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

    Pros

    Get place to work... My managers are the best, some have a big mouth. Well just one. Anyway I'm a transfer and I have to say that this store has NO TEAMWORK ETHICS AT ALL.... TALK ABOUT NO I IN TEAM. VERY SAD TO SEE THIS. They say the employees are rude and co managers the same. I see it it just sucks that our customers see it as well.... I guess you can say this is my Pros and Cons in one. Sorry

    Cons

    Mixed feelings about this place....

    Advice to Management

    Goal is Loss Prevention.... Would be fabulous if I could get grocery manager
    , but like all I have to work my way up and I will prove that I am good for the company and the position....

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

    Pros

    Kroger is a great company to work for because of their employee recognition and job improvement programs. If you work hard and get along with the staff, the environment is very good.

    Cons

    Cons of working at Kroger include some difficult labor at some points in the time of the job. However, it is rare that these events happen, and if it does you can speak to a manager about it

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is that they need to hire more people just in case people do not show up or leave for another job. Sometimes having extra hires is not the worst idea.

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful staff. They are willing to work with your schedule, respect and disabilities or physical limits you may have and will work around them.

    Cons

    Very busy, and finicky management as per my experience. And in my experience as a bagger who also had to retrieve carts from the parking lot. We needed a water cooler especially during the summer and brought it to management's attention. However, it was not addressed until 4 months after bringing it to their attention, and we reminded them on a constant basis.

    Advice to Management

    Give more time to listen to your employees.
