I have worked at the warehouse for almost 4 years and just like any job, there's good days and there's not so good days. You start at the bottom and work your way to a better position. Its hard work but if your look for something that will always be there to bring food to the table and a roof over your head, Kroger is the place to work. The pay is great and you can usually, 9 times out of 10 work as much overtime as you like. Its not hard just gets monotonous sometimes! Lots of repetition!

One of the good things about Kroger is that you do not have to compete with the Mexicans for jobs like they do with grocery store chains like Food Lion in the southern states.

I applied for the third time and got in with no problem! I got an interview and a drugscreen with an hour of being there. This time around I was proactive, I called them instead of them calling me. The job is no crazier than working at UPS and Fedex. If anything it's so much better, because you get paid more and don't have to wait six months for benefits.

I got hired there on the spot, it probably will help if you have a military background(they act like they care, they dont, they just dont want equal opportunity complaints), it had an awful turnover rate, start with a class of 20 and by 3 weeks, theres 3 left. They work you like dogs and dont give a $#!T about you. But its good money, so if your desperate.

OF COURSE IT'S GOING TO BE HARD WORK! IT'S WAREHOUSE WORK, DAH! I'VE BEEN WITH FRED MEYER ( PARENT OF KROGER) FOR 31 YEARS. I've done it all from order-selecting to receiving and currently operate a electric stand-up forklift in the grocery warehouse. This job has been good to me with an hourly wage about 23/hr. I made almost 65,000$ last year with copious amounts of overtime. Have a good pension with Teamster's in the Western Conference and am eligible to retire this year if I want to. No one said life is going to be a gimme.

enjoy the benefits, when that company starts to lose sales because prices have to be high enough to cover union wages and benefits plus profits for the company, they will begin to look at out sourcing as a way of competeing in todays market. Unions have good points and bad points.Be sure to see restructureing in that warehouse.

It is a great place to work. Been there 5 years. It isn't for the whiney or people who are afraid to work. You will earn your check.
This is absolutely true, Mr. Delaware. There seems to be a high rate of turnover in most job markets these days because younger people don't want to work hard for a paycheck.

Any job that is classified as "fast paced" is a joke. I don't care what the pay is. Doing hard work is fine but running your **** off all day and then they say you are not meeting quota is bulls**t. Most management nowdays are guys out of college with degrees that don't even know the job but try and tell you how to do yours. They get hired because the HR department thinks they know everything but won't hire a good, hard worker because of all these new on-line tests employers are using now. I am without work but will honestly never work for a big company again. They could care less about their employees.
This is true of all companies today. College graduates come in as management, having never done the physical part of the jobs they are trying to manage. Get used to it, the old days when management came up from the ranks are over.

HEY MR. NOBODY SOUND LIKE YOU HAVEN'T DONE MUCH HARD WORK IN YOUR LIFE. EVERYBODY HERE HAS TO MEET STRINGENT PRODUCTION STANDARDS OR YOUR FIRED, SIMPLE AS THAT. OUR WAGES AND BENEFITS ARE ACTUALLY QUITE UP TO PAR WITH OTHER UNION GROCERY DISTRIBUTION CENTERS ON THE WEST COAST.

By the way Mr. nobody sales and profits are at a all time high for Fred Meyer. We Teeamsters do a xcellent job and are quite proficient at what we do. So asking for decent Family wages and benefits isn't asking too much my friend.

Thank you George, its nice to see someone say something nice about a company whose attitude is DO IT OR YOU ARE FIRED must be a good feeling to know if you do not meet the standards( you may not know why you have such a high standard) you get fired. I do agree with good wages and benefits, just remember there are 1000's without work that would be willing to do those jobs at less cost and without fear of being FIRED. To much turnover in a company proves and provides less confidence to communities for the company to provide required services. Yes i have interviewed for this company twice at the Delaware location, and i caught the hr in a lie, so i imagined they just lied to me, if hired how often would they lie as an employee. So enjoy, at some time you will see a restructureing at that warehouse.

Somewhat correct, todays wms warehouse management systems and lms labor management systems only rely on being trained to operate them, meaning most anyone could do it. Most companies tell their management DO NOT MICROMANAGE this shows the employee that they are being trusted, in the mean time the computer system ( wms, lms) does the micro managing

Mr. Nobody what do you mean by the term "restructuring". Get rid of the Teamsters Union ( which won't happen here in this industry).
