    I worked at Vitacost full-time

    Pros

    They offer health insurance and a safe place to work.

    Cons

    Vitacost used to be a fantastic company, but sadly it declined over the years. It starts at the top with a executive management team that plays favorites and truthfully hardly works, stealing time is still stealing. The example being set is one that shows lack of care and concern, and HUGE ego's. The once caring family feeling is long gone. Benefits were reduced so that the execs can make huge salaries and bonuses. While the rest of the employees struggle to make ends meet.
    Kroger has failed to address these issues and as a result the place is a free for all.

    Advice to Management

    You need a complete restructuring of upper management. Address those whose ego's barely fit in the door. Human Resources is a joke. They are here for the company and NOT the employees.

    Pros

    Get to work on a computer and talk to people all over the world. decent hours for the most part. Holiday pay and benefits

    Cons

    You get stepped over for jobs that you've been helping with for years to someone else. Never appreciated

    Advice to Management

    make your team feel welcome and loved not like slaves

    Pros

    Benefits are okay. I got along with everyone fine. Hope Kroger will do some much needed improvements!

    Cons

    Hours of operation need some improvement. To much favoritism going on. They need to train more people in different areas instead of getting the same people over and over again to work those areas. People that refuse to do this should be written up instead of doing nothing but just going to the next person. I know some people are not able to do certain jobs but they do have folks that are very capable of doing other jobs and just do not get asked and left in pack to make the incentive money that is only earned in the pack area. I also do not think it is fair for the same people to make all the extra money. No other areas receive this extra incentive pay either.

    Advice to Management

    Train more people in different areas. Talk to your employees on a daily basis instead of just passing by and not even saying good morning! COMMUNICATE! Should be a great place to work and everyone getting along and doing what is needed for production!

    Pros

    It's a great place for starting a career if you have no previous office experience. Gets you hands on all aspects of the business.

    Cons

    They play favorites and when do not hold their employees accountable for meeting deadlines. If you already have an established career, this is probably not the best fit for you. Limited ability for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    Hold employees accountable for the things you ask them to do.
