    Interview

    Once you apply they call you back if they want an interview. Once you arrive at the store, you are put in a room with a handful of other applicants who are pursuing different positions. Once you are introduced to the interviewer you fill out some questions and create a sales pitch with the other applicants. After answering some questions they leave and then drug test you.

    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.

    Interview

    Applied online for any available position. About two days later received a call from the hiring manager about scheduling an interview. We scheduled the interview for the next day. The interview process was very straightforward, normal interview questions. After a few questions I submitted to a drug test upon passing the test I was offered employment to begin training the next day.

    Interview

    I applied online, they called me three days later for a phone interview and then told me to come for a in person interview. I went in thinking the questions would be easy, I wasn't prepared for it. They asked me about 20 questions from a paper, I thought I did really badly. But they called me the next day to tell me I got the job.

    I applied online – interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview

    It was pretty easy breeze, the lady was nice and didn't seem to be off. She was a little unprepared herself but I didn't let that bug me. I had to take a drug test and I didn't feel bad about it since I don't do drugs. I still have to go through orientation and training still.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kroger (Athens, GA).

    Interview

    I was called and scheduled an interview. I showed up and the manager I "interviewed" with basically just told me about the job. I wouldn't call what I had an interview although I'm not complaining. I think they just needed people who knew how to breathe, which is all this job requires anyway.

    Grocery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shreveport, LA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kroger (Shreveport, LA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    You walk in and sign a sheet of paper signing in for the interview. I have severe social anxiety so I was already nervous going into this. You sit down with about 15 other people and the interviewer goes around and asks you to introduce yourself and asks you some questions. You also have to try and sell a piece of merchandise to the other people interviewing. You have to stand up and speak in front of everyone. This would be great for social people but for someone with SAD (social anxiety disorder) it was a nightmare. I was nervous and could feel myself getting incredibly hot and panicky. I told the interviewer that I was sorry and had to leave, she walked out with me and said "are you really going to leave and keep this from getting you a job?" I told her i was sorry and that I was thankful for the opportunity. She continued to push and ask questions, she was incredibly rude, so I just left. If you have SAD and don't do good in groups I would suggest not applying here because you most likely will have a group interview.
