Service Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Newbury Park, CA – April 18, 2018
I work in the Service Deli and I am stressed beyond belief. My management is awful and my district coordinator doe not understand how a department should be run. Because in one hour, which is when they want me to start closing at nine when I am off at ten, I can totally pull the salad bar, the soup bar, the salad case, the hot-case, the sandwich bar, the hot island, fill out the PPST, the temp logs, compost, do bail, take trash out, wash all the dishes, put them away, clean the prep table, clean all three slicers, clean the combi ovens, sweep the floors, wash the floors and fill the HMR before I leave. Unacceptable, the Kroger company does not care about their employees and no matter how many complains you put in, they won't do a thing about it.
Ralphs Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Woodland Hills, CA – April 16, 2018
I loved working with the customers and with food helping people. also it taught me to work hard and effectively like a team in the deli since there was cooking and cleaning every night I was motivated to do my best each day. I had no problem with management I was always on time and rarely called out.

This is my Dream Job
Everyone that Ive ever worked with at Ralphs was truly a blessing to me I learned alot even from the People that did not like me I really enjoyed all of the jobs Ive done @Ralphs. I learned some folks are not your friends!!!
The hardest Part of the job was when its time to go home and you have just one more thing you want to get done before clocking out
The most enjoyable part is being able to help Customers and Coworkers
Combo Clerk (Former Employee) – Monterey Park, CA – March 28, 2018
I worked at Ralphs for the better part of two years as a combo courtesy clerk. I constantly busted my butt to try to work up in the company. I would push carts, jump on the register, clean restrooms, you name it. I did just about everything. And I made just over minimum wage. Management noticed my hard work and on several instances brought up promotions that they wanted to give me. Months and months passed yet nothing happened. Also, I was never offered any sort of health insurance despite my long tenure there. Leaving this job was the best thing that ever happened to me. This is just from my experience at store 715.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – San Clemente, CA 92672 – March 28, 2018
Unfortunately I would not recommend this location to anyone, overall there may be many great Ralphs worth working at, however, I have never had a worse job experience than this one. I was often bullied, including by management, and I was set with unrealistic goals, leaving me stressed and often coming in off hours to try and help. Better management would easily have solved many issues.
Courtesy Clerk/Cashier (Current Employee) – Stevenson Ranch, CA – March 19, 2018
What a horrible place to work, it’s all just a giant mess working for this company. Plain and simple. The attitude and cattiness of employees in other departments is ridiculous. Way too much drama, as well as, people who aren’t managers to expect you to do things for them, without properly asking
Short breaks (sometimes don’t happen at all), stupid daily tasks and plenty of needed unwanted attitude

Working for the company ralphs was a great experience! This company stands behind schooling and works great around school schedules. The environment was clean and fun. I thank ralphs for the opportunity and support.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – March 8, 2018
When I was employed through Ralphs, I felt that store directors weren't very caring and all business. They made everyone else feel stressed out and uncomfortable. Pay absolutely sucks because raises are far and few in-between and they are literally like 10 cents. I started at $8.00, and in 3 in a half years i left at $8.25. It was ridiculous.
Courtesy Clerk and Cashier (Current Employee) – Reseda, CA – March 7, 2018
Great environment, awesome managers, decent coworkers a lot of drama so you have to keep your distance. My only problem would be they don’t give enough hours but there are times when you have to deal with lazy coworkers and the managers never seem to notice when you’re doing a good job but you do a good job for yourself not for the company. You learn to grow from this job and engage with really great people.
Deli Associate (Current Employee) – Indio, CA – March 7, 2018
Very little or no communication. Always short handed, never enough people to do the jobs required. They will work you six days a week even when you only work 24 hours. The manager of the store is not qualified at all. They are only concerned with the numbers working out for their schedule, not the reality of what actually needs to be worked. Learned very little, since you never actually get trained for anything...you take little modules to learn a job when they remember to have you do them. The culture of the place is when you get a shout out from a customer, you get a little two dollar coupon, much like giving a dog a bone. You have little girls running around causing problems, which makes a hostile work environment, which of course the manager does nothing about, and actually promotes. The hardest part of the job is having to do more than one persons job and being expected to get them all done. The most enjoyable is getting to go home at the end of my shift, if they let me go home. Sometimes you have to stay later and no it is not always overtime and not always welcome.

Management was great. Loved all my co-workers and the business, felt like a home every time i walked in. i learned a lot from Ralphs. working as a bagger taught me to be outgoing a little bit since im a very shy person, working in the deli taght me so much i would go back if i could. Miss working there tbh.
Combo Clerk (Former Employee) – Huntington Beach, CA – February 23, 2018
I loved my job. Operating the checkstand and closing the store was good and kept me constantly busy which is how I like to be. The management was amazing. The environment was awesome. Job was not hard. Loved working in receiving with truck loads and cardboard bails and pallets.
