I worked at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible hours, great co-wokers, union benefits, raise every 6 months, job is protected by the union, so it's fairly difficult to get fired.

Cons

Poor management, crazy work hours, working holidays, union conflicts between managers and employees. There's a lot of favoritism toward certain employees, especially the ones who were relatives or friends of the managers. Due to the union it's almost impossible to get fired, so if they no longer wanted you, they will just cut your hours down to one 4 hour day a week until you just quit. Another downfall to the union was that a lot of employees were extremely lazy as a result because they knew they wouldn't lose their job for doing absolutely nothing, so that would mean the good workers would have to work twice as hard.

Advice to Management

Stop with the favoritism and start rewarding the employees who really deserve it.

    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
