Look around, most of the retailers are currently in the process of laying people off. It's only a matter of time before it's our turn. Don't think we're safe for one minute. If you're not preparing for the possibility of being cut, then you might be... — read more
Rumor in the Pittsburgh market is Giant Eagle is ready to sell to Kroger. Can anybody confirm this?
Tomorrow we'll know how the last quarter did and consequently how worried we need to be about more cuts any time soon. I didn't use to wait for financial reports for the company because I didn't care, but I've noticed that layoffs nearly always... — read more
I am an employee at Kroger, and I am embarrassed to say I work there. Ukraine looks nicer than our stores do. They are a disaster. My store has rats the size of footballs running around in Produce, and the shopping carts are always rolling around... — read more
Kroger expanded into Plano years ago and more recently it’s been building much larger Kroger Marketplace stores north of Plano and Frisco in Prosper and east of Plano in The... — read more
Once upon a time there was around 2000. Apparently the main reason they all vanished is "a study in greed, avarice and incompetence,”. Those who don't remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
Boston Consulting Group values shareholders over employees and even customers. The creepy supposedly goofy ad campaign and feel good videos mask a corporation with no real soul or empathy for its employees or apparently pigs held in inhumane... — read more
Do we know when and which positions?
A Kroger in Campbellsville, Ky. is closing later this month. The supermarket store is closing its location on 1509 East Broadway in the central Kentucky city on March 25, according to Kroger spokesperson Erin Grant. Grant said the location has... — read more
They need to go before permanent damage is done to the company. This is directed at you Stuart Aiken. You brought them in. I’m sure they have done some good but they will damage the Our Brand category before long. Look at their spreadsheets? Where... — read more
Seem like they are more interested in hiring people from other companies than looking at the people they already have with all the years of service. Kroger hasn't recovered from the early retirements they forced on people. All those years of... — read more
The average starting pay in my area is over $16 an hour with benefits. That is Walmart, target, sprouts and everyone else pays more. We start part time at $12.83 (minimum wage) go to top pay of $15.10 (after 4 or 5 years). You can never get full... — read more
Nobody knows better than I do what a cr---y place Kroger is to work. From lousy pay to being overworked to daily abuse from managers and so many other things. The thing is, so many people are choosing to stay in that environment. It took me three... — read more
What Kroger is doing is shameful. It's about time somebody stood up to the company's greed.
There are many who tell me that they planned to leave here much earlier and that they never had a plan to stay here for more than a few months. Still, they stayed for a few years. I don't understand how it happens that people stay so much longer... — read more
It used to be that you could start at the bottom at Kroger and work your way up. That's no longer true. I'm sad to say that if you're hoping to get ahead, this is not the place to be. Only join this place if you're absolutely desperate or if you... — read more
If the economy turns around, do you anticipate any Kroger layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Are the Americans who skated by all the India H1B replacements remaining hush hush so their kids get training and internships? How does that work?
Absolutely one on the worst no caring companies I have ever worked for. I am currently a store manager, and the lack of care they have for their associates is overwhelmingly clear. DON'T be fooled by their phoney "feed the human spirit" bologna, and... — read more
I'd like to know if people who were cut are going to be offered these jobs first or not. "Kroger announced Monday that it will hold a hiring event on Thursday to fill 10,000 jobs across its... — read more
After more than 10 years with the company I finally left. I just walked out. Told manager I quit and I felt such relief and even a twinge of happiness. Kroger is a terrible company that doesn’t value their employees one iota. Over the last year this... — read more
It is extremely frustrating to see the competitor 4 blocks from Kroger with people queuing up to get in the parking lot and driving down to a half empty lot at Kroger. It's obvious to anyone that opens their eyes that Kroger is not being run well... — read more
I hope you all found much better jobs after Kroger? The job at Kroger was admittedly only a temporary job for me and when the company started turning to online ambitions, then I started looking for an alternative. I don’t even know why I ever... — read more
I'd like to know if this is an isolated incident or are they closing more stores these days without making any major announcements? "Kroger will close both its Greene County grocery stores within the coming month, the company said... — read more
For the last year I’ve been feeling like this. It’s as if the company is always winning at the expense of their employees. I miss the days when it was a win/win situation. I wish upper management would make decisions that didn’t involve cutting us... — read more
Our store received out yearly bonus. 178%. Sounds like alot until you realize the bonuses structure was changed after the pandemic started. They knew it would be a record bonus for the managers. Can't have that. I ended up getting 21% more than I... — read more
Is it done?
It’s a shame what Kroger who has posted record earnings during the pandemic is doing to their workers. I used to work at a store in Seattle and luckily I’m not there anymore. My former colleagues still work there and when I saw the news I was really... — read more
Kroger has joined a growing list of large US grocery store chains offering incentives for workers to get the Covid-19 vaccine. The company announced that its associates would get a one-time $100 payment if they show proof that they’ve received the... — read more

Are the next round of bonus checks this month?
Has there been a company-wide moratorium on promotions that I don't know about? I've been promised a promotion more than a year ago now and nothing is happening. Every time I bring it up I get reassured that it's a done deal and then nothing happens... — read more
I’ve noticed every year the focus is on HOW we work instead of the actual technology we work with. Administrative overhead is up easily 50% and productivity is down. More and more business degrees and MBA types are becoming my colleague rather than... — read more
Is it just my location or does management seem to get a kick out of berating employees in front of others? Not one day goes by that some member doesn’t get humiliated in public. I find this to be very unprofessional and demeaning, not to mention it... — read more
Now we know where all of these "transformation" jobs went. Hey Rodney, do you know who doesn't shop at Kroger? People who don't live in the United States. Do you know who else doesn't shop at Kroger? Former Kroger employees who lost their... — read more
A question for long time employees: was there even a time when Kroger actually cared about their employees? I’ve been here for less than 3 years and not once have I seen anything to show this. I keep hearing about how great this company was….but NOT... — read more

I’m just reading the news that Kroger has found itself on eMarketer’s list of the top ten U.S. e-commerce retailers. According to sales, we are in ninth place, behind Wayfair, but ahead of Costco. I’m just wondering what you think of all this? While... — read more
