Grocery manager to receiving clerk Delta
Permalink   


I switched from being a grocery manager to a recirecei clerk for the hours so I can go back to school. They told me when I stepped down the only thing I would lose was the grocery manager premium. Now they tell me that I am to receive a different base rate of pay for the premium for being a receiving clerk. 14.81 + 1.50. I am now making less than when I was a frozen food lead. Haven't had a raise in two years cause they considered those part of the grocery premium. I don't think you should be able to drop someone's base pay less than they were already making. I can barely make my bills now and still have money left over to do things. I worked for the company 12 year s in August.

I thought it was common sense that if you leave a department lead position to a clerk position, you knew you would be taking a pay cut.

That's accurate. You sound like someone I know from 456. Was grocery manager then went back to school. Department heads don't have a premium, just a singular rate of pay for that position.

In this region all major Department Managers are a set wage depending on the volume store they are in (if you get transferred your either +/- depending on the stores sales volume). Normally, leads or "specialized" clerks receive a premium for their specific job/task. There is a reason why clerks always used to want to become a Department Head/Assistant, you would get a nice jump in your hourly wage. Like the original poster indicated, there is still a large pay difference between topped out clerks and Department Heads.

 Right. Let this be your motivation to continue with school! Consider that lost pay as acceptable collateral damage, focus on your studies, and move forward past this menial retail bullsh!t.

Best to your success, for real biggrin

You don't think you should be paid more for doing less work? I can see how you've lasted at the company for 12 years.

I just don't think it's fair that they ask you if you want to switch and then basically lie about how you are going to get paid. I do just as much work as when I was a grocery manager. I just don't have to stock anything. You try dealing with 20 different vendors and making sure there counts and values match. Also maintaining the stock levels of said vendors. I had to turn a Coke load of 10 pallets because we didn't have any room and to much back stock. I also have to keep the backroom clean and organized and try doing that with people that don't care where or what they put back there.

 I started with the company making $5.25 hour at 40 hours a week. I have worked my way up from a cashier on nights and worked as a frozen food lead and then a grocery clerk, and then onto a grocery manager. So I think I have paid my dues with kroger. We get raises that don't amount to anything. Kroger makes a lot of money but they don't pay us anything in the grand scheme of things. So you saying I want to get paid more for doing less work is wrong. I'm still doing just as much work as I was doing before.
