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.

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

    Pros

    -the friendliness and helpfulness of co-workers
    -Easy when need to switch shifts

    Cons

    -Passive aggressiveness of management
    -Lack of communication between management (all levels)

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with middle management and don't be afraid to tell someone they are doing something wrong. It's the only way they can fix and improve their work habits. Vague notes written by the clock in station probably won't reach the intended recipient.

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

    Pros

    I like the job security and flexibility toward schedules. My experience with them thus far has been a decent one and I feel appreciated as an employee by coworkers in management and customers.

    Cons

    If you're on your own, you will need a second job to make ends meet. Due to being Union, pay starts off at $7.25 an hour at part time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the customers when certain products are not available that once were. Also, make advancing in the ranks more accessible for those that work hard and wish to advance.
