Kroger Offers Employees Awesome Benefits Too

Last year, Kroger landed in our round-up of 10 grocery stores that offer employees amazing benefits.

Kroger has a “Total Rewards” package it describes as highly competitive. Make sure you ask about benefits if you apply!

We mentioned a few of the benefits employees might be eligible for in our post, including…

  • Medical plans
  • Life insurance
  • Discounted home and auto insurance
  • Adoption benefits
  • Retirement options
  • Stock options
  • Tuition assistance and college scholarships
  • Product discounts
  • Fitness tracking devices, discounted gym memberships or coaching plans.

Plus growth. Even if you snag a part-time gig in the beginning, there’s a possibility you can work your way up.

“Kroger is a place where you can come for a job and stay for a career,” says Tim Massa, Kroger’s vice president of human resources and labor relations.

He adds that 70% of store managers start as part-time clerks.
