    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    you get some good experience that other employers value.

    Cons

    Pay sucks.
    Hours suck.
    Unit Managers are mostly mean and don't care about a co-managers homelife.
    They do not value education and promote a lot of people who would not make it at other retailers.
    You have to check stores on Christmas when closed so you cannot travel very far.
    You will work almost every weekend.
    You will work till 11, drive an hour to get home and then have to be there again at 7am at least a few times a week.
    You will never be able to coach your kids sports teams cause they wont let you have off to do it.
    Forget about attending Church.
    Please do not fall for the lies they might tell you, Kroger will work you to death and for very little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Decide to really care about other people than yourselves. You are only a store manager not the head of a Fortune 500 company so don't act so cocky all the time. Kroger will go the way of Winn Dixie and Big Star one day because they let all the good Co-managers leave and are left with ones who cannot go anywhere else.

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

    Pros

    Good entry level job for high school students
    Co-workers become your friends
    Provides experience
    Make lasting connections

    Cons

    Pay is low no matter work experience or work ethic
    No bonuses even on holidays
    Not allowed to work overtime
    Rarely receive raises
    If the part-time job is shift work then don't count on getting days that you want off
    High turnover rate
    Lack of employees leads part-time jobs to have 40+ hour weeks

    Advice to Management

    Increase salary or include bonuses. These "free items" are usually bad tasting and too sparse. Kroger's employees as a collective feel that we are given these "free products" because our customers won't buy them themselves. I will guarantee that by increasing the money given to employees the part-time employees will become loyal employees.
