    I worked at Kroger (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not too bad hours, had another job and vacation. They were quite flexible when I told them upfront. But the manager interviewing me was then transferred to another store so the newer one was all confused when I had vacation AFTER I CLEARED IT WITH THE OLD MANAGER. She assured me she would tell the new manager.

    Cons

    Some staff in the Deli were soooo picky; they would make issues with me just because I was the youngest by a good decade.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees

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

    Pros

    If you're in school, they're really flexible with your schedule. There's opportunities to move up, especially on the front end.

    Cons

    It's retail and the customer is always right. If you don't like customer service don't pick this job. There's a lack of concern for the employees and customers are basically allowed to be unreasonable and still get their way.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your employees like trash

    Re-train management at Clarkston, MI (Dixie Hwy) location. Organization is horrible.

    I worked at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    It was close to home

    Cons

    I never met my manager.

    Catty women.

    Was told they had assumed one of the bakery employees would quit because turnover was so high(they had hired 2 of us at once and I was the most recent hire) but since none of the workers left I was let go.

    Pay

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire for positions you don't actually have

    Pros

    Busy environment and time goes by very quickly. Always something to keep you busy. Regular customers are very friendly.

    Cons

    Rude coworkers and clickish, just like in High School. Some of the management has their favorites and it's so obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees

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

    Pros

    Kroger is very good at working around your personal schedule and giving you your requested time off.

    Cons

    The quality of people you have to work with isn't the most professional. Most are petty and drama seeking.

    The chance of you getting a holiday off (ie Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Easter, or New Years) is pretty slim when you're new since the scheduling goes by seniority.

    Everybody knows your business. While for the most part I like the management at Kroger- they have an issue with staying professional with confidentiality. I've been in the office multiple times using a computer or copy machine and can easily overhear a manager talking about an employee's personal business- sometimes even cracking jokes about it.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is basically in my "Cons" section. Just be more professional and confidential. It'll gain you and the company more respect.
