Very Difficult Interview

Cashier Interview

Cashier

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Kmart.

Interview Details – Human Resource Manager had no idea what to ask me so she was going off a piece of paper. The interview questions were ridiculous and very difficult to answer. I felt I was interviewing for an Executive position or something. Also, the training was horrible. I was with one young girl who could have cared less if I learned anything from her. I also had a guy train me my second day who was more interested in sharing his personal life with me than teaching me what I needed to learn. I quit on my third day because I felt the job was a joke.

Interview Question – 1. Tell me about a time where you set a goal for yourself. How did you meet that goal? At what time did you tell yourself you had done enough and why?

2. Tell me about yourself.

3. Tell me about a time where you had to work as a team. What was your role?

Plus a lot of other questions that were very difficult to answer. I cannot even remember them. This was by far the worst interviewing experience I have ever endured.
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Job offer but the pay was set at minimum wage. The pay was terrible considering I have tons of experience.

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Kmart in July 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, and was called for an interview a few weeks later. Interview was the easiest I've had, and I thought it went well. Was called for a second interview with the store manager, and he did most of the talking. Just explained job duties and such. After that, I submitted info for a background check. However, for some reason, I got an email a few days later saying they were no longer interested. I find that strange, because there's absolutely nothing bad that could have been uncovered in a background check. Not even traffic violations. Overall, the interview was simple.

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Kmart in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online. Got called very soon, within a week. Came in for an interview. Was interviewed by 3 people. Took approximately 1.5 hours. Basically, emphasize your passion about providing excellent customer service. Offered the job on the spot and asked for some time to think about it. They pay $8 an hour for part time up to 25 hours. That wasn't going to work for me, so I declined the job offer.

Interview Question – What's 50% of a dollar? That was really weird. The questions weren't too hard. Just long.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – I couldn't do $8 for up to 25hrs. I simply needed more for the cost of gas and my college tuition (300/m). Besides, the manager said that the cashiers cringe when she comes up. And "people who come in here aren't very nice." Great, right? LOL
