    Pros

    Some pros that I've experienced working at Kroger's as a cashier are Flexibility, polite coworkers, and great management team. They hire people to come through your line so if you actually enjoy your job they'll notice the good work you put into ever Customer.

    Cons

    Some cons working at Kroger's that I have experienced is rude customers even when you're completely nice. Some coworkers who don't enjoy their job so they don't help when it's needed or necessary.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Majority of people are fun to work with especially as high school or college student.
    Always something to do, no standing around doing nothing.
    Employee discount on Kroger brand items.

    Cons

    Management is a joke, all they care about is sucking up to corporate.
    Coordinators and upper management are way out of touch with how a grocery store actually works.
    Union rewards lazy people just as much as hard-working employees, everything is based on seniority, not work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, I brought up multiple issues, and ideas and of course nothing was done about them.

    Pros

    Honestly, aside from extra fuelpoints there really isn't.

    Cons

    Crappy pay. Been here 2 years as a grocery clerkand only making 8.60 an hour!

    Union stops merit based raises.

    Damn near impossible to get full time. I got mine on a technicality.

    Corporate screws you over by cutting hours but wanting the same amount if not more work done.

    Management refuses to relocate employees to help in other departments

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, steady hours available. Drug GM position had less involvement with customers, which was nice. Mostly stocking shelve (by yourself), never worked late. Definitely recommend for high schoolers.

    Cons

    Standard stuff you wouldn't appreciate at a minimum wage job, but nothing exceptionally terrible. If you're bad a being on-time, the late policy may not work for you.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management, pretend like you care about the people that work for you
