    Pros

    Decent employee discount on Kroger brand products

    Inconsistent scheduling: supervisors would schedule outside of availability causing issues with coverage and requiring employees to resolve scheduling conflict themselves.

    Pros

    Good Friends/Co-workers
    paid vacation for part time
    10% employee discount, sometimes 20%

    Cons

    Micro-mangers
    No pay raise for the courtesy clerks

    Advice to Management

    Give the courtesy clerks raises and compliment them if they are doing a good job. Have more courtesy clerks on the floor so people in other departments don't have to do buggy runs

    I worked at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed my two year term of working here much for the environment, the friendly workers, and the attentive section manager that would listen to us and try to truly address any issue that may arise. There was little need for intervention with such a polite and friendly group of people to work with.

    Cons

    I enjoyed my department very much, I have only found one thing consistently questionable throughout my experience, the behavior of specific store managers. Though I was asked to do something questionable, I was not punished for refusing.
