nothing is consistent. This hopefully isn't every Kroger but mine had rude supervisors, messy workers, and environment. some decent days but they were blocked by days when 3 of you have to complete everything by 10 pm. constantly understaffed and not paid for all you do. I would be upset at the people who guided me but just tried to focus on the customer. the managers are great mainly some more preferred than others. never enough people to help complete everything. a plus is that you get paid.
no matter the shift you get a break, possible free food in the break room.
If you are started out in a union its hard to get hours. i got 10 hours one week. Kroger is for young people needing a first job. The management at kroger was one the weakest teams I have ever work for.
Clicklist Attendant (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 18, 2018
My job at Kroger was in the Clicklist department, which was an online shopping service that Kroger has been offering for over two years. Over the two years of being an associate there, I strengthened my skills in customer service and time management the greatest. We were on a certain schedule for each order, and my manager was very particular in completing the orders at least an hour earlier than it is scheduled to be picked up. The culture of the department I was in had a family atmosphere. The hardest part of the job was dealing with a difficult customer, though it didn't happen often, it was hard to try to make the customer feel great after they felt they did not receive proper customer service.
People were always doin something this Fred meyers has the best costumer service I’ve ever seen in any other Fred meyers

This is a great first or second Job but not to make a career out of it because we don’t get paid enough for that I always had a great time working here with all the people and didn’t have a problem with them
Cashier/Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – North Augusta, SC – July 18, 2018
A typical day you stay pretty steady, learned how to assist customers who were on wic. Most people were friendly and willing to help when first starting. The hardest part of the job was inconsistant hours, would get calls the day needed for shift. I enjoyed the extra money I made it helped with bills
Associate (Former Employee) – Spring, TX – July 18, 2018
Low pay, low hours, terrible management, as well as just terrible horrific people. I'm baffled at the amount of hate one person can have for their employees. Wouldn't work here for even double the amount I was getting paid.
Cashiering is great as long as your manager and customers are nice
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Arlington, TX – July 18, 2018
My time at Kroger was great given the my regular customers and my relationship with my managers given the grocery base for our friendship. Although we were quite friendly that didn't interfere with the job
Cashier (Former Employee) – Hot Springs, AR – July 17, 2018
Typical day at work was very fast paced had to do 25 items a minute didn't like the experience of having to be rushed at scanning peoples food items some people didn't like the fast paced employees. It is a good workplace and other employees do help each other. The hardest part of the job for me was trying to scan 25 items per minute I'm just not that quick at things like that.
ALL-PURPOSE CLERK (Former Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – July 17, 2018
The job itself was easy. When it came to anything to do with management doing anything it was hard. I was denied whats called a "closer to home" transfer (when you have to drive 20+miles to your store they will transfer you to one that is closer to where you live). I was told the reason was because we were understaffed when we were not.
