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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, easygoing environment, chance of advancement. Customers are generally very friendly and easygoing.

    Cons

    Management can be a little spacey sometimes. Was put on the schedule several times even when made clear that I'd be unavailable.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with workers. Managers should always know what's going on.

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

    Pros

    Start off (at my location at least), a dollar above minimum wage. This being my First Job, this sounded great! Friendly people, lots of work culture. Very laid back, flexible schedule, easy to get more or less hours, change availability, and get time off. President recognizes your work, you get surveyed by customers who want to leave a review and the president gives you a little award, a pin. Feels nice! Made a lot of friends here, glad this is my first job. I recommend to anyone looking for an easy way to ease into the working world. Also, they have a Union, which personally I'm not in but they're very cheap, you dont have to pay much of anything to be in, and they're effective. Good people have your back, even if you AREN'T in it. Part time workers will get paid time off after one year, insurance, healthcare, etc....

    Cons

    Legs hurt horribly by the end of your shift. You get these crappy comfort mats and by time you work just 4 hours your legs are shot. Ive tried getting better shoes and inserts to no avail.... Also, you'll have to work with people who NEED to be fired, but for whatever reason they keep them there despite several warnings. I got yelled at for calling in sick only twice over the past months because of bad illness, but theres these people being extremely rude constantly and messing around and they don't get even a look?

    Advice to Management

    We need to be able to walk around more and do other things here an there. It hurts too much to lock my legs for so long, even after doing stretches and moving weight around. We only have crappy little rugs

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

    Pros

    10% Discount on Kroger items

    Cons

    Low pay ($7.55), Very monotonous, Was fired because of a change in company policy that required one shift per week, which as a college student I was unable to do.

    Advice to Management

    Doesn't make much sense to fire college students, then hire and train a new set of seasonal workers each year. About half of the front end was replaced.

    Pros

    Willing to work with your availability

    Cons

    Minimum wage starting pay, must start at entry level position, little to no opportunity for raise as reward

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees to do their job well by offering potential for raises based on how well they work, not exclusively how long they've been there.
