    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.
