Productive, fun, and hardworking. The job itself is wonderful if you enjoy meeting new people.
Cashier/Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Tucker, GAJuly 7, 2014
Pros: i gained experience, met different people of all races and the neighborhood
Cons: short breaks
While working at Kroger, I've learned to better my communication skills, as well as learning all I could, from different departments. My job was challenging, working different departments was almost a struggle but I remained calmed and made sure no matter what I did I always made my customer feel more than comfortable to come to me for anything. The – more... job itself is so fun, the employees are hilarious. We always made time to make each other laugh, but, when it came to handling our customers, when we did it, we did it right. The only hard part about the job was working a lot of hours on an empty stomach. – less

enjoyed working and merchandising my stores, and pushing sales.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee), Tucson, AZJuly 3, 2014
Pros: it was a friendly place to work
Cons: very long hours due to salary position
I stayed with them for 26 years and for the most part was very pleased with how I was treated. I was one of the few that were offered jobs in Arizona. When Smith's Food and Drug left California in 1996. The only reason I retired and left Frys in Arizona was that my mother was dying and wanted to stay in her home in Utah. At that time I retired and took – more... care of her.
I enjoyed management that I worked with and learned a lot during all the years I worked for them. I got along well with my coworkers and we worked hard.. During the years in California I was involved with helping to set nine stores in four years. When Smiths left california I was able to help locate jobs for most of the employees in my store with other companies.
I have a great deal of satisfaction in completing the jobs that were assigned to me. – less

typical 1st job experience
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), dallasJuly 3, 2014
they work you to the bone for minimum wage. the people are nice enough, grumpy because we are all tired. what I learned was, if you work 40 hrs for certain time but then 30 they can keep from changing you to full time.. my manager was honestly insane, clinically.

The Kroger Co.
❸ Co-Manager (Current Employee), Decatur, ILJuly 3, 2014
This company has exceptional benefits. I love working for this company but unfortunately there just isn't the advancement opportunities I thought there would be. There are a lot of politics involved in advancing. They make it seem like anyone can do so but in reality they have picked who they want before the interviews ever occur.

Overall it's really nice to work fro Kroger
Floor Supervisor (Current Employee), Arlington, TXJuly 2, 2014
Pros: great work environment
Cons: some supervisors/ managers are not so nice
All of the other employees are great to work with and management is good. I'ts very busy at the store i current work at so it keeps me on my toes which is great, I love a fast paced environment. Some not so very happy customers come in but as long as you know how to deal with the situation in the correct manner it should be alright.

Kroger
Cashier/U-Scan Cashier (Current Employee), Clarksdale, MSJuly 2, 2014
Overall, Kroger is a great place to work from high school into your college life. On a typical day, you devote your time to make sure each customer has what she/ he needs with a smile. This is simply showing a "Customer 1st" attitude. The management does what it takes to work around your school schedule so that you can work and attend school without – more... any complications. – less

Fast pace work environment with plenty of flexibility within the workplace
Deli/Bakery Clerk (Former Employee), Urbana, OHJuly 2, 2014
Pros: two fifteen minute breaks, fairly early shift, vacations, and benefits
Cons: low pay that takes quite a while to build up, management involvement was minimal, communication throughout the store was lacking
There is no such thing as a typical day at the kroger company. Your shift is never a set schedule, which can be okay if you like a change of pace in your work environment, but it makes it very difficult to have a balanced lifestyle. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and most of us are still going to be lifelong friends when I leave the company because – more... we got to know each other so well in the time I have spent there. I am not going to praise management or bash on them because they were just trying to do their job in order to run the store as successfully as possible.The hardest part of my job would have to be the random shifts. I could go from working 5am-1pm to working 2:30pm-10:30pm. I was always tired or worn out because I never had a set sleep schedule. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be meeting the customers and forming such a relationship with them, that I refer to most by their first name. It was a joy meeting new people and developing such pride to be able to communicate with these people. – less
