    Pros

    Benifits. Kroger offers a pension, flexible schedule, (eventually) 4 weeks vacation, and good insurance.

    Cons

    Retail. If you've worked the field, you get it :) .

    I have been working at Kroger full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The company does a lot to try and reach out to both employees and customers.

    Cons

    The good that the company dictates is often negated by lack luster management and co-workers. This is largely due to the less than satisfying pay.

    Pros

    I like working at Kroger because the work-life balance is amazing and there is room for growth. My co-workers are amazing and very helpful. Our pharmacists are great to work for.

    Cons

    The only downside is the pay. We as technician do multiple jobs and have to be able to multitask at all times. We are yelled at by customers who are impatient or who are try to fill too early. We just want to be payed for the multiple jobs we preform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your technicians better, we do more than you think!!

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    Great Manager, flexible schedule. Great for college

    Cons

    Some stores are unionized and force the pharmacies to be unionized when they shouldn't be. Unionized pharmacies get lower pay and they are definitely not paid what they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not unionize the pharmacies.
