    I worked at King Soopers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    most cases close to home, good co workers in the majority, hours are flexible on a case by case bases. more hours you work the more you get a raises.

    Cons

    You will be expected to do more and more with less incentive to do so. it can depend on the store manager and department you work in or if you are union or non union. the "more" will come from HIGH turnover at almost all stores, so in most experiances you will be doing 2 or 3 peoples job and expected to complete all tasks at or above normal standards while OVERTIME IN ALMOST ALL CASES WILL RESULT IN A NEGATIVE RESPONSE FROM MANAGERS AND IN MANY CASES WILL RESULT IN DISCIPLINE OR HOURS BEING CUT .

    the job will grind you down unless you find a good position that suites you, and even then managers move often, meaning one month you are a stellar employee and love your job and the next you are under performing and looking for any excuse to miss work

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, this is retail in the grocer business where MORE FOR LESS is what the customer wants and the employee gets LESS FOR MORE

    I have been working at King Soopers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent "reward" benefits such as discount tickets and care buying assistance, also 10% off anything you purchase that is a Kroger brand.

    Cons

    Not enough hours. Getting a higher paid position also takes too long. Even IF: you have a great deal of experience, you are articulate, you are more capable than other employees, and you've proven your worth. Bigger opportunities exist, but only if you're willing to relocate to any store they're able to throw at you.

    Advice to Management

    I understand honoring the "seniority" system but please acknowledge and reward the employees that go out of the way to make things easier. I know I personally go out of my way to do extra deep cleaning and facing when working front end, and so do most of my co-workers. Kind words or small gestures would mean a great deal!

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

    Pros

    A lot of my coworkers were nice and fun to be around.
    Some of the managers were great also.
    Gave me days off when I requested them.

    Cons

    Scheduling. You're pretty much at the bottom of the food chain when you first start working here, so they will schedule you for all the worst hours and you don't really get a choice in the matter.
    Days off are always random, and never the weekend it seems.
    Some managers talked about me and other employees behind our backs, saying negative things about us.
    Didn't discipline any of the people who were being lazy with their job, instead forced the hard workers to make up for what the lazy people failed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saying negative things about your coworkers, especially negative things about peoples personalities, and how you dislike them as people.

    Show more discipline to the people who don't do their job, it makes it so us hard workers just want to quit because you do nothing about it and let it continue.

    Pros

    Great promotions and benefits.

    Cons

    Co Workers compete with each other and scheduling was bad.

    Advice to Management

    If you show up and work hard they will notice and reward you. I learned a lot from this job and would love to come back. The only down side was the work schedule was not consistent and your hours will be all over the place.

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

    Pros

    I work at King Soopers click list, and I've been there for over a year. It is an okay place to work not the best, and not the worst by any stretch of the imagination it's just okay the first pro I have about King Soopers the coworkers are great for the most part. Working with customers and communicating with other people and listening to other people's stories is fulfilling.

    Cons

    But the cons to the company is poor management from the supervisors from many departments. You you're giving a very bad pay scale you get a raise based off the hours you work in total after a year you get a $0.30 pay raise that is not a lot. Second you get overworked very often you'll be given several 40 hour weeks or more but, you're given no opportunity for full-time and the clicklist department. The company also hires any random person off the streets Without Really interviewing them at all they really have to do is pass a drug test and not lie on their application.

    Advice to Management

    Actually interview the people you hire.
