You walk in and they throw you on a register without letting you set up and call people to your lines who are already angry they had to wait from another line they were in. Front end managers not communicating with each other is a plus. Sometimes you have two front end managers who don't know who had what breaks or where people are coming or going to. Most of the time chaotic. This is front end area. Don't know about other departments.

When you establish personal relationships with your employees and you get promoted then everything changes because they dont respect you enough to do the work instead they talk about you and management becomes no help plus nobody has your back

What's most stressful at Kroger is that if you are full-time you can be scheduled any shift. Deli Bakery is ridiculous. New hires weren't trained which made it difficult on everyone. Not only did you have to do your work, you would have to do someone else's as well. There's nothing like fake teamwork to make your blood boil. Would inform store managers but no one cared just wanted the work done. Lazy employees received the most praise while the hard working employees got more work.

If you're good at your job, they make you do other jobs in the store to make up for bad scheduling. So, because you are so good in a majority of the departments, they drag you around every which way, trying to clean up that departments mess. You also have to train on register for busy times. They pull you away from your job to cover on register even when you have a whole list of things to do.

Management is horrible they treat people like trash. Always putting something they suppose to be doing themselves off on you.

The most stressful part about working at kroger is time management. Closing up the entire deli area while interacting with customers at the same time especially when you are by yourself and that is because co workers aren't showing up to work when they are scheduled

Having to do your job, plus someone else's job that makes more money than you. I am a lead bookkeeper amd they want us to run floors and cover customer service and do my job in the cash office. They want us to do more work in the same amount of time and pay. Very stressful

Having customers physically assault you or just living fear that they WILL. Customers yell at you for being carded and yell at you for policies and rules that aren't your fault, and you just follow them.

I work in the Meat department and they make us close both the seafood and the backroom all the time by ourselves and the only reason they do this is because they don't want us to have any overtime. We are always short handed because the people in charge of hiring are always hiring incompetent people. Most of the people they hire don't even make it a month. It's getting to the point where they just hire anyone anymore and its absolutely ridiculous.
