An ok job to have while in college or high school

Cashier/Bagger (Former Employee)
Elizabethtown, KY (US)

I worked at Kroger part-time for more than 3 years

ProsFlexible hours, great co-wokers, union benefits, raise every 6 months, job is protected by the union, so it's fairly difficult to get fired.

ConsPoor management, crazy work hours, working holidays, union conflicts between managers and employees. There's a lot of favoritism toward certain employees, especially the ones who were relatives or friends of the managers. Due to the union it's almost impossible to get fired, so if they no longer wanted you, they will just cut your hours down to one 4 hour day a week until you just quit. Another downfall to the union was that a lot of employees were extremely lazy as a result because they knew they wouldn't lose their job for doing absolutely nothing, so that would mean the good workers would have to work twice as hard.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the favoritism and start rewarding the employees who really deserve it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Kroger is a good first time job

Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I worked at Kroger part-time for less than a year


Pros: I enjoyed the hours I was given, I enjoyed the people I got to meet, and that includes coworkers… Cons: Pay, promises not followed through when I was "promoted", felt there were too many politics involved with trying to move up in the company, and… Advice to Senior Management: Be more empathetic to situations, be more understanding and more leadership like in critism than having a "boss" air. You're no better… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
