    Pros

    One pro is a store onsite you can buy snacks at cost. No dress code that allows you to roll out of bed and go to work.

    Cons

    The company has no direction or goals. It starts with the people in leadership roles lacking experience and trickles throughout the company. This has lead to a horrible environment where people either don't care and put in minimal effort or step all over each other to try to get noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Kroger should clean house and put leaders with real online experience in place. This should start at the director level and up.

    Pros

    they offer good benifits including 401k w/match about 4 differtent schedules plenty of o/t PTO

    Cons

    no real down side for me as long as you follow the rules and procedures and good attitude your fine.

    Advice to Management

    be sincere to employees when you say you want to help then take time to listen and work with them since they give thier time to be there just like the managers do respect the associates so the associates can respect the managers and supervisors...no one is superior everyone is expendable, regardless of your title.
