    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    Started out with a 1 on 1 interview. Then a panel interview consisting of 4 higher ups. Each asked 1 question and wrote down your answer. I felt that I was liked, so the interview process went smoothly for me. I've heard of others where they ask insane questions that are impossible to answer.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and about a week later was called in for an interview. The interview process went fairly smoothly. I signed in at the table they had set up out front since and even though I was early they went ahead and did the interview. I was asked questions like what do you know about this company and why do you want to work for this company. They gave me the description of what was expected from a cashier and asked if I thought I could successfully perform the duties. I was told to expect a call soon. next day they called to schedule my drug test.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kroger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was told Kroger was hiring so I filled out an online application at 1 or 2 am. That next morning after I woke up I called at around 9am, asked to speak to the hiring manager and said that I filled out an online application, she said for me to come in for an interview at 12 lunch time that day. The interview was basically just reviewing my application and confirming that I filled everything out correctly. The next morning she called around 8 am and asked me to come in for a background check and drug test. This was on a Friday. (All happened from Wednesday night to Friday) she told me the results would take 3-5 business days. So Saturday and Sunday didn't count. Monday was the first day then Tuesday the second then today on Wednesday I called and asked if my results were in. She immediately responded saying yes! Could you come on in tomorrow at 9 for orientation? So it's pretty much official now! I recommend to be VERY friendly. Don't be all quiet and shy. I told her I was nervous because it's my first job and we kind of just joked around and talked. The main manager was also present he didn't talk much but he kept a mean, intimidating face the entire time. I shook their hands! Both of them, which I think really helped in making me look good. I thanked them and left.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kroger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Knock out the (fairly extensive) paperwork online, and you can be drug-tested and hired at the interview.

    For a five-store north-Texas area, interviews (for all positions) were in groups. Each person in the group stood to introduce him/herself and then read or summarized answers to four multi-part, written questions.

    1. What was your best job? What appealed to you about it? What did you not like?

    2. What was the worst job you've had? Why didn't you like it?

    3. What do you think are the most important skills for use in customer service? Describe a time you used these skills.

    4. What attributes or characteristics of yours do you feel could use more development?

    My group was pretty strong—lots of bright 15-year-olds—and everyone (except the guy who fled) was hired.
