    I have been working at Kroger part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    As long as you can handle moderate physical labor and can remember tasks the job is fairly simple.

    Cons

    Raises are almost impossible to get, unless you have previous experience the pay isn't worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more opportunity for those who work hard to be rewarded.

    Pros

    They pay you to work there, every week, when you get hours. Every week you pay taxes, union dues and health insurance whether you work the previous week or not.

    Cons

    Never get full time work or benefits, unless you put in enough time to have enough senority to win a full time bid. The hours are sketchy certain times of the year. You may get 12 hours for the week, but they will be scheduled over a 4 day period, if you get any at all. Not enough training. No real benefits until after 5yrs. You are expected to do the work of 3 people for minimum wage. There is no work-life balance. They only care about their customers & shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of employees & their needs. They're the backbone of your company.
