    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

    Pros

    I like how we are in a safe, nice environment. I always feel safe and i have made some wonderful friends.

    Cons

    A couple fellow employees are rude. I also think pay could be raised based off how many hours you work not how many months you have worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to say that you are doing a very good job. I feel trained, safe, and happy in my work environment.

    I worked at Kroger

    Pros

    My coworkers were generally friendly and there was always something going on. It was fairly easy to pass the time and there was always something to do.

    Cons

    The pay was minimal, dealing with customers in a grocery setting means seeing customers when they are doing something they don't want to do, so they aren't always pleasant. There was a lot of drama between the employees, and in general it was simply just OK if you really needed a little money to get by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was virtually no opportunity for me to move up. It looked as if, should I choose to stay with Kroger, that I would remain a clerk forever. Everything was based on seniority, which didn't account for the amount of work involved.
