    Interview Details

    I didn't wait long at all. The HR later interviewed me first, just a few questions. Mainly about my experience and availability. Then the co-manager asked me an interview question and explained some things about the cashier. Next the manager asked me more interview questions, nothing to bad. Like where do I see myself best. And what I was most proud of. He explained more to me about the importance of the cashier. After he left he brought the HR lady back and she offered me the job.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and two weeks later received an email from the head of HR of a Kmart near me for an interview. We scheduled an appointment for two days later. She asked me several situational questions and expected questioned like, "Why Kmart?" and "How does your previous experience relate?" My time schedule didn't match what they were looking for, but she said if I passed this round, I would get another email for a second interview in a couple days.

    Interview Details

    I saw that my local Kmart was hiring and I decided to apply online. About a week later I received a call for an interview. She asked me many questions, probably about 25 minutes were just her asking me questions. She asked me when I could start working while showing me where everything was. I thought I had the job. I did not get a call back.

    Interview Questions
    • Is there a certain day that you can't work because of a birthday, etc. Didn't understand why she asked me that, I thought it was very pointless.   Answer Question

    I applied online - interviewed at Kmart in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied 06/20/13 got a call later that evening from the HR to come in for an interview the next day at 11:00 A.M. went in, waited for about 5-10 mins. i didn't know i was going to be interviewed with another girl as well but since the HR forgot she booked us both at the same time we went in together just so it'd be easier. very quick and easy questions sometimes we would even go off subject and that made the whole interview even better and more comfortable. she explained about the company and after that told us that we'd be getting a e-mail by 4:00 P.M couple hours if we get the position. (couple hours later) .. it was 4 and i kept checking my e-mail constantly and nothing. when it hit 5 i had no hope.. until i checked again and BAM! i was so excited. this is my first retail job & even though they only pay min. wage which is $7.25 its a start for me to advance into other retail jobs later
