I worked at Kroger full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Clean, safe work environment. It's a job, in a tough economy I appreciate just having a job.

Cons

There are no merit raises. They talk about experience pay at the interview, but either you do not get it, or for those who do it is a nickel. You will work second shift until people retire, quit or get fired. Those above you in seniority believe themselves to be your bosses, while it's not true it is annoying.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good first job
    -Pay increases come after a set period of time, not just for those who earn it.

    Cons

    -Many of the department heads are overbearing.
    -It is very hard to get promoted or moved unless you know someone.
    -Everything, and I mean everything, goes by seniority, which is fine if you're at the top...
    -Many department heads want you to give up your life for the job, which isn't ideal.


  2. "Poor Human Resources Communication and followup"
