I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Kmart.

Interview Details

The interview was barely an interview. It seemed like I had the job before they even talked to me. We went over the hours I could work. There were no 'what if' questions. I feel like they just needed bodies in the door.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kmart in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very straight forward and easy. She began by just asking me about my availability and then told me to tell her about myself. She then told me the only way I would get hired is if I work on Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve so I agreed. I was then told I would receive an email that I was being offered a position in the next 24 hours.

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got a call to come in for an interview about a week later. I came to the interview and talked to the HR. She was very nice, laid back, and asked me a minimal amount of questions cause this would be my first job. She asked about clubs I was in in high school and what I liked to do on my free time. She then said she really liked me and wanted me to come in for a second interview a few days later. I came in for the second interview and it was the front end cashier manager. She was also very nice and laid back and asked me more behavioral questions and things I had learned from my experience. She also asked me if I had to be a car what car would I be and why. She really liked my answer and we bonded a lot. She then went and talked to the HR in the hall. The HR came back in and said they both loved me and would love for me to come back a third time to talk to the store manager. I was ecstatic. They were so kind. So I came back about 5 days later and talked to the store manager. And WOW they are the nicest company I've come across thus far. The manager said this interview was more a stamp of approval and getting to know my personality. We talked for probably 2 hours. We bonded and had great conversation. He kept saying how impressed he was with my resume and what I've done and that I'm exactly what Kmart is looking for. It was so refreshing and nice. Midway through the interview he said he would put my mind at ease and that he was going to hire me. I was so happy. He then told me more about the job and what will be expected of me. I was so happy and impressed with how nicely they all went about the hiring process. I then went back with the HR where she scheduled my drug screening and background check. I took the drug screening, waited 2 days and she called saying I had gotten an email to start the onboard process (signing documents,etc) she said she'd call in about a week in a half to come in. I'm so happy and thrilled I will get to work for such nice, genuine people!! :-)

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Kmart.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, got a call the next day for a interview. Sat in the break room for about 10 minutes until the manager called me into her office for the interview. At first she asked questions like why I wanted to work at Kmart then after that she wanted to talk about my previous work experiences, how I dealt with customers in different situations, interview went on for about 5 minutes then the manager told me to wait in the break room and waited another 5 or so minutes just so she could tell me that they decided not to hire me and that I needed more experience. The problem with that is that I had more experiences than everyone that applied there that day. Everyone else looked like they was 16, I'm 24 and was a manager in my last job until the store went out of business.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Kmart in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got called a phone call the day after I applied online to come in for an interview, she told me to go to the service desk and let them know I was there. After waiting at the service desk for about 10 minutes they called me back to her office and she went over my basic information. She asked my availability and about my experience. Most of the questions were about customer service, retail experience and any problems I had to solve. I was also asked a few similar questions by one of the shift supervisors. She told me she would call me back the next week, and I got a call from her 4 days after the interview and offered my the job. I accepted and now have completed most of my pre-hire paperwork including I9 forms, direct deposit, and others. Overall a great experience!
