There were 2 interviews,I had to call in many times previously to make sure they noticed me. Both interviews were really easy due to the fact that they were low on employees, so they really just need more people

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Sears in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call within about a week to come in for an interview the next day. I completed a job simulation on the computer the night before. It wasn't super hard. The guy that interviewed me was very nice. He described the position to me, asked if I would be okay offering credit cards to customers, and we briefly went over my work history. I spent a lot of time wondering when the actual interview would start. When it did, he asked a total of 2 questions and then offered me the job. The entire meeting took about 20 minutes. Overall, a wonderful experience.

    Interview Details

    Took me in a room in the back the size of an interrogation room. Asked me some questions then had me take this little quiz while she walked away and laughed and talked with someone. I had been done 15 mins before she came back in there. She then told me to come with her and she said she wanted me to go up to this man and try to get him to sign up for the shop your way rewards program after he politely declined, he said I did a great job and then I found out he was actually the assistant manager. She then had him talk to me for awhile then she came back in and told me that I had the job and took me in the office to take an assessment quiz and create my account. I spent a whole week doing assessments and computer training,

    I applied online about 4 or 5 hours later I got a phone call from the HR manager to come in for an interview the next day. I went in for the interview. I had to wait for a few minutes because there was an issue with a customer. He took me in sat me down and just asked the regular questions. And we kinda just chatted. He told me what the job entailed asked me if I was ok pushing credit. All of which I was used to I had worked at Sears before so it was nothing new. After the interview concluded he said did I have more time to sit and talk with the operations manager I did have time however the manager did not have the time. He said to come in the next day for the interview and to bring my drivers license and SS card because he felt I was going to get a job offer right then. So I went in the next day and the operations manager was a little more of a business interview and it lasted longer. She said she was going to talk to the HR manager she left for no longer than 2 minutes came back and said that they were offering me the job. I filled out all the paperwork right there and that afternoon they called and set me up for orientation.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Sears in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The cashier lead would have a paper in front of them and read questions off of there. It feels kind of halt hearted. Because they don't ask too much personal questions. It's many yes or no questions. But one really good thing about it, is that they don't feel like you fit in one place they'll try to contact the other managers to see where you would fit. Especially if they really like you.

    • All the time I think the question "Why we should hire you?" Is a difficult question. It makes me think of what the other competition would say. Almost every interview I had always have the question.   View Answer

    They first make you take an hour and a half quiz. It is very repetitive. Based on the results of the quiz, you are either prompted to choose a time for an interview or they just say "thank you, we will contact you if you want to be interviewed." If you aren't prompted to choose a time, you won't get the interview. Then you get interviewed, and they ask you almost nothing.

    I applied online and got a call about a few days later. The first interview was with a manager and went pretty quick. I didn't think I got the job, but I was called back later for a second interview. During the second interview, there was a group of 10 applicants being interviewed by the entire team of managers, and they also gave us a tour of the store. It took about an hour, and after it finished, everyone was offered a job
