I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kroger in February 2013.
Interview Details – Get called for an interview, if they like you they drug test you that same sitting, wait for the test to come back go in to fill out paper work. You have ten hours of computer training you have to complete before you get put on schedule and I had to travel to a different store for store training, which was a waste of time because you're really only learning the history of Kroger and nothing to do with your job title but at least that part is paid. On your first day of actual work you get dragged around and shown what to do and where everything is

Interview Question – (Out of nowhere, with no basis, or precedence except the interviewer was obviously used to dealing with kids.) You don't own a car? You ride the bus? The bus doesn't run this far on Sundays. You can't call in and say you can't come to work because of transportation. & don't forget the behavioral-assessment. The trick is to answer the questions they way you think they're supposed to be answered, so...yes, you will say that you will turn in your friend for stealing. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I could not negotiate anything because, although I've worked in retail, clerking, warehousing, and materials-handling it was not in the grocery industry. The then-current store manager had me interviewed simply because I had furniture-assembly experience and it was outdoor-furniture season as Kroger is a general merchandiser me. I started at the bottom, 7.25. I was made full-time approx. a month later and get a .25 raise every six month's. So, if I stay with Kroger, in four years I'll make 10.00. Or, theoretically, I could leave Kroger on good terms, try to get re-hired and get that 10.00 because then I'll have grocery experience.
