Assistant Deli Manager Interview

Assistant Deli Manager

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Kroger.

Interview Details – The interview process is fairly straight forward. They call you in and you talk with the HR rep and Store Manager. With initial interview, they gave me the standard questions, desired hours, experience, goals in life. Then went ahead and told me I'm hired and I did a cotton swab on the spot for drug testing. There is no one person to interview. Whichever store you apply to, that Store manager and HR rep do the interviews and hiring. Most of the interview is based off the green light/red light scorecard from the test given during the online application process.

Interview Question – Their questions are relatively straight forward. The hardest ones they will ask are the typical "how did you respond.." to some scenario. With a decent turnover rate they don't tend to ask too many difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had just moved so I only asked for as much or more than I was making at my previous employer. They were open to matching with promises of advancement and raise opportunities.
