Meaningless/Stupid Things Kroger Managers Say
Permalink   


"If you take a half hour lunch it gives you an extra half hour to get things done."


When asked how you're supposed to fit an 8 inch product in an inch and a half space-"Thread it in."


"When I was your age we used to throw 90 cases an hour and put up 16,000 piece trucks."


When questioned about anything illogical or unreasonable they ask of you-" You have an attitude problem."


Illusion-Customer first/ Reality-"Don't talk  to the customers so much and be quicker on getting them out of the store."


You have a massive truck to work. It's pre-Thanksgiving week and you have two people to work it, plus set up ends-" Why didn't you assign aisles and do a piece count?"


"CAO works if you just let it."

"Get er done" (In reference to breaking down a truck, endcap changes, ELMS scores, cart retrieval, and customer service in the Floral, Meat, and Deli/Bakery departments) God I hope that phrase never occurs in conversation in anyplace I am once I have escaped Kroger. The thought of it gives me chills.

I was once asked to do something against Kroger Policy. A no brainer, don't do it, right? Oh no, he said do it, and let management sort it out. Then got pissed when I said flattly, "No." And got yelled at to boot for calling regional to ask a question about it.

That one bugs the heck out of me, the other one I am sick and tired of hearing is;

"Did you do your shelf review?"

"Thank you, I appreciate your taking the time to do that" ( yes I have a manager who does appreciate our comming in early, working an extra day, staying late etc. and tells us)

"Work smart not hard!"

Work smarter not harder! At least that's what my old manager would say. And on the practice of leaving your dept. to help up front, he would say It's all Kroger and you get paid by the hour.

Nice and so true, but What the Hell?! Lunch Break????? I wish!!! But If we did get a lunch break that's exactly what they would say but if you can take a thirty instead of a 60 then why not take a 15 and get 45 mins of work done. management Ass**
