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

Pros

This was a great first job for me. Started out making six dollars an hour, which seemed awesome when I was sixteen years old. Flexible work schedules for students (which there were a lot working there at the time) Also opportunities to work weekends/extra weekend hours when you wanted to

Cons

Well, as a student working barely minimum wage, sometimes they would work you to death! Cheap labor, I assume.

Advice to Management

More training! We were essentially thrown into the job with little "on the job training"

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

    Pros

    The employees are all very friendly for the most part.

    Cons

    Very physically demanding work and its measured a tad harshly.

    Advice to Management

    Downtime Should be a bit easier to post/get considering the amount of congestion the warehouse faces, either that or congestion needs to be worked on.


  2. "Hard physical work for low pay... they tout advancement but it is very difficult to apply for another position"

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    A union shop that has negotiated strong benefit package

    Cons

    Local managers can thwart an employees ability to apply for other positions in the company. The Job Posting Acknowledgment form can allow a store manager to stop an employee from being interviewed for a job that in most cases the store manager has no knowledge of the skills needed. This basically negates Kroger from being an equal opportunity employer... once you get hired....

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the Job Posting Acknowledgment form... allow associates to apply for any position they believe they have the skills to do and let the hiring team decide if the person is the right fit...Not an ill equipped low level manager....
