    Pros

    You often have pretty cool coworkers, nice supervisors, most customers are pretty nice people. You can roll people for hours.

    Cons

    The upper managment doesn't care about their employees, in all locations. You will often be doing more than your specified job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees, they're people too. Work on store upkeep, cleaning often gets forgotten. Listen and speak to your employees as though they're your equal.

    Pros

    Consistent pay raises, very diverse group of coworkers, many opportunities to gain various experience in different departments

    Cons

    Low pay, company values length of tenure over effort and quality of work, very inexperienced management, fast paced work environment

    Advice to Management

    The managers need to take the time to meet their staff before making assumptions on the quality of employees. This would help.

    Pros

    The ability and access to good hours, good benefits, paid vacations holiday pay also the chance to receive scheduled pay raises.

    Cons

    Must work most holidays. cap out pay is inevitable. Not much chance to pursue higher level in company than store level.

    Advice to Management

    better communication between managers as well as management and employees. better pay structure. more frequent vacations.

    Pros

    Very nice people in all departments.

    Cons

    Union takes some salary. I get no benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the union. It takes my hard earned cash.

    Pros

    It's not difficult, A trained monkey could do the job.

    Cons

    They pay is pathetic. After 12 years I make 9.90 an hour paying union dues on top of that. Kroger treats their employees like they are nothing.

    Advice to Management

    If you treated your employees better they would have more motivation to do a better job.

    Pros

    The only one I can think of right now is sometimes your requested days off are given to you and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very little pay/recognition for hard work. I have worked for 3 years and only make 8.50 hourly for stocking and working trucks. Management does not care about you they only care about sales. If you are a smart/independent thinking person DO NOT apply here.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, not slaving robots.

    Pros

    Supervisors/Management, Flexible Hours, Great Customers, Job itself isn't difficult. Some great co-workers.

    Cons

    Supervisors, Lazy Co-Workers, Poor-Pay, Short Notice Schedule, Heavy Work Load (As a new employee everyone who can pass off their work to you does.), Union. People treat you like your dull-witted or ignorant because your new.

    Advice to Management

    Consider a pay raise for all employes at minimum wage regardless of work experience, ditch the Union.

    Pros

    Typically a pretty fun job. Coworkers are generally great people and management is very professional. Overall, it wasn't a bad part-time job.

    Cons

    It's a customer service oriented job, so it can be kind of routine at times. Also, it requires standing for most of the time. But that is expected in this type of job.
