In our grocery department the overnight dp and lead positions are open, but they're never posted.  Does anyone know why this is?  You'd think that they'd give somebody the opportunity to apply for one of them.

It's not even listed on the kroger job website.

A good example of the "good old Boys" network . Store manager wants a certain person to fill the job in the store .

Not posting open jobs is supposed to be illegal. It's a violation of the federal Equal Opportunity Employment Act, and a company can get in deep **** over this.

How they usually get around it is to post the jobs, make them seem available, then just gon on and fill em with who they wanted all along any way. Nothing you can do about that.

How do I get them in trouble?

The only violation is likely non-compliance with your union contract . . . if that contract requires posting of open jobs.  The remedy would be a grievance; the extent of the "trouble" might be a manager saying, "Going forward, we will comply with the contract."

Contact a union steward or business agent.

My state isn't a part of the union though.  Probably nothing can be done about it then.  Lame.

If the job openings are supposed to be posted according to policy, you could report the noncompliance at EthicsPoint.com and see if the company chooses to enforce its own policies.
