    Learn a lot about buying & merchandising.

    Pros

    Kroger is one of the better of the Chain stores. They pay well and tend to give you enough tech help.

    Cons

    Like everyone, Kroger wants you to do a bunch of BS that we did not go to school for. MTM and vaccines are pushed down your throats at every turn.

    Advice to Management

    Let pharmacists be pharmacists and not salespeople. Do not constantly whine that the reimbursement rates are horrible while we read in all the pharmacy magazines that Kroger is having record profits year after year.

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

    Pros

    discount on groceries, random discounts at other companies (employee benefits), direct deposit, convenient job close to home, WORKER'S UNION (join this immediately), and you can meet/ network with members of your community, they offer a scholarship reimbursement (up to $1,000)

    Cons

    It can be hard to get someone fired, customers are rude/ inconsiderate, this job doesn't pay much (raises are laughable), breaks are not long, compared to other grocery store jobs this is not the best option for part- time employees ( I would recommend Walmart), this job is best for someone who needs a job to hold onto for bills or a child (the union makes it easier for you to keep your job) but not good for students who need money because they don't give you enough! Additionally, your job is completely to the whim of your manager; once my grandmother was in the hospital because her brain was bleedind, I hadn't seen her in over a year and I asked my manager to get off of a 4 hour shift and they gave me such a hard time I almost stopped fighting for the day off (eventually I got it, but the fact that I had to fight for this when they get to go on vacation/ leave work for weeks because of a cold make me so sick!)

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

    Pros

    This is a good company to work for because the locals love this store and the customers always know how to put a smile on your face.

    Cons

    A major problem with Kroger is that there is minimal organization, and always short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a store manager at the store at all times, one works mornings the other evenings because things happen after 5 as well, life continues even after 9-5 jobs.

    Pros

    time goes by fast as all work is entertaining
    great co-workers
    understanding superiors

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Kroger are the patient contact and the friendly coworkers. The work environment is amazing!

    Cons

    Not many cons - apart from being under general management for paychecks etc. It is difficult to get your paycheck fixed if they screw it up and miss hours.

    Cons

    having to work at night was hard on the body

    Advice to Management

    i would advise othat you guys start hiring better working - and dont get rid of them so easily
