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

Pros

It was something to do during college that worked with my hours. They were pretty flexible with scheduling. Other employees were very friendly and helpful.

Cons

Managers were often rude, incompetent, etc. They often used tactics against workers, but then tried to promote a "team" environment. I've heard it's been better since I left

    Pros

    Safe working environment, Employee discount, friendly employees.

    Cons

    Low pay, dysfunctional scheduling, poor communication between management and employees, and Union run.

    Advice to Management

    Please take better care of all employees. From baggers to managers. Part-time and Full-time. A team manager takes care of all team mates. If you don't take care of your employees it's not going to give them any incentive to continue working very hard for you. 5 cents twice a year isn't going to cut it.


  2. "Good Union company to work for but you have to start out at min wage and work your way up to better salary or position."

    I worked at Kroger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and many positions to choose from. The staff is very polite and respectful. There is always something to do. You are given many hours in other departments once they get to know you work well and are reliable.

    Cons

    Cashiers are timed, as in many other grocery stores, and feel too much pressure to reach the top 100% of a list called the cashier performance sheet. The list is posted at a wall that the customers and other employees can see but the ones who work for the company as cashiers for years do not worry about being at the top in fact, they are at the bottom of the list making you wonder what all the fuss is for. It feels harassing at times to reach those top percentages. It is used to make sure that the customer has a fast checkout.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge speed in a more human friendly way. People are NOT and NEVER will be robots. Have more compassion for the human body and the normal physical limitations.
    People will shop at your store more if they have a more friendly and happy cashier and service than a fast, rushed and unfriendly one. They may shop at the store just because it is closer to their house regardless of negative experiences. That is just logic. You have the costumer at HELLO!!!
