    Don't expect to be a valued priority to the company unless you are on the salary payroll.

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

    Pros

    Room to grow at store level with various departments.

    Cons

    Starting pay is horrible for all positions,
    Courtesy Clerks are not eligible for and do not receive health benefits PERIOD
    All other positions do get benefits AFTER 1 year of employment
    Christmas and Thanksgiving are ONLY holidays you get holiday pay, everyone else on old contracts get holiday pay for EVERY SINGLE holiday.
    No bonuses, No holiday bonus or incentives except a $1 store manager coupon if you're lucky
    No time off requests unless you're in high school, otherwise you're expected to be on call at all times (not literally but they expect you to committ all your available time to bending over backwards for them)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management does not treat anyone with respect unless you happen to be one of their favorite's. The company as a whole does not value it's associates with respect or dignity. Associates are not a priority of the company and the company did a great job proving it when holiday incentives were taken away from hourly employees just so store management and corporate could keep their twice a year bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Willing to schedule around school, decent pay, easy to change depts. and/or advance, solid company structure, competent management, great training, nice environment

    Cons

    High turnover, not much or too much culture, ometimes corporate policy can be annoying, some depts. are union, which may be a pro for some. And you can't blame the company, but they do attract some snobby customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transferring employees to different stores when they advance to management is not always the best solution.

    I have been working at King Soopers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I work with some interesting and often fun people. Getting to be on first name basis with the customers is cool and I find them to be uplifting at times.

    Cons

    Schedules for newbie part timers are very, well, unpredictable. Finding out on a Friday your schedule for the following week is a bit trying. Pay is low but insurance and 401K are available. The Muzak gets to me at night when things get quiet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The published vision of the company seems appealing but you need to stick to it and stop with the favorites and treat the ones you lead with the same dignity and urgency that you demand on a whim.

    I have been working at King Soopers part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Most of the employees are good people trying to do the best they can.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick one focus and stick to it. Trying to be all things to all people typically results in poor customer service.

    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.
