    Pros

    Great team to work with,
    Rotating responsibilities so it doesn't get boring

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't recognize hard work or customer service, they just want to cut our hours and resources to save money.

    Advice to Management

    When a location meets/exceeds all goals given to them, don't punish them / ignore all the progress they make.

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

    Pros

    Friendly environment, 10% discount, flexible.

    Cons

    Pay, hours, lots of drama if you're in the front end & if you we're an office worker, almost all of that time will be spent by yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay to compete with other retail stores & follow company policy instead of cutting corners to increase bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Pretty easy job overall to be honest. Working in the dairy department allowed for autonomy and working at my own pace. Management generally leaves you alone as long as you have what you need on the shelves.

    Cons

    Constant calls to come in on off days or to stay over. Pay was inreasonable considering what comparable stores start you out at. Walmart, Costco, Sams all pay much more. No real ability to progress upward through the company past department manager.

    Advice to Management

    -Hire the amount of people the store actually needs in order to operate efficiently
    -Listen to employee concerns and complaints

    Pros

    They are a amazing family to work for, it also helps people how to learn new and exciting things . I really enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    You may get sick of eating donuts which sounds impossible and terrible but it happens lol that's about the only downside of working there

    Advice to Management

    They were wonderful people to work for, they treat you like family and would help in anyway they could.
