    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and about a week later was called in for an interview. The interview process went fairly smoothly. I signed in at the table they had set up out front since and even though I was early they went ahead and did the interview. I was asked questions like what do you know about this company and why do you want to work for this company. They gave me the description of what was expected from a cashier and asked if I thought I could successfully perform the duties. I was told to expect a call soon. next day they called to schedule my drug test.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Kroger.

    Interview Details

    Started out with a 1 on 1 interview. Then a panel interview consisting of 4 higher ups. Each asked 1 question and wrote down your answer. I felt that I was liked, so the interview process went smoothly for me. I've heard of others where they ask insane questions that are impossible to answer.

    Courtesy Clerk Interview

    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 Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    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.
