You May—if you are the type of applicant we are looking for. $18,671 is a conservative estimate of the amount a KROGER employe will receive at retirement age if he joins our Employee Profit-Sharing Plan at age 21 and saves only $2.50 per week. This estimate is based on Kroger net profit in 1949 and 1950. Less than one-third of the estimated $18,671 is from four savings. The rest comes from Kroger profits and earnings on investments.
