I worked at Kroger part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I worked in the pharmacy during college. If you are trying to get into pharmacy school this is a good job for experience. You can pretty much take time of whenever needed.

Cons

Working exclusively with other college kids is not a professional environment. Working at a pharmacy is stressful, it is almost always busy, people are at their worst when they are sick. Physicians and insurance companies make mistakes all the time and you will get blamed for it 100% of the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is fine. You are secluded from the store so its as if the pharmacy is not governed by the store managers.

    Too much asked of Store Managment and the pay is a joke...

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kroger is a Fortune 500 company. That's about where it ends.

    Cons

    Upper management, district level up to and including executive, thinks way too highly of themselves and the company. Company has never had an original idea, let alone an original idea that works(ed). Compares itself to Publix and Walmart WAY too much. Every initiative ever rolled out has been a global FAILURE. But they company has invested way too much, spoke of it too highly, and crammed it down too many throats to take the mulligan. Also super afraid of upsetting a customer even when they are clearly in the wrong and trying to scam you. My new approach..."I don't give a darn...it's Kroger's money and Kroger's groceries! Give it to them!".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RETIRE...Oh and when you do, stop hiring your friends and relatives to take over positions in which they have no experience. This company is clearly full of uneducated rednecks that have hung around long enough to get promoted. All of you are 30+ year employees....time to give it a rest and let a different generation take the helm.

    The management at Kroger is definitely not the best. They should all have more training before managing their own store.

    I have been working at Kroger full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The only pros would have to be the great associates you work with and the small 5% discount.

    Cons

    My cons would have to be the poor management and the how the supervisor aren't eager to give out breaks when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should monitor the entire store more. Get a chance to know each employer that works with them and make them feel comfortable and happy to work there.
