    "Too much asked of Store Managment and the pay is a joke..."

    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.

    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.
