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
