Running the front end of the store, and stepping in when Manager/Asst. Manager were not on-site
SERVICE MANAGER (Former Employee), Evergreen, CO – April 24, 2013
Pros: great company that had great benefits
Cons: management position was keeping me from a great life
I gave all that I could for this company. When I was going to be require to only have Tues/Wed or Wed/Thurs off, it was a hard decision to walk away. I had moved over 1,100 miles from home to spend time with family and the new hours were going to keep me from them.
Good work place if you are lookin to grow with a company.
Produce Clerk (Current Employee), Thornton, CO – April 17, 2013
Pros: health and dental insurance. works with school schedules.
Cons: you work for less money then you deserve to be paid. you only get paid two holidays a year.
Customer service. Working with the public. A typical day at work is different for everyone depending on which department you work in. You become part of the kroger team. Hardest part of the job I would have to say is being patient with impatient customers or grumpy ones.
Courtesy Clerk, King Soopers (Former Employee), Holly and county line – April 8, 2013
There is always something to do,and never a dull moment. We will have someone complain, but otherwise we get better in customer service. We want to be able to serve everyone with dignity, respect, and loyalty.
All Purpose Clerk (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, CO – April 7, 2013
Pros: benefits and job stability.
Cons: having such an un-set schedule.
Most the time the work was pretty easy to do as I got more comphortable with it. Often the scheduling was hard to keep up with as the days and overnights got all mixed together. I learned a lot about how the grocery-retail business operates and that to me was beneficial to life. Management was alright, though not the best. Realizing though that there – more... are many employees, it all made sense in the end. – less

A/R accounting for 65 strores in pharmancy accounting systems Kings Soopers was a great company with great managers. The onl problem was getting ahead with out a college degree. Workng with grerat people and getting paid overtime after4 hours
Front End Coordinator (Former Employee), Colorado Springs – April 3, 2013
Pros: employees and customers.
Cons: upper management and their goofy employee engagement talk.....
King Soopers has grocery nailed and the operation is impressive. Most employees are NOT happy and look for other opportunities if they can. Face it - wages are the same level today as they were when gas was 75 cents a gallon - We pay them $7.75 up to $20 an hour and keep them part time to cut benefits. WORKING POOR IN AMERICA SO WHO COULD BE PROUD OF – more... THAT?
Store and District Management are mostly old school and long time friends. If you are not in the Club, you are going nowhere with this group. Very political environment which does not allow room for respectful debate.
Record profits at Kroger while employees are eligible for government assistance. Sad. – less
Courtesy Clerk and Cashier (Former Employee), Lafayette, CO – April 2, 2013
Pros: paid vacations, raises
Cons: not much free time
I think this place is a great place to work, but I think they could do a lot of improvement on the schedules. They are different every day and you never know for sure if you are supposed to be at work or not. And you don't get much free time. Other than that this is a fine store to work at.
Produce Department Manager (Current Employee), Lakewood, CO – April 2, 2013
Pros: great benefits
Cons: weekend work, big corporation
Solid, stable company, great benefits for hourly employees at least Room for advancement Management is approachable By and large the people that work here are the best part Many options available if done right
Barista (Former Employee), Colorado – April 1, 2013
King Soopers is a good place to work. The pay is very average for the industry and type of work performed, but the benefits are definitely above average. I learned a lot of time management and task prioritizing skills working here, as most work is performed without direct supervision. The best part of the job was forming relationships with customers – more... and making their day better by doing simple things like remembering their names or their "usual" drink as a Starbucks Barista. – less
