Interviewed at Sears

Interview Details – 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.

Interview Question – There weren't any hard questions. They just asked if I was ok with asking people for credit applications several times.   Answer Question

I applied online and 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.

Interview Question – 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

Interview Details – 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.

It took about an hour, and after it finished, everyone was offered a job

Interview Question – Mostly questions like "Why did you pick Sears" and "what does customer service mean to you," but there was also a part where we had to try and sell them a pen to show your salesman skills   Answer Question
