    Interview

    I applied online, and I was called in for an interview 2 days after. The interview was fairly easy and I was hired on the spot. A drug test is required before fully being on board. Orientation was the day after they received my results for the drug test. The process was very smooth and faster than I thought it would be.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kmart.

    Interview

    Two online qualification examinations are required before getting an interview appointment. The total invested time online prior to getting an interview time is about two hours. Very specific browsers and PC only access is required. Once in the interview, after waiting, standing up, for nearly 30 minutes past my scheduled interview time, the HR interviewer (one person) spent less than two minutes interviewing me and apologized for being rude because she had a "problem employee" she was dealing with and did not have any time but wanted to get the interview done as quickly as possible. Unbelievably rude, unprofessional, and disrespectful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kmart (Allentown, PA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    My interview didn't last too long and I got hired on the spot as long as I passed my drug test/background check. My interview was with the store manager because they didn't have a Hiring Manager at the moment. We went to the back office, spoke about what would be required, the pay, and when/where to schedule my drug test and that they'd get back to me once my background check cleared.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Kmart (West Babylon, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    After I applied online, I called the store. They then redirected me to the hiring manager, who set up an interview date with me. I came in on the day of the interview, dressed nicely, which seemed to have little to no effect on the woman interviewing me. She asked me very few questions, and described to me the types of tasks I would be responsible for. After the interview, she told me I had the job (which you most likely will, Kmart will hire anyone who applies as long as you call to tell them you applied online), and that I would need to take a quick drug test before I had my orientation. Overall it was a very simple process.
