    I have been working at King Soopers

    Pros

    10% discount on private selection/corporate brands.

    Cons

    have worked for the company 25 years. They have no loyalty to long term employees. In fact, I believe that they will find ways to get rid of long term employees to make way for "newer" "fresher" people.

    I have been working at King Soopers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Decent health Insurance
    -Weekly pay check
    - Always looking for people

    Cons

    -Terrible management
    -Over-worked, under paid
    -lazy secretaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees equal happy customers. When one of them comes to you for a problem or needs help, listen to them. Don't lie and abuse them. The management is lazy, and constantly lies tot he employees. If something goes wrong due to their lack of communication, it's the employees fault, never theirs. If the employee is overwhelmed, they don't care.

    Just from my own experience, they won't train but continuously say they will. They will under pay you but still expect you to run a department alone.

    This company is just terrible, but if you really need a job. They always hire.

    I worked at King Soopers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co workers were very helpful along with other departments in the store. I loved working at King Soopers and honestly did not want to quit.

    Cons

    Was difficult to make any plans for 1 week out because the schedule was never ready until 1 week before. Front end management should never discipline an employee in front of customers. Employees were treated poorly up front especially Courtesy Clerks. Double standards were very common between employees and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should care more about their employees, and talk to them. Clear up any differences so an employees don't quit or just not show up. There was a very large turnover in my store up front due to management issues, and disrespect.
