    I have been working at Kroger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High associate engagement and appreciation for the contributions of associates. Good benefits including, medical, dental, vision, 401k contributions and more.

    Cons

    None. Except, some may plateau with few options for growth. However, If you are looking for a workplace of world class standards and staying power, this is the one. Many associates retire here with 40+ years with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive in breaking barriers to reach new heights.
