Productive workplace, cares for customers.
Cashier (Current Employee), Hermitage,TNJuly 23, 2014
Pros: vacations and personal days.
Cons: short breaks, no help.
A typical day at work would be for me to come into work and assist customers with great care and superior customer service. I learn different things from different customers everyday about everyday life. Things are always changing in the customer service desk so I'm always learning something new. There are a few co-workers who are awesome to work with – more... and some who are not so awesome. The hardest part of my job is trying to maintain great customer service when there is no help and customers are lining up and giving you attitude. The most enjoyable part of my job is making someone's day by just talking to them and making them feel good. Another enjoyable part of job is my awesome co-workers whom have become great friends and become like family. – less

Lead bookeeper
Accountant (Former Employee), Frisco TxJuly 22, 2014
I would come in at 5:00 am and start on the books by balancing the tills first. After tills were out I would move on to balance self check out. The store would open at 6:00 am. After the first cashier was at work I would move on to the lines and looking for shortages . After the books were closed I would come out and open customer service. Once the – more... customer service associate arrived I would move on to giving all of the front-end associates their breaks. On Sundays I came in at 4:00 am to do the payroll for the store. My responsibilities were to make sure all they associates were paid for the hours they worked and post their hours in kronos. – less

Fast moving and consistently changing environment
Manager (Former Employee), Columbus, Ohio / Flint, MichiganJuly 22, 2014
Pros: benefits, great training programs.
Cons: no work/life balance, terrible communication between supervisors and management.
- typical day at work consists of walking the store, overseeing employees and daily duties, making sure all displays/endcaps are to planogram, unloading daily deliveries, managing budget and overtime, writing and approving all schedules for multiple departments, stocking shelves if necessary.
- Learned how to write schedules, write practical budgets, – more... coach and train employees, merchandise products and displays, manage time and work on several projects at once.
- as a part of management, my peers and I operated as a team with decent communication, while our supervisors did not communicate as well due to overseeing more than 20 stores.
- the hardest part of being a manager for the Kroger company was the lack of home and work life balance.
- The most enjoyable part of being a manager is being able to help your employees grow, not only as an employee but also a person, helping them learn and be promoted. – less

Fun and yet boring
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Sunbury, OHJuly 21, 2014
Pros: some down time
Cons: low pay
Had a great experience working here just not enough hours and not a consistent schedule. Management was well. Co workers were hard working and good. The hardest part of the job was staying busy during slow periods.

Kroger was overall a good experience.
Courtesy clerk/cashier (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAJuly 21, 2014
The only thing I didn't like about Kroger was that we switched management team every 3 months. Every time we would get comfortable with a manager they would leave. My co-workers were the same way.

productive day at Kroger
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 21, 2014
Pros: cheap insurance
Cons: rude managers
I enjoyed the people and co workers there but management treats you so bad as if they are too busy for the employees and the customers. I don't feel like employees should handle angry and upset customers, I feel like managers should take care of the customers that are upset.

Kroger
Store Clerk (Former Employee), Nashville, TNJuly 18, 2014
Pros: customers
Cons: lack of leadership
A typical day at work was arguments between co-workers and management, dirty stations, fights and management thief. I have not learned anything, but how to not run a business. Management was not the best, not enough leadership. My co-workers were well aware of the lack of leadership. I got along with all my co-workers even management. The hardest part – more... of the job was nothing, it wasn't a challenge. the most enjoyable part about it was interacting with the customers. – less
