    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sears in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. At the end you get to schedule an interview time. The interview were basic questions that you'll find in every interview. What I mean by that is I didn't feel like there were trick questions or they were trying to trick me. Made a point to emphasize selling credit to customers as one of the main jobs.

    I applied online – interviewed at Sears in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had a two-part interview and they both asked a lot of specific questions and examples are listed below. There was over 35 questions that was almost all experience related and majority had very difficult words in them. For example, "impenetrable", so make sure you're good at vocabulary or they will surely make a fool of you. Other than that, it went well.

    Interview Questions
    • Have you ever had a difficult situation at school or work? If so, how did you deal with it?   Answer Question
    • Have you ever had to sell something? If so, were you successful?   Answer Question
    • Have you ever done something wrong and admitted your error?   Answer Question
    • When was the last time you had great customer service? Why would you consider that great customer service?   Answer Question
    • What are your expectations for your manager?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They are not willing to negotiate. $7.93 is the only pay they will give and if you want another position then you can start over from square one.

    Interview Details

    Applied online at Sears after the application there is an assessment test. It is very easy to apply online rather than going to the store. After about one week or so they contacted my through phone call. The interview was a few days after. At the interview it was a simple interview. The interviewer was very nice, but it was unorganized. They did not know I was coming in for an interview. Other than that it was a regular interview. It took about ten minuets and there were no other interviewee.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sears in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially started the hiring process by walking in to an open interview job fair. I had a quick interview, I was told about sears programs and asked one question. I was offered a second interview right away. The second interview was a group session we were asked about 5-7 questions. The session was about 30-40 minutes. I was hired on the spot. However, I was offered a different position than what I applied for but I'm still happy with my offer as a merchandiser. To give a quick time frame: First Interview "Friday", Second Interview "Tuesday" = Hired. Drug Testing & Orientation Next, we're scheduled for orientation based on how quickly we finish our paperwork.
