    Interview

    The application process was unclear and they changed it from in store recruitment to an external company without notifying. I called a few time and asked them and they didn't give me an exact answer until one time I found by accident that they changed the policy and that my application was gone.

    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.
