Wouldn't advise working at Kroger

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Dayton, OH

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

ConsDress 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
