Here is the truth. This company has become a disaster. The Atlanta Division is a good ol boys club, and it is the same tired no vision a–holes that continues to get promotions. If you are an ASL, or thinking about becoming one RUN. We are treated... — read more

Does the Kroger Thank you pay go to salaried managers?
Having worked for kroger for many years and now in a management role the writing is on the wall. They could care less about their associates. Just keep pushing their associates to their max. No days off, long hours, and no family time. They make... — read more

Kroger has the managers left working (the ones they didn’t fire) 7a to 4p today and having them return at 7pm to work overnight. They don’t care about the health and well being of their staff. They only care about money!
