Cashier Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

Application Details

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

Interview Details

Got there a half an hour early to give the store a look at. Went into the office and waited 10 minutes while three people did a computer exam for new hires. Got seen and ask four simple basic questions, nothing tooth picking. Then she told me that I had to be seen by the store manager which he asked about my schedules and was I going to be on time. I told him yes and then I was hired.They do drug testing as we'll so keep that in mind in u trying to go to a sears corporation.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview today. It was very quick. I was in and out of there in less then 10 minutes. The woman who interviewed me was very friendly and polite. She kept stopping and asking me if I had any questions about the job. I thought that was very good. I loved that I was hired right on the spot too. Its not like other jobs where you have to wait and be called to see if you got the job. They emailed me all my stuff right away too. So the application and interview process takes less than a week. Which is also a bonus.

    Interview Details

    Great interview! I wasn't nervous because i had an interview with walmart earlier that day and I was super nervous but with the Kmart HR it was natural. She only asked me like 3 or 4 questions and the rest was mainly us having casual conversations related to the job and the company. She hired me on the spot.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kmart in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, emailed the link to virtual simulation as part of the application process.

    There is a simulation test that requires access to speakers. Simulation includes photos of 'customers' in a simulated work environment. Questions posed are multiple-choice, some questions of which do not have answers that match up quite right in the way they're worded. Overall, simulation is self-explanatory and even if you provide a wrong answer, you'll be able to select another answer.

    Interview process was easier than easy - scheduled the first interview, was asked typical interview questions (no hard ones, incidentally), and once we'd finished I was asked if I could stay for a second interview. Second interview was even shorter than the first, more easy questions (couple of repeats), and then I was offered a higher position than the one I'd been interviewing for.

    Interview Questions
    • Interview questions were completely typical for interviews - there really were no difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question
