    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High associate engagement and appreciation for the contributions of associates. Good benefits including, medical, dental, vision, 401k contributions and more.

    Cons

    None. Except, some may plateau with few options for growth. However, If you are looking for a workplace of world class standards and staying power, this is the one. Many associates retire here with 40+ years with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive in breaking barriers to reach new heights.

    Pros

    Good employee and love our customers

    Cons

    50 he week min for salaried management.
    Red Tape makes simply doing your job a struggle every day. We have a report for everything and more added all the time. Bogs down management and therefore always feel like you're playing catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Hourly employees need to make more money, period. Not a measly .5 or .25 more. They need substantial raises. Pay them more, quality of employee and morale will improve drastically. Stop the "Us vs. Them" mentality. Get to know your people. Are they married? Do they have kids? Do any of them have issues that are important to them, that may affect their job (disabled spouse or child, for employees and family) Do they like to attend church (scheduling can usually work around it). How long have they worked there. What's the background? Are any of them Veterans? Simple things can make a world of difference. Let them KNOW you care. I tell my employees To call me if they need something. Got too drunk and need a ride home instead of being stupid. Call me...I might not be thrilled but I'd rather be upset than have a dead employee. I promise you that if more of salaried management did that you'd see the positive results very quickly.

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

    Pros

    Have been with the company for 7 years... I am surrounded by other who have been there for 15, 30, 40+ years. It's incredible.

    Cons

    It's retail. It's hard to work retail hours, holidays, and summers. If you are not relocatable your career path could be narrow. Being an ASM can be difficult as you are moved around alot.

    Advice to Management

    Quality of life is talked about often but it is not appreciated and employee time off is not honored they way it should be. One can be made to work while or or made to feel guilt for being off.

    Stable company. Lot of opportunities. Good benefits.

    Work-personal life balance is hard since it is the retail world and the hours are demanding, mainly working weekends and holidays

    I worked at Kroger (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Kroger (or most stores, at least) do an awesome job of hiring great people. I started working with Kroger when I was 16 and stuck with it through college and beyond. It can be such a family-like atmosphere that keeps you invested.

    Cons

    Management, whether at a store, district, or division level, is often misaligned. As an assistant store manager, you're expected to complete your role while also knowing (and often doing) every other job in the store. Add that in to them often over using top talent for other roles and special projects across the district, poor work-life balance, and low compensation makes it difficult to maintain a positive view of the company and your job.

    Advice to Management

    In-store management: Your hourly associates are your greatest asset, so learn to communicate and treat them accordingly. District and division staff: understand what the real issues are in-store and why they cannot maintain store conditions. If you haven't worked in a store in the past 2 or more years, you are probably out of touch with how things work where the rubber meets the road.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, you can specify what days you available and not available.
    Excellent benefits, all employees get 10% off all kroger brands. Tons for partner companies from Apple to Ford.
    Plenty of positions and store locations to choose from, there is plenty to do at Kroger.

    Cons

    Extremely extremely bad hourly wage, barebone minimum wage for most if not all new employees.
    The yearly raises is just 25 cents a year, yes a quarter to your hourly pay from ONCE form an ENTIRE YEAR which is utter asinine.
    Full-time is very hard to get, I've been working for more then a year and have not been able to get full time at my store.

    Advice to Management

    Have an open door policy, where employees can voice their concerns and suggestions to better their stores and eventually the whole company.
    Have more attentions to other divisions like Atlanta, and not just your home city of Cincinnati.
