Starting Thursday.. What should I expect?!
Permalink   


I had my interview Friday and now I'm going into orientation Thursday.. After that I'm going to be working in the deli and bakery department.. Just curious for anyone who has worked in that part on what it's like and what I should expect.. I have another job right now too and I am hoping Kroger maybe works around that since I only work there 6 hours a week.. What kind of hours does the deli and bakery department get?? Any input in appriciated.. I am looking to see how this works out before I decide to give up my job I already have..

Expect the big black deli clerk to take regular dumps in random locations throughout the deli. You might here random, WOOOOOH JESUS and THANKYA LORD. Also expect her weave to be everywhere.

To answer your question they'll fill your schedule, they always need you. So make sure MyTime is accurate and approved or you'll get screwed into 8 hour shifts. Communicate with store director to be sure.  Part time status means absolutely nothing in Deli and Bakery. They will fill you to 36 hours if you arent careful to get around having to pay you as a full timer.  You'll be on maintenece forms your first few weeks, if any longer remind them to get you a kronos (timeclock code).  Always ask if you have any questions.  If you do not know, ALWAYS ask. 

As the rest of this thread says, you pretty much got assigned two of the most difficult departments in the store at once.  You will make a lot of mistakes.  And as someone whose now rolling over into a year at both departments, dont worry about making them.  Its part of learning.  If you need to move slower to get used to using a slicer and the deep fryer please do.  Your safety is important. if you do not have PPE or tools you need, make a list snd leave it with the office, and do not do the work if you are instructed to without the proper tools and being shown how.    

 Dont pay attention to people doing things really fast.  They have had practice and you have not.  Ypu're going to be expected to make them for a while.  So dont let making one get you down.

 Do NOT under ANY circumstances complain to the morning crew about the mess THEY left behind. Yes, you ARE supposed to clean up after yourself and not leave a mess behind, but complaining about morning crew's mess in deli/bakery is like swimming in shark infested water during a feeding frenzy. Not a good idea unless you want to be torn to pieces by them. (At least thats how it is in my store disbelief..)

 

Do not return the favor and leave a mess for them. Not only will it backfire, you'll have double the mess plus a nasty note written (again, at least in my store.)
