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

    Pros

    Benefits are great, scheduling can be worked easily to have off for appts, etc without using PTO, definitely not boring and keeps you on your toes

    Cons

    My district was a good ol' boys club and unless you were like by the district staff members that mattered, you were simply a number until they want to hold you accountable for something. Nights, holidays and weekends belonged to Kroger so family life was gone.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know all of your staff

    I have been working at Kroger (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Better than CVS or Walgreens

    PBMs are reducing reimbursement --> Kroger is underpaying and under staffing. Corporate doesn't care about you (but when does it ever?).

    Be better to your pharmacist and pharmacy techs
