Loss Prevention Coach Interview

Loss Prevention Coach
Ripon, WI

The process took a day - interviewed at Kmart in October 2010.

Interview Details – I was taken to a meeting room in one of the stocking rooms, and conducted a one on one interview with the manager.

Interview Question – What was an example of a time that you couldn't meet expectations, and what did you do?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The manager was fair, I started my wage negotiation at a little above the previous job holders, and worked down to an acceptable wage given that I had little experience in the field.

Store Coach Interview

Store Coach
Omaha, NE

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kmart in May 2009.

Interview Details – I was contacted online by a recruiter, and then had about a 30 mi interview with her. I had to fax and pay more out of my pocket to complete the application and sundry paperwork more than at any other company I worked for. THey basically forgot about me until I called them back a week later. I had an interview with the DM which was pretty standard, lots of situational questions, etc. The DM barely made eye contact with me, seemed to care, but not much and then I waited for a decision. It came pretty quick, I was able to negotiate up a little bit, and now I am looking for somewhere that has a future...

Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you went over and above what your job called for   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Negotiate early, because there are no raises, and mostly unattainable bonuses at the Big K
