    Good Place to Work for in Pharmacy Department

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    A fair amount of pharmacy technician help, software (ERX) is not too complex to learn, good employee discount during the holidays, overall fair company.

    Cons

    Standing for 12 hours straight, meals not always possible until the end of the day, but this is not surprising for anyone working in pharmacy.

    Great Senior Management, Excellent Benefits, Fair Compensation, a Company that truly appreciates its employees and offers great upward mobility.
