    I have been working at Kroger part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with a team
    Seeing the faces of happy customers

    Cons

    Grumpy customers
    Management (administrative level and not pharmacy level) does not always listen to technician requests

    Advice to Management

    Act on your implementations. If you can do it, for a year then it'll be reasonable. Know what it is to feel like the bottom level employee. Increase hour allotments for pharmacy. We're constantly feeling the need to hire more help but the truth is that we need more hours to work with

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great for part-time not a career job, flexible hours, co-workers can be awesome, regular customers can be great. If you don't have college aspirations becoming a department isn't a bad job. Union Shop

    Cons

    Limited ability to grow with company unless you go into management.
    Mgmt changes often and you never know what your going to get.

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, be honest and true to your word, DO NOT LIE, understand that all things have ebb and flow and sometimes you need to learn to just roll with it.

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

    Pros

    Get place to work... My managers are the best, some have a big mouth. Well just one. Anyway I'm a transfer and I have to say that this store has NO TEAMWORK ETHICS AT ALL.... TALK ABOUT NO I IN TEAM. VERY SAD TO SEE THIS. They say the employees are rude and co managers the same. I see it it just sucks that our customers see it as well.... I guess you can say this is my Pros and Cons in one. Sorry

    Cons

    Mixed feelings about this place....

    Advice to Management

    Goal is Loss Prevention.... Would be fabulous if I could get grocery manager
    , but like all I have to work my way up and I will prove that I am good for the company and the position....

    Pros

    GREAT training if you are a brand new kiosk in a Kroger store. Still pretty good on-the-job training if you're starting out.

    Cons

    Since you work for Kroger and technically not Starbucks, you don't get all the Partner benefits. District Managers tend to be too hard on kiosk managers

    Need to take care of employees who have earned it
