    I have been working at Kroger full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Job is very simple. I bag groceries and run receipt checks. Other times I have to clean parts of the store and help people find what they're looking for.

    Cons

    You are required to do more than what you're job title is. If something needs to be clean and it's not your turn you must do it since it's in the contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The job is very nice for a person in high school! So I can't complain.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Discount on Kroger products (10%), communicate with customers, OK work atmosphere, friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Standing on feet for long hours, breaks are not on-time, outdated cart pulleys (manual grocery cart pulleys), sometimes I feel under appreciated. Its a small store and has outdated equipment ( recycling machines are never working properly, and alcohol security disablers are broken on almost all cashiers).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please take care of your employees. We can't smile and offer excellent customer experience if we're not happy. Stop treating us like second class citizens but more like a co-worker. On-time breaks are very much appreciated because it's not easy standing up for long periods of time bagging, pushing carts, attending to customers, bringing back groceries, and attending to the recycling room.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being able to interact with customers makes the shifts fly by. Without the customer there is no job so it is necessary to help them in any way possible.

    Cons

    The other employees are all terrible. I feel as if I am the only person who does any work around the entire store.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for unskilled labor. Great for someone new to the country or going to college. They follow the seven minute rule.

    Cons

    Embarrassing when you run into someone that knows you and they're more successful than you. Free samples are below average and technically employees aren't allowed to eat then in the first place.
