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

    Pros

    Cosistant pay check, co workers

    Cons

    Absolutely horrid corporate figure heads! No direction constantly changing wasting valuable time and resources, no idea of what they want to be!

    Advice to Management

    Management is extremely incompetent except for a handful of quality people! Dennis Gibson is a tool who would do great as a used car salesman!

    Friendly enough but not managed well.

    Hire more staff for the busy times and less for the less busy times.

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

    Pros

    Decent pay, if you're actually considered for anything Assistant department manager and higher. Some relevant (albeit very outdated) classes you take for free. Health insurance and opportunities for other benefits

    Cons

    Depressing pay for the clerks, a SEVENTY FIVE percent turnover rate within the first 30 days, hard on the body (lifting, constant standing). Work moral has dipped since Kroger and King Soopers have started implementing quantity over quality standards. Not a day would go by where I wasn't being reprimanded and threatened with "key retailing is coming in, you better do this and that". Health inspections, constant department walks to scare the employees into working harder, even though we were barely trained, if at all. My mental health has improved significantly from removing king Soopers from my life.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees. And when you want to implement new strategies (marketing, key retailing, whatever) remember that your employees are human beings.

    Pros

    Benefits are good people are mostly friendly and you get a lot of overtime pay especially during the holiday season

    Cons

    Always understaffed!!!!! No organization with scheduling and too much overtime all the time which wears the employees out. Also it is hard to move up the ladder of seniority in some departments

    Advice to Management

    It's ok to appreciate people every now and then


  11. "I worked at King Soopers for 4 years"

    I worked at King Soopers part-time

    Pros

    They have good benefits. Some coworkers were fun to work with. Made a lot of friends.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care in helping you with a good flexible schedule when needed. They have no consideration to employees and don't care if you have a life out of King Soopers. There is also a lot of favoritism going on.

    Advice to Management

    Need better management that are interested with engaging with employees and willing to help work with you on scheduling when needed. There shouldn't be any favoritism everyone should be treated the same.
