Earnings report

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

KROGER HAS BECOME A DUMP

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 

Only 3 Kmarts left

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

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 

Kroger doesn't care!

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

You can always leave

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

Time slips away

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 

No upward mobility

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 

Tech jobs

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?

An absolute sh-t show

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’ve had enough

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 

Heads you win, tails I lose

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 

Manager bonuses.

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 

How many will be laid off?

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 

Promotions?

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 

What a shame

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 

Did the company ever care?

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 

WFH ... temporary, or permanent?

We non-essentials are now slated to continue working from home until 6/1. Will the company leverage this window to re-evaluate it’s necessary infrastructure to support non-essential associates? Do we need the buildings and garages, do teams really... —  read more
