    Pros

    You learn about more than one area. In the HOM Dept you work together.

    Cons

    When you loose an employee or one transfer. Your staff is low. When your lunch is over an hour late is a bad night....

    Advice to Management

    Do not assume what ppl say as their skill level. Do not give new employees more hours than your employees who come in whenever you call, even on days off.

    Pros

    You get to help people and learn a lot. There is always room for advancement. I enjoyed the atmosphere and people I worked with.

    Cons

    HR was very poor. They did not take my harassment claims against another (senior) coworker seriously because she was best friends with the manager. She did get fired many years after I left. Karma!

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Have been with the company for 7 years... I am surrounded by other who have been there for 15, 30, 40+ years. It's incredible.

    Cons

    It's retail. It's hard to work retail hours, holidays, and summers. If you are not relocatable your career path could be narrow. Being an ASM can be difficult as you are moved around alot.

    Advice to Management

    Quality of life is talked about often but it is not appreciated and employee time off is not honored they way it should be. One can be made to work while or or made to feel guilt for being off.

    Pros

    My fellow co-workers and upper management were nice and willing to help me when I needed it.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to be considered for a full-time position. This is also not a job for those who get stress/anxiety easily.

    I feel that my Management team has started leading the company in a less than ideal direction for many people.

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful staff. They are willing to work with your schedule, respect and disabilities or physical limits you may have and will work around them.

    Cons

    Very busy, and finicky management as per my experience. And in my experience as a bagger who also had to retrieve carts from the parking lot. We needed a water cooler especially during the summer and brought it to management's attention. However, it was not addressed until 4 months after bringing it to their attention, and we reminded them on a constant basis.

    Advice to Management

    Give more time to listen to your employees.

    Pros

    Kroger is a good place to work if you have a open work schedule. It has plenty of job growth possibility.

    Cons

    Yearly raise is bearly anything.
    Scheduled can be random.
    Hard work life.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the individual then the goal of the department, store, ect. If your employees want to leave your not going to have the workers to meet your goals.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities and awesome coworkers. Discounts off Kroger brand and other private brands. Can participate in union benefits also.

    Cons

    Super fast paced due to supply and demand, they expect a lot of their employees cause of this. Workers should be paid higher wages for the work they have to do.

    Advice to Management

    Thoroughly train new employees

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

    Pros

    Plenty of hours at the location if you needed it
    Slight employee discount
    Decent employee benefits, even for part time

    Cons

    Hours are unpredictable, which is to be expected for a part time position
    Sometimes seems like they'll hire anyone
    If you show that you're reliable and a good worker, they'll work you as much as they can (which can be both good and bad)
