    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Kroger (Cincinnati, OH) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Very long second interview with four Kroger manager-types. All were very polite. Interview took two hours including power point presentation. Standard behavior based questions. They wanted very detailed answers to their questions. I would recommend that any interviewee brush up on the STAR approach to these type of interviews. First interview was quite easy and subsequent online questions took just two hours to answer fully.
