Deep nepotism within the culture. Responsibility without Authority and Pay is not balanced to the time or responsibilities expectations.

I started out on minimum wage and worked to become full time with higher pay but it still wasn't much. Then I got a job offer elsewhere with a significant raise. I loved just about everybody in my department but I had some issues with management.

Kroger had most of the problems that most retail stores have. Poor management/supervisors, short staffing, pretty bad money for the amount they want you to do. Sometimes, short staffing could get pretty stressful when baggers are supposed to help up front, and clean messes around the store, and no other department could be bothered to clean their own messes. I didn't mind, it got me a little break from the front, but I still found it pretty sad. And so many customers who don't put their carts where they're supposed to go. Really guys, Kroger isn't that big of a parking lot. Then there was one time where I got a warning for carts being a mess. Thing is, I was actually helping bag up front, but as pointed above, Kroger is usually short staffed. Little things like that made it not worth it at all.

The first time? Little pay, no hours. This time? Better pay. No hours. And the give you this giant list of things to do in 6 hours. It’s impossible. Like i barely have time for a break. It’s exhausting. Literally doing the amount of work that you’d do in 8 hours in about 6 is impossible. Even when moving nonstop. They don’t get it.
