Great learning experience
Frond End Asst. Manager/Customer Service/Cashier (Current Employee), Canton, GAJune 28, 2014
Pros: benefits, work/life balance, people
Cons: salary, management
Helping customers at guest care with various tasks (Money orders, Western Union, returns, lottery), and occasionally helping customers checkout quickly. Balancing money in store office and checking on losses and gains. Learned a lot of patience dealing with all types of problems and people. The management has some questionable people. They like to think – more... they know everything, but do not. Communication between them and everyone else is very poor. And once they do it's very late. Hardest part of the job was balancing all my responsibilities in a timely manner. They ask you to do so much yet my store was so busy I spent a majority of my time on register. The most enjoyable was helping customers and making them the satisfied customer we rely on. – less

The Kroger company is a good place to work if you want to gain customer service skills.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Knoxville, TNJune 26, 2014
Pros: friendly co-workers, fair managers, positive work place
Cons: short breaks, low pay, cutting back on hours
Kroger is a good place to work if you want to gain customer service skills. During my time at Kroger I've learned how to react to different customers from both positive and negative experiences. Overall, the management at Kroger looks out for the best interest of their employees, and all of my co-workers are friendly and easy to get along with. Once – more... again, the hardest part of my job was dealing with rude customers, but after tons of experience at Kroger I knew how to act accordingly. The most enjoyable part of my job was the satisfaction from the customer after doing my job efficiently. – less

Kroger Part-Time Pharmacy tech
Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee), Louisville, KYJune 26, 2014
I enjoy going to work because of the people I work with. The Pharmacy is great you get some great customers but like every other retail job you have some bad ones to. The worst part is that Kroger keeps cutting hours and giving reasons that are false and when that is brought to their attention they say nothing and do nothing. Kroger has become a company – more... who only cares about money. When you work their they tell you everything is about the customer and the problem with that is they have pushed their employees to the wayside. It used to be a great company now it has become to big. – less

Great place to work
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 26, 2014
I would work from 7 30 am to 4. My day would start by setting up an Olive Bar. Changing out pans and washing those. Fill empty pans with new product that had sold down during the last business day. Make sure that was available to the public by 9 AM. Make sure Olive Bar signs were correctly placed and presentable. Walk around Cheese Island and replace – more... and neaten cheese displays that have been shopped, rebuild displays of cheese. Pull out dated product, mark down products that will soon be out of date. I would make a list of product to order that had sold or needed replaced. I would make a list of cheeses that needed cut, and filled. The Deli Manager was my immediate Supervisor. Great person. The crew that I worked with were a great mix of people young and old. I enjoyed going into work everyday. Letting people taste and experience different cheeses that we sold. Help people find what they were looking for, and along the way hope that they find a new cheese. Mon & Thursday were Order days, and Receiving Days. The challenging part of the job was around the Holidays. Making sure you have enough product to sell. Making sure you have Trays and goodies made for quick pick up for parties etc. – less

A typical day at work would be I would take care of customers, check the customers out, handle money, help customers find objects that they could not locate and provide a teamwork environment with fellow employees.

Pros: off whenever
Cons: bad pay
I worked at Kroger for 5 years and just wanted something in my career field which is accounting. I love numbers and they did not want me in the office because of my school hours, so the bank was the best place for me. I did everything at Kroger. I was supervisor over the whole front- end.

Kroger Co.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), Lansing, MIJune 25, 2014
Pros: discounts on kroger brand merchandise
Cons: short handed staffing in some depts
The usual day working at Kroger would consist of keeping the dept clean, cooking and preparing food as well as providing excellent customer service. My fellow associates were lively and made the job three times as enjoyable compared to being alone. Managers at Kroger were a bit iffy, you had some decent ones but most were ok and fun to work with as – more... well. After leaving Kroger I have learned that just some if you can enjoy what you do, life would be better for you, your peers and for customers – less
