Kroger Companies try their best to try and make you feel like you will belong, but in the end, I was not able to stay there for very long, due to going to school in a different city, and not being able to transfer closer to my dorms.
A classic day as a cashier consisted of standing for hours on end behind a counter, being critically watched for how fast and speedy I scanned grocery items, and I was ridiculed and even written up for not scanning items in proper time.
If you worked four to seven hours, you had a 15 minute break, and if you worked 8 or more hours, you were given a 30 minute break. But I found that working a 13 hour shift and only being given half an hour to eat or drink was not beneficial or healthy, which brings me to my next point: A cashier is NOT allowed to drink water at the register. At all.
But I will say that getting to meet and interact with different people on a daily basis was always very pleasant and encouraged me to do my best to make their days better than when they came in.
Although I was concerned about my own health while working there, I enjoyed the people, and I enjoyed putting a smile on their faces. I was dedicated to the very end.
Kindness of others, Air Conditioning
Short breaks, lack of water
