    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed meeting the customers and providing samples of the deli food and then suggesting an item that would also go with the sample. The jewelry department was great too. Showing and demonstrating the jewelry. A lot of customer relations in both departments.

    Cons

    Not being allowed to sit down.

    I worked at Kroger

    Pros

    Working here I got to see a lot of different foods. I get discounts on food. Customers are always giving me recipes.

    Cons

    You need to be able to stand for a long period of time. You are always learning something new about customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to workers about what the customers are looking for. Work with the workers to learn more about the company they are working for.

    Work closer with employees and schedule breaks. I would also advise a schedule that was more than week to week. And make sure your department heads are on top of their departments.
