    I worked at Kroger full-time

    Pros

    Fast-paced, never bored
    Good training program
    Great co-workers

    Cons

    Work life balance not always a priority
    District Management not always on same page
    If you are placed in a good results store, you are Golden. If placed in struggling one, or your Manager isn't part of the good boys club, you will not feel valued.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Manager vs. Them mentality. I have seen many great leaders leave, myself included, because of no recognition or a simple thank you. It is hard to work in an environment where you feel you can be terminated at any minute even when being open, honest, and hard working.
