    I worked at Kroger as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pharmacy manager was fantastic and eager to help in my career development.

    Cons

    I did not have any cons at my location. Pharmacist in charge was receptive to any concerns that arose and addressed them appropriately.

    Advice to Management

    Occasionally would have to work with "floater" pharmacist who were not concerned with customer satisfaction or ensuring pharmacy operations ran smoothly.

    I worked at Kroger (More than a year)

    Pros

    I gained experience interact with friendly customers from various backgrounds. I learned how to deal with solving price discrepancies, conflict management, and various other skills. It's a good job for high school student looking for his or her first job due to the schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    While you may learn various skills working at Kroger, the pay is not enough for the work you do on a daily basis, especially when it comes to rude customers. The work becomes repetitive and dull after a few weeks. It also doesn't offer much room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Treat loyal employees better. There people who work extremely hard to make the store a success, but do not often get the acknowledgment that they deserve from the store's management.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Thank God for a Job Union. The best area to work in,you get to move around a lot and able to learn more about retail if your pretty much new to the job. The only good thing is you get paid every week so you'll at least have gas money lol.

    Cons

    Your expected to get the work done as fast as possible but your under paid as much as possible you get minimum wages and we all know that's impossible to care for a family and minimum hours 24 to 30. Then you have to work 6months before insurance kick in funny isn't it.

    Advice to Management

    We as employees would loved to stay with Kroger if the pay was better, the hours were more ,the insurance started within 30 to 90 days to care for our families.

    I have been working at Kroger part-time

    Pros

    Always has great hours available . Flexible schedules. It really works if your a student and you can't work set hours. But my store was always working with you on that . The benefits were great too we get lots of discounts .

    Cons

    Management sucks and they are always unorganized . Schedules were crazy some days we were short people some days we had more than enough . Pay is horrible and a raise comes every 6 mos or that's what they say .

    Advice to Management

    Need to update the pay . We are the lowest paying grocery store

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

    Pros

    The benefits, discounts, lawyers, union, and activities are amazing. The CEO Bruce Lucia is always in the store talking to you and he's always at events.

    Cons

    I got paid next to nothing. There is a 5 cent raise every six months. They start you at minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely learn how to get on the same page. A lot of managers seem to think their invincible and they aren't knowledgeable.
