    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.

    Benefits are nice especially if you have young ones. But you have to work there for at least a year.

    Love your employees and they will love you back.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Upper management genuinely cares about employees. The district manager is a very real person unlike many corporate type DM's with other companies. Best boss I've had in 20 plus years in the business.

    Cons

    Weekend shifts are not ideal. But definitely part of the schedule. I suppose most jobs of this nature require weekend shifts

    Advice to Management

    Maintain flexibility in scheduling
