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

    Pros

    Kroger does an excellent job of showing their interns why Kroger is a great business to work for. As an intern I met executives, including the CEO on two occasions, and had a chance to see many departments through their different corporate buildings. I participated in taste tests in the food lab and went inside the airplanes the executives use to fly to business meetings across the country.

    Cons

    Kroger has a very "inclusive" company culture, so if you don't agree with this political position, it may get annoying.
