You tell them you are going to wait. They say it will be 45 mins. You go back in 45 mins no one seems to remember that you ever walked in. I girl in the front has no people skills. If you are so busy that you can't fill it in hour tell the customer... I blame management. they couldn't even run the gas station out front.

Note to the public, last week was by far the busiest week on record. The first week of the year is the absolute worst time to get a prescription filled anywhere.. Everyone gets brand new insurance and nobody will bring their cards in ahead of time. It always takes about a month to get back to normal. So if you want to wait less, bring the store a copy of your insurance card when you get it in Nov. If everyone would do this it would be faster. Also, now that Walgreens doesn't accept Express Scripts insurance (their number one ins), all those people have to go elsewhere, and most are coming to Kroger. If you're a previous walgreens customer you can forget dropping it off and waiting because they are not doing the transfer to he next day in most cases. That's probably how it is everywhere, its going to be the new normal for a while.

My co. changed insurance this year, I got the card 2 weeks ago. I used it today at Medica and it took about 15 minutes. Face it, KROGER PHARMACY IS JUST SLOW!!

First off, why do you people who have nothing better to do get on topix and waste your time whining over pharmacies, or better yet anything at that matter. It is pointless to do so, Kroger Pharmacy could careless if they have your buisseness or not, so know one cares that your going to switch, therefore dont get on here and tell everyone your not going back because no one cares. Kroger Pharmacies are all over the U.S. and the one in Bardstown gets new customers daily, so you taking your crying self elsewhere wouldnt really matter. Also, for the FYI, to the FYI guy, pharmacists will not and do not make 200,000 a year. It is only possible if, and when the pharmacist owns there own private pharmacy (there own business). But the pharmacist at kroger are probably making in the 75,000-105,000 range, just depending on there license, years of being licensed, work experience, etc.

I know for a fact they make over 90k right out of school. Give Dana Kays or Tom Walton a call and ask them what they make a year, they've both been at Kroger for a long time. When you get your facts straight, log back on and say you were wrong

There is really only one or two pharmasists per pharmacy they act as managers the rest are normal minimum wage cashiers at least that was the way it was and still is at Walmart...I think its the same at kroger a few months after I graduated high school I saw a fellow class mate working in thier pharmacy no way she graduated college and got hired at melted within a few months of graduating jighschool...on another note I'd rather have them take long and get it right than do it fast and cause someone to od

i have never used kroger's pharmacy, but i was a walgreens customer for years. they no longer take my express scripts insurance so i just recently switched to hurst drugs. i have never been happier. they are friendly and helpful, and since i have two very young children, and it is hard for me to get out of the house some days, their free delivery service is absolutely a life saver! i would recommend anyone using them! plus it supports a local business!

I know personally that a new pharmacist will make around 80 - 85 year, BUT after a lifetime of college, we should. Hell I will be paying student loans forever

Do you call people up and ask them how much they make?

Express Scripts patients now have the option to STAY at Walgreens! Walgreens has a Prescription Savings Club that is only $5 for the month of January. It has over 750 drugs in a simple 3 tier program (TWICE the number of Kroger & Walmart), plus over 8,000 other meds that are discounted (including EVERY generic). The program is so good they've sold a record 125,000 memberships within the 1st week alone! There are several medications in which the club price is actually LESS than the Express Scripts Copay! Walgreens has been getting better. They had a couple employees leave last year because customers were being so rude and causing a hostile environment. They are fully staffed now and since so many Express Scripts patients left, their Wait times are usually only around 15 minutes or so (10-15 inside) and they PAGE you or TEXT YOU as soon as it is ready!

I used to work for Kroger pharmacy and it has its days. When I worked there just a few years ago we stayed so busy you would be luck y to get a break. On a normal day most pharmacy's was doing about 300 scripts a day we would do 700 plus you can just image how hard we worked. alot of times people got bad cause there script was not ready and 99.9% of the time it was cause because the doctors had not sent it over it was not our fault. I say give them a break most of us and as i know of they still do work 40+ hours and sometimes without a break cause it is always crazy busy!

I really prefer Medica myself, Krogers, Walgreens, and Wal-mart always mess up my daughter's insurance and the wait is horrendous. Usually Medica has our scripts done in less than 15 mins. on a busy day and they remember us by name! That's good business to me:)

It takes alittle while to reap the benefits of a good education, because a good education cost lots of $$$$$.
Patience and stead fastness should be part of the core curriculum!
It pays off in time if you stay the course.
