I did not use the benefits package at Kroger therefore i don't know the best/worst things about them
I think its a fare package
Union funded insurance is outstanding and affordable, 401k, and stock options
Great benefits for part time employees
Well I just got on maturity leave. Thought I would get paid. Went to call the union and they told me I wouldn't because I dont have my own insurance with them. I was going to buy they wouldn't cover my pregnancy. So if you are part time and dont yave insurance with them you dont get paid. I'm mad because I'm living paycheck to paycheck. And without getting paid I cant pay for Bill's or groceries. Which stinks.
I was a part-time worker, so I was ineligible for a lot of benefits. The only thing I can comment on is the hourly pay. For a department clerk, AKA someone who stocks the shelves, the pay scale is terrible. I started at minimum wage and received a 10 cent raise after 6 months.
I liked that the company allowed for the employee's to set up their own schedules. I liked how the company provided health care, but it was too often that I would be left outside in the summer sun for hours because of a lack of baggers.
The company uses Blue Cross Blue Shield. One of the best health care out there. It takes a year to kick in though
As an employee, got a chance to use Kroger card, gives a lot of perks such as reduction in price, bonuses, et.c.
really i did not see anything as the worst gthere was alot of different things going on but i didnt se a worst to be honest kind of weird.
List based on reports from current and former employees. It may not be complete.
