    Pros

    Rapid expansion and consistent added positions means that there is lots of room to move up!

    Cons

    This rapid expansion has led to a lack of understood structure and possible moves within the organization

    Pros

    Pay is comparable to other companies doing this same type work. A little better in some cases. You are given a job to do and they let you go do it without hounding you as to hurry as my old employer did so often. Early flexible hours and nice people to work with for the most part. You're always gonna have a few that don't wanna work, that's at every job. Management is fair and supportive. Just do you job people, it's that simple!

    Cons

    No paid vacation time or paid time off. Could be better I think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Told you will receive a bonus in December each year based on attendance, job performance and attitude. I hope that true! Offer paid time off for part-timers that work a certain number of hours a quarter or yearly.

    Pros

    No Weekends
    Flexible
    Travel (Seeing New Places)
    Decent Pay ($10.00 per hour)

    Cons

    Inconsistent Hours
    Travel (Fuel Not Paid For)
    Redundant Work
    Some Disorganization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needed a job during Fall 2013. This was a nice little gig which sent me to a few different Kroger stores. They didn't work weekends. Typical shifts lasted from around 6A to 2P, although they often let people out around lunch (11A). Not too stressful. A much easier $10.00/hr than what you'd get at Amazon ($10.50).

    Pros

    You are a valued member of the team, and the company makes sure you know it. Hours and days are flexible, and the pay is good for part time. The dress-code is easy, though you will get dirty.

    Cons

    Hard work, no sick/vacation/holidays, At times, heavy workloads. You will work in the freezer, refrigerated sections, as well as other areas of the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offering long-term employees a couple sick/vacation/holidays a year would go far!

    I worked at PL Marketing Inc. part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Easy money, set schedule, casual dresscode

    Cons

    Dealing with misogynist men whose egos outweigh their actual skill. Working with people who are on drugs, and who come into work reaking of alcohol. They don't even have their company cars cleaned before they give them to you. (Unprofessional and disgusting)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step into the future. Have respect for your employees and maybe they'll stick around. Fix your Napoleon syndrome. Attitude is everything and all of the managements attitude sucks. You all are rude, unhappy, spiteful people, I can only imagine how you treat those you actually care about.

    Pros

    Monday-Friday, fun co-workers, understanding management. Markdowns and disco items are nice perks. Early start times, 6am-2ish, leaves your day open for rest of your to do list and a nap. Minimally stressful job. Direct deposits.consistant on break times and lunch schedule.

    Cons

    When there's no resets to be done. It's starvation nation. Sometimes you have to drive a little farther out to surrounding areas. No milage pay. You work in freezers, burrr. Some Kroger customers become aggravated with all the shuffling around necessary in reset. Like it is the end of the world.

    Pros

    Early hours,no nights or weekends.Since they hire you as temp, if you need a day off or call in for personal reasons. It's accepted, no questions asked.When hired they see what you can do then allow you to work and don't hover over you.

    Cons

    Not full time.Only hire temp employees. They hire temp employees that hae not done resets before and pay them the same amount your making and your training them???? I think after they see what you can do you should be giving a raise or something??? jobs should be posted for openings in other areas. I have seen a lot of people that don't work or know how too waste time, while some of us work hard and give100%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great workers are hard to come by, find a way to offer full time. We drive up to 60 miles a day, offer to pay mileage.You loose great worker because these things are not offered. For those of us that love doing this work and would like to stay with your company offer a bonus or something when we get a strore completed early.Or don't hire so many people and allow us to work more.
