Not a perfect job for teenage workers
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – June 19, 2017
It really seems like Kroger would be an ideal place to work part time as a student but it does you a major disservice. Kroger's way of reimbursing their workers hinges heavily on the substantial benefits package you gain once you reach full time employment for a long enough period of time, but if you do not work full time then you will be paid significantly less than you could at other grocery stores.
However, the work is very steady and rarely gets overwhelming, you always have something to do. The in store management was always friendly and willing to talk to you about whatever you might need or want to bring up, and fellow employees were relatively friendly and helpful.
Another complaint I could make is how advancement seems less about experience and time spent and more about saying yes, and how long it takes just to get a raise while working there, but I would overall say it's a decent place to work, just that how they structure it is kind of a trap for teenagers looking to work part time.
Benefits package, Decent and rewarding work flow
Low wages, Slow advancement
