Part-Time Cashier Interview

Part-Time Cashier

I applied online and interviewed at Kroger.

Interview Details The hiring process was pretty nice, the Hiring manager was pretty amiable and kind. She called and made sure I could make it to the group interview and worked with me on the subject of my birth certificate not being in my possession at the time. She was very friendly and even waiting for the other interviewees before she started.

Interview Question – The most difficult or unexpected question was the whole Union situation. The union situation kind of felt very pushy and didn't really seem like an option to actually opt out of. But I did make my decision on my own and I'm kind of glad the guy was a little pushy about the union thing. As I was immediately treated unfairly on my third day on on the job training. I'm probably going to try to contact him for more information.   View Answer

Co-Manager Interview

Co-Manager
Richmond, VA (US)

I applied through college or university and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Kroger in January 2013.

Interview Details Multiple interviews, mostly behavioral and then 2 online assessment tests, overall nothing too difficult and seemed like a normal hiring process. Started with a phone interview, then one in person, and finally one with the District Manager for the region I would later be placed. The 2 online tests seemed to both be personality tests, just to help them rank you.

Interview Question – Just be ready to talk about yourself (Strengths/Weaknesses), conflict resolution, and leadership activities   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – An offer was given with no negotiation for me

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Kroger.

Interview Details I had an interview with the HR at one particular store. The HR was very sweet and on the older side. Honestly the easiest interview I have ever done. Manners are huge. She was presently surprised when I shook her hand. It seemed like she already knew that she was going to hire me half-way through because the interview transitioned from interview questions to talking about what the job entailed.
