    When filling out the online application there is a very long behavioral portion. The interview was less of an interview and more of a Drug test. After the drug test was cleared I was called in to discuss position and pay. Potential use was predetermined through the screening process.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ypsilanti, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Kroger in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Get called for an interview, if they like you they drug test you that same sitting, wait for the test to come back go in to fill out paper work. You have ten hours of computer training you have to complete before you get put on schedule and I had to travel to a different store for store training, which was a waste of time because you're really only learning the history of Kroger and nothing to do with your job title but at least that part is paid. On your first day of actual work you get dragged around and shown what to do and where everything is

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Royal Oak, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Kroger in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was minimal, I was told at the onset I was basically already hired, just needed to do mouth swab and wait on results. Once results returned there were a few days of paid training, mostly modules done on the computer.

    Interview Questions
    • Like I said they play it pretty fast and loose here, don't expect to be challenged in the interview process.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation, a call basically meant you were hired. Note that this is for unskilled, entry level jobs. If you have experience in a department you might have a different hiring experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Kroger in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an online application friday and was called saturday afternoon to come in sunday morning (today). It was a 1 on 1 interview with the general manager. i wasn't asked much, the basic where have you worked/gone to school/what are your plans for the future. I was given a drug test with an oral swab, you just leave it in your mouth for about 10 minutes. He informed me that when it came back cleared i'd be sent to a different location for an orientation meeting, and then a separate day (i think) would be computer training, i guess all the training is done on a computer program. both of those i'd be paid for.

    Interview Questions
    • there wasn't anything unexpected or much questioning in general, he did most of the talking.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    no negotiating, the job starts out minimum wage but with the union you get a raise every 6 months. and i filled out my application for "any" available position & he hasn't decided if i'll be going up front as a cashier or in the deli, i said i would prefer up front but i think he's leaning towards the deli, he had me meet the deli manager but after he still said we'll see where we can put me.
