    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Kmart in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    If you are trying to apply for any positions at K-mart in Hawaii, I suggest you walk into the store and apply for a job because I applied online and they didn't get back to me for at least a 2 months. I walked in and told the manager about how they didn't get back to me online, jokingly, and I just told her straight; I wanted a job. She then called me that night, she was very interested and wanted to see if I could meet with her tomorrow at the store for an interview. The interview was like any other job interview, I was nervous and wordy but she calmed me down and, in the end, we just laughed. I was hired the next day.

    Electronics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in North Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Kmart in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    While I was at the interview I was asked various of times "Why do you want to work with us?" I responded for experience. Kmart has been my first real job, and this interview made me feel slightly nervous but I was very assured I'd get this job. After the interview, the HR manager tells me that I am hired and that they can't wait to have me in their 4295 team.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unexpected question in the interview was when the lost prevention manager asked "If a family member tried to steal something and you caught them, would you tell the manager?"
      It was unexpected to me because I wouldn't think there will be cases like that, but I answered "Yes, I would tell a manager."

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I filled out the form online. I must have aced the personality exam because it prompted me to set up an interview right there! The first interview was pretty basic. They wanted to know what my customer service and sales experience was like. The second one was with the store manager and focused more situation-oriented. After that, they offered me a job and we did the paperwork tango.

    Interview Questions
    • "tell me of a time when you worked with a difficult coworker." It didn't get more complex than that.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Kmart in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online on a Tuesday night and got a call the very next morning. We scheduled an interview for the afternoon and I got ready to go. Wear dress-casual clothing to all your interviews. You cannot over dress. I didn't bring a resume or cover letter because I had no experience but it is still advised to bring one with you. I walked in and talked with the human resources lady. She was polite and inviting. She asked me some cookie cutter questions such as past situations with angry customers, dealing with stressful situations and past skills and experiences. She reviewed the answers to see if I was worth the managers time. Afterwards she called in the manager. When he came in he went more in depth about what I want to do at Kmart and what I have to offer to the store. He explained that every job has more to do than what the title states and that you must be a strong multi-tasker. Do not lie however because they have ways of knowing. When he asked what I wanted to do, I told him that I wanted to work with electronics and he then proceeded to ask if I had an Ipad/Iphone/android. Once I said android he asked if it used ice cream, but mine used gingerbread. If you ask for a certain position be ready to prove that you qualify. Overall it was an easy and somewhat laid back interview.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kmart in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    My friend called me one day and asked if I wanted to work at Kmart with him (he is a current employee). I said yes, and he told me to put in an app online. I put in an app online and at the end of the app it told me to set up an interview date/time. I did, and showed up at that date/time for the interview and was walked to the HR office by a store associate. I met with the HR lead, and she said "Your Bill's friend right?" I said "yes". She told me they can only offer minimum wage. I was hired on the spot. That easy.
