    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was laid back and very enjoyable. Very nice people. Supervisor was kind and asked a lot of questions about me as a person rather than the basic ABC interview questions. Felt like they really got to know me for the better.

    Merchandising and Pricing Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with a supervisor who then had me interview with one of the dept managers. I was upset because I was coming in for a merchandising & pricing associate position but when I actually got there they told me it was just a regular sales floor position. When I had my 2nd interview after speaking with a supervisor -same day - she wanted me to work in shoes. I said no thanks so she gave me the women's department. Should have known from then that this was a job going downhill quick.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Sears in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very Very Bad.I got the interview scheduled through one of the employers: Wireclass. Initial round, a generic round for about 45 mins. They said they would give the feedback in 3-4 business days but took a month. Second round was totally crap. The interviewer did not know what was he interviewing for? He never introduced himself. It was supposed to be a skype round, but they shifted to normal phone round. Reason by the interviewer was that the weather is very bad and internet is not working in their office. HUH! Sears with no internet due to bad weather! That person's English was so bad that i never could understand any of his questions. So sorry to say that such type of incapable people are surviving in company like sears with hiring decisions. They would never hire someone smart. Shame on SEARS!
