    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
