    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kroger (Lexington-Fayette, KY).

    Interview

    The hiring at Kroger is pretty simple. As long as you put in your application, call back within about two days. They ask you a few simple questions and drug test that day. As long as your background and drug test come back clean, your golden. After that it is a bunch of online stuff.

    Negotiation

    Since they are unionized, it's a little difficult to negotiate pay.

That day I was able meet with human resources and fill out paperwork before going home to fill out the online application to make things official. The woman in HR told me that with my background I looked more than qualified and that combined with personality, I was the right one to replace the existing manager that was leaving. The next day she scheduled me to begin training.
