My store is getting CLICKLIST. How do i sign up to be a part of the department?
Permalink   


they havent posted any signs for job positions for clicklist in the breakroom but i was told my store is getting clicklist. i would like to be a selector por picker, im not sure what the position is called, but the prson who does the actual shopping for the customer. i work on the front end and i have been wanting to do clicklist since it started. but whenever their is an opening in a department in my store, they managers never post it, someone from the outside of the company always fills the position, which i feel is unfair, because if someone internal wants it, they should have a chance to apply, but they can't if they dont know the position is available. so anyway how can i search for the position or how do i apply for clicklist before my bosses start hiring brand new people who have never worked in at kroger before for the positions.

I work in ClickList. The position you want is indeed called Selector as that involves pushing a trolley around the store and shopping for customers. ClickList is a department that requires a lot of staffing, so there should be plenty of spots open. I recommend going to a co-manager, in particular the co-manager that is responsible for HR (Human Resources) matters, or even the store manager, and express your interest in being a part of ClickList. Depending on how close your store is to getting ClickList (they have to do actual build out for it as it requires space, a cooler + freezer area, a computer terminal/register station, etc...) information may or may not be readily available.

Good luck. ClickList is a heck of a lot better than the front end, so I hope you get a spot in the department!

In the MI division the Lead bid is posted in-store. Try for it! Two are selected and you just might get one of the positions. Only a couple part-time clerks were selected from current employees when we opened. The rest were new. They are going to cross train more current associates later, but complete department transfers are usually denied because then they lose their seasoned employees that staff those departments. 

 

We have selectors and attendants; however, the company is moving away from the separate designations. Everyone is technically supposed to be able to do everything.

When we got ours they posted the leads, then just had a sign up list for who was interested in going I don't know how they selected who got to go though.

Are you SURE you really want to work in CLICKLIST???   At my store, every associate I have spoken to seems to be disillusioned, or unhappy for some reason or other, with their dept.

Not enough hours alloted by Kroger ELMS, not enough help, too many people quitting/high  turnover rate, customers angry about substitutions, too many orders and they're getting behind, etc.

I really enjoy working in Clicklist. I transferred to that department a few months ago after working front end for 5 years. Everyone else seems to enjoy it too.

Similar story here. After years on the front end, ClickList has been a wonderful change of pace. It's not the perfect department, not by any means, but no department is without its headaches, hassles and frustrations.

I overheard that Clicklist selectors are supposed to be picking 1 product every 36 seconds or they aren't productive enough.

Selector is a great job for seasoned employees.  They know what and where most products are.  They don't need the map on the floor or coordinates on the handheld.  Cracks me up watching one of them count shelf spots to find a product.  I feel a little bad when I move products and price tags over to cover up empty close out spots.  ;) 

As for produce and meat, that takes a seasoned shopper to choose products well.

Forty seconds per item is the goal. Much like on the front end or overnight stocking, whether or not productivity goals are strictly enforced comes down to the person in charge of the department - in the case of ClickList, it's the e-Commerce Supervisor. When the e-Commerce Supervisor fails to enforce productivity goals, the department can really, really suffer, because the lazier Selectors take advantage of this and don't pick as much as they should during their shifts while the more hard working Selectors end up having to pick up the slack. It can be aggravating at times...

 There's a map? I don't think we have one at my store. Before Clicklist I worked front end and file maintenance (still help both randomly). And I would help drug gm and truck crew sometimes. All definitely helped me doing clicklist now.
