    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.

    Allow depts. to have input on who works in their Dept.

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

    Pros

    Kroger encourages employees to work toward their goals within the company. My division's Vice President started with Kroger as a bagger while in school. What is great about Kroger is the diversity of positions - real estate, yes, legal, yes, graphics, yes, IT, yes, and many, many more. Few companies offer the range of positions or the geographic possibilities that Kroger can offer with divisional offices in several regions.

    Cons

    Only for the teen/very young adults - don't walk out on a position with Kroger. That is stressed at Kroger - those who walk out on a position will never be rehired. At the very least, give 2 weeks notice so that later in life, you can possibly come back.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your employees - if something isn't going right, they need your support to make upper management aware of the situation in order to make the necessary changes.

    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.
