Service Clerk (Former Employee) – Thornton, CO – July 19, 2018
Dealing with angry people all day was really stressful, most coworkers were friendly, enjoyed the fast paced work environment but the amount of responsibility you have compared to your pay doesn’t seem fair.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Fort Collins, CO – July 19, 2018
I worked at the busiest store in my area, so it was very fast paced. Which I am not complaining about at all, that was an up side! We even held "competitions", where we were timed on our items per minute, and given prizes for being in the top three. It was a pretty fun and exciting job. Only downside I can think of is, my department manager was friends with fellow cashiers. So he would favorite them over everyone else, and even treat others very poorly. I quit because nobody cared about his behavior and I was tired of the favoritism. It happened with multiple supervisors, he was just the worst one.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 17, 2018
My Co-workers were nice but I didn't really enjoy the job. It was fast paced sometimes, but I noticed that the cashier's would have to constantly ask me to do an age check for alcohol, cigarettes and other things that needed an ID check for. So, I would have to leave my job in bagging to go do the cashier spot, while most of the time the cashier would just stand there and not help me bag, then go back and bag and be behind in bagging. That is fine to do when it is slow but when there is a line that should not be happening. They should have an age limit on the cashier if that is the case. Also, I was told I would only have to push carts in twice ( you do it for an hour each) and there was times when I was sent out on carts 3-4 times a shift and pushing carts inside, I did that for an hour. So between 3-4 hours of pushing carts is not good on your back. Plus breaks, you got them but you never got the full amount because the time you get back to the break room or back up front, you never get the full 15 min or 30 min break for lunch.
Fun at first until they start taking atvantage of you.
Dairy Clerk (Current Employee) – Longmont, CO – July 16, 2018
This place use to be fun until they started taking advantage of me. They would never tell me when they change my shifts. They put me on night crew without telling me and I found out 2 days before I had to start the night crew. It gave me no time to try to fight it or change it and now I'm stuck on the night crew. They have done this to me several times. Management is poor. They told me I would go back to days after they hire someone for the graveyard shift, but they scare everyone away because they only offer $10.50 an hour. No body wants to do a graveyard shift for $10.50 an hour.
I loved the people I worked with. The customers were friendly. My bossed mad sure I was learning what it was I needed to learn.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – 80th and wadsworth – July 16, 2018
Working at King Soopers Deli was fun exciting I learned a lot about meets I learned a lot about how to use the machines and had away stuff with the best cheeses for what goes with what food and what cheese goes with what sandwiches. I also learned how to make deli sandwiches different kind of ways. I learned how to make different kinds of salads. I enjoyed the people I worked with.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Loveland, CO – July 16, 2018
King Soopers has a lot to offer, but they seem to be cutting back on labor and costs too much. Management is trying to keep pace with the changes, but it is hard to get the same direction from the different managers. Each one is making his or her own interpretations of the changes, so there is no consistent leadership direction.
Benefits for full time and part time
Too caught up in changes making the environment stressful
Floral Clerk (Former Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – July 13, 2018
Kings is a good place to work compared to similar jobs. Expectations are high, so it is stressful, but there is good benefits, job security, and great pay if you find the right position. Opportunities are great for advancement and even changing career paths.
Pay, benefits, job security
Flexibility with your personal schedule, Store managers can be awful
Night Stocker (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – July 12, 2018
How to be a independent hard working woman stocking groceries as well as working dairy I can truly say I worked very hard for all the jobs I've had . Customer service should come into play long before any problems or issues arise. Anticipate service issues that may occur. For example, you can offer manuals for products that you sell, include troubleshooting tips on your website, offer and make sure that customer service contacts are prominently available for online and real world customers. Make yourself or your employees available to answer questions and help lead customers to the products or services that best fit their needs. Keep prices reasonable so that customers feel they are getting a good value.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – July 7, 2018
Great first job but fast paced for low compensation. It is mandatory at the end of every night King Soopers will throw away the non sellable food in the deli including the deep fried chicken made daily. Employees should be able to take home food or donate the food to a shelter. Throwing it away is not a good solution
Typical corporation with no concern for the individual.
Night Crew Foreman (Current Employee) – Windsor, CO – July 5, 2018
Most days were 12 hours long. Work until work is done with no relief whatsoever. Management only cares for results, but will limit your ability to achieve said results by not giving the tools to successful complete job duties.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – June 29, 2018
The management was great and I got a lot of hours. I disliked the moderately low wages I was paid and the lack of flexibility in scheduling was upsetting. Coworkers were great and the environment was decent.
