    I worked at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    You can get benefits after one year of employment even as a part time employee. The work hours are very flexible.

    Cons

    The front end was very unorganized at the time I was employed and the pay wasn't very good for the work that I was doing which is why I quit. I even let store management know my concerns and they didn't really make any changes. If it wasn't for those two cons I would still be there today.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to your associates when we express our concerns about our work environment and how we feel we are valued as employees.

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

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Above average vacation time, tend to have good co-workers and in our store, decent management

    Cons

    Poor scheduling based on anticipated sales, leading to overtime and frustration at not being able to complete the job in the time allotted. Not enough equipment at times.

    Advice to Management

    Could use a little better top down communication. Tend to leave people hanging when policies are changed, or they have a problem with an employee.
