    I worked at Kroger part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Union, regular pay raises, small employee discount, some paid time off, straight-forward job.

    Cons

    Lazy entitled co-workers, some employees discourage you from working hard cause they do just enough to not get fired and union protects them. Doesn't matter if you do twice as much work as the old guys, if you're new you're going to be making far less for a long time and get laughed at. Maybe should try to negotiate for raises early on if you're an outstanding performer. Ego-tripping managers.

    Advice to Management

    Be accountable for motivating the old-timers and keeping morale high.
