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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed meeting the customers and providing samples of the deli food and then suggesting an item that would also go with the sample. The jewelry department was great too. Showing and demonstrating the jewelry. A lot of customer relations in both departments.

    Cons

    Not being allowed to sit down.

    This company works for the customer at every turn.

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    I like how we are in a safe, nice environment. I always feel safe and i have made some wonderful friends.

    Cons

    A couple fellow employees are rude. I also think pay could be raised based off how many hours you work not how many months you have worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to say that you are doing a very good job. I feel trained, safe, and happy in my work environment.

    Current Employee - Front End Cashier in Dallas, TX (US)
    Current Employee - Front End Cashier in Dallas, TX (US)

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    Includes a lot of benefits, health insurance (PPO), prescription drug coverage (PPO), dental/vision(HMO), 401k (2% match and scales to 10% by seniority), stock options, and discounts for electronics (apple, dell, lenovo, microsoft, rosetta stone), cell service (AT&T, Verizon, T-Moble, Sprint, I-Wireless [Kroger wireless] ), and a bunch more. it also adds others constantly. you can get this all as a part time worker (30hrs a week, which usually takes about a year to get).

    Cons

    it pays minimum wage. it has raises for everyone based on job step, which is a system in which the wages raise on increasingly greater amounts of money, but also time until the next raise. the raises are small and it takes roughly 5 years to top $12 an hour.

    Management vs employees

    Former Employee - Floor Supervisor in Nashville, TN (US)
    Former Employee - Floor Supervisor in Nashville, TN (US)

    I worked at Kroger full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    This store was in a relatively high end area of Nashville, TN, and catered to an upscale populous. The management tried to work closely with their customer base as well as employees. Incentives were offered on a continual basis to inspire trust and a good working environment.

    Cons

    The greatest challenge at this job was the entire disregard of the store employees for management. Most of the store employees had been in position for many years and refused to embrace any kind of change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be to transfer out as many of the old guard as possible, and establish trust and rapport with the remaining employees.
