    Underperformers Often Overlooked

    Advice to Management

    Teach employees who want to learn, and convince those whom don't to want to learn. Technical and practical skills tend to be limited to those whom are higher on the ladder rather than everywhere.

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

    Pros

    Start off (at my location at least), a dollar above minimum wage. This being my First Job, this sounded great! Friendly people, lots of work culture. Very laid back, flexible schedule, easy to get more or less hours, change availability, and get time off. President recognizes your work, you get surveyed by customers who want to leave a review and the president gives you a little award, a pin. Feels nice! Made a lot of friends here, glad this is my first job. I recommend to anyone looking for an easy way to ease into the working world. Also, they have a Union, which personally I'm not in but they're very cheap, you dont have to pay much of anything to be in, and they're effective. Good people have your back, even if you AREN'T in it. Part time workers will get paid time off after one year, insurance, healthcare, etc....

    Cons

    Legs hurt horribly by the end of your shift. You get these crappy comfort mats and by time you work just 4 hours your legs are shot. Ive tried getting better shoes and inserts to no avail.... Also, you'll have to work with people who NEED to be fired, but for whatever reason they keep them there despite several warnings. I got yelled at for calling in sick only twice over the past months because of bad illness, but theres these people being extremely rude constantly and messing around and they don't get even a look?

    Advice to Management

    We need to be able to walk around more and do other things here an there. It hurts too much to lock my legs for so long, even after doing stretches and moving weight around. We only have crappy little rugs

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

    Pros

    Started out everything was great

    Cons

    Didn't work around college management only thinks about the numbers not the customers

    Advice to Management

    Numbers from a computer isn't. Always right when you are in a small town. Listen to your employees more.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity across the nation to advance (if you're willing to move) Great network of employees at other facilities to lean on. Team based.

    Cons

    Very strong corporate presence that micro manages plant employees on day to day activities. Several dotted line bosses. Benefits cost more than like facilities. You have to be willing to move if you want to advance. Company is moving toward a Wal-Mart type of business model on how they treat employees (turn and burn). Employee turnover is at an all time high. Company is sacrificing employee loyalty by cutting benefits for short term gains to the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Keep corporate out of the tactical day to day problems. Let them be solved by experts who know how to do their jobs.
    Allow people to do their jobs, don't tell them how to do them and then get short with them when they did the job your way and it didn't work out.
