I learned something today about getting full time
Permalink   


At our store to get full time you have to work 40 hours for 12 consecutive weeks.   A guy in our store got full time because they thought he only had 6 weeks but he really had 12.  He took a personal day several weeks ago and it was assumed that his progression started over at that point.  It turns out if you take a personal day during your progression towards full time and the total number of hours you're paid is still 40 then that week is simply not counted at all and your progression remains intact.  It doesn't count towards your progression but it doesn't cause it to reset either.  It's as if you simply skipped over that week.

It shouldnt be 40 hours for 12 weeks rather it should be 32 hours for 12 weeks. It would be very hard to work 40 hours for 12 weeks in a row. For example, I know I personally leave early here and there during an average week. So I might only work 39.5 hours one week then 38.75 the next then i work 40.00 and so forth. If you add all that up and divide by 12 - it would be shy of 40 hours!

WHen I started at Kroger three years ago at a brand new store called Kenwood Town Center, I was part time. I still had work at my previous employer. I liked what I saw with Kroger so I then asked for a full schedule of 40 hours and was told that to be full time I needed to average 32 hours over a 12 week span. I vividly recall writing down my hours everly week on a spreadsheet and doing the math to make damn sure I was on target.

what our contract states it that one has to work an average of 35 hours a week for twelve consecutive weeks. It also excludes vacation relief hours. So what you have is this. if you are around 34 hours a week for about 9 weeks , and now you get a bump to 40 for the next 3 weeks ( people on vacation) the company does not count those weeks. you have to wait until those weeks are over and the company gets back to a normal work schedule with no one off for vacations or relief work.

 

 

 

Now once you archive full time status you need to maintain 32 hours a week to keep your rate. If you go below a 32 hours a week average for 12 weeks. you can have your pay rate reduced to part time status.

 

 

If you maintain an average of 28 hours per week ( after being full time ) you will be able to maintain your full time benefits. Drop below that 28 your average and they will then drop your benefits to that of a part time rate.

 

Also if you restrict your schedule and that causes you to loose your hours and be reclassified to a part time status, you will then be able to earn your full time rates and benefits back by re-qualifying by averaging 35 hours for 12 weeks.

 

 

Now I can not be sure on this because the contract states hours worked nob a conversation , with the business agent, left me with the opinion that it was only hours scheduled, not the actual hours worked. hat was to prevent employees from working un authorized time, on their own, to reach the hours they needed. All over time has to be approved , by management, so that does not count in your average if it is not approved.
