    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview

    Asked "why do you want to work for us" and immediately gave me the job, albeit at a different position in the store. I should've interpreted it as a sign of how unprofessional the work environment was/would be.

    Cake Decorator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kroger (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Was interviewed by a different manager than who I was told I would interview with. They asked basic questions and then did an oral drug test at the end. The manager I was supposed to interview with showed up at the end. It was a fairly smooth process. They stated that since I had previous experience they would get me a higher wage but that never happened. It took nearly two weeks for the results from the drug test to come back and to begin orientation.

    Courtesy Clerk/Bagger Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview

    They asked about previous work experience and education history. They explained my job description. Asked about my availability. Did a mouth swab drug test. Failing the drug seems to be the only way to fail the interview. I tend to be shy during job interviews but this did not appear to be an issue.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Kroger in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and then was called the next day by a recruiter who asked me a few questions to determine if she wanted to put me through to an in person interview. I answered well enough that she said to come in for an interview the next day. I went in and met with the HR manager, who was very nice. We went over my resume and made a bit of small talk and I was offered the job on the spot. It was a very relaxed interview and felt more like a conversation than a Q&A.
