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

Pros

Management is outstanding where I worked, and did everything they could to help me. This company is great for students because of the flexible hours and student benefits like tuition assistance.

Cons

Due to the high number of associates, it's extremely difficult to move from a part-time position to a full-time one. Upper management loves to micromanage each store and "fix what isn't broken", if you will. The pay could be better, but what else would expect from a supermarket?

Advice to Management

Stop micromanaging and let the stores govern themselves as long as goals are being met.

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

    Pros

    -Flexible hours
    -Reasonably pleasant work environment

    Cons

    -Start at minimum wage, takes many years to build up to a decent wage
    -Difficult to attain full-time status

    Advice to Management

    Pass some of the coin on to your employees - Kroger's CEO, Dave Dillon, got a 2/3 increase in total compensation in 2011, with nearly 3 million cash. Despite the fact that many positions at Kroger involve menial work, we deserve better for contributing to Kroger's overall success.
