Productive and cold.
Salad Bar Clerk (Former Employee), Cincinnati OhioJuly 25, 2015
Cons: Short breaks, cold, stood for long hours at a time in the cold.
Would stand in a freezer for about 8 or 9 hours with two 15 minute breaks. Not a fun place to work. People in management were friendly at first. But then weren't friendly when I started working there.

Could've been better
Courtesy Clerk (Current Employee), Grosse Pointe Woods, MIJuly 23, 2015
Pros: easy way to find a snack, grocery shop
Cons: health benefits, management
the wasn't hard it was just a little bit unorganized. Not all managers are bad just one. Sometimes it was all fake to impress and I'm not a fake person so I really don't do well with fake people. I think the company needs some improvement.

It is a great place to work, I loved the customer interaction, the benefits, and the people. A typical day at work would be: full of energy, excitement, and the customer always comes first.

The co-workers are awesome. They are just full of joy and compassion and it makes the day that much better. The hardest part of the job is there really is not a hard part. The most enjoyable part of the job is the customer interaction. – less

Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Henrico, VAJuly 23, 2015
Pros: awesome lounge and break room for the associates
Cons: retail is retail its too demanding for a single mother
I love this company everyone knows each other we interact on a day to day basis. There is always some fun event going on and meetings that keeps you in the loop on whats new with the company. My favorite aspect about Kroger is the understanding of management if there is a need, they come together and help each other out. The hardest part is knowing that every good thing has to come to an end.

GREAT WORK EXPERIENCE
MEAT CLERK (Former Employee), Keller, TXJuly 23, 2015
Pros: GREAT BENEFITS, UNION, DISCOUNTS, FLEXIBLE HOURS
I HAVE THOUGHT KROGER WAS AN EXCELLENT WORK EXPERIENCE. IF YOU WERE WILLING TO PUT IN THE TIME AND LEARN THEY WERE MORE THAN WILLING TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR HOURS TO THE BEST OF THE ABILITY THAT THEY COULD. – more... THE DISCOUNT WAS ALSO NICE FOR BUYING PERSONAL GROCERIES AS WELL AS SAVING ON GAS MONEY. THE NEGATIVES WERE NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO NOT RECOMMEND THE COMPANY TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING TO GET THEIR FOOT IN THE DOOR IN THE RETAIL INDUSTRY – less

A typical day was running the accounting room and supervising the front end cashiers. I worked customer service and pricing department. I learned so much about customer care and how to tend to others needs. – more... Management was great and I became a department manager in the pricing department. All co workers worked really hard to satisfy every customers needs no matter what department you worked in. The hardest part of my job was when my body just couldn't handle it anymore.
