Cashier
Dearborn, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sears in April 2014.

Interview Details – First interview went well. Mostly basic questions.
Second interview was about selling and assisting other customers. Then they explain to you the importance of selling the sears credit card. Seriously?
Never received a call back, even after recalling them. Not a great employment process.

Interview Question – Sell me this sears card...   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Hermitage, PA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sears.

Interview Details – Applied online, easy questionnaire. Was contacted 3 days after finishing application and set up interview time. Arrived at store for an interview. Store manager who was supposed to interview me was 'in a meeting' during the time we had agreed on, so I was interviewed by the lead cashier. She didn't seem to really know what she was doing - all of her interview questions came out of a packet they use to guide their interviews. No one apparently reviewed my application because all the questions they asked were answered in my application. Had a second interview that same day with the store manager after his meeting. Seemed very cold and standoffish. Kept pressuring me to accept a different job as a sales associate in the tools department (where I know nothing about) instead of the cashier position I applied for. When I asked questions after the interview, he showed himself to not be very knowledgeable about his own store (when will I start, how long is training, etc).

Interview Question – Questions were not difficult - the majority were "describe a time when you..." (offered excellent customer service, had to work as a team, etc.)   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – They were unorganized and not very knowledgeable about their own store. Also wanted me to push credit card apps, reward programs, etc. on customers and I am not pushy enough for them.

Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted the next day to schedule interview. Had 2 interviews and was offered the job on the spot during the second.

However the interviews only lasted about 10 minutes each.

Interview Question – "Tell me about a time you exceeded expectations and how you knew that you had"   Answer Question

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Valencia, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Sears in October 2013.

Interview Details – It was a group interview. We were all seated in the training room and had to watch a video about being a cashier. They explained a few other things to us about the job. We introduced ourselves to the Cashier Lead and the Human Resources Manager. All they wanted to know was what our availability was and what were some of our past job experieces like. After an hour, we were all given a job offer. It was not as bad as I thought, considering this was my first job interview ever.

Negotiation Details – No negotiations. The pay is minimum wage so you can either take it or leave it.
