On the right is your future employer if Kroger doesn't get its **** together. Or maybe you'll just be unemployed.

As a former Wm employee, I'm here to assure you: that model is reversing. No, Kroger won't kill Wm, but they're quickly assuming a much stronger position.

Wm is in serious trouble. They've radically over-extended themselves.

I'd say kroger and Wm is pretty much even minus the union for Walmart which the union is pretty much worthless so yeah they're both even

Several things wrong with that pic. I worked at Walmart. Walmart is a horrible place to work which is why I quit and got a job at Kroger. At Walmart I got 28 hrs max and made $9 an hr. At Kroger I work 35-40 hrs plus overtime if I take it at $8.50 an hr. Increase when new contract passes Wow I lost $0.50 an hr when I moved, but I like my job better, get more time off, and more hours.  The new stores opening, Scan n go, and Clicklist will add to sales. I guarantee you Wal-Mart will follow with same ideas. Kroger will never be as big as Wal-Mart, but won't go out of business anytime soon. I joined this forum to ask a question not complain. Most complaints on here are about fellow employees and question about random thing not complaints about the company

Scan Bag & Go is more a PR thing to allow more SCO's to be installed, Clicklist in its current incarnation will be changed in a few years. The whole point of the automated warehouses is to drive online sales and eliminate the Clicklist hours. Clicklist is a very labor intensive department, compare their hours with your department....you will be like WTF.

ClickList is indeed labor intensive. I work in ClickList and there are currently eighteen people on the schedule... and that's after we've lost around ten people that haven't been replaced as of yet. We have a salaried e-Commerce Supervisor and two full time leads. On a busy day like Sunday, we probably use somewhere around 160 hours when you combine hours for the leads, selectors and attendants. And that's just one day out of the week. Of course, we're a high volume Marketplace, but again, it is labor intensive.

Well I stock shelves so we use a lot more than 160 hrs on a Sunday and right now we're short people because they found higher paying jobs and several new guys couldn't take on the work. Labor intensive=Pulling pallets, Stocking shelves, Running Backstock, Conditioning, and Clean up of pallets and trash every night. Not pulling a few items off the shelf and tossing them into a cart and scanning and bagging them afterwards or however you do it. I'm sure it wears you out. I guess I'll go shopping at work lol

 Some stores are better than others. It's all based on how management runs the store and how they enforce the policies. I have been with the company for almost 10 years and it has changed for the worse. It's less about the customer and more about ways to save money. They come out with programs and policies but then a year later you don't hear about them anymore. So yes you may like your job and agree with what the companies is doing but for some the stores are going down hill quickly. Just wait you will see.

agreed, first it was key retailing, then standards walk, now its best practices, basically its the same crap rehashed into different words more work and stress for clerks and dept heads and something to do for district managers and coordinators.
