Kroger is the second-largest American supermarket chain company. It was founded in 1883 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Today, there are almost 3,000 food stores that are owned and operated by Kroger throughout 35 states. Kroger also operates gas stations. Almost 500,000 employees are known to be working at Kroger stores and offices. Kroger is operating under many brand names such as Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, Ralphs and more.
Due to its state of being the largest supermarket chain in the United States, Kroger has nearly unmatchable job conditions such as a flexible and employee-friendly schedule and highly generous payment chances. Kroger employees usually have other benefits such as paid time off and enrollment in 401(k) retirement plans.
Kroger introduced the “Feed Your Future” program, a learning and education benefit for workers. Feed Your Future will support both full- and part-time employees, whether they are pursuing GEDs, MBAs, or professional certifications. Employees must be with the company for at least six months to qualify for the Feed Your Future program. Kroger will offer workers an education benefit of up to $3,500 a year – or $21,000 over the course of their employment – toward education and development opportunities. It also will allow employees a leave of absence to focus on their education without losing their position or seniority within the company.
