I worked at Kroger full-time

Pros

The company's size and strong name, particularly in the midwest and south, are a plus for employees. Strong training program for new managers with clear process for initial advancement. Health insurance is good and rates are low. Has its on credit union.

Cons

No clear path for advancement for most store management personnel. Long hours and moderate pay. Store management tends to get bogged down with issues and grievances from hourly employeees.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time

    Pros

    Inexpensive medical coverage, 401k, employee discount.

    Cons

    High stress, unrealistic expectations, no work/life balance. Continually adding new tasks to daily routine without the support to accomplish goals. Too many visits, meetings, conference calls.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees and they will take care of you. Give us profit sharing, sick days, and raises.

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

    Pros

    Good for a first job.

    Cons

    Poorly managed, terrible pay, long hours, forced overtime, inept union, limited advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to make every store identical, they aren't and won't ever be. Put a salary cap on CEO's to help employees get insurance/raises/live their lives...current ratio is 160/1. Stop giving manager's, MRs, coordinators, and office workers large bonuses. Give employees more opportunity to move up. Increase the pay for co-managers.
