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.
Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Warner Robins, GA – May 5, 2015
Kroger is a wonderful company to work for, especially when you work with a great collection of managers and coworkers. If you find yourself lucky to have found such, stick with them. They are very willing to work with you and help you advance in the company. Just show them what you are worth and they will help you grow.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Paris, TX – May 4, 2015
When I 1st applied for this job it seemed like a new start for me after everything that went wrong for me a year before. I was told their were great benefits, Friendly Associates and chances for advancement. I started out as a Carry-out and it was a nice start but a few months in I really started to notice what was happening.
Quite a few associates have been working with the company for almost 5 years and they were still carry-outs and still making minimum wage. 1 girl wasn't allowed to be a cashier because her manager just didn't like her. I felt iffy about this job and if i'd ever advance up but eventually I became a cashier and I've had experience in it a few years prior and it was my main argument for me to be moved up. Then a month later they hire another carry-out who seemed like a normal kid. He did his job well but never overachieved. But a month later they bump him up to cashier. I was a little surprised because it took me 6 months and I had experience while he didn't, but I tried not to make a big deal of it but 4 months later they move him up to floor supervisor and I was quite ticked. He had no experience and this was his 1st job and never showed any signs he wanted this job but they gave the position to him anyway. Quite a few of us were ticked off by this but we knew we could do nothing about it so we just let it go along.
Frankly the job is good and great people to work with but the pay/hours/advancement Need to be worked on because they literally can't keep carryouts/cashiers for a few months.
