    Treat your employees with more respect, and don't get mad when employees do something you don't like when the employee handbook says it is what you should do.

    "courtesy clerk/ bagger"

    I have been working at King Soopers part-time

    Pros

    You can get promoted fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Management expects too much out of you for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay the courtesy clerks/ baggers more than just $9.00. and give set schedules to those that have families, second job or going to school. Equipped the cc's and head clerk with hand radio for communication when out doing carts.

    Pros

    It was an ok job for the 3 years I worked here. Look, it helped me get me my first car which is great.

    Cons

    Did you know what I had to do to get that car? Work overnights when I didn't have to due to "seniority" which is complete bull. Holidays? What are those? If you want to go to school, then quit. King Soopers does not give a rat's tooth about you wanting to better yourself. They would rather make you management and after that point say good bye to your life all together. And did I mention the sexual harassment I got? Yeah! As a female I had to deal with my male co-workers talking about what's in my pants and that I should use this razor to shave. And did I go to management and the union about this? YES! And what happened? "Oh well you see, that guy has a mental disability called asburger and that means he doesn't know what he is saying." So me and tons of other female employees get to deal with this and he gets off scott free?! Just because he says he has a condition?! And even to customers too he pulls this kind of act. Or how about the other male co-worker that enjoyed "massaging" other co-workers without consent? Oh he doesn't get fired cause I am uncomfortable about some creep touching me. No I get sent to overnight shifts in grocery as to "not cause conflict".
    So if you are a female looking to work for this company, don't.

    Advice to Management

    Ummmmm, how about you care about ALL your employees and not act like some king who doesn't have to do a thing?! OR how about getting rid of employees that can't follow common sense (i.e. stop the sexual harassment!)

    I worked at King Soopers (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started working part time at king soopers because i needed a 2nd job, they were amazing at start with flexible schedule, cool management...
    I thought i would never leave.

    Cons

    the first days were ok, with a minor discomfort from who i assumed was a manger because i didn't know the status & who expected from me to know the job before getting trained...
    the pay rate was minimum wage 8.23$/h.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees so they would not think about leaving at the first occasion.

    I worked at King Soopers part-time

    Pros

    The 10%discount on all Kroger products or simply fit products anything Kroger related. They are flexible with your schedule.

    Cons

    Even if your part time they want you to join the union. The union takes out dues every paycheck. When you ask what is the union doing for me? They can't give you a real answer other than they help keep you employed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on keeping the stores clean and we'll stocked. Thank you for caring for the cart attendants.

    Fast paced, good coworkers, felt like a necessary component to the deli. Hard work and rewarding pay. Fair breaks and good customer interaction.

    Cons

    The managers didnt understand what to do when there were issues, impatient customers, really short staffed and was hard to keep good employees

    I have been working at King Soopers full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, employee discount

    Cons

    No work-life balance whatsoever, the company owns you, low morale, store managers have no trust in their department managers, micromanaging of schedules and policies, company is too reactive (resorting to punishment at the slightest infraction) rather than proactive (giving employees necessary training), insufficient tools and equipment to do ones job efficiently (broken/missing handhelds etc)

    Advice to Management

    Too many assistant managers in the stores. Stop promoting anyone with a pulse to be an assistant store manager. Most are young and cocky and have very little retail experience to back up their title but arrive in the store fresh out of MD1 ready to fire good employees. Move "problematic" store managers around more often. Our store manager has been driving customers and employees off like flies, the store is a shadow of what it used to be, yet this manager retains their position with no repercussions and is going on three years of tyranny. Maybe loss prevention needs to be watching shoplifters more often and focusing less about where employees are parking or how long they are going on breaks. With each raise, it seems this company is determined to suck the soul from its employees. Not the way to do business and retain employees! Your company values are honesty, integrity, inclusion, safety, diversity and respect, maybe try demonstrating those values instead of merely paying them lip service.
