More Pros and Cons

  1. "Courtesy Clerk"

    I worked at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    Kroger is a friendly work atmosphere. Management works well with your personal life and PTO days. Training is exceptional well also.

    Cons

    I would say the some managers take advantage of there power. Care more about what corporate thinks then they do about their employees they are managing.

    Advice to Management

    Would be to spend around responsibilities for everyone that is working instead of making the worker who works hardest have to do majority of the expected work to get done.

    Pros

    Busy environment and time goes by very quickly. Always something to keep you busy. Regular customers are very friendly.

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

    Pros

    Of course, employees get a discount and the occasional free fuel points, which are great perks. Like most retail jobs, the experience you'll have at kroger depends largely on your coworkers. I work in a great store and consider my coworkers family, which makes work fun. Also, there's room for advancement (albeit small promotions, but they're available).

    Cons

    The cons are your typical retail cons: unreliable schedule, dealing with customers, there's always some new BS program going on and new quota to meet.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    Some of the employees are lovely. The environment is nice and the customers are awesome.

    Cons

    Before Kroger, I've never worked anywhere that just walking in the doors sucks the life right out of you. Co-workers are sullen, passive aggressive and outright hostile to each other. Training beyond the training center, which has only about 20% relevancy to any one job position, is non existent. You train by screwing up and getting yelled at.

    Advice to Management

    Management is just as sullen and hostile as everyone else. Start practicing what you preach in terms of friendliness. Actually train your employees and get on the same page with all levels of management. If you ask a question of 5 different managers, you get 5 wildly different answers at my store.

    Make sure new hires get the training they need.

    Really look into how your supervisors treat their managers and employees.
