OMG....Like 4-6 weeks. Then when you get in they neglect to tell you that it's actually a Pharmaceutical Warehouse. However, they have it coded as "General Office" . Really"? And they don't tell you that you don't in-fact leave at ll:30pm...It's whenever you get done! And they neglect to tell you that your shift differential doesn't start at the time of day you do....it starts an hour or 2 later. And...It's NOT Union, so don't expect equality as you know it. Believe me. Was there for years and it turned me into a bitter, angry person. I'm now back to my normal self. Kroger Columbus Central Fill needs to be revamped entirely. Get rid of the two running the place & the supervisors and start anew with people that have experience. If the head honchos only knew what was going on. Or...they do, and choose to turn their heads. C'mon, it's both.

I applied through indeed with my Resume. Got a call for an in person interview. Went back a week later on a Monday for a mouth swab drug test and background check. Was under the impression that i would be starting the following Monday so i put a week notice in my other job. On friday i called to find out who i should report to on Monday but was told they were still waiting on my background check. So now i have been waiting 1 week and 3 days so far for my background check. I am out of work because i put my notice in at my other job . I cant understand why my backgroung check is taking so long. I have lived in ky for over 25 years and have no felonies and havent been in any trouble for 21 years. I applied for kroger warehouse not a store. I am wondering if this is typical as far as waiting this long for a background check for a kroger warehouse position?

All pick n save/ metro markets in Wisconsin like Milwaukee,Germantown and Menomonee Falls will hire anyone!! Apply on a monday start working Tuesday. Ive worked there 12 years and the workers and products are rotten dispite all the new construction. The pay is horrible I make 11 75 and Im at the top of my pay scale,which means if I work there another 5 years I'll just get 10 cents each year. Im only there because its extremely close to my home. The only good thing about this job is the insurance which u have to be full time to get,im happy with that. For people looking to work in the Germantown/falls area stay far away from here youll get more pay and better work environment else where.
