    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Kroger (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online and then went into the store to ask about the application I submitted because they never called me. She interviewed me on the spot. I asked for $12/hr. Pay started at $9.15 and went up based on experience. I have 2 years experience in retail/customer service and an additional year of customer service. She said it is possible to get my $12 but she had to confirm with other people first. She would let me know at orientation. Went in for orientation and they offered me $9.75/hr. I said that wasn't what we discussed. She said "Well I didn't say I could guarantee that." I left. I don't want to work for a company that tries to reel people in with false information. No thank you.

    Grocery Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Collierville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Kroger (Collierville, TN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    My interview was with someone other than the person I was told it would be with. The person who interviewed me did not introduce himself or state what his position with the store was. I was asked whether I had any retail experience. I am female and was told that the grocery clerk night position is "male-dominated" and the duties are fairly physical in nature. The interviewer said that if I didn't like the overnight shift to let him know and he could see about moving me to another shift. He never made a clear job offer, but I took the drug screen (it's an oral procedure that takes five minutes, the results of which are usually ready in two days.) I was not asked for my picture ID, but I did have to provide my SSN on the background check consent form. I was told that I might start work before attending orientation and that that majority of my training would be on the job. I was not told what the rate of pay would be.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kroger (Olive Branch, MS) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Beforehand, a bit of nerves hit me about what would be asked but the interview was super super laid back. And since the interviewer was very chill to talk to which made it easier to answer a couple questions and carry on a conversation. I got offered the position on the spot... went forward with drug/alcohol test and discussing questions related to training period, union enrollment, and hourly wage. I get to work at my favorite store! :)

    Difficult Interview

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kroger (Richmond Hill, GA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and 2 days later I got a call from their recruiting division and set up a time for an interview. I received an email immediately after with the name of the interviewer and the address. On the day of, my interview was with the pharmacist and we went to the break room for the interview. People were walking in and out of the room awkwardly as we conducted the interview.

    The pharmacist was really nice but he did not have any information as to my resume or previous working experience so we really just talked about what my resume would have said. He also said that there were three more interviews he had to conduct before they made a final decision and he would give me a call back.

    The next day I got a call back from the HR department at the Kroger location and she offered me the position. Although I applied for full time, she said the position offered was part time for 7.25 an hour with about 12-28 hours. I declined the offer because the pay was way too low for someone with the amount of experience I had.
