I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

very comprehensive management training and experience. The company really does focus on developing you as a leader. Plenty of potential to move up in the company

Cons

long hours at times and they are not always in line with having a "normal life". Also again depending on where you are placed sometimes promotions are based upon popularity.

    Pros

    The computer system is very easy to learn and very easy to use. They accept majority of insurance, including tricare.

    Cons

    Sometimes the staffing can be an issue. There are times where there is not enough help and you will be swamp big time.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    10% discount on Kroger brand merchandise
    20% on Fred Meyer Jewelery

    Cons

    Store management is not communicative with hourly staff, and encounters are always negative, this drives down morale.
    Management also deliberately short-staffs
    The inventory system is egregiously obsolete, and under the current model over-orders are a common occurrence. Additionally sale merchandise is not separated out and given priority, this leads to unnecessarily disgruntled customers.

    Advice to Management

    A district level recruiter for hourly employees is unnecessary and it leads to employees walking into their assignments without situational awareness, and it's just a wasteful misuse of capital.

    The Inventory system needs modernization ASAP, the current model is not sustainable and smaller stores in Marketplace districts are suffering from a customer base drop.

    Management needs to employ better communication skills with hourly staff, there are far too many blunt and poorly communicative managers this is driving up employee turnover and driving down morale.
