Do not replace the hours
Permalink   


Does anyone know why Kroger would be in support of this? Basically, if the front end has call ins or nobody shows up, we are not supposed to have other people replace their shifts, or offer those who called in an extra shift to cover the hours they lost when they called in. Can someone please tell me WHY this is a good idea?

It's not a good idea, plain and simple. Kroger isn't about good ideas though. This is a company that is all about putting profits above people (whether the people be the employees or the customers). If they don't replace the hours, then the company gets to keep a little extra money (even though this can cost them more money in the long term due to disgruntled customers going elsewhere). That, to Kroger, is what is considered a "good idea".

This is something they always do after the holidays, they try to make up for the "added" during the holidays. Did your store have ALL LANES OPEN for the holidays? Well those hours are "added" not earned hours, so it goes again their ELMS scores.

If someone up by me calls in, the CSR / Manager will ask around to find a replacement. I know I got called in early by the Store Director one day cause a UC walked off the job after refusing to clean the toilets and backtalked the Director, needless to say, you backtalk or disobey the top boss, you can just consider yourself gone right then and there.

 Can't tell you why they think that it's a good idea. Just that we've had it happen at my store. Namely in our department when the cake decorator was out sick a couple of days. And our store manager said not to call any one in or replace her. But it was supposedly meant to "teach us a lesson" from what I've heard.

But still no lesson is being learned in my opinion, other than how you can screw us even more. I mean sure there are others that can decorate cakes and do back up as well. But given the fact that people that are schedule at particular times have particular jobs of their own to do so that the department runs smoothly. We don't really have very many peeps available to do their work plus another person's and then another person's as well if the back up manager is gone.

Just not possible. So I'm crossing everything that we get more closers and bakers and so forth. Just so we can lighten the load. Cause as is, things are so tight now that the one college chick I mentioned a while ago, that had no availability for Sundays. She's been "offered" more hours to her schedule if she works on Sundays. So it's like, anything they come up with for us to end up doing without someone is just dumb to me.
