Current Employee - Deli Clerk

I have been working at Kroger part-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefit package (health insurance, paid vacations, 401K).
Flexible scheduling.

Cons

Pay is not a living wage.
Must work all holidays and weekends.
Management focuses on corporate goals rather than employee needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When I first started with the Kroger Company 'Our People are Great' was the motto. Since then, the focus has changed to corporate growth and the customer is always right. Employee needs are no longer a focus within this company.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at the same store for about 6 years and was a courtesy clerk, file clerk, fuel center manager, fuel clerk, and a cashier during my time. Most departments allowed for flexible schedules and hours, especially if you were a student. For a first job, or student job, it was good pay with the flexibility of the schedule.

    They have also made great strides in listening to the employees thoughts and opinions at the store level with their new feedback system.

    Cons

    In my "lower management" positions it was frustrating to implement or work with the directives and requests of upper management (outside the store) that didn't understand how things really operated on a daily basis at store level and the uniqueness of a store based on the community it was located in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on gathering information from your employees and not just implementing changes because they look good on paper.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a great supervisor, and got along with most of the people I worked with. They were pretty good about giving time off when it was requested, and worked around my college schedule very well.

    Cons

    some of the people I worked with, and some issues with an assistant manager that seemed to have some favoritism issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your workers, and try to work with them, not against them. Most managers I had were great, but there were some that needed to realize that their workers and themselves were all working toward the same goal.
