I had worked at Kroger's for 2 years and I just one day walked out. Well I went to work that day and my manager of clicklist was so rude to me that I just quit. I have never been that disrespected at any job like that. They also were really lazy there and made me do all the hard work because they did not want to do it. Then management was on there butt alot. It was the worst place to work I only stayed that long to make sure I had money for my kids. But now I have a new job and it seems so much better then Kroger's

They only promote what best fits their schedule and keep them from hiring others. They only want to shift the people from store to store to fit their needs. The work you put in and your work ethic make no difference.

I left Kroger because I applied for a part time cashier position but was continually scheduled for 40 hours a week because people were constantly quiting due to poor Management, extremely rude customers, and NO Managers there back up their staff. Whatever the Customer says you did or said was the truth even tho it was 9 times out of 10 flat out lies. It never occurred to Management that Customers come in the store in a bad mood and no matter what you say to them or how you say something to them, you were rude to them? I took all I could, enough was enough!!!

Was a new employee who had only worked for the company for just over a month.

Had little or no training, bad management and total disfunction.

Fellow employees called out and were late all the time.

I called out one shift just other day, because my
IBS flared up and was on toilet all day.

They let me go, even though I was a hard worker and was never told I was ever
in trouble of losing my job......

They also let me go on Christmas now I have no money to pay my bills.

Lack of training, no leadership, no respect (yelled at by a manager as a new employee).

I would recommend never working for this company unprofessional, no management, lack of training and the icing on the cake low pay.

My worst work experience of my entire life.

It’s every Kroger on something’s but I will say if your not in the click w managers, HR , even up the ladder they all have each other’s back - so the minute they know or suspect your talking the truth ...or they see your The Problem To The Company - “” so to speak “” they will try to get rid of you . Your union rep could care less what’s going on it’s true the only time she will be there is when they fire you . The stress of the job will kill you!! I’ve been in & out of the doctors office in the last four months It’s not worth it , the constant backstabbing, cut throat, stuff I have to live w myself I’m not going to lie to keep things moving to continue a pay check & road to more chaos & distruction ,to satisfy the man above.

Management structure is HORRIBLE! Despite asking for help repeatedly for adjustments to be made to the task list on graveyard, I was ignored. We lost multiple people at once, several vacations, and a very high truck volume/extra/promo trucks for the holidays. I couldn't keep up with running my back stock, finishing truck, and conditioning when my fellow
graveyard co-worker was out of town. I'd been having consistent issues with misdirection, and this finally was the last straw. I was so nauseated about trying to go in that I ended up no call-no showing for my shift, and quit the next morning. I didn't have a plan, or another job lined up, but I just couldn't do it anymore.

I worked in Floral Dept and it was more than I was physically able to do, i.e. lifting many very very heavy potted plants outside and unboxing 10+ 50 lb boxes of flowers into floral cooler often. I appreciated the opportunity to work at Kroger but needed to transfer to a position where I could function better and be a better employee. I did ask HR to find me a position less physical and was told they would look into it. I never heard back. I believe I am very capable of doing the Click List job that is being offered at the Alps Road Store in Athens, GA and will hope to get the opportunity to prove my abilities.
