    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.

    I worked at Kroger (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Unlimited opportunity for advancement!

    Cons

    They did not develop associates based on strengths and weaknesses. Needs were filled by the most senior associate first, forcing management to make up for their lack of expertise.

    Advice to Management

    All leadership positions should be sharing information on Kroger's scholarship, counseling services, and health services daily on their store walks. You can not lead by example with a coffee in one hand and pointing at others with the other!

    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked there 7 years. The first 3 years weren't easy . My fourth year I was making about 12-13 dollars an hour then 14 an hour my 5th year. The benefits are good

    Cons

    Starting out is low pay but stick it out.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees with listening ears.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    9$/hr is not bad for high school. The hours are very flexible, and co-workers are pretty cool for the most part.

    Cons

    Promotions do not occur. The more efficient cashiers are put onto express lanes, which require more work :(.

    Advice to Management

    Reward those who work the hardest. It feels as if I'll never be promoted or given any recognition for all I do for the company. Maybe I'm just entitled, I dont know.
