Kroger Co. Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at Kroger Co.

Beware

Kroger not requiring employees to wear gloves. Stockers, cashiers, baggers etc. Food dept. only wearing when handling food. So all packaged items bought have been touched. Cashiers touch every item in every customer's cart that they have touched and... —  read more 

Wellbeing

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!

Closures

My girls school just closed for at least 3 weeks. My wife works at the school and is required to go to work. My supervisors response was I don't know what to tell you. Find someone to watch them or take off and loose pay. And use up you're vacation... —  read more 

Do it

We SHOULD shut down the hot/salad bar during this crisis. Prepacked foods only from prepared foods and bakery. I can't believe our company is moving so slow to make this decision.

Weird

Our store has been out of nestle purelife, now all water is gone. We were out of paper both towels and toilet paper for 2 days until the truck finally showed yesterday. It's so bad our store had to limit sales of water, paper and hand sanitizer.

Store closings

Does anyone know the process when they close a store? Trying to figure out if mines next😞

Get out of there

Next round is in October '20. So get ready for it. After that they will got rid of certain department mngs. That is why they are working on paying MODs 50 cents more.

Here we go again

So sick of the stress that comes with working for this company. I know the grass is not always greener, but it just gets worse everyday. Rodney is terrible. He will destroy Kroger completly. Good luck to everyone who is waiting to see if we get to... —  read more

Are people being fired or laid off???

There is a huge difference between the two, so I would really appreciate it if somebody could provide us with a clarification. I am worried enough as it is about layoffs, I really do not need to add firings to the mix as well (or I will need to up my... —  read more

hied - no hrs

The person in charge of hiring hired multiple new people for my department without talking to anyone. The head of our department tried to work around it by giving them training hours because they do need to be trained, but the store manager chewed... —  read more 

Dayton

Why are posts being deleted?

I see a lot of posts but the next time I get on line they are gone? What's the deal? Who has a say on what stays and what goes? I don't recall any posts inciting violence, being s-xist, etc. that would cause a moderator to take them down?

North Central New Mexico

Employees such as checkers are being or have been replaced by self checkout machines. Strange & unhappy shift from customer perspective. A downer.

Corporate me-too

It seems the theme in many large corporation layoffs. Older, more experienced employees are targeted so cheaper new hires can take their place. This saves money in the short run, but it quite possibly can be the companies ultimate downfall as in... —  read more

It's about shareholders

This is not a company that cares or values their employees, the people on the front lines making them their 121 billion. It's about their shareholders, failing business deals and being on top. All the talented a nd well seasoned employees will leave... —  read more

My guess is another layoff will be the death nail. Workers are already looking to find work elsewhere while at kroger - another massive layoff will send the message to whoever they keep who were on the fence about their job security off of it and... —  read more 

Grass Is Greener

Coming from the other side of the layoff. I just want to say the grass is greener. I know a lot of store managers like me that have dedicated their lives, moved their families to other towns or states, worked 12 to 16 hours all the time, usually 6 or... —  read more 

Nobody is safe!

if you made it through the first round of firings, this is NO guarantee you will make it with this company. It's a company that can't be trusted in any way. They can just as easily change their minds or receive commands from great leader that more... —  read more
