Will Kroger decrease my pay?

I started working for Kroger as a deli associate making $11/hr. I worked up until I made $12/hr. I then had surgery and wasn't able to work in that area. 

However, when I came back to work, the store was in the process of closing.

Now, at my new store, I'll be working as a bagger. Will my pay be decreased? What can I do to prevent that from happening?

    You'll have to ask them what they are paying you. If it is less, tough luck. You get what you are offered.

    probably unless you can get a higher level job.

    Not much you can do other than point you what you were making IF they offer you a job as a bagger at a lower rate.  Then you have a decision to make.

    You can't prevent a change in circumstances from happening. If you are not a deli assistant in the new store then you will probably get paid what baggers get paid.

    Kroger typically pays based upon the job, and a bagger would get a lower rate of pay.

  • If your pay rate is negotiable, usually it's not with retail. But can try having a chat with your manager or HR. Ask if they can keep you on, with the same pay rate that you had.

    If you're working at a new store, you don't have your pay decreased. You just have a new level of pay. Talk to the HR manager with any questions.
