Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Kroger in April 2013.

Interview Details

Group Interview everyone was a bit quiet and nervous. The to interviewers were not professional and seemed carless and plain rowdy. Straight forward questions followed by forward answers. After a few questions the two interviewers step out and choose who gets the job and who doesn't.

    Interview Details

    I applied a 12pm and I was called at 3pm to come in for an interview later that week. The interview was basically me taking a drug test and talking over my schedule. She did ask me some questions about myself though.

    Interview Questions
    • There was none. She was surprised that I typed up a cover letter though and handed it to her during my interview. The lady was very nice.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and Interview process is very easy. If you just go in like a normal person you will likely get hired. They are all standard run of the mill questions, Tell me about yourself, Strengths and weaknesses, etc. Honestly, the easiest interview I have ever had. I was hired right on the spot. They tell you all the available positions at the store you want and ask you your first and second choice. I found even if your favorite job is not available, they are almost always hiring all positions. I started in the Deli and within a month and a half I had transferred departments, and within six months I have two promotions and full time status under my belt. They do background checks and drug tests. They said it could take up to two weeks to get a call back. It took less than a week for me, and my boyfriend it took only 3 days. I guess it is based on how badly you are needed. Also, it is useless to inquire at the specific store you want to work. Kroger has hiring centers and associates at the stores can't help. They will only direct you to apply online.

    Interview Questions
    • No question was difficult. Just google common interview questions and answers, and it's likely that is all will be asked.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotioation. They have a starting rate. It is likely minimum wage. If you have experience with Kroger you can negotiate for a larger raise.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty formal and easy. The Associate Manager was the one that did the interviewing and she just asked the basic retail questions. It seems that if you get an interview you'll more than likely get the job as long as you don't say anything that would jeopardize that. The manager actually spent more time talking about the company than actually asking questions. She also liked the fact that I was in college since many of the employees there were attending a college or university. They also do an oral drug test with you right away in the office after the interview.

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't any negotiation. If you have experience they will negotiate pay, but if not then you will start out with the minimum amount.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. I was contacted 2 weeks later for an interview. I arrived early, and had to wait. The interviewer finally came to interview me. Was immediately asked to see my indentification and SS card. She copied it, then proceeded to give me papers describing the duties of cashier and courtesy clerk. I was asked questions regarding education, past experience, scheduling availability, customer service, and why did I want to work for Kroger. She went over the pay scale, training, scheduling, dress code, lunch/breaks, and insurance. Afterwards, I was given an oral drug test and back ground check. Exactly one week later, I was contacted to come in and do paperwork. Training was then scheduled.
