Topics regarding layoffs at Kroger Co.
I've read many comments on here, but none seem to touch on the reason it all started. I work for Kroger myself, but I also own 2 small business, and see what many cannot. A lot of you understand, or are at least aware of, something called 'versus... — read more
Can anyone post confirmed numbers for their area/division for people fired? I've just been trying to figure it out. I heard it was 33 for Kroger Mid Atlantic (I personally know 4), but I don't have confirmation. I also heard that other areas had a... — read more

1st hand knowledge of multiple separations today, most with severance packages that are somewhat reasonable. In my area, they are the same ones used in 2017. Looks like for salaried associate they offer 1 month if pay for every year up to 5 years of... — read more
I really can’t see any way that they will stop at this, so I guess the natural question that comes to mind is who is going to be next on the chopping block, and how big of a reduction of workforce are we looking at when this is all over? Also, can we... — read more
Are you just guessing? or did it come from a reliable source?
Have they started? Anything else being affected?
I found this somewhat useful. I'm still getting used to still being here while some of my good friends (and our best employees - I always have to emphasize that) are gone. I guess survivor guilt is... — read more

I come at this wth a perspective of multiple years of experience in GO and in the Divisions and yes the Stores as well. The day that Dave Dillon left as the leader of the company started us on the path we are on today. The decisions since his... — read more

I retired last year after 43 years of service with Kroger. Over that time period I watched as managers who in the past actually were allowed to make decisions that positively effected store sales are now reduced to clipboard toting zombies. As hours... — read more
I don't know why this is going on maybe God knows but I hope that the ones that have been layed off get back to work soon
So many of the posts left on this site are almost entirely uneducated and unfounded. So many people commenting on things they only heard about. This of course through hearsay or maybe from an employee that was personally touched by restructuring... — read more
I am a Kroger retiree and no longer shop Kroger stores. All the employees act like they are angry and very unhappy. You can’t give good customer service if you hate your job. I would rather shop at Walmart even though I said I never would. Their ... — read more
I’ve been with Kroger for 10 years and the last 3 have been awful! If they keep running the way they are with no baggers and short in every department they will be out of business in the next 10 years. When all the customers have to bag their own... — read more
