    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kmart (Bronx, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online through Indeed.com and was called back about a week later to come in the next day at 11:30 am. The HR manager was very nice and did not make me feel uncomfortable or intimidated at all, so it was a relaxing interview. She told me its going to be a very brief interview. Questions were your typical interview questions from any retail store. It was a 10 minute interview, and was pretty much hired on the spot. She told me she was going to forward the drug test conformation email to schedule a appointment, then after I pass she would call me for orientation which would be my first working day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Kmart (Huntington, NY) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for the job after seeing an ad on Indeed.com. Right after I submitted my application I received an email stating that my qualifications met the company's need and that I would be contacted soon. About five days later Patty from HR asked me to come in for an interview. During the interview I wasn't really asked much. Patty rambled for about thirty minutes about the company and told me about the overnight manager and she also told me not to expect a raise cause they haven't had one in three years. I sat there and smiled and nodded and she asked if I could come back in two days for orientation. i agreed and that was that. No questions and no drug test.
