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

Pros

There is affordable insurance and the employees are good people. They are in a convenient location for customers and employees. The have a union you can join immediately.

Cons

Unfortunately Krogers does not allow employees to take vacations during Christmas week. They do not follow the Union posted agreements for set raises.

Advice to Management

Management should be more considerate towards the employees' families. Do not come off as if the company dictates their lives.

    I worked at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The immediate pharmacy staff members all work together for their company, Kroger and each other’s common good. This involves 97% of your work activities. Most of the customer-patients understand being understaffed and appreciate your efforts. Store management generally lets you do your job. The company seems stable and progressive.

    Cons

    Pharmacist area supervisors are only interested in whether you are useful to them or not. Their greatest concern is to silently maintain the status quo rather than point out excellence.
    They also have to many assistants to do their jobs. It is not cheaper to silence problems when people’s lives are at stake.
    They unilaterally reduce compensation for mileage and refuse to contribute enough subordinate staff to accomplish the day’s work in a day. The pharmacist supervisors deny overtime compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the size of your pharmacy supervisor staff. Assign each supervisor a single store each year and require 25% of their time done dispensing. These pharmacist supervisors are not interested in Kroger’s best interest like the pharmacy staff are. Scheduling is already being done by non-pharmacist staff so their position is questionable at best. I say this as a shareholder.Reduce the size of your pharmacy supervisor staff.
