    I have been working at Vitacost full-time

    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.
