    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kroger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Knock out the (fairly extensive) paperwork online, and you can be drug-tested and hired at the interview.

    For a five-store north-Texas area, interviews (for all positions) were in groups. Each person in the group stood to introduce him/herself and then read or summarized answers to four multi-part, written questions.

    1. What was your best job? What appealed to you about it? What did you not like?

    2. What was the worst job you've had? Why didn't you like it?

    3. What do you think are the most important skills for use in customer service? Describe a time you used these skills.

    4. What attributes or characteristics of yours do you feel could use more development?

    My group was pretty strong—lots of bright 15-year-olds—and everyone (except the guy who fled) was hired.

    Part-Time Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Kroger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through the Kroger website. Afterward, I received an email informing me that I was invited to a group interview (the email said Congrats and everything-very friendly). So on the day of the group interview, I arrived early and waited as others came. In all, only three people came to the group interview, including myself, but according to the interview lady, there are usually more people who attend, probably around ten. I'm not going to lie, I felt cheated because this was my first job interview for my first job, and I'm only a high school student, but the others in the room who were also applying for cashier positions were adults who both had college degrees and job experience, so in comparison, I did not stand a chance. Anyways, the interview lady gave us a sheet of paper with five questions on it asking things such as what was the best assignment you were given at your last job and what was the worst assignment, etc., etc,. After we all answered the questions on the paper, she made us each individually stand up and present our answers which I'm not going to lie, was a bit weird and kind of unnecessary, but it did give you a chance to alter your answers after hearing them aloud. Then the interview lady asked us to pick our favorite item from the Kroger store and make a sales pitch for it, and she made us present as a group (we totally nailed this part). And after all of that was over, she addressed each one of us individually to discuss open positions and scheduling. Unfortunately, I did not get a job offer, but the other two adults in the group interview did-props to them.

    Co-manger Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kroger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I met a Kroger recruiter at a job fair. He gave me the information on the position and I gave him my resume. He called me a few days later, before I even submitted an online application. He scheduled me for a phone interview, which just went over my history. I was asked to come in a few days later for a face-to-face interview. The second interview had two men, the DM recruiter and the DM trainer, asking me about my history again and then they gave me a few "what if" scenarios to answer. The questions weren't terribly difficult, although there were a few trick questions and the interviewers were constantly trying to unnerve my confidence in my responses. The second interview was about an hour long, and it wasn't the most pleasant interview I've had. A few days later, I was called to come in and be part of a panel interview. The people interviewing me had been with the company for many, many years, so many of the questions were about my personality and long-term goals and commitment to the company. This interview wasn't difficult at all, so I coasted through it and received an offer later that day. The entire process took a little more than 2 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kroger in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Typical boring application - name, DOB, SSN, work experience, previous addresses, at least two references, and the always-fun personality questionnaire. I was called in for an interview in two days, and I did it on the same day. I also did the drug and background check on the same day. Five days later, I was asked to come in to show my ID and other stuff to prove I'm a citizen. I used my ID and Social Security card. Birth certificate counts as well. Oh yeah, the interview! Interview was fairly simple. Questions consisted of the following:

    "Provide an example of when you provided great customer service."
    "What does 'customer service' mean to you?"
    "Provide an example of when you had to work on many tasks at once."
    "Provide an example of a time when you had to handle an angry customer."
    Generic questions about previous jobs
