    I worked at Kroger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You learn the layout of the store. Making personal shopping less tedious.
    You get a 10% discount with your employee discount.
    You learn a lot about foods and the process made to make it sellable.
    They are pretty lax about scheduling.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible for the amount of work you do.
    They can be very shady about how they decide to let you know when/IF they let you go.
    The managers are usually compiled of cliques.
    They will take full advantage of your strengths and won't pay you a dime more.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect no matter the race.
