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

    Pros

    The discounts are great, the coworkers are great, and some of the customers are great.

    Cons

    The pay is awful! We don't get paid near enough for our jobs as other companies pay. Everything now is about how many shots we can give, not about serving the customers.

    Advice to Management

    Let your workers help customers, not try to sell shots.

    I worked at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    Meet some nice and friendly customers.

    Cons

    4 hours work - 15 mins break. Non-stop work other than break. Always bagging and pushing carts non-stop. Some Clerks don't help you bag and it gets so annoying. Sometimes u push heavy carts in the snow for hours and they barely provide any tools for you to stand in extreme cold weather.

    Advice to Management

    Need more workers because 90% of the time, there're 5 lanes open and only 3 workers paying them $8.5 and making them work their butt off.
