Application

I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sears (Concord, NC) in June 2015.

Interview

People were very nice and cordial, made me envision myself working there. Everyone on staff seemed to have great chemistry as well. Both hiring managers were very nice and approachable. Also visitors to the store seem very friendly. Next, I was given a clear run down on policies and protocol. Overall I felt it would be a great place to land my first job.
