"Turkey Hill Minit Market is in the C-store division of Kroger. Their business model is based on getting a $1 worth of production out of a nickel's worth of investment in employee compensation. According to the company's wage scale, which is negotiated by the corporate cost accountants with no employee input, the top M-I-T salary is $12.98/hr during training. You earn more on average only because of overtime, which is mandatory. You are expected to work a minimum of 48 hours a week. Entry level for clerks is $7.25/hr and Kroger believes the people who will take these jobs are unlimited. When you don't have clerk coverage because of call outs (a regular occurrence due to the job expectations for the wages paid and allowable coverage), you are expected to cover those hours as well as yours. Benefits are ok if you can afford them without having to choose between living expenses and retirement accounts. Negative reinforcement is the motivational program followed (you are 50 times more likely to get documented for poor performance, than given praise for a good job). If I wasn't in my mid 50's and have years invested in the company, I wouldn't be there. I will move when an opportunity arises."
"I have worked for Kroger for 13 years. They treat their employees very bad. I had messed up and they asked me to resign. But it was ok for a manager and another employee to steal and they still have their jobs. I would be very careful working for this company, they set you up. I think they should have handled the situation a lot differently than they did. And I would still have my job. The whole time I worked there never got in trouble or wrote up for anything. They should have suspended me for 2 weeks without pay, would have been good enough. But no, lost job and place to live all in one weekend. Just be careful working for this company."
