Thread regarding Kroger Co. layoffs

Is this true?

Corporate cuts are coming in 2020. 15% reduction in head count.

Where did this info come from? Is this just somebody guessing or is it based on something concrete? Any more info would be appreciated.

I don't know if that is true - but - I do know for they are looking to get rid of some ASM's. Maybe it's confined to my district - I don't know.

Interesting that we layed off all these great people. Just to make wallstreet happy. How do they react. Down grade our stock. At this rate junk stock here we come.

Just get over it is spot on.... you can’t clean house and trim the fat at division level without taking a hard look at the General Office..
@QFCVeteran.... exactly... when did sales really start suffering? Probably can trace it back to the time GO brought everything in house.... including the merchandising...
Unlikely Rodney is going to lose his job anytime soon... but if Dave Dillon were to lose faith in him.... !!!

GO has already cut jobs, and forced retirements to Manufacturing occurred 2 years ago. Most got severance packages.

15% cut is not enough cuts up there in GO, cut all these folks from “key retailing” that travel all over the country doing audits but have very little clue of what reality is like in the real world. They cost us $9,000 just on expenses. Hotels, flights, foods. Thats per period. Not even counting their salary.
Cut the fat in every dept in GO, just go thru knowme and look at the org profile and see how much “fat” it’s in there. Marketing, consumer affairs, HR (of course). And put some jobs back on buyers.
We do not need this many VPs! One per division is enough. Save us millions w that.
Then look at division positions, customer 1st, comm. manager, food and safety, expense, labor , FE mgr, fuel, all can be combined on some shape or form.
BTW, our company is being run by an accountant. He doesn't understand ppl. The merchandisers in charge of the depts. In GO are a joke.... and the ppl they promoted under them too... thats the root....
We can do this right and get the company back in line, but we must start we cutting the fat from every angle, including the top. Sorry, but he has to go, too many bad decisions.
Ocado.... our promise... FE transformation... CX walks... . bad promotions... the list goes on and on.
Then after the fat is cut, decentralize the divisions. Let each division run themselves, they know more than the incompetents in GO. They lost touch.
That’s a start and we may have a shot.

Why not just do it now? Just get it over with. Most people are sick of it anyway.
