    Pros

    The supervisors and management are more than willing to work with you on your availability. A lot of opportunities for promotion. Excellent Health Benefits along with 401K. Opportunity for Paid Scholarship. Opportunity to complete paid classes for a 2-year Management Certification course that comes included with certification and a degree diploma at no expense to you. Regular Paid Vacations based on the number of years working with the company. Culture is very supportive and open with the addition of always being open to feedback or counseling employees. Offers incentives and recognition for positive customer reviews/feedback. Overtime for working Federal Holidays, and guaranteed Christmas Day off.

    Cons

    Infrequent Pay Increases that may occur as little as once a year. Transferring from one store to another or getting a promotion can potentially take a long time.

    Pros

    COVID benefits include paid time off to quarantine, occasional $100 of Kroger credit and lots of fuel points. Employees get 15% off Kroger brand items (including simple truth, and other kroger brands) and 10% off other items. They also always have a department that needs help so if you want extra hours, it’s not hard to get here.

    Cons

    Kroger is a dirty company. While the compensation is nice, it’s not near that to HEB or Target. Working here will open your eyes to the major management flaws of this corporation. They will work you hard and long hours and your work may help your paycheck but not earn you anything long term. Starbucks usually has 1-3 people running a smaller version of a freestanding Starbucks but it’s the same amount of work. Be prepared to either get a difficult job, or slack your way through everything. It won’t matter, because they rarely fire people unless you call out a lot or don’t show up regularly.
