i have been at kroger for a year now. strictly as a bagger, never taught to use the cash register. i have asked 3 different managers months ago and said soon they would teach me. i even mention in my recent 1 year interview. still no avail. i have seen people there for five weeks. being taught cash register. then quitting. they probabley dont want to teach me. as soon as i learn register im applying at other stores telling them i can run register. which makes me more hireable.

All register jobs are different. Having experience is a plus, but it's not really gonna get you more money. haha.

 I worked at another grocery store for three years prior to working at Kroger.  I worked stock but was never trained on running register but constantly asked to relieve breaks for the baggers.

Once I started at Kroger though the first thing I did when hired was learned how to run register.  I can honestly say that its nice to know how to do it, but if you work in other departments, it becomes a pain in the ass real quick.  It's a Catch-22.

Unless you like working on the front end, I would ask to be trained elsewhere in the store if you are looking for a way out.  I'll always suggest to people to learn the meat department, especially if you want to learn how to cut meat, although I see Kroger going away from this in the very near future if they haven't already in other zones.

 Have you ever thought that maybe they know you plan on doing this and that's why they're not training you?  You might not have said anything to them to directly but  if you said it to anybody at all then there's a good chance that it could have gotten back to your supervisor or to management.  If you have to tell someone about your plans make sure you can completely trust that person and never do it when there are other people around.
