Very demanding workload
Staff Pharmacist (Current Employee), Irving, TXAugust 13, 2015
Pros: Very good compensation and benefits package
Cons: Management is not supportive
From open to close there was always too much to do. We were expected to do so much with absolute minimal amount of people to do the jobs. They trained me to be proficient in many cutting edge aspects of pharmacy but many times that was more of a burden. I did enjoy providing quality care to many of the Kroger customers. Kroger does compensate their employees well but the demand to meet expectations makes the work environment very stressful.

First job...
Stock Associate (Former Employee), Georgetown, KYAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Discount
Cons: Pay, Culture, Management, Advancement Opps
From what I experienced it is very demanding for what little you make to come to work.

The store I was located had a lot of associates with drug abuse issues and there is almost no opportunity to advance...quickly anyway.

Meat Clerk (Former Employee), Hilliard, OHAugust 12, 2015
Pros: free food, fun job
Cons: short breaks, if ever breaks
I enjoyed working for Kroger, until they noticed. I was given a heavy workload while other people, people who were making more would often stand around simply because of seniority.

Great learning environment
Retail Associate / Florist / Customer Service (Former Employee), Porter, TXAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Friendly work environment, great management
Cons: No benefits
As a florist, I had learned more than I had intended. Not only was I responsible for projects, but I was also introduced to the field of customer service. I personally enjoyed my experience with Kroger, and my co-workers. Working retail allowed me to engage more with the customer. There were times where I found it challenging, but I remained positive and excelled in my profession.

Fun, but can become annoying at times.
Courtesy Clerk (Former Employee), Roseville, MIAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Conversations, costumers, pay every week(Thursday).
Cons: A lot of standing.
A typical day included bagging groceries and gathering carts from the parking lot. Management and coworkers were enjoyable to work with. Everyone seemed like a "family". The hardest part is for sure all of the standing. It does take a huge toll on your back if you are not used to being up for so long. The most enjoyable part was nice conversations with the costumers and coworkers.

Dirty and Unfriendly
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee), Flowery Branch, GaAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Employee Discount
Cons: Bad Company
I had a hard time working at Krogers. Most of the areas were dirty, and my co-workers werent the nicest of people. They paid very little and gave even less hours. I averaged about 12 hours per week, and that was DURING the holidays. I was not properly trained in how to do my job and then was looked down upon because I was unable to do my job properly. When raises came around, those few people who actually did get a raise only got about a nickel raise. All together, a very poor company who cares nothing for its workers.

couldnt move up
courtsey clerk (Former Employee), centerville ohioAugust 10, 2015
Pros: good manangers, great benefits, union
Cons: can't move up, low pay
I've worked at Kroger for over a year. I started out in the meat department but due to a lack of training I was forced to move to the front end which cut my future raises and benefits. After being a bagger for three months I began asking about other positions and was told several times that I would be moved to another department but that never happened. My hours got cut more and more as time went by because of corporate and there was nothing I could do about it. I only heard of the benefits but from what i here they are unheard of but they come out of your paycheck and I dont see how anyone makes enough there to afford it.
