    Pros

    Good salary,good benefits and bonus program, onsite fitness center. Corporate offices are nice but in SE Portland, ample parking.

    Cons

    Ever since the Kroger merger this regional office has gotten smaller and lost a lot of its employees as well as Mr. Meyers ideals. RIP

    Advice to Management

    I guess I would say hang on as long as you can, or get ready to move to Cinncinati as alot of people have done.

    Pros

    Great pay if you're not a Parcel and have worked there long enough. Most managers have respect for employees. If you work hard, you can go far.

    Cons

    It is difficult work at times, especially on busy days, which you can't always predict. Some customers will be rude, but you'll get that anywhere in retail.

    Advice to Management

    Schedule better. Listen to your employees thoughts and ideas. Communicate better.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good management(at least at my store), friendly coworkers, good work environment.

    Cons

    Too strict on dress code(I.e. green aprons MUST be worn around the neck), not many opportunities to move up, little hours if you've been there long.

    Advice to Management

    Please, for the love of God, get rid of those green aprons. Make them a different color!

    Pros

    Being in the Grocery department, I have a very good income. I am union and I have awesome benefits for my family ($22/week).

    Cons

    I've worked in 5 different FM stores and some people in management are not the greatest. This will come with any job though.

    Pros

    The pay was somewhat competitive but had to make sure that HR was on the same page as what I was offered.

    Cons

    They don't keep great records of employment; when I was hurt at work they made up lies about my employment with them inserting write ups that never happened. This came out in court; as I had never seen them before and never signed them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more and give them the time of day.

    Pros

    Never had to worry about asking for more hours, decent to great pay depending on position, pretty flexible for when you ask for time off

    Cons

    Very strict attendance rules, management can be difficult due to constant changes as upper management moves from store to store frequently

    Advice to Management

    A larger sense of permanence from management would be nice so you could get to know who you're working for, and so you can build more rapport between employee and employer.
