I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Its a steady paycheck as long as you show up to work. The benifits are ok as long as you never need to see a doctor for anything serious.

Cons

Management does not take anyone below them seriously and they never compliment people for doing a good job. They don't want to work people when customers want them around. People are always fighting over hours because the company is always cutting them, even though sales are consistantly going up.

Advice to Management

Take advice from the people that work for you seriously and stop pretending like you know whats best for the customers, since none of you ever talk to them. You need to value your employees' personal lives and stop forcing everyone to work every single weekend day. I do like to go to church and spend time with my loved ones too.
