Productive and timely manner in a retail dept.
Customer Service Associate (Current Employee), Loganville, GAJune 22, 2014
Pros: free food on people week
Cons: short breaks, no benefits, bad managements
what I learned is managing groceries, stock items, managing a register, and helping out customers when needed. most co-workers are high school students who don't know each other very well. There are no hardest parts of a job except carrying a 120 lbs sofa or table to customers. The retail store has bad management and they always switch every 5 months. – more... I don't have any enjoyable parts of the job since I have worked there for 5 years. – less

Robert D Williams
clerk (Former Employee), Mooresville, INJune 22, 2014
Pros: meet a lot of great people
Cons: no spousal insurance
Unload bread and stock,check inventories and order,run receivers breaks and his day off, run cookies, crackers, chips and snacks and order them,stock anything else that time permits and help other departments as the need dictates on top of continuous helping the customers,help keep store neat clean. I have learned how to work efficiently. The management – more... has a tough job running the store so I do everything I can to help, I worked with a lot of good people, the hardest part of my job was ordering enough product to take care of consumer demands without hurting the company by over ordering and causing loss of profits.The thing I like the most is helping and satisfying the customers while getting my jobs done. – less

I needed gas money and this helped pay it. I loved helping customers and associating with people. This job did not pay much and it was a lot of work, but it helped me really appreciate the opportunities I've had and the job I have today.

Bakery Clerk (Former Employee), Utica, MIJune 21, 2014
Bakery break out and cake design. I learned how to frost fancy cakes. Management was fair. Co-workers were great. Hardest part of the job, not wanting to eat all the goodies. Most enjoyable part of the job, the happy reaction to a well decorated cake.

Fuel Clerk and OverNight Stocker
Over Night Stocker / Fuel Center Clerk (Former Employee), Flowery Branch, GAJune 17, 2014
I go to the back of store and start to unload trucks with the forklift and separate the pallets and use power pallet jack to take pallets down off top shelf and then sort the pallets and go to the aisles and stock the store. Management worked just as hard as me and very laid back and understanding. Co-Workers very quiet and to themselves. Hardest part – more... the shift most enjoyable is you work your own pace. – less

Kroger allowed for the ability to have a life outside of the office and not to have to take your work home with you.
