Department Head pay structure
Permalink   


I dunno if anyone can answer this question.  But I figured Id give it a shot. I work at another grocery store ( starts with W ends with inco).  Our pay is based off of what local union competition is.  I was wondering if anyone could help me understand how department head pay is calculated.  i feel as if our Employees are possibly getting shorted on pay compared to how your department head structure is set up.  If theres anyone could help me, Id greatly appreciate it!!

 

thank you,

:)

all based on the contract where you work and the division you work in

^ Probably that.

 

I was talking to my grocery manager recently, and they said there's supposed to be a $10 gap between a first-day worker and what they make. I think I'm $2/hr below my grocery manager. I'm a topped-out night crew stocker, I know a foreman makes $1 more than me (which is why I've turned down the offer to move up several times), and then I think the grocery manager is $1 more than the foreman.

Depends on specific department and specific contract.

But generally speaking, for more recent contracts, up to but never more than a dollar more than a topped-out employee.  For a few years I was making only $.65 less than my manager.

They get better insurance, guaranteed full time and less hassle about overtime, and a couple other perks, though.

It's almost never worth it since the increased responsibility is completely and entirely disconnected from actual power, tools, and ...reality.

You still can't do anything about anything, but now it's your fault, and specifically your fault, and the ast/store manager is threatening you about it.  And might follow through.

A lot of managers/leads without an inside path upwards (promotion is dependent on either nepotism, desperation, or talent/skill in that order) end up stepping down or out because $.65-1.00 pay isn't worth $5 of stress.

Plus Del Taco doesn't really pay much less.  Teenagers at Target make tremendously more but probably don't get any hours or benefits.

How does it work at a certain company that defines themself as winning?

 The gap in pay previously was larger, but with min. wage increases the gap has become smaller and smaller.  Years ago I went from making $8 ish an hour to making $16 as an Assistant Dep. Leader.

Starting pay at Kroger is kinda funny here in Colorado. At the non-union stores in the northern half of the state, it recently went up to $14 to try to get people in the door. It's still not quite as much as Walmart is offering, but it's something. But for some reason our union declined that $14 offer, so their employees (southern half of the state, plus meat/deli workers in the north) are still starting out at $12.xx. I've been topped out for years so it hardly applies, but damn do I feel sorry for union workers.

Our union's going into negotiations for this new contract asking for a $6 raise across the board. We'll see how much of that they get us. I follow them on IG, and those people still think we're in a deadly pandemic and need hazard pay, complain about people not wearing masks, etc. They show back rooms with trash piled high in front of doors and think it's corporate policy to blame rather (mocking the commercial, "safety standards lower than low low low") than the people who work there not having the two brain cells required to take the initiative and organize. What a bunch of morons to be represented by.

^ Me again. I called them out on the trash build-up a while back and they blocked me. Now they're posting this today:

How are those "unsafe working conditions" the fault of corporate policy? Let the store manager know of the issue, and it's on them to call someone in. If they don't take care of it, you get in contact with district to report your store's management. ****ing retarded.
