    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed meeting the customers and providing samples of the deli food and then suggesting an item that would also go with the sample. The jewelry department was great too. Showing and demonstrating the jewelry. A lot of customer relations in both departments.

    Cons

    Not being allowed to sit down.

    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 worked at Kroger

    Pros

    Working here I got to see a lot of different foods. I get discounts on food. Customers are always giving me recipes.

    Cons

    You need to be able to stand for a long period of time. You are always learning something new about customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to workers about what the customers are looking for. Work with the workers to learn more about the company they are working for.

    Pros

    Its a good job to work at, the company does care about its employees.

    Cons

    Chances are you won't be making top dollar for quite a few years and hours aren't so great if you're part time.
