Interview Details

They were really nice and worked to help me as it was my first job and I was still in high school. The store manager even gave me tips for future interviews before hiring me for the holiday season.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Sears in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    They work with you on dates to come in for each interview. It is a three step process, where you would speak to the human resources manager, then the ASM of the department you are applying for, and last the store's general manager. The most difficult person to be interviewed by is the ASM, because they are going to be more critical of how you answer questions according to how you would work in that specific department. The only part I wasn't quite happy with was that they make you wait several hours in the waiting room before they actually start the interviewing process, because they plan poorly for each set time on the interviewees. They like it when you are super energetic about the job, and you get extra brownie points if you say you are a Sears loyalty customer as well.

    Reasons for Declining

    They offered to put me in mattresses as well, but I declined because I needed the work experience in electronics. Also, they will try to push you towards joining other departments that are in desperate need of associates.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Sears in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submit application online, pass unicru personality test by either strongly agreeing or strongly disagreeing, and make sure each answer reflects that you are responsible, do not take risks, view everyone else and the world in a cheerful way. Then you take a video assessment with customer interactions. Make sure you always select the "let's look online together" answer when showing a customer a product. At the interview, just appear to be relaxed, articulate, and pretend you don't intend on having any life outside of work and that you will live, eat, and breathe sears. Just stroke the interviewing manager, tell them what they want to hear, and smile while you do it.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sears in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a breeze. I've heard very bad reviews about many of the Sears stores throughout the country, however my store is an exception. The management was very friendly...all the other associates pitched in advice, and the Human Resources was definitely not what I was expecting (A ruthless person in a Darth Vader costume).

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sears in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    After you submit an application, the Human Resource rep will contact you and ask you to come in for an one on one interview. While during the interview they ask you about how your work ethics are and i was asked on big question. "Who is the most important person in the store, when trying to get customers to return?" The answer is Cashier. They are the last person customers talk to and they make the relationship between the company and the consumer. Then it is just paper work if they decide to hire you and maybe a drug test.
