    Store Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlottesville, VA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kroger (Charlottesville, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and met with the HR Coordinator and Store Manager three weeks later at the store I was interviewing for. If you get a callback after the interview, you "go on to the next stage", and if you don't move on, you'll get a canned e-mail rejection letter. They asked the standard interview questions, and were really friendly. They also want you to come in 72 hours notice, which annoyed me because I'm working, and my job needs at least a week's notice for time off. I don't understand why they take so long to call you back, but want you in as soon as possible.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kroger (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call 4 days later. They ask a few interview questions on the phone and then they set up an in person interview with your store. It was very easy and simple questions and when I told them what hours I could work they input them in the computer to find best where to place me. I intially applied for cashier but ended up in the bakery which was perfect for me based on my available hours to work. It was a good experience.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kroger in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was looking for a part-time job. I applied on June 30th, received a call the next day to schedule an interview for July 2nd. The interviewer I was suppose to interview with wasn't there so I had an interview with another store manager. Really laid back. She wasn't prepared and didn't have my application in front of her so I told her my current and past work experience. Spent 45 minutes talking about anything other than work. Was offered a part-time position immediately, just have to wait on the drug test to come back. Super fast process for me. Not sure if anyone else will experience the same.

    Negotiation

    No negotiation on hourly wage. The human resource guy said its minimum wage and there's opportunity for raises in the future. Wasn't really concerned because I have a full time job and I was just looking for something two days a week

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kroger (Glendale, AZ) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Never had an interview even though I was assigned for one. The interviewer never showed up and did not return my calls. I also received an email in case "she missed me" but didn't provide an email I could actually respond to. Very frustrating and a waste of my time. Not impressed with Kroger. Also the person who set up the interview from corporate was also rude.
