    Pros

    Kroger had health benefits and thinking back I would have to correct myself and say the benefits were not bad. I do think they could have been better.

    Cons

    The down side to me were the hours..At times there would be late nights and early mornings.Never the same schedule or the same day off. It was really tough to make plans and live what I would consider a normal life.I

    Advice to Management

    I believe most people will give their best if management notices and compliments. I believe management should try to give their best as well.

    Pros

    -Awesome co-workers especially for my age since I worked there during high school and early college. Nothing like being able to get along well. I got lucky in that regard since many people in my department were around my age.

    -Easy work. At least for me. Didn't put much effort into cashiering and always ended up as one of the best cashiers. Did bare minimum for supervising and always did well with quevision.

    -Tuition reimbursement. Covers up to $1,500 per semester for tuition. That somewhat made up for the awful pay (will get into that in the cons),

    -Continuity with long time customers.

    Cons

    -TERRIBLE pay. I was working as a supervisor and customer service rep and near the end of my 4 year tenure I made a whooping $7.80 an hour. Entry level baggers at Publix make more than that. Hell, damn near every employer pays more than that. The fact I was there for 4 years and ended at an hourly pay was bad enough, the fact that I was a "supervisor" getting paid like that is just hilarious. If I recall we got $.05 raises every 6 months. That is an utter disgrace.

    -No performance benefits. Maybe I shouldn't be complaining about this since I put in little effort and always was one of the, if not the best worker in the front end. But it would be nice if they ever paid extra to someone performing well. They always encouraged everyone to become a retail god (like most employers I'm sure) but didn't do anything to motivate workers other than making it something you should just do for the hell of it. Why is the dimwit cashier with a cashier score a lot worse than mine or a lazy supervisor getting paid the same rate I am (more if they've been there longer than me).

    -Pushing carts outside in the hot Georgia sun and getting 0 appreciation for it. Got a beautiful farmers tan to make $7.25 an hour.

    -Dumb customers.

    Advice to Management

    -REWARD THE GOOD WORKERS.

    -When you get on a supervisor for being "lazy" or not "supervising" enough...just remember that they are on the same pay rate as the cashiers. Money talks. There shouldn't be that much more responsibility on supervisors at Kroger when we don't get paid any extra.

    Pros

    It was a paycheck in a rotten economy.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying about opportunities. If you say that you're going to do something then do it.
