    Interview

    You come in and then see and go to the Hr room. In that room you may have people taking computer tests which makes it a little uncomfortable. After that you may be meeting with the assisted store manager and Hr. They will ask you the standard interview questions. After that they will let you know if you have the job or they will email you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Kroger in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by the company a few days later. I was asked very simple questions and an interview was scheduled for the following Tuesday. I was interviewed twice in one day by pairs of different people including the hiring managers, supervisor and a pharmacist. It was not a long interview, actually kind of short but I think it was due to my limited work experience. They were very nice and pleasant with me. I didn't do very well and some questions were beyond my experience. It was a bit difficult for me but if you have lots of work experience and familiar with pharmacy, it probably will be easier for you. Got an email two days later saying they would consider other applicants.
