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

    Pros

    Kroger Company has great insurance, competitive pay, and great people working there. Although some may say that Kroger isn’t the way it used to be, it’s a great start for anyone looking for a part time job.

    Cons

    Although Kroger is a great company, some locations don’t have the same integrity and pace as others. Being a college student, transferring back and forth was something that I planned to do; after taking the correct steps managers and other personnel did not produce any results to my needs on time which ended up in me losing my job.

    Advice to Management

    Please make sure that all of your personnel are on the same page and sensitive to certain aspects dealing with your employees and customers.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, especially with school both highschool and college. Paid time off even for part time after being there for nine months or a year, can't remember. Health insurance options with the company even for part time. Generally happy with my coworkers and management, though that can vary with each store.

    Cons

    Not the best pay, as grocery competitors in my area pay more for the same position. Depending on the store, old clunky technology (like my location's self checkout machines that I worked with). Can be called in at any time that isn't requested time off, though this can be a plus for people who are always happy to have more hours.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other, there were many times where I would tell a couple of managers about something that happened or something that is wrong, that they would assure me wouldn't happen again, yet none of the managers were ever on the same page. They'd even all tell me something different regarding things like coupon policy.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only company who would consider hiring me after caring for a parent with Alzheimers for years. While I appreciate that, I expected much more from a company with such potential.

    Cons

    They do not review your resume or qualifications for advancement. If they had reviewed my qualifications when they hired me, they could have utilized my qualifications to build a better company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the children you hire like children. Do not treat the mature adults you hire as children. Take time to listen to employees who quite possibly have more experience than you do, you may just learn something that would be useful to the company.

    I worked at Kroger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Stability for associates who perform well. Great environment to work in if you can manage to avoid the politics and drama. Opportunity to advance unless you work in a smaller store. Then enjoy stagnation! Doesn't take much to get in if you want to work for Kroger.

    Cons

    Because Atlanta Kroger is Unionized everyone is pretty much the same. You get paid the same wage at that position. Unless you come in with experience under your belt. Management will also work you hard if you let them. I was a cashier but doing my managers job with no extra pay. I gave them a year and I quit.

    Advice to Management

    You need to hold your department managers accountable to do their own work. Its not fair to have an associate getting paid half the hourly rate of a department manager to do their work. Get it together.
