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

    Good Company Values and Vision But Doesn't Become Actual Progress

    Customer Service Clerk (Current Employee)
    Richmond, VA

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

    ConsThe 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working at Kroger Pharmacy has been very fun and exciting, always very busy and challenging.

    Certified Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee)
    Maryville, TN

    ProsI 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.

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementPay your technicians better, we do more than you think!!

    Very good.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Manager, flexible schedule. Great for college

    ConsSome 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 Senior ManagementDo not unionize the pharmacies.
