Have you heard anything about potential Kroger Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?

I can tell you this for sure.. (at least in my district) they are looking for reasons to terminate or step down some ASMs, regardless of their performance. What does that mean? I don't know - maybe the ppl at GO will be offered those jobs or some SMs will be demoted to ASM and the GO ppl will take the stores. Kroger is a very devious company - and eventually that will be it's downfall. The turn-over rate and reviews are just terrible for this company. Eventually truth gets to enough ppl about how things are run and the best ppl apply elsewhere, now matter how good the HR headhunters try to life to lure you in - Eventually you end up with the worse employees who couldn't get work elsewhere and in the end start closing stores.
Heard GO was going to make some sort of announcement today, anyone else heard that?
"I was in the know at GO until I retired. Cuts are coming at GO in 2020. 15% of the workforce. As I remember folks that got less than an average on their reviews will be looked at being eliminated"
For person who posted above, I have a question. In the last round of firings, several SM's lost their jobs and were replaced by business unit coordinators whose positions were being eliminated. I know people in GO who were promoted from store SM positions. Can we expect more in store management people to lose their jobs and be replaced by GO people who are part of the reduction?
Of course they're taking swipes at mid-management instead of addressing waste at the corporate level. I read somewhere that Kroger's had over 120 BILLION in revenue in 2019.
Store managers directly effect the customer's experience. How much are the CEO's making?
Instead of investing all this money in uniforms changes, brand logos, little characters why don’t they invest money into their people and pricing. Give them enough hours to FILL the SHELVES. They care so much about in stock that they should give the hours to the departments. I understand that there has to be some limit with hours to be profitable. But running like this is crazy. The one thing customers are upset about is when they come to the store and the product is not on the shelf. Employee turnover is out of control, employees don’t care, management does what they can but once they try to work they get slapped with grievances. So much money wasted with this company it makes me sick.

Tons of rumors going around: Corporate headquarter cuts, more in store management cuts around bonus time, in store management cuts down to store SM and one ASM, store closings, etc. Guess we'll have to wait until 2020.
This thread will be an interesting one
