To start Kroger's starting wage for all entry positions is 8.00 per hour. They expected us to minimize shrink (wasted / donated product) but at the same time expected us to maximize product that was on the tables to keep displays looking good. Lacked the necessary amount of equipment used by all departments.

Mangment was never together and always sat in the office except for frank. No overtime and raises are super small. . The company had a set raises rate. And the company wasn't understanding when it came to certain health issues
Productive workplace with family values instilled into employees

The position i was hired on at kroger was entry level, but there is quite alot of room for advancement. Everyone ive worked with has been friendly and enjoyable to be around. I loved almost all of the managers i worked with. The star bucks and sushi bar are great places to eat when you take your break. Starting wage at the lowest level position i believe is around $8.25 including 50 cent raises every 6 months. Pretty good deal if you're looking for an entry level job to get through college. If you like it enough you can definitely rise through the ranks and make a career out of it.
Employees are very friendly, managers are super nice and helpful, multiple places to eat in store
Only allowed 15 minute breaks if you work 7 hours or less

I loved working there and I worked with some amazing people. I enjoyed going to work and it wasn’t as bad as i thought it was. I got paid breaks and it was easy to feel comfortable in that work environment

Working at Kroger's provided me with an opportunity to meet and socialize with people from all walks of life, daily. It was truly a great experience and the cashiers really helped each other. Management, however, could've been much more than what it was.
Store Financial Closer, and Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – October 22, 2018
this is a very large corporate retailer with ;many stores so often local decisions come from an office many states away. The local culture is excellent, salaries are competitive but hard to earn a living on, but the benefit package is strong.
Store management is great; they are very flexible and willing to help you find the right role. For example, I was hired for one position but then was given opportunities to learn other roles, including my current one as a Starbucks barista.
Flexible work environment; great benefits for full-time employees

When I first started working here, it was ok, and as time went on it didn't seem like the store manager cared enough about the departments, and just wanted to have things done even when we were understaffed. Cared more about saving money then actually have things done.

While some managers were amazing towards the end of my time there they replaced the really decent managers with those who were not as good. They played a lot of favorites and it became more about who you knew than how well of a job you did.

i enjoyed my time with Kroger stores. i only left because i was going off the college out town. The workday was steady and the management team was very approachable and willing to assist whenever i was unsure about something or just needed to ask questions.
