Personally had a good experience there, Good routine work
Cashier (Former Employee), Grayson, GAMay 26, 2015
I worked as a cashier for Kroger for about a year, dabbling a little in the floral and produce department. Typically my shifts were in the mornings, from 7am-3pm or later, depending on how busy it can get. I got there at the crack of morning and spent the first couple hours organizing go-back items until customers started coming in.Then I would spend the rest of my shift ringing up groceries all day, with a half hour break in between. Starting off was really the hardest part of the job, but once that had passed, it was not a very hard job at all. However, customers can be a handful too, depending on the location you worked at. The best part of working there, personally, was making new friends, getting comfortable enough with the management where I could help make some decisions and venture out into different departments, and being able to have a set, routine work day everyday.

Productive and exciting workplace
Cashier (Former Employee), Norcross, GAMay 25, 2015
Kroger is a great company that is on its way to becoming one of the top leading grocery businesses in the United States.
While working at Kroger I learned to meet customer satisfaction in a respectful and timely manner. Management is always supportive, encouraging and gives feedback on your performance. The most enjoyable part is learning new lessons on a daily basis and being able to take these lesson with you and apply them in other jobs.

Working for Kroger has taught me a lot about the retail grocery business.
Recruiter (Current Employee), Blue Ash, OHMay 25, 2015
Working for Kroger has been both challenging and rewarding. A typical day at work would be to first open your email and address any issues that may have happened the night before. You will prioritize your day based upon the information received in your emails along with your calendar for the day. The hardest part of the job was having to put projects together with some of your team members being remote. Since Kroger is so big, it may sometimes be necessary to communicate with team members that may not be in the same city or state as you. That can also be challenging but enjoyable as well. You just have to be sure to communicate candidly and transparently.

Producitve place to work , and a fun good oriented place of work
Store Representative (Current Employee), Fort Wayne, INMay 25, 2015
Pros: They work around your scheldule
Cons: The pay could be more
A typical day at work would be me assisting customers throughout the whole day.What I've learned throughout the seven months I've been there is Good customer service skills, also learning more about the general population. My co-workers are hard working people with a good attitude each day they come to work, but some can be a little lazy. The hardest part of my job would be to push carts, but I get through it each, and every day I work. The most enjoyable part of my day is to see a customer happy, and to see a good conversation upon my co-workers, because the day goes by fast.

Productive and friendly work environment
Store Associate (Current Employee), Red Hill, PAMay 25, 2015
My typical day at work is normally easy, but stressful, which is the hardest part of my job. There are a lot of demands put on you and a very little amount of time to complete tasks in order to keep everyone happy. I've learned a lot of patience and how to keep my cool in tough situations by working for Kroger. The management is normally pretty understanding, but in my year of being with the company there has been 6 different managers. My co-workers are some of my best friends and it's fun to work with people I enjoy, that's probably the most enjoyable part of working for Turkey Hill.

I love working here, but if you want to make a living, this isn't the job for you. This is great for high schoolers, or people that just need some extra spending money.

Customer service representative (Current Employee), Southlake, TexasMay 22, 2015
Pros: nice people
Cons: not enough pay for the stuff you deal with
Typical work day for me is stressful because of management not caring for us or our customers. Because of the area, some customers are rude but managable. Co-workers were nice but there was always some kind of drama with someone. Rumors were spread quickly about anyone and everyone.

My special assignment from my previous job
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), College Park, GA 30349May 22, 2015
I was a curtesy clek at the company and in general we come in every clock in first; during our shifts we bag groceris, put carts into the store, sweep the floor and cleaning the bathroom if needed, and put back the iteams that wasn't pruchased if the customer did not want it; then we clock out. But for me, since was good at putting iteams back that wasn't purchased, that was my job when store closed for being 24 hours; so that was my special assignment working overnight, 5 days a week for 8 hours.

Learning expericence
Cashier (Former Employee), Douglasville, GAMay 21, 2015
Pros: weekly pay
Cons: amount paid and hours worked
The most enjoyable part of the job was the customers. They always taught me someting new or gave me words or wisdom. Whenever I would seem to work there was always short staff and everyone had to work twice as hard to pick up the slack. There was no advancement for me despite the fact that I was there for almost a year and recieved awards for my performance, I was not able to learn about new areas of the store and gain new skills. My co-workers were all very friendly and down to earth people. Everyone got along and we made a really good team.
