    Interview Details

    The Store Manager made it really easy and less stressful on me. He obviously knew I was nervous and he started with small talk as he looked over the application. It really mellowed me out before the hard hitting questions.

    Application Details

    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.
