    I worked at Kroger part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Met alot of great people, Co-workers and customers! There is always room for advancement for a hard worker.

    Cons

    Extremely difficult to become full-time. Management changes like the wind. Corporate sucks with all their big business ideas, especially for a small store. They chop away at moral constantly.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees. The stores couldn't run without part-timers, stop running the good ones off! Work on moral for your employees.

    Two Baker wrappers to teach skills and two decorators to learn from

    Much of my time was learning political politics between floor managers as each style differences effectively worked for their personality. Worked may to August learning to most I could from each I left on good terms with a great deal of skills to carry me up the management ladder

    Advice to Management

    Take it easy as everyone learns at a pace. Each day comes with challenges from our customers. Many people are in a bakery on high expectations and support is appreciateted by all Customers are accustome to the kroger way and expects to have everything as they always have had last year and past years. Excellent management support is always appreciated. Thank goodness for probation I learned at a record high for myself at a time on great store changes and division inspections. Thank you for writing up the store asa whole it was a life experience I shall carry with me
