Pros

Weekly paycheck at most Kroger stores.

Cons

You are working with teenagers, so if you are older you will be reminded of it everyday. Half of the employees just stand around and do nothing while you are working your butt off. The people definitely act their age and management does nothing when you complain.

Advice to Management

I would tell management to get a backbone and stop being pushovers. They have rules set up but they never enforce them thus people do what they want there.

    Pros

    the best reason to work at kroger are the people you work with. they awork around what you need. and when you request a day off you usually get it. its the perfect job for kids in college looking for extra cash!!!!!

    Cons

    some downsides of working at kroger are that there are no set schedule and you work nights and weekends. you also have some mean customers. there is a lady she comes in every week and after she checks out she come to the cutomer service desk and complains about everything that didnt go her way.

    store management needs help.

    Pros

    In this large a company, many opportunities exist for possible promotions. For someone willing to relocate, this is even more true. Its exciting to hear from upper management when they talk about where they started in the company and realize that, at some point, these avenues might be opened up for the next generation of managers.

    Cons

    Kroger works with a keen eye toward filling quotas. If you're not a minority, you slip to the bottom of the list for advancement in many cases. It seems to be more a matter of "replace a minority with a minority" (race, sex or both) to maintain the all-important quota. Secondly, the work-life balance program is great on paper, not so much if you work in the stores. Days off, holiday comp-days and vacations are continuously eliminated or postponed. The job is described as a 50 hour week (5 10 hour days) but often becomes 55 or 60 hours with no one taking notice.

    Advice to Management

    Take a chance on the new yet insightful employees. There is a lot of experience, though not all with Kroger, and a lot of good ideas in the lower ranks of management.
