    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some opportunities, but rare for management. The opportunities exist in the store but less people are taking advantage of them as they see what others are going through.

    Cons

    Micro management to the extreme. Store management are being put on probation and then fired. Abusive upper management. They walk your store every week and only find what's wrong. Very negative, stressful, oppressive work atmosphere. And they don't care , they know they are bullies and they have no plans to change that. They have created a large Workforce that no longer cares because you can only take being beat up so much and then you just quit

    Advice to Management

    The more I read about successful companies, the more I see you haven't read the same articles.

    Pros

    None. I've tried but am at a loss.

    Cons

    Why would Kroger not match an employee's 401K investment? That doesn't bode well when you're looking for an employer to provide support or dedication. Why work there?

    Advice to Management

    Stop looking @ the current sliding bottom line. Make some change & utilize the departments that make money & support the employees in those departments buy significantly increasing there pay & any certification dues they may incure.

    Pros

    Insurance. That’s about the only pro to working for this concentration camp.

    Cons

    I promise you there’s not even enough space to type all of that here..

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating your employees like dogs and threatening them on a daily basis! Unbelievably corrupt. Someone higher up needs to do some undercover investigations at some of these toxic stores to see what is TRULY going on behind the scenes. Its sad sickening. You’ve lost some truly wonderful hard working employees over the years because of these “allowed conditions” that we work in, and you can’t even trust reaching out to anyone because that is sure to bite you in the behind, resulting in retaliation/punishment/harassment. God help this company.

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

    Pros

    Employee discounts are not much but does help

    Cons

    Management won’t help you if you are having trouble with a co worker. Will hire you on part time but make you work full time hours with no benefits. Female manager gossips to other employees. Opportunities to move up in the company is rare. Poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees who are having problems and actually do something to help them!! When you promise you will work with a school schedule upon hire you should honor that.

    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Toward the end when I quit there were no pro's. No room for advancement, abusive co workers, smear campaigns that went on unchecked. Management did nothing but shrug their shoulders and tell me its a union shop, they could not just fire people for covert harassment. This company encourages narcissistic abuse and covert type abuse. Is internally competitive, childish and juvenile. Beware of something called the culture council as well. There is usually a psychopath that leads this cult to brainwash other employees to think everything is ok within the company and to over look covert abuse, rumors slander and smear campaigns

    Cons

    Everything. After working for this company for over 10 years full time in the same department and same store I came to realize that I was just being used as a scapegoat for other peoples insecurities within the store. Lazy sociopathic co workers that create the illusion that their contributions are important when they are not while smearing all the good workers and creating a nightmarish workplace environment. If anyone has any self respect they will not stay at an evil place like this. Unions should go away because they are part of the problem and devolution of retail business.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the narcissism before it gets rid of you.
