    I worked at King Soopers full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    10% discount on Kroger items, union representation

    Cons

    No control of schedule until you have 17 years of seniority, customer services skills aren't valued, only numbers and dollar signs

    Advice to Management

    Kings is going to quickly go the way of the dinosaurs if they don't change. People aren't putting up with the old-skool style of management where employees are expected to eat manure for 10+ years until they "earn" a say in their work. These days you can easily find a better job elsewhere, or go drive for Uber, or whatever. Most of the grocery store jobs can and should be done by robots anyway.

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

    Pros

    I've worked for Kings twice and I will say that both times I've had a great crew and made friends that I maintain to this day. It can really be a good team to belong to.

    Cons

    My biggest complaints, both times, would be; no consistency of expectations, management doesn't listen to (or seem to care about) employees. Other than that, they're always understaffed and don't pay well, though I suppose they can't do much about those two.

    Advice to Management

    The company used to have a reputation for being a great place to work or start somebody's work history. It's not impossible to regain that status. I'd start by having the same behavioral expectations of management as you do of the employees working the floor.

    Pros

    The pay for what you are doing is not that bad, and the insurance rocks. The insurance is one of the reasons why a lot of people stay.

    Cons

    The hours suck. Your shifts flux way to much.

    Advice to Management

    Listen.

    I worked at King Soopers part-time

    Pros

    There are no pros to working this job.

    Cons

    You don't get your schedule more than a week in advance and they can change it with no notice whatsoever. They can force you to stay later than you were originally scheduled or to come in earlier than scheduled. You make minimum wage and they expect women to be out pushing carts at 10 at night. I was being harassed by a car full of guys yelling sexual things at me while I was pushing carts and did not feel safe so I had my fiance follow behind me while I did carts at night. Of course management got angry about that and said he couldn't follow me despite the fact that I told them what happened and that I did not feel safe.

    Advice to Management

    You can't force your employees to work whenever you please despite their schedule. There is no way they can have any kind of life or make any plans like that. How are they supposed to make a doctor's appointment for instance? Stop forcing women to push carts in general and especially at night! That is not what I agreed to when I was hired.

    Pros

    Decent pay, Some cool co-workers

    Cons

    Management doesn't notice hard workers. Managers have no power. Everyone is trying to advance so you must step on other's toes to progress

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to people with potential. Don't promote based off of friendly relationships but promote off of potential.
