    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at King Soopers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Why be dishonest...there are truly none.

    Cons

    Toxic environment; incompetent management; undervalued employees; completely void of identifying and developing high performing, game changing people; etc.; etc.

    Advice to Management

    Really? From the top of the executive tree down to store management team...you REALLY need hourly wage employees to give you advice?? If so, then why are you even in the position you're in now?? Just announce your resignation effective immediately and let a high quality leader who cares about people first step in to drive some positive and lasting change.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at King Soopers full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you're on an old contract you may have some nice vacation time and benefits.

    Cons

    Atrocious management style from the top down. Incentivization consists primarily of nonstop "walks", a practice where upper management comes into the store and browbeats/nitpicks what few employees remain. Other typical management practices include: 1) demanding that impossible amounts of work be done in a completely unreasonable time frame by mostly untrained staff. 2) promising "rewards" such as paid lunches etc....

    Advice to Management

    Do the opposite of everything you're doing. Seriously. Worst management in the world.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at King Soopers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Salary better than hourly, report directly to store manager, and lots of invited to free tastings

    Cons

    Low pay, 10+ hour expectation, constant scrutiny from district and executive team, being told to help other areas of store with no additional profit. Bonus potential is low given they find new ways to make payouts worse.

    Current Employee - Assistant Meat Manager in Denver, CO

    I have been working at King Soopers full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pretty good pay, nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Holidays super busy, help isn't always that great. You have to be able to figure things out on your own.

    Advice to Management

    It's a hard job market in Denver. The union controlling wages for every store makes it hard to adequately staff each store in Denver that has different needs.

    I worked at King Soopers part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There's a union that makes it hard to get fired

    The union makes the people who are bad at their job keep their job making no room for improvement as seniority is the #1 thing at the company
