    Interview Details

    Best way is to know someone already working in the company. Easy interview. Part time position so does not require any advance degrees or even a high school diploma. The level of training fluctuates, it depends on the person training you. Be sure you're ready to work and learn to be a self motivated person.

    First I spoke with the HR and she asked me questions about past experiences dealing with customers. I passed that portion of the interview and she brought in the person that would be my supervisor. I got similar questions from her and she asked why I wanted to be in fashions. They hired me on the spot.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a seasonal position at Kmart and Sears. I received a phone call from the Regional Manager a day or two later about setting up an interview. She asked me if I could interview that day or the next day. I was told to go to the store location at the interview time and ask for the manager. When I arrived for the interview, I ended up meeting with the Softlines Manager. He was very nice and he asked me about four of five questions. He offered me the job after the interview.

    Interview Details

    The interview was barely an interview. It seemed like I had the job before they even talked to me. We went over the hours I could work. There were no 'what if' questions. I feel like they just needed bodies in the door.

    Front End Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Kmart.

    Interview Details

    Two online qualification examinations are required before getting an interview appointment. The total invested time online prior to getting an interview time is about two hours. Very specific browsers and PC only access is required. Once in the interview, after waiting, standing up, for nearly 30 minutes past my scheduled interview time, the HR interviewer (one person) spent less than two minutes interviewing me and apologized for being rude because she had a "problem employee" she was dealing with and did not have any time but wanted to get the interview done as quickly as possible. Unbelievably rude, unprofessional, and disrespectful.
