FRONT-END CLERK (Current Employee), Louisville, Ky – May 20, 2015
For the most part it is fast paced, meeting goals, keeping customers happy, getting them in and out quickly as possible. We want the customers time to be short but sweet I guess you could say. Management changes every few years, so by the time you really get a feel for them they get sent to another store. I love my co-workers, most of them I've worked with since day one. The hardest part of my job is letting a customer leave unhappy, I strive to please every one of my customers, so letting them down makes me feel like I failed them. The most enjoyable part of my job are my regular customers, the ones I know by name and genuinely care about as a people, in the last 7 years of employment with Kroger I've developed a your heartache is my heartache attachment for most of them.
Cashier, Supervisor, Meat Clerk (Former Employee), Roanoke, VA – May 7, 2015
Pros: Long breaks, advancement opportunities
I began working here when I was 16 and enjoyed my tenure at Kroger. I learned the meaning of a honest days work to earn my possessions. I walked away from Kroger with a better understanding of how life works and was able to better feed my work ethic.
Deli Service Clerk (Former Employee), Memphis, TN – May 6, 2015
This job IS NOT FOR ADULTS trying to get established after high school. Instead this job is for high school students. Making 7.35 an hour, I thought life was a joke. The amount of work you do in the deli is ridiculous. And to be making only that amount of money is ridiculous as well. Coworkers were very bossy and lazy. Management was ok. The only thing I can actually say I learned was how to tolerate any BS thrown my way.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Wixom, MI – May 6, 2015
Re-stocking and pricing produce food and cleaning the work area. I've learned how to give great customer service and complete tasks in a timely fashion. The management wasn't that very good, I didn't work with any of the supervisors that often and treated the employees poorly whenever I did
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Pontiac, MI – May 6, 2015
I learned responsibility from this particular work place because it was my first real job. The management was kind of rude and careless but a few did want to make sure everything was in order. The hardest part of this job was dealing with everyone's attitude.
Overnight Stocker (Current Employee), Memphis, TN – May 5, 2015
Cons: short staffed
A typical day consists of management trying to hurry and leave as soon as I clock in. I've learned that every single person has a unique personality. The hardest part of my job is being understaffed and feeling overworked.
Cashier (Current Employee), West Point, Ms – May 5, 2015
Pros: Customers, Insurance
I enjoy working at Kroger, The customers are great most of them come in daily. I received a certificate from the home office for having highly satisfied customers. I have learned how the public can be a refreshing part of your day and there are times you have to just grit your teeth and smile. As for the management it needs a little help when you go through managers every 6 weeks. It goes back to the old saying too many chiefs and not enough Indians. I got along with everyone there it's some great personalities in one building with the exception on one or two in management. The most enjoyable part of that job was the customers.
Retail Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Brandon, MS – May 5, 2015
Pros: good pay and good benefits
Cons: bad management behavior
Loved working for Kroger. I've learned so much from the associate's and the customer's of Kroger. Management needs some improving but otherwise fair. My co-worker's and I were like family and everyday was a different adventure. Hardest part of the job was making sure that customer satisfaction rating was scored at a 95 percentile. The most enjoyable part of the job was the positive interaction with the customers and seeing them return week after week.
