    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Kmart in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I did their application online, it was pretty long-winded so I was glad that they called me for an interview a couple days later. I was interviewed first by the HR manager who discussed my availability, pay, how the Sears Holdings website worked, etc. Then I was interviewed by another manager who asked me some "Name a time when..." questions. They hired me on the spot. There were signs about drug testing in the office but I was never drug tested for some reason.

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time when a customer was angry and how did you handle it? I never had any retail experience at that point so I just gave an example of a group project in college when my partner was upset about something that had happened with the project.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Not really, I was pretty open to everything they threw at me. I was available MWF and weekends, which was good enough for the part time hours.

    The interview was quick and painless. The questions were pretty standard and basic. Very corporate interview and I was in and out in under 20 minutes. I believe other candidates were scheduled after me and they were trying to interview as many people as possible.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Kmart in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Mandatory application must be completed online with a multitude of "ridiculous" questions that, in my opinion, do nothing to validate the worth or work ethics of an individual. After a lot of time, I was called several days later to come in and meet HR. I was hired immediately.

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficult question. There were "stupid" questions during the online application. But the face-to-face meeting was quick and direct.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiations. I was offered job with no options.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Don't remember how long it took, but it couldn't have been too long to hear back from them. Called in for an interview. Answered basic questions about customer service, attendance, etc. Nothing unexpected. Just normal interview questions. After hiring, told to watch hours of training videos, which were on VHS.

    The first Human Resources Manager was awesome. This was over 9 years ago so there's no way I would remember. She hired me on the spot after I told her I had 7 years of retail experience and had a 2 year college degree. I worked in 4 different departments and enjoyed it almost until the end.
