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

Pros

I was able to move up really quickly when a position opened up. They noticed my potential and excellent work attitude and I was given what is known as a Merit Raise... Kroger is unionized and the only way to get a raise is to work there so many hours, or get a Merit Raise. The Merit Raise gives you 2 pay scales above what you were getting paid but there's something about it only being allowed once.

Cons

Strict rule enforcement can seem mundane and pointless. There's always someone important walking around who notices something.

Advice to Management

Ask more questions! Show more care to the little guy and you will see a great increase in work performance.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They promote from within better than any other company I've worked for.
    The range of employee ages makes for a unique environment...everybody fits!

    Cons

    Some employees have been there forever and are wonderful whereas some employees have been there forever and are a drag to the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Pats on the back aren't necessary, but they are free and (almost) better than money.
