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 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + sales associates were cool and hard working and very kind
    + the managers were good at motivating us
    + they hire people with little to no experience
    + it's a paycheck

    Cons

    + management was a bit too demanding as far as the way they feel you should behave on the job when you're only getting paid minimum wage smh
    + they treat you like you're expendable, which I guess you are, but they will let you go by cutting your hours and then "letting you go" mysteriously without explanation
    + one of my managers was very rude and disrespectful
    + they either give you too many hours or too little

    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.
