    Former Employee - Starbucks Clerk King Soopers in Denver, CO

    I worked at King Soopers full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Its a paycheck that got me through college. Benefits after one year.

    Cons

    Not a reliable schedule. Hours were never guaranteed. Employers were unsatisfied. Had to join the union no choice had to give up money to them. I've been harassed by managers just because they didn't like me.Including being written up for no good reason what so ever. Under appreciated.Train idiots to be managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be friendly say hi to your employees, they will respect you more, as you should respect them.

    Pros

    Get the 10% on Kroger items

    Cons

    Crappy wages even with experience behind the belt, wont cross train into other departments because of lack of coverage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop having fake managers who can't keep their mouths shut long enough. Pay employees who knows how to do the job and has the time instead of giving bs excuses on a credit thing, Let us go to other stores if we want to be crossed trained instead of being force to stay in one position all the time, this is why turnover is high and employees are burn out.

    Current Employee - Bakery Clerk in Loveland, CO

    I have been working at King Soopers part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly, and I love my regular customers. It's a good place to learn how to work hard. I've learned a lot of valuable skills here.
    If management was more professional and understanding towards employees under them, this would be a wonderful place to work.

    Cons

    Management is disrespectful. I'm afraid to ask questions, because I'm always treated like I'm stupid, no matter how legitimate the question is. Training was a joke, management expects perfection on the second day of training, I've watched too many people quit because expectations were too high, too soon. (for god's sake give somebody at least 2 weeks to get to know the product!)
    Pay should be higher, not because the work is hard, or the customers demanding, BUT the management is emotionally draining.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are not your verbal punching bags, we're your employees, we're human.
    Don't belittle employees every time they have questions.
    We have lives outside of King Soopers, scheduling at the very last minute is discouraging.
    Not calling employees when you change their shift for the very next day and they won't see the change until it's too late...unprofessional, irresponsible, and says a lot about how much you care about your employees.

    Overworked and underpaid. The management is generally, young and as a result arrogant and insensitive.

    Pros

    Other employees are kind, hard-working people. The intake training is very good. Minimum wage is not enough to live on. Turnover rate is very high.

    Cons

    Little support for employees trying to go to school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and keep your promises.

    I worked at King Soopers full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working for King Soopers because I was able to work with the public , talking to different people everyday hearing people talk about there lives. you become friends with customers.

    Cons

    Managers are not always fair, they form an opinion of you before they really get to know you, especially if you transfer from another store, they read your file and pass judgment on you, if you are PT you are lucky to get 20 hours a week and even if you are making journeyman wages its hard to make ends meet, and if you have another job they do not work with you they think that King Soopers should be your life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    to always work hard, be fair, never pass judgment and do the best you can, never give up, treat people the way you want to be treated

    Pros

    The best benefit to working at Kroger is that you can easily work. As long as you pass a drug test, and appear upbeat you will be hired at any King Soopers store. There are several stores opening throughout North America and you can transfer to different locations upon request. As long as you have passed the probation period. The job is also very repetitive so you can quickly learn your job duties. If you work in the Deli department, like i did...you can sample foods whenever there is free time and no customers to help.

    Cons

    I would never recommend working for this company because it is too political, there are favorites. It has a seniority based structure so there are many new people working themselves to the bone( with very little reward) while a select few make double the pay and pass all the job duties to those with less seniority. There is no schedule flexibility....those higher few choose the hours they want and everyone else is stuck with the rest. Commonly you will work weekends and late evenings and any other peak business hour, holiday, etc. Schedules are always changing without prior notice and you are expected to have perfect attendance. You will not be able to request time off for vacation or shift swap. You may be required to pay weekly union dues depending on which department you are in.ultimately you will be hassled by seniors to maintain a high level of output without training and with little help. You will be payed next to nothing and will work outrageously hard. Work injuries are extremely common. The stores are always under staffed and thus very busy. The job is so physical you will be in pain by the end of your work day. Back, neck, feet, eyes, arms, all sore. It is way too much work and expectations for way too little compensation. YOU WILL HATE YOUR LIFE.
