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

    Pros

    From management down is a push for friendly associates. I believe the company as a whole is positive and cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Kroger has a union which means you can't fire incompetent, lazy or negative people. If you're surrounded by these kind of people, you will eventually want to get out no matter how nice the overall organization is.

    Advice to Management

    Please allow hourly employees to provide feedback about their immediate supervisors. Get to know your hourly/store associates! Management will walk right past hourly employees to talk to other managers and never even know the names of those who work for them.
