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

Pros

Kroger will hire people fresh out of college and give them a stable place to work. Decent benefits, good hours.

Cons

Kroger low-balls employees on salary until you get to certain levels of management. As do many big companies, Kroger values its middle and upper management more than it values the people actually getting the work done. Additionally, the company offers poor compensation for skilled employees, and holidays and other benefits are below the industry standard with regards to work in corp. Can't speak about the store level.

Advice to Management

Retain talent with better pay. Eliminate long-time managers who have been there for 15-30 years.

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

    Pros

    Customers and co-worker interaction. Rapport

    Cons

    Constant downsizing and Key Retailing

    Advice to Management

    Have floor walkers devoted to customer service. Increase manpower. Don't pull employees from one department to help another. You either serve the customers or the manufacturers.


  2. "If your looking to join the management team stop now!"

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

    Pros

    A very easy job if you can read and breath then you should have no problem

    Cons

    Even if you bust your butt there is no reward! Constantly hear we promote the people who make a difference. However unless you have an in with someone in upper management then you are about as useful as the trim from the meat department that gets thrown out all the time

    Advice to Management

    Promote people that make a difference not who you like to hang out with or is your family
