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

Pros

Increases your experiences with people skills.

Cons

Possibly psychically damaging to the body.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work. I would say, as long as there is a union going on between each employee and the manager, then you indeed are in a good business foundation.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Department heads and managers at the store are not just skilled at their jobs; they're also hard-working, congenial, and downright fun to work with. I've learned new things from each one of them, and I can trust them to have my back if I need help with something. And while we have occasionally had people enter the Dairy department who wanted to coast along, the majority of people who enter the position are well-motivated and willing to work as a team to complete tasks

    Cons

    There seems to be a disconnect between upper management back at the corporate office and the stores they're responsible for. Many of the problems that have occured at my job have been a result of poor planning by corporate or a poor understanding of what we need in order to work effectively.

    Advice to Management

    You've instituted many great policies in the past to improve performance, but many of the policies you've put in the past lately have been short-sighted. If you can figure out why that has been happening and fix it, you'll have better sales and both employee and customer satisfaction.
