    I worked at Kroger

    Pros

    There are regular pay increases and the managers worked with my schedule as much as they could while I was in college.

    Cons

    Customers can be difficult, a lot of physical work if you're not into that

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good department leadership positions, easy work. I am very happy with the insurance

    Cons

    High turnover, minimum wage with bad increases (at least until after you've put your years in), sometimes expected to do too much for the amount you are paid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, a lot of problems would be solved with great communication and higher wages.

    I worked at Kroger

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great. The customers I got were nice and HR was good at giving me the time off I needed for my doctor appointments.

    Cons

    There wasn't enough hours to go around. I would get between either 8 to 15 hours of work and it was erratic. I was also pregnant at the time and I was often left by myself at the fuel center and didn't get my bathroom breaks when needed.

    Pros

    Consistent pay raises, very diverse group of coworkers, many opportunities to gain various experience in different departments

    The managers need to take the time to meet their staff before making assumptions on the quality of employees. This would help.
