    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Kroger (Portland, OR) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I am already an insider here but have applied for numerous jobs. I had four, yes 4 interviews for this particular job. I was fairly confident I had it, I was supposed to hear about their decision when they returned from an overseas buying trip, but I got a generic letter in the mail a couple days later saying thanks but no thanks. I was appaled given I have worked here 20 years and they can’t set two minutes aside to tell me in person somehow, or even keep their word about making the decision. End of story, I will not try again.
