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

Pros

Decent pay for the type of work. Benefits are good. There is health insurance, 401 K, dental, vision, etc.

Cons

The downside is that there is very little opportunity for advancement. Pretty much stuck where your at especially if you are part time. Poor communication between management and associates. Lack necessary tools to get the job done.

Advice to Management

Improve communication with associates, offer advancement opportunities, and get the necessary tools for the associates to do their jobs.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kroger is a Fortune 500 company. That's about where it ends.

    Cons

    Upper management, district level up to and including executive, thinks way too highly of themselves and the company. Company has never had an original idea, let alone an original idea that works(ed). Compares itself to Publix and Walmart WAY too much. Every initiative ever rolled out has been a global FAILURE. But they company has invested way too much, spoke of it too highly, and crammed it down too many throats to take the mulligan. Also super afraid of upsetting a customer even when they are clearly in the wrong and trying to scam you. My new approach..."I don't give a darn...it's Kroger's money and Kroger's groceries! Give it to them!".

    Advice to Management

    RETIRE...Oh and when you do, stop hiring your friends and relatives to take over positions in which they have no experience. This company is clearly full of uneducated rednecks that have hung around long enough to get promoted. All of you are 30+ year employees....time to give it a rest and let a different generation take the helm.
