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

Pros

The work is really easy, so it's quick to catch on to.
They'll almost always hire you as long as you pass a drug/background check.
They offer great benefits, even for part-time employees.
Benefits are cheap because of the union.
Weekly paychecks are a nice luxury

Cons

It's retail. You have to love retail to enjoy it. Late/early hours, repetitive job. Can get boring if you don't make it fun yourself.

    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours for students, acceptable health benefits if you work full time, easy interview process.

    Cons

    The culture is increasingly hostile to lower level employees. At first Kroger had a great work environment, now micromanagement and heavy handedness prevail.

    Advice to Management

    Settle down. Not everything is a big deal. If you give a little to your employees you will get a lot back.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Security of knowing the company is secure and not going out of business any time soon.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care about employees. Do not abide by union contracts.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to employees who want to stick around and be loyal in return, not to people who are only going to be temporarily around.
