Overall Reviews at Kroger Stores
Referee | Martinsville, IN | Feb 4, 2020
Union was not helpful. Sided with company not who they were supposes to represent
Co workers were inviting. Lots of cross training if desired. Not impressed with raise amounts. Loved the customer's. Love helping people. Fast paced and very physical work in the department I was in.

Its an ok job to begin with
they do have a variety of hours you can work the only bad thing is that your days off are always different you never have a set schedule so you always have to pay attention to see which days are you going to have off

I’ve been employed at Kroger for over 20 years. The company is a challenging and mentally stimulating place to work. I am proud to work for this company. The culture is uplifting and there is a healthy balance between work and home life.

Manager has very poor qualities as a team leader and unfriendly not helpful acts like he is god
Management stinks. Leaders afraid to stand up for department and fellow employees. Most think only they can be right and get away with it. What is good for them definitely is not the case for newer employees

Working for Kroger is a lot of fun I get to meet a lot of people daily I’ve made a lot of friends with all the customers would love to have moved up within my position

This place is a good place to work but they don’t give you enough hours. The people that work there is nice. The management could be better. This job is good for college students.

depends on the manager
The Kroger experience depends upon the manager, and how each individual manager gets along with you. It's pretty hard to be fired once you are out of probation, though. So if you make it through your first couple months, it doesn't really matter how much the manager wants to fire you.

Great people, great place, bad leadership
Middle management positions are overworked and underpaid. They "Talk" about work/life balance, however their actions are opposite of what they say.They have let go of most everyone in the corporate office that had decent salaries and replaced with younger, cheaper executives and doubled their normal workload. Store Managers are expected to work 60+ hours and manage a bare bones staff and budget.
Advancement comes down to who you know, who you are related too, not performance.

Poor Management, misdirected rules, Great fellow employees
I had my wage raised and lowered a total of 3 times by working to advance myself in my career. Constantly were given minimal hours in the pharmacy to supply a great demand of customers. Lines from the time you walked in to the time you closed the gate. No one seemed to want to fix concerns with the lack of labor other than add more from up above

This is a union based company which provides job security. The store level management at this company is unwilling to work with your personal life as far as work schedules are concerned. They expect you to meet incomprehensible deadlines and/or time you no matter what your position is. Store management and Kroger Pick-Up supervisor uses intimidation techniques and micromanaging. Luckily management changes every few years but district management does nothing to remedy the situation. Turnover rate of employees is extremely high.
