The final decision was left up to the store manager and I was hired on the spot. I have to get a drug test and bring in my social and I.d then I can start.

I interviewed at Kmart in June 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call a couple of days later. Very easy process. The HR rep will ask you questions about why Kmart and what you will bring to the table. You need to be detailed on what you can bring to the table. It's also good to make eye contact.

Interview Question – How will Kmart benefit from hiring you?   Answer Question

Front End Supervisor Interview

Front End Supervisor
Fort Wayne, IN

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Kmart in June 2014.

Interview Details – Well I applied online through their website, the application and test are very detailed and long you should allow at least 2.5 hours. I applied Friday morning they called me Friday afternoon to schedule an interview for Saturday morning. I was welcomed at the front desk an taken back to interview. The manager was very polite easy to talk to she explained the position well told me what it paid. we talked a bit about skills and goals I had while working in the company. I felt like it was already my employment family seriously. By Saturday night i had an email offering me the position as long as I pass my background /drug screen! I was elated I went Monday for my drug screen now I am waiting for my hiring email!

Negotiation Details – There really were not negotiation...I do regret this a bit I felt a bit of pressure not to ask for too much because I had been out of the work field for some time then I realized; My level of work-ethic and the fact that I have my bachelors degrees degree with a minor in psychology which would be awesome attributes to have in this position and my 3.2 Gpa could have gotten me at least a dollar more an hour. I Know it worth it and should have negotiated a little more but hey you live and learn now I will show them what I am worth!

Front End Cashier Interview

Front End Cashier
Randolph, NJ

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Kmart.

Interview Details – Literally it was the fastest process ever. I applied online then within like a week they called me and asked to come in a few days later in the morning. I did so and had a talk with the store manager. He was really nice and asked a few basic questions like "describe yourself, where do you go to school, whats your availability". Nothing hard at all. He talked about himself for most of the interview believe it or not. I barely said anything. He explained the routine of a cashier and then asked if i had any questions for him. It was like a 10 minute process with him talking for 8 minutes of it. It was chill and no problems were had.

Interview Question – As with any interview I always think the "describe yourself" question was the hardest. Cause you never know what they really wanna hear.   View Answer

Front End Cashier Interview

Front End Cashier
Wasco, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Kmart in October 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and got called for an interview within days. I was excited I dressed shirt, and tie for the interview arrived 5 till 9am and we two people went ahead of me in the interview. I had to wait till 10:45am for my interview we were in the break room and they were playing Shrek it was very mind numbing. It was a series of interviews first the HR which I thought I did okay on then the General Manager I simply had no cashier experience, and was not bilingual so I could tell I was not what they were looking for. For those who qualify I'm sure they would do fine in this work environment.

Interview Question – Very basic, what threw me off was having to wait an hour an a half then having two people ask you the same questions twice.   View Answer
