Journeyman Operations Cashier (Current Employee) – Bend, OR – May 24, 2017
The flexibility of scheduling and their willingness to help me with balancing my job and life outside of the store exceeds all my expectations. They truly care about their employees and listen to what we have to say.
Home and Gas Clerk (Former Employee) – Vancouver, WA – May 24, 2017
You were not micro managed. You were able to do a routine and get familiar with customers. You really focused on customer service. The other employees and managers made it feel friendly and nice to come to work. There were many times to come together and do events and learn about each other.
I wanted to gain experience in allied health professions in college while making a decent amount of money. I only worked here for 2 months because I wasn't even making enough money to pay my rent and had to find a new, better paying job. Pharmacy techs should not be paid the same as cashiers, ClickList, etc. the amount of training and knowledge necessary to fill this role are not valued as much as it should be.
Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Los Alamos, NM – May 24, 2017
The pharmacy technicians had worked together for several years at that store and ran it well, for the most part. There were times when I felt the pharmacy manager should have sided with the patient, but she was more concerned about defending her team. The robot filled about 40-50% of the prescriptions on an average day. The health and retirement benefits were very good.

Commute was 45 minutes. Some customer service issues.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – May 24, 2017
They hire anyone in management. Some of the people hired in management are immature and unprofessional. Some people in management harassed some of the employees and one of them quit because she was a women and felt uncomfortable. And the supervisors are unprofessional and does not set and example for the workers.

If you love to hide in the restroom and talk on your cellphone while others are working, Kroger is the job for you. Please don't work at Kroger! Management loves their lazy employees. They get all the praise, more hours and hardly any work. The employees that will actually work will get more work. Management does not care. What matters most is that the work gets done.
Discounts on groceries, cars, car rental, tickets, cellphones etc..
Kroger is a great place to work, wonderful people, wonderful co- workers. Most co- workers are very positive .
Cashier (Current Employee) – Lawrenceburg, IN – May 24, 2017
Kroger is a great place to work, great people, wonderful co- workers, positive shift supervisors. My only problem is I don't have a set schedule, work late nights, and, not receiving enough hours. I'm looking for more hours, set schedule, and, early shift.
Front End Supervisor/Cashier (Former Employee) – Lithia Springs, GA – May 24, 2017
The Kroger that I worked at was in an extremely busy area and we had a large variety of customers. There wasn't a real effort from the management to actually make the employees feel like a team so there was a disconnect between the different departments. There were times that it was difficult to get a manager to assist a customer when they had complaints.
good experence dealing with all kinds of customer issues, learned a lot about customer service
Certified Pharmacy Technician/Lead Technician (Current Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – May 24, 2017
Continuous work Constant hours Friendly staff Everyone treats you like a family and knows how to have a good time while still taking things seriously. Managers and co-workers will take time out of their schedule to help you out with anything you need and will even do things for you on your birthday and stuff. Excellent training and benefits, will definitely recommend.
In various circumstances, acted as lead stocker (Former Employee) – Dacula, GA – May 24, 2017
When I first joined to work with Kroger they would give me a schedule for the week on who is coming in to work. the job I signed up to do was to be a bagger which means i put others customer food items in the shopping carts as they are paying for them. The job gave me very little time for lunch which i was so happy about I pulled through it and and made work for me, also the manger and the employees were very nice and approachable and this was also my first job before i joined into the army.
Cashier/Clerk (Former Employee) – Washington State – May 24, 2017
I've found that at my Kroger store, the higher ups would prefer to keep their statistics high rather than their employees happy. Hour cuts and temporary lay-offs come out of nowhere. Everyone is unhappy, and coworkers don't really interact with each other. If there was an accommodation that needed to be met, there wasn't very much effort put into meeting it. My higher ups were more than happy to passively punish you if they didn't like you/weren't in a good mood. The environment didn't feel very welcoming and positive.
