kroger horror stories!!?
Permalink   


looking for any ridiculous stories or experiences that you or a friend have had with working at krogers. my managers were insane and terrible i just want to see how many other kroger workers had unbelievable experiences working there.  

if your interested in mine i have plenty but my favorite is when my deli department head, was standing in front of the computer and phone area, as she always was, and i was making sandwiches, the phone rang, right in front of her while she was doing NOTHING as usual,  and this woman literally turns to me and asks me to answer it. i thought it was a joke but she was so serious. that sums up my whole experience working with her tbh

IDK if you could really call it a horror story, but my worst experience working for Kroger is working with some one who whines to management all the time about others when she does nothing at all! She acts if she knows what she's doing, but then has to ask how to make a sandwich, filter the fryers, count the chicken, and make a salad. Stay in your department and actually do the work, maybe you won't have to ask questions you should already know after 6 months.

i feel that the entire work experience here is a horror story, but i suppose i'll dispense a few highlights.

for a period of a couple weeks, our main bay door was disabled beyond repair. reason being, some jerkoff rammed the power jack into it full speed. it was held open by a metal ladder on top of milk crates. that's right, milk crates, which were flexing heavily under the weight of the door i may add. we've since then got a new bay door, but someone who thinks they're funny scrawled "please do not ram jack into door!" in marker on the face of it.

back when i was working as a cc, i was all to familiar with scrubbing the latrines, but this one takes the cake in terms of absolute horror. i was spraying down the lone urinal in the customer bathrooms, and there was a particularly nasty amber pool in the bottom of the urinal. i flushed the urinal expecting it to do so, but water started rising and within seconds, the floor was being soiled with piss water. luckily, the nearby drain caught most of it, and a simple mop up solved what could have been a very seriously awful scenario.

BONUS STORY WHERE SOMETHING COOL ACTUALLY HAPPENED TO ME AT WORK

i was pushing carts one hot, summer day and an arabic looking man with a thick accent walks up to me. naturally, i think it's a customer who wants a cart so i offer him one, but instead he offers me a shawarma. i was a bit skeptical, but i took it, knowing i could just take it now out of kindness and discard it later, but i ate it. it was delicious, and to this day, i still think about that mysterious shawarma messenger.

When I first started working at Kroger, the Lead walked me through the store showing me where our truck loads go, where our displays are and explained to me rotate. She also walked me through dating our products. I served customers on my first day. I served customers and stocked display on my second day. On my third day I was to close the department. I hadn't been trained on how to do this. 2 people called in that day and they left me with a lazy slacker. He was leaving 2 hours before we were to close. Again I had even been trained to close. He said to me you take the slicers apart, the rotisserie apart, filter the fryers and take them apart, clean them, sweep and hose the floors. Then he left. I had to go with my intuition on how to do it all. The next day the whole department was talking badly about me and judging me so coldly. A week later they left me alone again, because people called off. Then others started blaming me for the mistakes they made. I decided to start putting my initials on everything that I did. This way the department could stop blaming me and start taking ownership for their own mistakes. It is almost 6 months since I started working there and they still try to tell me how to do the job. WHAAATTT? I have practically trained my self and do the job better than most of them, and now they want to tell me how to do it. That is my Kroger worst experience (horror story).

Here's one.

Just last week we were busy. Beyond swamped. We had lines melting into each other for the check stands. Lines to get into lines so you can get into... A line. 3 checkers woeking plus they had me cover courtesy clerk duties that day. No carts in the lot. We were calling, and calling, and calling for checkout help. Where was management in a this? In their office playing with a Woody action figure making it speak over the loud speaker with two other clerks. Not one came up to help. I wish I could tell you we got it all straightened out, but it was even busier when I left. And to top it all off? The Asm got mad because she thought we sent a customer to her to complain.

 Oh man. I would love to see your managers try that up by me. Store Director would cave their heads in verbally so fast they wouldn't know which way was up. Maybe that's why most of my management team are some what older individuals except for our SOM and Night Lead.
