Always room for advancement. Everyone is treated fairly. Always room for growth and new learning experiences. Some clinics are a little more fast paced than others but the Little clinic team members are good about helping each other.
Advance Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Knoxville, TN – July 9, 2018
I absolutely love working here. The work environment is very laid back and hours are very flexible. The NPs are wonderful and very helpful. I can say this is the first job that I’ve had where I’m actually happy and not stressed. Benefits are good too. Overall great place to work.
Patient Care Technician (PCT) (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – July 7, 2018
The Memphis region is horrible to work for! Working here is only an “until I find another job” situation. During flu season it’s extremely busy and the patients are ridiculously rude!! Management doesn’t care how their PCT’s are treated as long as the patients flow in. PCT’s literally do EVERYTHING except assess patient and prescribe medications and the pay does not equate to the workload!
Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ 85029 – June 29, 2018
As an NP I really enjoyed at the little clinic. It works very well with family and work schedule. In my typical day , I may see patients above 12 months plus and the census may vary between 20 to 35 per 11 hrs day. This job give me an opportunity to work as an NP and also management skills, independent decision making opportunities for the clinic in the absence of the manager.
The management are bullies. You would think the high turnover would alert the NCDs. They play favorites, belittle employees. Don’t call in sick or they will threaten you. You must work with the flu, stomach viruses etc. The management is petty. They micromanage everyone. They gossip about NP’s. It is the most unprofessional place I have ever worked. So glad I left! Good luck to anyone who becomes and NP here. Watch your back. The best advice I can give is run!
MANAGEMENT is so unprofessional. Bullied if you call in sick.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Perrysburg, OH – June 10, 2018
Everyone I worked with was extremely friendly and were happy to help me with any questions I had. When I first got hired, they had training courses I had to pass before I was able to work the front desk on my own. Not only were they very helpful, but if I had questions about the training, my coworkers were happy to answer them.
Patient care Technician (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 29, 2018
your always busy patients waiting on you before you even set up there is a 2 person crew with long hours and every other weekend most patients are rude because there is always a wait time and they don't have time to wait around and for the pay and long hours and attitudes just not worth it to me
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – May 3, 2018
Going into this position I thought would be a good idea due to the small work setting. However I like to learn as I grow within a company and there was not any advancement for me to grow within my scope of practice.
FAMILY NURSE PRACTITIONER (Former Employee) – Memphis, TN – April 30, 2018
Ok NP position. Hours can be long and the clinic can be fast paced. More about retail than healthcare. If a milder form of urgent care is your thing, then Kroger Little Clinic can be a great place for you.
This job is very demanding and no matter what you do there is no appreciation. The RCDs are very sneaky and very unprofessional... they will make fake calls to try to catch you in anything they can ... they don’t care about your life outside of work ... it is a company that cares only about the money .. you are there to make them money and that is all you are worth to them. Taking time off is almost impossible. You might ask a year out but will only know the month of ur request if it is approved or not. They will have people come in and literally spy on you while you work. The turnover is crazy and don’t be surprised if you are left to run the front back and the entire clinic all alone ... u are actually expected to when the front desk don’t show up ... I have worked so many jobs .... this job is the only one that made me regret nursing in all !!! This company needs to reevaluate its self and hire people in upper management that can actually be there to support the staff rather than always threatning them to be fired. It’s TERRIBLE AND DISGUSTING to say the least ... !!
Awful work life balance .. adds stress to stress changes constantly for the worse
Advanced Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Ohio – April 19, 2018
For the most part, I enjoy my job. I enjoy it because of those I work with and those patients that are nice, understanding and/or friendly, even when they may feel terrible. If you're looking to move higher up in the company, stop, it rarely happens in the clinic. You can reach Advanced level in just a couple of months, then you get a small raise and that's it. Oh, don't expect to make a lot either, it won't happen unless you're here for years...and not even then for the experience you have.
In response to comments about RNs....Perhaps I've just had a great run with RNs, but I've worked with quite a few and have only ever had one rotten egg. The others have been very nice and helpful!
Management...Ok, so instead of getting someone who has a healthcare background to oversee the clinics, they got Kroger MGMT to do it, not a smart move. Healthcare is a totally different than retail!
The Little Clinic is only a "Career" for nurses, for PCTs it's only a job You can't really make a living doing. The rules change constantly, the hours you're allowed to do change constantly, customers can talk to you as they choose and you just have to take it, oh, and the Management changes constantly. If you can handle all that, you'll love it!
Three day weekends twice a month!!
Pay, upper MGMT, working any/all holidays except Xmas.
Not the best place to work! My clinic manager is great but the RCD’s and upper management are terrible. This is one company that could care less about its employees and have no intentions on keeping employees long term. They honestly don’t want you to stay long term. They are all about numbers. They don’t care about employee safety or patient safety. Very poor management. Save yourself the headache and stress and go else where.
Primary Care Technician (Current Employee) – Lexington, KY – April 5, 2018
Great health care in a quick paced environment. The clinic manager is amazing and one of the best Nurse Practitioners they have. I would definitely recommend this job to some one that wants to work long hours and have more days off a week.
PCT (Patient Care Technician) (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – April 4, 2018
This is a great company to help get your foot in the door when starting in the medical field (which is why I started here.) Not such a great company in regards to caring for employees and working us long nights. During flu seasons you may not go home till 9:30,10 o'clock. And then you have to get up the very next day at 8 am. It doesn't give you very much work life balance due to the flip flop schedule either. Don't get me wrong, this can be a great company and I hope it does succeed cause there are a lot of great people here as well as most of my patients but it definitely needs a lot of TLC, no pun intended. For me I sadly can't go anywhere else in this company and feel that a lot and I do mean A LOT of us deserve better then what we've been given. They are always looking more towards filling their own pockets instead of looking out for us middle men. We are always the ones walked on and run over cause we're the ones that have to deal with the after effects of why this doesn't work, why they received a bill for this, why we don't accept that and on and on and on......... Again this has the potential to be a great company, but it's gonna be years until they find their issues and find common ground between management and employees. I however will not be sticking around through that proccess.
