    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greensboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kmart (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    phone interview with recruiter, then set up to interview with District Manager. Took about a month to get offer and it was not anything like what had been discussed in both interviews. The training was a joke, You are trained immediately to be able to do the employees work so the store can use you because payroll is so tight they don't have any help. You don't get to learn a lot about your job in being a manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my background, situational type questions, relocation questions. Typical questions, nothing difficult. Asked me the salary range I was expecting and stated the salary range to me which matched, when offered the job the salary was much less and not in the range at all.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Many Managers are leaving the company so you would most likely be able to be hired easily, however I would not recommend this company to anyone. I had no choice but to accept the position and that's the only reason to accept a position with this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Kmart.

    Interview

    It was a basic interview process. They called to schedule an interview. Once there, you meet with the hiring HR person. The process was only about 5 personality questions. Then you meet the store manager and they ask you an additional 5 questions. You only need to wear a nice shirt and jeans. They aren't expecting much. Remember, don't overdo your outfit or any possibly jewelry. They are looking for a hard worker that will be beneficial in all departments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Kmart.

    Interview

    I put in an application on the Sears website. Got a call maybe a week later asking if I wanted to do an interview and for me to bring my social security card and ID. A few questions into the interview the manager let me know they were looking for someone to close which was upsetting since that was not stated on the website or over the phone. I could not do late night hours at that location and I would have never put in an application if I had known prior. During the interview the manager was nice. Got an offer via email.
