    Pros

    The job is easy, besides standing all day. It's the average customer service job. People think you're dumb and worthless for being a cashier and treat you as such

    Cons

    I'm not sure how this store stays open as its management can't seem to do the simplest of tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Stop "losing" employee requests. If you treated employees better you wouldn't not have as bad of a turnover. Most employees do not last longer than 3 months, and it's not the job that causes them to leave.

    Pros

    Personable employees. Nice managers. Clean.

    Cons

    Unwillingness to adhere to scheduling conflicts of the employees. Not giving enough notice of future weekly schedules.

    Advice to Management

    Please realize that employees lives should not revolve soully around work. Managers can make their own schedules that suit their lives lower level employees should be able to also.

    Pros

    Pay reflected cost of living in the area.
    Opportunities to advance in company.
    Upper management was great.

    Cons

    Did not like overnight hours, they went too far into the morning.
    Being in a grocery store just was not for me.
    It is hard to handle doing 5 night shifts in a row, couldn't have a life.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was great, but some of the management for the different parts of the stores were definitely not up to par as it should have been.

    Pros

    You often have pretty cool coworkers, nice supervisors, most customers are pretty nice people. You can roll people for hours.

    Cons

    The upper managment doesn't care about their employees, in all locations. You will often be doing more than your specified job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your employees, they're people too. Work on store upkeep, cleaning often gets forgotten. Listen and speak to your employees as though they're your equal.

    Pros

    Kroger has flexible scheduling, decent pharmacy Hours, Job security, good benefits including paid vacation for part-time, and an employee discount along with other work perks.

    Cons

    Although you continually get raises, the pay is low for certain job titles, however others pay really well. Unless you are full-time your schedule isn't too consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Be involved. Do your job. Take care of your employees. Have an open door where employees can be heard and want to speak up.
