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

    Pros

    -Sometimes get good hours
    -Sometimes get stuck with good management
    -Will give a job to anyone
    -Almost impossible to get fired

    Cons

    -Pay
    -Asked to work harder than usual and move around to different departments so you can pick up the slack from the bad workers and also so they don't have to hire anyone full-time
    -Bad management
    -Won't fire bad employees
    -Sometimes not enough hours
    -Will not hire full-time
    -Will hire teenagers before people that are qualified, lost their job, and are trying to provide for a family

    Advice to Management

    Actually care about people in this world who are try to make a living to support their families instead of saving a penny. I was told that there is absolutely no way I could make the same amount of money that people who have been there for 20 years make now, even if I worked there for 50 years. Now tell me how I am suppose to have motivation.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    -The coworkers are friendly and I didn't have any complaints with them.
    -There is a culture among the front line workers that makes jumping in fairly easy and enjoyable
    -The perks of cheaper food made it nice to work there while going to school.

    Cons

    -There isn't really opportunity for advancement for anyone that doesn't want to sell their soul to the Kroger brand. As someone who worked two jobs and attended school I was basically told to quit the other job and end school (graduate or leave) so that I could devote myself fully.
    -Managers don't respect the workers drive and when a motivated employee comes they become a pack mule of burden.
    -Hours fluctuated so much at my location it was impossible to consider it a primary job.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the enthusiastic employees. Don't bury them with a laughably unbalanced work load to the rest of the team.
