department.
