    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, regular days and hours

    Cons

    Stressful, constantly have to correct employees and other management on mistakes, nobody did this job on days off allowing it to pile up, no grocery manager so store management put almost all responsibilities on cao, if anyone one person called in all management expected cao to do their job along with their own

    Advice to Management

    Allow Cao to do their job and maybe step in to help if you lose other department management

    Pros

    Good Benefits. Most employees are nice

    Cons

    You get bullied by upper Management . Turn over rate is at 80%. Almost everybody in lower Management have break downs. They don’t take care of the employees. I would not recommend King Soopers

    Advice to Management

    Treat Employees with respect and you wouldn’t have 80% turn over rate

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck. 10% Employee Discount on company brands
    Kroger
    Private Selections
    Pssst
    etc
    In store Starbucks gives us 10% discount and my nearby subway too.

    Cons

    Pay is not good. i never get the days off i request. when i have a high fever they make you come in.
    We have to work holidays but we new employees don’t get payed time and a half :(

    Advice to Management

    They need to care for the employees. If you don’t do anything about it. It’s no wonder everyone is quitting.
    They should back us up when customers are yelling at you and we cant really defend ourselves.

    Pros

    If you do not mind the everyday BS of not having the help it is ok to work for.

    Cons

    Never any help as far as baggers and cashiers and other areas of the store are short handed. Customers have to bag their own groceries all the time. Always getting breaks and lunches late or not at all half of the time. Head clerks are almost always on registers or not at all running the front end like they should

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

    Pros

    You get 2 weeks worth of schedules so you can plan a "life". If this is your first job you can really make a career of it because you don't have to get 2-3 jobs just to live.

    Cons

    They will schedule you the bare minimum and then make you work more so having a life is not an option. Don't expect a lot of hours because if it's not a busy store or you are bottom seniority you will get 20-24. I had to practically beg them to give me the proper equipment just to do my job. You are supposed to get 2 shirts and they only gave me 1. Also they say they give you hours for similar work over the past 10 years, well they didn't give me the hours and I could never get that fixed because the only person that could fix it was only there 2 days a week in the morning and never when I'm there.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have the secretary work 2 stores and don't have just a sink or swim mentality with the new hires.


  7. "Think before apply a job."

    I have been working at King Soopers part-time

    Pros

    A good place to shop and low prices you can find (if you are not an employee)

    Cons

    Don't work there, that's my advice. But if you want to work there, please be careful with these people, don't take any breaks or shop where you work, Go shop where else and take a break when you are at home after shift. Just work throughout the shift without anything else. Don't expect from management. You will get nothing but do the manager's order, that's it. Go look for a better job if it is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Give on the job training. Stop making revenge. Give respect. Or just leave.

    Pros

    Some people are fun to work with

    Cons

    Management is downright terrible, pay is terrible, raises are small and only attainable after years of work, and everyone has the "leave the work for the next guy" attitude because there are no incentives to work hard since raises are based off a timetable and time off and best shifts are based on seniority. Also, Management doesn't take responsibility for anything. I worked there for a year and never had any of my managers work past noon, then they were angry when the closers who haven't seen a manager in months don't do something exactly how and when a manager wants.

    Advice to Management

    Make some incentive to work hard and take more responsibility for your department. Close several nights a week, problem solve instead of just throwing blame around, and be more understanding of part-timers in school (I had a manager tell me that my part-time meat clerk job had to take priority over my college education and continuously scheduled me during my classes and exam times).

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

    Pros

    You can get your shopping done after your shift

    Cons

    Awful management!!! They constantly give you more and more work and there is no pay increase. Other staff members call in sick a lot! They constantly 'write employees up' for not being able to finish their work. There aren't enough people to get all the work done. You will be written up for overtime if you stay to get your work done

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so abusive.
