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

    Pros

    The base pay of 12.50 hourly can go up 18.00 an hour if registered and certified as pharmacy tech. It is based on a percentage per year in which you are graded by managers that sometimes really do worse than you on a job. Plus, you can get a yearly bonus check if your full time, based on percentage as well.

    Cons

    Like any other business that only cares for the business and not so much for employees. Meaning, you go around their schedule even though they say flexible scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    Do your job, but don't forget that your expendable too. All employees are people and we all are expose to help each other out. Get to know people before you make a hasty decision to get rid of them.

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

    Pros

    Health care, paid breaks , union job,easy going but be prepared to work especially if it's a midnight shift.. I do stock, physical demanding & challenging cause the pay could be better, got to love getting 40hrs but being part time...but when they cut hours your screwed! Paid weekly, offers direct deposit & sometimes the company gives you free food. Some of the people are really nice, but remember trust no one, ' cause you can get thrown under the bus very quickly!

    Cons

    Will not hire for full time, you have to be there for years to sign a bid to get a full time job. Some store mangers make me wonder how did you get this job or you hate this job so much you make your employees miserable!!!

    I loved the learning aspect of the job. Especially working along experienced pharmacist.

    Customers ruin the experience. They expect you to finish their prescriptions in 1 minute, and give it to them for free.
