    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good benefit package for full time associates

    Cons

    Atmosphere has gotten horrible and the turnover is atrocious, too many part-time workers that don't care because they make minimum wage

    Advice to Management

    Pay people at least what your competitors are doing for lower level positions, you haven't seen it yet but you've lost all upcoming talent in your stores and soon there will be nobody qualified to take on a manager role of any kind

    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good, friendly coworkers. A good first job. Has breaks.

    Cons

    Long hours and paid barely above minimum wage. If not long hours, barely any. Management somewhat confusing. ie telling you to do one thing but yelling at you for not doing another. Does have benefits, but have to be full time to receive and is somewhat expensive and always changing. Not flexible schedule. Barely able to work around school schedule (ie for college).

    Advice to Management

    You need to be more organized, learn how to give constructive criticism and stop trying to scare away people after you hire them.

    Pros

    Everybody is very helpful, easy to work with. They really work with your personal schedule

    Cons

    Fast-paced, the union sucks. No downtime, it is also very easy to get pushed around by higher management

    Pros

    Pleasant environment. Hours of business good

    Cons

    Sometimes not enough hours for the department when you really need them. Put forth you best effort.

    Advice to Management

    Consider employees hours when kroger have good faithful, loyal and trustworthy employees. Just an open suggestion.

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

    Pros

    Great staff, friendly environment. Fairly easy job. This job was one of the best jobs I ever had and had minimal stress.

    Cons

    Hours are all over the place at times. I worked part time and some weeks I would get about 20 hours and another week I would only get about 8. They can cut hours very quickly and they like to hire many employees and give small hours if you work as a cashier or bagger.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less employees and give those who are currently working good hours. They tend to promise a certain amount of hours and then slowly they will hire too many employees and cut hours.


  9. Fuel Center Clerk

    Cons

    No bathroom in the gas station area.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time

    Pros

    Store environment and manager are great, salary and bonuses are decent, manager training is detailed, opportunities for advancement available if the conditions are right

    Cons

    High level issues roll down to store level and people that shouldn't be worrying about it. Conflicting expectations given to managers and hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay new hourly employees more, pick a direction and stick to it - don't give conflicting expectations

    Pros

    This is an alright job if you want to be left alone. You can put your earbuds in, put your head down and just bust out some stock. The atmosphere is fairly laid back since it is overnight.

    Cons

    Not enough people, managers who have never spent time really stocking expecting more than can be accomplished by the small crews that they have.

    Advice to Management

    On a night where you have a small crew and a large truck, the conditioning job will not be perfect and backstock may be skimmed over, but not fully dropped and worked. There were many nights where we had a crew of 4-5 and a truck over 1500. Everyone killed themselves to get the truck stocked and the store conditioned only to have a manager come in and pick apart the conditioning if there were any sections that got a quick facing.
