Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Kroger full-time

Pros

They offer a great pay and alot of time off. I would recommend this job to all of my frinds espcially if you are in school!

Cons

You are always busy, never stop. They expect alot! Sometimes they wouldn't even give me time off if a i hade a midterme or exam! what the hell is that all about.

Advice to Management

i would advise you to treat you staff better or at least leanr the name of your staff... DALE.
