Meeting new people was interesting.

Night Cashier (Current Employee)
Madison, TN (US)

I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 5 years

Prosflexible scheduling sometimes, personal days off, vacation pay, regular customers are great, especially the ones that just make your day/night by just asking how you are doing and being patient.

Conslack of communication, favoritism, low pay, irresponsible management, immaturity among other coworkers.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust listen to the employees' concerns and accomplishments. Appreciate them more and you will receive happier employees who will want to come into work, not because they have to.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Cool People, Annoying Schedule, Stocking When Store is Closed is Nice

Third Shift Stocker (Current Employee)

I have been working at Kroger part-time for less than a year

Pros- Good co-workers, currently
- My location is closed after midnight, meaning that we can stock without interruption
- Work hard, show up to shifts (on time), and you will earn respect

Cons- Pay: Not surprising - It's minimum wage w/ Union Dues. Though, you are compensated for 3rd shift.
- Schedule: If you work Saturday night, you may not officially know until that Saturday afternoon. Friday afternoon at the earliest.
- Inconsistency: As a part-timer, I'll work 35+ hours for a few weeks, and then, work 20 for a few weeks.
- Because of the pay and it being 3rd shift, it seems that we are always low-staffed with inconsistent hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy current night manager is pretty much how one should run things:
- Work hard
- Teach, don't micromanage
- Just be a good person

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
