    I applied in-person – interviewed at Kmart.

    Interview Details

    My interview was a breeze because I wanted a job, not needed one. The HR at the time was amazing and adhered to the open door policy. But like many great associates that fight for what's right, she was let go, just like me. Kmart upper management is extremely shady.

    I applied online – interviewed at Kmart in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I was scheduled quickly for an interview after I confirmed my interest. Received the job offer before I made it home afterwards. After completing my drug screen and background check, I shortly received the new hire forms which were submitted electronically. Now I am just waiting to hear about when I start. Pretty easy and painless.

    I applied online, and I was called in for an interview 2 days after. The interview was fairly easy and I was hired on the spot. A drug test is required before fully being on board. Orientation was the day after they received my results for the drug test. The process was very smooth and faster than I thought it would be.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Kmart.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a few positions/locations and was called by hiring personnel for a phone interview involving simple behavioral questions; she was basically looking for someone who could hold a conversation (her words). She forwarded my resume/information to a hiring manager with whom I had another interview. This interview was long (almost 2 hours) but mostly because we were chatting. Only three behavioral questions were asked this time, which were related to accountability or handling difficult customers/colleagues. I was offered the job on the spot.
