    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kroger in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went online and filled out the applicant information, sent in my cover letter, resume and list of references. Then I took a personality/skills test online. A couple of days later, I received a phone call from my local Kroger store to set up an interview. I was sent to my regional Kroger store for a face-to-face group interview session. The recruiters there gave me some forms to fill out, asked me a few questions and I got the job. It was a great experience! Everyone there was so nice and helpful.

    Floral Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Lawrenceville, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lawrenceville, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Kroger in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    I started as a cashier and got moved to floral. It's honestly not hard, you apply and if your results from your application are "green", they will usually give you a call if they need a spot filled. I got called in for an interview, they did a background check, I took a drug test, and almost immediately started training.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    Simply applying online and waiting for a response. I recommend looking up who the recruiter is and emailing them that you have applied online it can help. Most likely the orientation is set by groups. Consider the Orientation as a You are Hired at least unless you fail the drug test or choose to decline the job at the last second for whatever reason you choose.

    Maintenance Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    I first applied to the job online after a friend of mine who worked there said they were hiring. I don't remember how long it took to get a call back. Maybe 3-7 days. I know it was quicker than I expected. The interview was maybe a week or so after that, and it was a pretty quick process. I was asked why I left my former job and why I was looking for new employment. She then told me that they weren't looking for positions I applied for, but they were looking for a maintenance clerk. I said I was okay with that and I was given a drug test. I was told I'd be contacted in about five days, but it was actually almost two weeks before I heard from them again, but I was hired.

    Interview Questions
    • If I remember correctly, I was asked what I could bring to the table, so to speak. Since I was applying as a maintenance clerk, I didn't really know what to say.   Answer Question

    Job descriptions are accurate so make sure thats what you want to do. If not you can always talk to someone about switching job positions even to a different department or store.

    You must speak up though if you feel some type of way about your job.
