    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kroger (Houston, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    So I apply online. Then I look in facebook and there was a city wide hiring event . I just show up and went to a group interview of about 20 candidates. The recruiter was very matter of fact and seem as though she was on a tight schedule. We had to pick a product in the store and "upsell" it to the rest of the group. She did ask who many people were under the age of 18 in the class as well. After we were done with the presentations she took her notes went out came back about 15 mins later and basically took all the under 18 kids plus a few others and escorted them out . For us that remained we got offers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Kroger (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    About three weeks after submitting my online application, I checked my voicemail and saw that Kroger had contacted me. I called them back, and they gave me an initial phone screen, which I wasn't expecting. The questions were easy, though--nothing you wouldn't be asked in a typical face-to-face interview--so I already had answers prepared. I did well, so the person invited me to a group interview at noon the next day. There were three other people being interviewed at the same time as me, and everyone was really friendly. I have generalized anxiety disorder but this wasn't nerve-wracking at all. First we filled out some paperwork about our availability and such. Then we were asked to give a sales pitch about one of our favorite products we buy at Kroger. We were in two-person teams for this part, but each of us got graded separately. It wasn't hard at all; I think they were mainly looking for friendliness and enthusiasm. The only real interview question we were asked was something along the lines of "Talk about a time when you had to make an unpopular decision involving friends or coworkers." After that, we were all hired on the spot. All we had to do then was a mouth swab drug test. We were told we'd be emailed about orientation once our background check and drug test results came back. The whole thing lasted an hour or so, but it was so laid-back and pleasant that it didn't feel nearly that long.

    Hiring process was easy, only an online application with many survey questions to answer.
