    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    At the retail level, most of the employees worked very hard and gave the impression that they wanted to be there (even if that wasn't the case.) Plus our store was very busy, so I pulled 30 hours a week. (As a teenager in high school!)

    Cons

    Kroger is notorious for not caring about their employees. I'd frequently see older people sick and still forced to come to work. It's a humbling job though, and seeing this made me want to work harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more care towards your veterans, especially those who've been there 10 or 20+ years.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are available, even for part time employees. You only have to work 16 hours a week to qualify

    Cons

    You have to have an open availability to get scheduled because the schedule is computer generated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the same process

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule to a degree. Some nice people and customers to work with, that helps getting through the day. Cough.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations. No overtime allowed, when you do work overtime you are made to leave early the next day, ELMS is broken also the eschedule system. Lack of hours and good help and constantly being told that no is applying for jobs! So what does that tell you! The company needs a major overhaul as at present, it is in a state of denial and false sense of security.

    Pros

    Good job for people who are in college. And weekly pay

    Cons

    If your a sacker you get carts a lot. It isn't that bad if you have hard working co-workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to understand your employees
