    Pros

    I worked at Kroger as a bagger. Kroger has a very good system in place for clocking in and out, taking breaks, requesting time off, and the store discount is great. (The discount is 10% off on all Kroger brand items)

    Cons

    The employees around you come and go pretty frequently. Kroger is very serious about their rules and policies so if you cut-up while working you will get in trouble. The pay is nothing special.

    Advice to Management

    Up the pay. $$$$

    Pros

    People are mostly enjoyable. The time goes by quickly. Plenty of possibility for growth and promotions.

    I worked at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    Great work environment. Everyone is friends with everyone which makes the day go by much faster. I miss it!

    Cons

    The pay wasn't the best, and there was not much opportunity at all for advancement within the company. Even though I enjoyed work it wasn't paying the bills.

    Advice to Management

    If i could give my advice to management I would tell them to stay motivated. At times they were pretty lazy and that atmosphere reflects on your staff and customers.

    Pros

    Observation and study of various human behavior

    Cons

    Meager pay and strongly believed I had the capability to perform more roles and responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Managers generally tend to run a company or establishment more proficiently when they have the mindset of managing people, not the systematic concept of managing a company.
