    Pros

    The company offers better pay than most other retail pharmacies. The computer system used here is better than at other companies as well.

    Cons

    They seem to hire people in the pharmacy and not always have enough hours for everyone they take on. Also, you have a peer supervisor who is not always qualified to be in charge of anyone who also makes the schedule.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere, everyone is helpful and happy, stores are clean and well stocked. Good locations, employee discount is a bonus

    Cons

    Schedules are almost always swing shifts, few hours, pay isn't great for the amount of work done. Almost impossible to get on full time, so you're unlikely to get benefits. Will hire outside the store instead of giving promotions. Very few raises. Very short breaks.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employees say to you, and don't write them off so easily. Don't forget about people working outside of the store. Offer promotions and bonuses where they are deserved, not just to the people you like the most.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Great managers who do care about the customers and staff.

    Cons

    Obviously for the kind of job you are not going to make a lot of money, but good for college students looking for a buck.

    Advice to Management

    No words really come to my mind about management. Some need to just work harder.

    Pros

    One of my favorite parts about working at kroger is they work around your school schedule very well. Also the benefits are very good and cheap I pay $12/month for blue cross.

    Cons

    They expect too much from you and some people are difficult to work with. Also they do not pay you to think, just do what you're told.

    Pros

    If you work hard managers treat you ok. I like most of the managers. most seem to work hard.

    Cons

    Promotions are given without merit. Cultural chair person can and has nominated themself as associate of the month. Only popularity matters. Hard work gets you nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at what goes on. Managers see only what some employees want you to see the people who have good work ethics should get promoted. Morale is not good when wrong people get promoted.
