After I hung up , I received an email and the gentleman sent me the Information for an in person interview. I went in for my interview Tuesday and was hired right away.

    One initial interview with immediate supervisor and general manager was scheduled after a phone call two weeks following an online application.

There were options presented to me if I was not interested in the advertised position. I was asked to call back in a few days after I considered what positions were available

    Reasons for Declining

    The offer was somewhat confusing as they didn't appear ready to hire me or turn me away. They wanted me to consider another position as well. Not sure what they were going for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kroger (Woodstock, GA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    The General manager printed out my application and then tells me he has 3 other people coming in that day who can work far more hours then me and tells me im lucky to even get an interview. So tip is to have your availability set to max and adjust it later on through the company website. Also if they do decide to hire you, you will take a mouth swab drug test right then and there. So be prepared!

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kroger (Irving, TX) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Group interview with no personal interaction. Very un professional and un personal, I was very un impressed. Every live body gets hired just because they showed up for the group interview. Find another company to work for and stay off the slave ship. If you a 16 and a first job this could be a good place to start, but be prepared to push carts in 100 degrees and never show up late or you will be fired.
