I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I have worked at Kroger for almost 10 years and have found it to be very satisying and challenging. I feel I have been rewarded well for what I have been able to accomplish.

Cons

The work hours can be long with minimal staff support and high expectations of output. There is ongoing pressure to do more with the same or less staff.

Advice to Management

Try to ensure the work/life balance is maintained for all employees, and those who put in the time and perform above average are fairly rewarded

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the hours I was given, I enjoyed the people I got to meet, and that includes coworkers and customers. My managers and supervisors were nice, and helpful, especially when coworkers would take advantage of situations.

    Cons

    Pay, promises not followed through when I was "promoted", felt there were too many politics involved with trying to move up in the company, and even with dedication and hard word, I wasn't recognized, and others who had less experience were promoted before me even though I was told I was "on the list".

    Advice to Management

    Be more empathetic to situations, be more understanding and more leadership like in critism than having a "boss" air. You're no better than your employee's, and scaring them into doing things, instead of wanting to help them thrive, is something that should be worked on.
