Interviewed at Kroger

Very Easy Interview

Courtesy Clerk/Bagger Interview

Courtesy Clerk/Bagger

I applied online - interviewed at Kroger in July 2014.

Interview Details My Interview was a group interview with about 8 people in applying for different jobs (including me). We all got a worksheet that asked very basic questions, What was your favorite job or assignment, what was your least favorite job or assignment, what you feel someone needs to have (personality wise) to be most helpful to customers, and how as an individual can you improve. We had to read off this portion. Next thing on the worksheet was "What is your favorite product in the store." and everyone was grouped into groups of two. We then had to "sell" her our products that the both of us chose. This was a teamwork exercise and only last about a minute per group. After that, the interview process was over and the person giving the interview gave us all a drug test and after we turned in our drug test, we were free to go and we all had gotten a job.

Floor Supervisor

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Kroger.

Interview Details I applied online through the careers section of Kroger. After about a week of waiting I called the store I had applied at and asked to speak with the hiring manager to check on the status of my application. I was informed they had received and reviewed it. I was told to go to a training store location for my interview with an HR rep, a few other people were there when I arrived. We were interviewed individually, I dressed business casual (no tie, just tucked in collared shirt with nice pants). After the interview I was offered a position on the spot provided my mouth swab drug test and background check were clear.

Interview Question – Nothing difficult, standard customer service questions regarding past experiences and how to deal with certain situations. Pretty easy and straight forward.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – If I had more experience at the time I could have negotiated for more

Front End Cashier Interview

Front End Cashier

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Kroger in August 2013.

Interview Details I put in an online application and they contacted me within a week. The interview took place in the HR office at the front of the store with a very nice lady who made the interview very smooth. There were no specific interview questions and she had to leave a few times to deal with people in store and on the phone. I did a drug test on the spot after she gave me a choice between getting carts and being a cashier/bagger and then she gave a date to come in for orientation and paperwork.

Interview Question – There were no specific questions about behavior or character that I can remember but the online application gave copious scenarios for which you could tell they were looking for specific responses.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They asked me what pay I wanted but ultimately ended with minimum wage like the rest.
