    Pros

    They will LITERALLY hire anyone. At our store we have employees who do not know how to read.

    Cons

    The pay is awful. $7.65 is the lowest pay for a grocery store. The training is terrible. I had one 4 hour shift to train before the new store opened. The managment is bad. They hire new cashiers instead of promoting hardworking employees, and the hardworking employees get screwed over because managment doen't promote based on work ethic, they promote based on favorites. I ( Currently a courtesy clerk) am the only bagger who knows what they are doing, and I have to do the work of three courtesy clerks because all the other employees do not do their job and will even walk off in the middle of bagging and leave me to do their work, and the worst part is the management doesn't do anything about it. I WOULD ABSOLUTLY NOT RECOMMEND WORKING AT A KROGER.

    Advice to Management

    Promote people based on their work ethic and not on favorites and please do not hire incompetent employees.

    I worked at Kroger (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small discount on Kroger products.

    Cons

    I was excited to go to work for the Kroger on Grand River Novi, MI this month, unfortunately it turned out to be a horror.  The first week I worked 34 hours, when I got my check it was for 26 hours, so I quit.  I still had one more check coming for the 24 hours I worked the 2nd week, that check ended up being for 16 hour, so they shorted me 8 hours again.  I guess they keep their prices low by cheating their employees.  Needless to say, I'll never step inside a Kroger again.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees for all the hours they work.

    Pros

    Very demanding of your time for the money. They want to own you.

    Cons

    They want to own your time. The union is a joke. No representation. They just want your money.

    Advice to Management

    Teach your dwepartment supervisors to treat people with respect. Not everyone is fresh out of school. Common decency goes a long way. Have not seen that at Kroger.

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

    Pros

    Full Time employees can earn great benefits
    2 paid 15min breaks per 7 hour shift
    Can have flexible hours
    Low standards for worker productivity
    Can help pay for college courses (very limited criteria)

    Cons

    Understaffed.
    They will lie about having "competitive pay" Everyone gets the same raises, not based on how many hours you work or skill level.
    They do not follow safety policies for unloading trucks.
    Meat department workers did not wash hands.

    Advice to Management

    Work with Unions to institute competitive pay!!! Management will often schedule more employees or whip the store into shape when corporate comes for inspections...then the store will quickly fall apart again. Have more surprise inspections.
