NEVER WORK THERE
Housekeeping (Former Employee), Elizabethtown, KYAugust 26, 2015
Pros: Nothing
Cons: short breaks and management
i worked at Kroger in Elizabethtown KY. It was a joke. They literally bounce you from position to position and shift to shift and they don't give you any help to learn what to do! The management is the worst over EVER seen! They had a 60 yr old women pushing carts in the parking lot in the snow... Like really? It's awful!!!

wonderful place to start my work expience
Front End Cashier (Former Employee), Russellville, ARAugust 24, 2015
Pros: Working with the public
Cons: Inconsistent amount of hours
This was my first technical real job. I loved it. I was able to advance throughout the company in my near 4 years there. They play it safe and by the book as far as safety goes. People are close knit for the most part. No complaints about the job.

Great for a first job.
Cashier (Former Employee), Spring, TXAugust 24, 2015
Pros: atmosphere, experience w/ customers acquired
Cons: Pay rate
Kroger is a great place to work, especially if you're looking to acquire your first job! It was mine! I enjoyed working with the younger employees and getting to know the new ones. Awesome managers that work with your schedule. The only problem I had and still have, is that its very hard to advance as far as pay. I worked there for over 2 years and when I resigned I hadn't even reached $8/hr! This may not be a big deal to some, but you just cannot make a living as a college student making $7.65/hr. I feel that Kroger could make their employees feel a little more appreciated and increase their willingness to work, if they paid better. If that was the case I'd still be there, because that grocery store has a great atmosphere.

OK work environment with people who don't care
Deli Clerk (Current Employee), Perrysburg, OhioAugust 24, 2015
I would normally clock in about 5 minutes before the scheduled time so that I can get started I the department right away. I work an eight hour shift with a required half hour break. There is a lot of stuff that I learn throughout the day, but the main thing is better customer service. The managers try their best, but when it comes to their employees they tend to not do what's best for them. For example, I am one of the closing people in the deli and there is one other person. We are far behind and won't be out on time and we have to ask a manager for overtime. We ask and they don't answer and they walk over to the deli later that night to see where we are at and they say "you'll get out on time, you don't need overtime." Even though we are 3 hours behind schedule. This is all because our department head only scheduled 5 people to work on a Sunday, the busiest day of the week. And my co-worker had to leave at a certain time so that she can get to her babysitting job. So I was left by myself. That I would have to say is also the hardest part of the job closing the deli by myself with no help. But the best part is that I got paid time and a half for the overtime.

a fun group of people
Store Clerk (Former Employee), Burlington, KYAugust 22, 2015
When i worked there many years ago it was a nice place to work because f the team i worked with, there wasn't a lot of promotional opportunities and upper management never really talk to us. communication is the key to success and unfortunately there wasn't a lot of that.. im glad for the experience i had and when i left i was paid pretty well. i worked 3rd shift so there as a lot of overtime then so it was hard to spend time with our families. my most enjoyable is the costumers that would come in. they became our regulars and it was nice talking to them and them always saying how they appreciate all our hard work. it was nice to hear.

Fast-Paced Environment with Many Coworkers
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Atlanta, GaAugust 21, 2015
In a typical day, you could serve 200 customers with varying personalities. Adjustment and leaving a positive impact with each individual is the rewarding aspect of the job.

Bagger/Stock Person (Former Employee), Cincinnati, OHAugust 21, 2015
A typical day at work was just slow and very long. I learned to better my communication skills and develop good relationships with employers.
Nothing really to say about managers but they were business professional and that is really what i'm looking for in a job. I never really dealt with co-workers unless it was a team job but overall everything was decent.

The company was okay. Some of the supervisors are on a high horse and the management does nothing about them treating the rest of the team like people,

fun workplace to meet new friends and customers
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Washington, MIAugust 20, 2015
Pros: day shifts
Cons: short breaks and short lunches
Fun work place and somewhat supportive management. I learned something new everyday and when made mistakes they were fixed. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new and old customers and seeing their smiling faces walk through the grocery store. The exciting thing was the update of the remodel of the store 2 years before leaving the store of finding a better job positions.
