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

    Pros

    When you can do a floor sweep.
    When you can go on lot.
    When there are no customers.
    When you can do go backs.

    Cons

    Disrespectful managers. Disrespectful customers. Can't get a raise even after six months or two years of holding this position. Won't let you go to cashier unless female.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like everyone in the front end is an idiot when most of them can ace your butt in any test. Most of us are smarter then you!

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

    Pros

    Customer interaction is enjoyable and you get a lot of that due to company policies. It is easy to be hired.

    Cons

    You won't get enough hours, the pay is low, there is no room for job growth, and you will have to watch customers being treated horribly by department managers and be able to do nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees more incentive to stay with the company and in the long run you will save money due to lower turnover.

    It's a paycheck, 10% discount on most Kroger brand items, union health insurance after 8 months if in union. Union is optional

    Crappy pay, hard to advance, crazy availability required

    Advice to Management

    Managers need more training, should all operate on same page & should uphold all company policies everyday & not pick & choose

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, Union, Medical and Dental Insurance, discounts on food, Automobiles, Car Rental, Amusement Parks, Cell Phones, etc...

    Cons

    Kroger doesn't honor your availability without a fight, management doesn't listen to your concerns, lazy employees get the best schedules and the most hours, the employees who will work are given all the work, while lazy employees are given the opportunity to stand and smile in front of the camera, management

    Advice to Management

    Don't call ME on MY day off when your lazy employees fail to show up for work!!!

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

    Pros

    I had experience, so pay was good.

    Cons

    Very hostile environment. They expected me to do way too much while the other workers did nothing. No proper training. Very unsanitary. Someone had to be the scapegoat if anything went wrong. Not even managers took responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Professionalism is a must or they will never be able to keep good workers. Make sure new employees are properly trained. Cleanliness is Godliness! If there is an issue, investigate!!

    There is an option to work in different departments.

    Cons

    Management.

    People will stand around and not help when help is needed. Managers stand around and will talk while on the clock.(stealing time)

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who will actually do their job. Management just stands around and talks & does not help when help is needed. They continue to talk.
