Overall Kroger is a really nice place to work. They are usually fair and do a good job of honoring days you need off.

Company Culture

i really like the people that i work with, they really do feel like friends and not just co-workers.

Support from management

i love my manager. she listens to my opinions and always takes time to explain things if i need it.

Teamwork

i really love working with mt co-workers. we get along great and they make the days go by faster and help you so you are not completely miserable at work.

Freedom to work independently

i get independent jobs all the time. i like working this way and honestly there are not enough employees for my department, so i get left alone a lot.

Internal Communication

i feel like if your just a regular employee and not in the top of the business then you are always last thought when it comes to hearing about things happening or changing.

Gender Equality

there are just as many, if not more, women as there are men in my work place. they both have same job titles, and make relatively same pay.

Attitude towards older colleagues

when it comes to older people there are certain times where they get put in certain departmentsa nd kept out of others because of their age and their ability to do things or not be able to do things.

Career Development

im just a regular employee, so i could jump up to lead, department manager, store manger or higher if i wanted to.

Overall compensation for your work

the highest i can make as just a regular employee is like 12.00. you cant really do or own anything ona max salary of 12.00/hour.

Office / Work Environment

there has been a couple times where our heater has gone out and it took months to get it fixed, making the back miserable to work in.

Environmental Friendliness

we have trash cans out in the front lobby specifically for recycling bags. as well as a trailer that comes by daily to pick up cardboard and plastic for recycling.

Work-Life Balance

i really like how good they are about giving people off on the days they need/ or want, depending on which department you work in of course.

Company Image

every company has problems, so im not giving them 5 stars but honestly overall its not a bad place to work at all.

Job Security

i work in a huge, busy grocery store. i don't think it's going out of business anytime soon and honestly if anything we are short on employees.

Handicapped Accessibility

there are handicap stalls in every bathroom, and wheel chairs, automated and regular out in the front entrance for people who need them.

Workplace Safety

they have safety meeting daily to try and keep people as safe as possible. it doesnt always work, but they do try.

Challenging Work

honestly the most challenging thing that i deal with is sometimes angry customers who like to take all their problems out on you for some reason.

Inclusive / Diverse

i work with people of all diversity, religion, age, and sexual orientation. they are not picky about who they hire.

Suggestions for improvement

  • like i said i think they should make sure that every employee, whether they are the 'top of the food chain' or on the bottom as just a regular associate, should be informed as soon as it's happening of all the changes being made and in what ways we can help the customers deal with them, so we are not caught off guard and looking like an idiot or trying to catch up last minute.

What I like about the company

i was in a huge wreck and had to be off work for 2 months in order to heal and rest up. The people that i work with saved up some money for me and gave it to me the day i got back in order to help me out. Not only that but they put me in a program that actually sent me a check for five hundred dollars in order to help with bills and anything else that i needed it for while i was out of work. I was really grateful to not only the people that i work with but the company as well.

What I dislike about the company

i think the main thing that i disapprove of is that fact that if you are not in the 'top' of the company than you are almost always the last one to know something that is going on or changing inside the company. so sometimes you are taken by surprise and it is frustrating and slightly annoying and also not always easy or fun to try to catch up.
