South Lyon, MI

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kroger in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied on a Sunday and got a call two days later and interviewed the day after getting the call. The lady who called me was also the one who interviewed me. My interview was easy and went by very quick. She looked over my application then asked me about my availability. After that, she told me that they do a mandatory drug test and background check then asked me if that was ok. When I said that was ok, she gave me the drug test and had me sign and initial some things. After the test was complete, she told me that she'll call me in a week when the results come back and get me set up for orientation then get me working.

Meat Clerk Interview

Meat Clerk
Lexington-Fayette, KY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kroger in January 2012.

Interview Details – It was a bit of a drawn out process and I contacted the Human Resources manager on site multiple times prior to getting the interview but once set up the interview was fairly straight forward with basic questions asked about my resume and background in jobs. There were no unexpected questions or badgering.

IOS Engineer Interview

IOS Engineer
Cincinnati, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Kroger in April 2013.

Interview Details – One on-site interview with 4 people in 1 session. Interviewers included the resource manager for the group, the development lead and two developers. Interview was less than 45 minutes. Interview consisted only of verbal questions that were primarily domain specific rather than general computer science questions. There was no white board coding and no sample code requested.

Took a brief tour of the office. It primarily consisted of one large room with multiple long rows of desks (two sided desks so that you face another person and then usually have someone to your right and left at connected desks).
