Great work environment and great employee benefits.
Pros: Great work environments, Good benefits
Kroger is a very good company that is well run from the top to the bottom. I was well informed on my responsibilities before starting and was given the necessary training to seamlessly transition into the workflow. A typical work day involves me helping the pharmacists in typing up scripts, putting away orders, releasing medications to patients, counting pills and pushing scripts to the pharmacist for verification. The pharmacists had an excellent system in which all the technician rotate to different positions in the workflow. I was fortunate to work with arguably the best group of pharmacist I have ever encountered and a very competent set of technicians who loved their job. I learned a lot about dealing with insurance companies, distressed patients and working in a fast paced setting. The hardest part of the job was dealing with adjudications on the first of new cycle when insurance companies change the formulary and copays. However, nothing beats the feeling of seeing the face of patient after helping them get their medication on time. Overall I enjoyed my experience at Kroger and would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
