    Good Place to Work for in Pharmacy Department

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Kroger

    Pros

    A fair amount of pharmacy technician help, software (ERX) is not too complex to learn, good employee discount during the holidays, overall fair company.

    Cons

    Standing for 12 hours straight, meals not always possible until the end of the day, but this is not surprising for anyone working in pharmacy.

    I worked at Kroger part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Typically a pretty fun job. Coworkers are generally great people and management is very professional. Overall, it wasn't a bad part-time job.

    Cons

    It's a customer service oriented job, so it can be kind of routine at times. Also, it requires standing for most of the time. But that is expected in this type of job.

    I worked at Kroger

    Pros

    Great flexibility with students schedule

    Cons

    Do not allow you to take leave of absence when you go away to school - have to quit and come back which causes you to lose seniority.
