An easy and relaxing experience
Cashier (Former Employee) – Augusta, GA – July 21, 2017
I was only with the Kroger Company for a few short months, but I mostly enjoyed my time there. The job was not too stressful, and apart from having to stand for long hours without being allowed, to sit, it was not so bad. The management was polite and willing to listen to your complaints and help you talk through and problems you may have had.
The hardest part of the job was the customers. Everyone who works in customer service knows that, sometimes, you just get customers that treat you like dirt. Not being able to stand up for yourself, especially when you were being chastised for some imagined error, could be taxing.
The best part of the job was, again, the customers. It was a humbling experience to meet so many people, most of them polite and patient. I even received Employee of the Month for July 2012 because I greeted an older lady with, "Good afternoon, young lady. Are you young enough to qualify for the senior citizens' discount?" She loved that, apparently
Nice co-workers, understanding managers
Standing for long hours, rude customers at times
