What people are saying about Kroger




Senior Associate

Been living in the states for just over a year now and I am absolutely head over heels in love with Trader Joe's. I have tried a fair few super market chains - from Publix to HEB to Kroger to Costco - and TJs tops them all in my mind. How's it that a store much smaller than most others still mamange to get so much of my money? They always seem to have something new and unique for me. Their selection is just spot on. TJs could be so much better if they did deliveries and expanded into UK/DE/EU.

      The benefits and pay are good when you become established. A lot of really great people


      Work life balance is non existent and the company just keeps asking for more with less and less resources

        They are hiring in a poor economy.


        Kroger corporate is attempting to make the change to 'green leadership' but are failing to make the necessary changes within the stores. Within the stores, everything is still under the good old boy system. If you are new to the organization, I think you will be disappointed. Senior management ignores you at best, pins all the negatives on you at worst. The few store managers I have worked for have been indoctrinated into the old way of things where, as long as you make a profit, other things will be overlooked- including time card fraud, OSHA and Health Code violations and nepotism to the point of union grievances over the unequal disciplinary action of policy infractions. Add to that the poor work life balance and you have a wonderful chance at being happy!

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I finished third round of interviews but realized there’s an experience that isn’t on my resume (since it’s not directly related to the jobs I’m applying for) nor did I mention it in the interview process, but it would actually be great for me to leverage and demonstrates a relevant skill for the role. Is it worth emailing and dropping a quick note about it, or should I leave it?

      I have a supply chain & inventory manager interview coming up for a museum. Can anyone provide me some insight on what questions I should be prepared for? What key points to highlight during my interview? Any tips and advice is appreciated!



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.
