    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    ability to interface with hundreds of consumers and receive raw consumer data.

    Cons

    too many managers....like the government...hard to get things pushed through. No compensation for innovation. Low level managers pay for their superiors mistakes, often with there jobs. Who you know often leads to advancement.

    Advice to Management

    So much wrong with management; where do you start.

    Pros

    Kroger has a lot of benefits and will offer to work with your schedule as you need it. Friendly co-workers and a brisk pace make the day go by fast!

    Cons

    Pay rate is a little low for job responsibilities. A lot of stress comes from working in the deli/bakery and you are expected to give 140%. If you complain they waste no time in insulting you or suggesting if you don't like your job that you simply quit.

    Advice to Management

    Think about work load vs. payment.
