Wouldn't advise working at Kroger

I worked at Kroger

Pros

Easy job, small employee incentives, room for growth, competitive salary, friendly managers and staff at store level, company growth and expansion

Cons

Dress code for management is too particular, union staff makes actual "management" useless, they want to control how you style your hair and will spot check your shoes to make sure they are continually perfect and freshly shined (no joke), far too extensive training and testing before you can even get into a store

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The training that was completed before working in a store was far too extensive and redundant, and enforcing the trainees to wear suits and ties when it is not the dress code for a manager is pointless. If you plan on working as a manager for Kroger, plan on picking up grapes all day and inspecting apples as your job, since it is what you will be primarily doing.

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    Good benefits even for part-time employees. Sometimes you get to work with good people but that really has nothing to do with the company. That is about all.

    Cons

    I do not have space to list all of the cons here but some are as follows:
    poor management, low wages, no real feedback on job performance, no incentive to do a good job, no employee support from management in situations where customers are abusive, many limitless dumb memos and new initiatives to sign off on that are dumb and pointless. Upper management is out of touch with workers. Hours are un stable depending on current weeks sales, politics and favoritism in the workplace. I have seen and heard of blatant disrespect by managers or employees to other employees or subordinates in the store and it is tolerated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come to the stores and listen to your employees. Work in the stores not just on company walk thrus where the staff has spent 2 days getting ready for your visit. Talk to the checker, the bagger, the pharm tech and the dept. head. We are the face of your company. Get up to date with technology. Sometimes the customers notice and it slows us down.

    better compensation and training benefits would be nice and also more relief for part time workers would be beneficial to grow with the company
