    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. $$$$
