Store needs a change in management
Starbucks Barista (Current Employee), Jersey Village, TXFebruary 24, 2015
Currently understaffed and required to work under extreme pressure to meet expectations of upper management. Current working conditions are very stressful due to the unreliability of many new employees.

Grocery Store
Customer Relations/Salesclerk (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHFebruary 20, 2015
Pros: fun atmosphere, food
Cons: lack of communication and care
I worked the registers and would sometimes run a break for an employee or run the self-checkout lanes.
I leaned a lot about proper communication and how to run the systems so that if there was a problem with the computers or machines, I was able to fix them.
Management was a little disorganized. They did a poor job communicating what they needed from their employees which resulted in a lot of issues with schedules and tasks that needed to be completed.
The co-workers were great. We made work enjoyable.
The hardest part was dealing with management.
Most enjoyable part was being a step under management and having other employees and even managers coming to me for advice on how to run a job or for some advice.

A somewhat dreary company built upon a great culture
Deli Team Member (Former Employee), Midland, MIFebruary 14, 2015
Pros: fantastic history, somewhat local, wide selection of markets
Cons: lax customer care, little pay, no room for advancement
What was apparently once a great company with a rich history has fallen to rampant consumerism and trade offs for quality. While I am not an advocate for spilling company secrets; my time at Kroger was not a very pleasant one. What passed for health code work was lax and the management cared little about it. Profits were the main concern of many upper managers and while that is the main goal of their market it should not come at the cost of their clients well being.

Productive, great environment for a starting job
Cashier (Former Employee), Charlottesville, VAFebruary 11, 2015
Pros: your set schedule, room for advancement if you are willing to wait and are serious. many positions
Cons: some customers are hard to get along with.
Days at work are the same, same people, same items, same co-workers, most likely the same schedule too. Management is up-beat and great to get along with. co-workers are relaxed and are team oriented people.
the most enjoyable part of the job is managing u-scan cluster: self checkout.

Strong Company
Meat Department Managers (Current Employee), Farmington, MIFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: great company to learn the hardships of retail.
Cons: management does not appreciate the employees
Daily life at Kroger is always challenging. Always a new challenge and nothing is ever the same late deliveries, call offs and normal customer wants and needs.
Learned how to truly multitask and manage people without micromanaging. Store manager was not the best people person but learned a lot from him. Co-workers worked very well together and tried to make sure no one struggled to get the job done.
Hardest part of all is the constant additions to the job with no additional help or hours to get the job done. I truly enjoyed being with all the customers and making friends with them and my co-workers.

Easy work, but mostly part time
Meat Cutter (Former Employee), Danville, KYJanuary 28, 2015
Pros: easy to get a job
Cons: mostly part time with little chance of advancement.
Great place for a first job. At the time I was there, a great training program for meat cutters and some great people to teach you. mostly part time work with very little chance of advancement-union rules prevent any advancement on merits. Compensation is therefore very limited.

Logistics Tech
Perishable logistic tech (Former Employee), Aurora, CoJanuary 12, 2015
Pros: krogers fed us well
Cons: sometimes working on sunday
A typical day at work would be me making sure the orders placed the days before were on a truck and on the way to there destination, calling buyers when a store was in need of a certain product, calling the trucking company if the truck had not arrived at there destination on time and making sure information was put in the computer. I learned how to track a truck across the country and I really loved my job especially talking with the customers, buyers and truckers.
