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

    Pros

    Benefits of being in the union provide job security and help make up for the lower pay. The people you work with are really nice, and the customers are understanding.

    Cons

    Low wages starting make it hard to live off your income. Also it's difficult to schedule around other responsibilities like school and second jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to employees

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

    Pros

    The job is fairly intuitive and easy to get a handle on, coworkers were cool and willing to help you out, customers were friendly, relaxed environment for the most part

    Cons

    Not much on the job training beforehand (had to learn as you went along), disconnect between managers, certain managers better/more reasonable than others regarding work-life balance, only knowing your schedule a week in advance, inconsistencies in hours worked week-to-week

    Advice to Management

    More guided on-the-floor training for all areas of the job

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

    Pros

    Health care, paid breaks , union job,easy going but be prepared to work especially if it's a midnight shift.. I do stock, physical demanding & challenging cause the pay could be better, got to love getting 40hrs but being part time...but when they cut hours your screwed! Paid weekly, offers direct deposit & sometimes the company gives you free food. Some of the people are really nice, but remember trust no one, ' cause you can get thrown under the bus very quickly!

    Cons

    Will not hire for full time, you have to be there for years to sign a bid to get a full time job. Some store mangers make me wonder how did you get this job or you hate this job so much you make your employees miserable!!!

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

    Pros

    Works around my class hours

    Cons

    Management has no clue what we go through
    Policy and organization on Backroom changing weekly
    We are left picking up day crew slack while also tearing down fresh truck(s)

    Advice to Management

    Understand what we go through daily.
    Implement new rules/ organization AFTER talking with us to see what works and what does not, not before.
    Get on day crew for them not following product placement rules (shelf tags, SRP Logo, backstock, etc...)
