I worked at Kroger

Pros

Store managers are easy to work with. Employees for the most part are great.

Cons

District Management is unreasonable. General office is WAY too disconnected and they have no idea what is going on in the stores. Hours are terrible, if you are a co manager you are guaranteed to work at least 3 to 4 nights until 11 pm. It is almost impossible to get a weekend off. I went 4 months without a weekend off. There is no support system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more management for store level. Work life balance is terrible. Find some people for district management who have people skills! Our district manager would literally walk our store and not say one word to the employees. The district manager would always find something negative, never positive.

    I worked at Kroger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Big name to build experience

    Cons

    very political, long hours of work, low pay, no systems in place, limited growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be in touch with reality and the politics that goes on in the plants. Senior Management should have more hands on approach. Need to hire professional staff.
    Long hours of work and low pay does not help build morale, be there to support employees on weekends and afterhours.
