I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Ceiling is as high (or low) as you want it to be. Many high level executives started as part time associates in our stores.

Cons

Work-Life balance is poor. Entry level management work 50+ hours each week mostly consisting of night,s weekends, and holidays.

Advice to Management

Find a way to promote into positions and departments people are passionate about without years spent in Store Management. We're missing out on bright people who aren't patient enough to wait 3-5 years to advance into the positions they're passionate about, especially after earning a college degree.

Accountability is lacking in some levels of Management. At times, it creates animosity toward peers who under-perform and keep their position or even get promotions.

    Pay attention to the workforce of the company. Courtesy Clerks and cashiers get severely mistreated.
