      I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 20 years

      Pros

      Very clear expectations. Health benefits. Internal promotions allow opportunity for growth.

      Cons

      Union. Really only protects those who don't carry their weight and make it through the new hire screening process. Really makes an excessively unnecessary burden on those who do have pride and integrity to doing a good job.
