    Pros

    Flexibility is scheduling and the different people you meet. Discounts from computers all the way to cars once becoming an employee.

    Cons

    The amount of training videos you have to go through and slow periods depending on area that you live in. Plus you might have to deal with an unruly customer or two.

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

    Pros

    You gain a lot of valuable experience in merchandising , human resources, and operations; which in turn makes you a more marketable candidate for any future endeavors.

    Cons

    No type of work/life balance, will change your already crazy schedule with little to no notice. They are always chancing the next thing and adding more responsibilities to management and department leadership without perfecting what's already on the agenda.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop bombarding store and department leadership with a million and one smalls tasks. start asking yourself is this something you would like to do everyday before making the decisions to have others doing it, like working hectic schedules (1-11pm shift and then having to come back in the next day at 7am).

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

    Pros

    Right now I cannot think of one. If you are a schmoozer or if you are a person who doesnt care who you run over, you will go far.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations with insufficient resources to attain them. Promotion is about who you know and not the quality of your work. Coordinators rarely in the stores, yet they do not hesitate to criticize you if you don't meet your metrics.

    Advice to Management

    Your values as taught in Leadership Essentials are NOT what is practiced by your leadership. What is the turnover of your LE management graduates? If people quit managers not jobs, shouldn't that tell you something?
