    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Kroger in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, the next day a phone interview with operations head, very personable and professional. It then took 3 days for him to arrange the others for the interview. I personally thought it was overkill to have a panel interview for a production job. HR person was very negative, while panel was asking questions (regular generic) interview she had her nose in the papers and looked up once or twice. Pretty negative..she was the other four gentlemen - were gentlemen. I wont even shop at Kroger foods= such a negative experience from that interview. I really wanted the job (overnight) and was extremely disappointed.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kroger in August 2014.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult of the interview is when they ask if you have customer service experience or any situations that you had to someone you were serving. How would you respond when a customer is angry at you.   Answer Question

    Part-Time Cashier/Deli Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    I applied for a job at Kroger online and recieved no feedback from them. While shopping at the store close to my house, I saw a posting for open interviews to be held on Thursdays from 2:00 to 7:00. I attended the open interview, showed up early and brought a copy of my resume. All participants signed on a sign in sheet and this was the order we were interviewed in. Even though I was the first one to show up, I was the 6th person to be interview because I didn't elbow others out of the way to sign up. We were called to a table in the deli eating area when it was our turn, with the other candidares sitting a few tables away. Not going first might have been beneficial because I could overhear the questions that I was about to be asked. The actual interview was easy, if you are prepared to answer questions about yourself. The woman asked me why I chose Kroger as a potential employer, three words to describe myself, what customer service ment to me, if I had reliable transportaion and also asked about my previous job experience. I tried to do more than just answer the questions with a minimum answer, when she asked about my previous jobs I talked mysef up a little and acted super confident like I already worked at Kroger. I did something right because once the questioning was pver I was directed to go upstairs to the managers offices and they did a saliva spit test right there. The store manager asked for my driver's license and filled out some paperwork while I sat awkwardly in her chair with a drug test hanging out of mouth, trying not to drool on her desk. I was told that once the results from the drug and background check come back they will call me in for orenintarion. I know that I will pass both tests and am excited to work at Kroger. They seem like they have a smooth operation going, everyone was VERY nice and the store is always clean. Another couple bonuses are that the store is only a mile from my house and as an employee I will recieve 10% off all Kroger brand products!

    Interview Details

    I went to the store I wished to work at, and picked up an application. I then filled out application that day, and spoke with the hiring manager. She conducted a basic interview about availability and desired duration of employment (e.g. summer months can work more hours vs. school year). It was a very easy process.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the careers section of Kroger. After about a week of waiting I called the store I had applied at and asked to speak with the hiring manager to check on the status of my application. I was informed they had received and reviewed it. I was told to go to a training store location for my interview with an HR rep, a few other people were there when I arrived. We were interviewed individually, I dressed business casual (no tie, just tucked in collared shirt with nice pants). After the interview I was offered a position on the spot provided my mouth swab drug test and background check were clear.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult, standard customer service questions regarding past experiences and how to deal with certain situations. Pretty easy and straight forward.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    It happen so long ago, many things have changed I guess for the better. More is done now on the computer. There is more chances of getting a job with all the new store openings. Interviews are pretty quick. They often hired someone with no experience. Promote within. It does take longer now of days waiting on back ground checks.

    Negotiation Details
    It is a union job and there was no negotiation, just where you wanted to work at in the store
