    Current Employee - Maintenance Clerk in Noblesville, IN (US)

    Pros

    Co-workers are pretty friendly, and the job was close to my house which was nice. It was pretty easy to get certain times or days off or at least trade them with others. The discount on Kroger brand items was pretty nifty too.

    Cons

    They seriously did not want to let me switch departments because I was good at what I did. I talked to them several times about it and was brushed off every time. The only time they did talk to me about it was shortly before I was quitting.

    Current Employee - Courtesy Clerk in Duncanville, TX (US)

    Pros

    A good start for those who have no experience in working conditions. Great for High School students who are looking for a good place to start.

    Cons

    During the summer depending on where you live pushing carts outside can be brutal. Talk with other employee's about the Union before your orientation if it is crap don't join.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind that putting a limit on how many carts we push in makes it harder for the clerks to keep up with the demand when customers start rolling in by the truckload.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    if you're looking for no brainer work, this is for you. which was what i was going for. no stress, clock in, do your job, and clock out.

    Cons

    pay is minimum wage, which is great if you are a teenager. no room for advancement. they rotate leadership more than the products on the shelf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more communication!!

    Stores = Good, Warehouse = Bad

    Former Employee - Order Selector  in  Delaware, OH (US)
    Former Employee - Order Selector in Delaware, OH (US)

    Pros

    Stores: Friendly, close-knit group of people. You get a chance to get to know each other really well when working in a store environment.

    Warehouse: If you're a person who likes to work alone, this is definitely a work-alone job.

    Cons

    Stores: Beyond supervisors, upper management isn't really too concerned with their employees, and sometimes it can be difficult to get all work done (when stocking) when you have to wait on trucks to come in, and sometimes they all get there rather late in the shift.

    Warehouse: They pound "safety" into your head, but don't really seem to care much about it. People will blast through doorways without honking all the time, and there's so many people working at the same time that it's hard to figure out who to report to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Caring about your employees is step one in a long road to getting less turnover. Reminding older employees of safety standards would be nice as well.
