    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    Interviewed by the manager first, and then the lead (kind of like a sub-manager). The manager asked pretty soft questions. I almost felt like I had the job before the interview even started. It wasn't until later did I realize that when an interview process is so easy, it's not necessarily a good thing (the company is desperate and will take anyone).

    Interview Questions

    • Run of the mill interview questions. It has been a couple years so I cannot remember specifics. I do however remember them asking about my education (I was going to start college later that year).   Answer Question

    It took me 4 days after I applied to get my interview. The interview was one on one and very easy. I arrived 15 minutes early and we started the interview early which was really nice. The interview was about 10 minutes long. They ask basic interview questions. The lady I interview with was really nice and made the interview really easy for me. She called me back hours after my interview to offer me a position as a back room associate.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sears in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was simple and straightfoward. I waited in HR and was called in by the store manager to his office. He literally read basic questions off a paper one by one and I answered them. The questions presented here on Glassdoor helped me prepare alot. Many of the questions listed by other users ended up in the actual interview. The interview concluded with a tour of the backroom.
