    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    Group interview, if you get nervous this is great. I very much preferred this to an individual interview. It was weird that they never said I was hired. I was called for the interview then everyone came back the next day and was told when to pick up the uniforms.
