    Cashier/Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sears in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. After a week, I had a call to schedule an interview for the following day. I arrived 5 minutes earlier. I went to the Human Resource office, but its door was locked and no one opened the door to answer me. I saw a couple waiting for an interview, so I waited there. Then one of the employees who was passing by asked me if she could help, then she said I should wait and the person I had interview with is gonna be with me soon. I waited for one hour and a half. The couple who were there before me got disappointed and left. Finally he showed up. He was a very nice and friendly man. He appologized for the delay. He went through the interview questions and asked about my schedule. It took maybe around 20 minutes. He said it's gonna be hard for me to go to school 4 days a week and work 3 days a week and I said it's not hard for me. After a little chatting he asked me if I had any questions, so I asked how many hours is a part time job there? he answerd 6 to 25 hours per week. At the end he didn't say if they are gonna call or send an email to inform me of the result or not.

    I applied online – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    It was a very simple and easy interview. I applied online and about a week later I got a call for an interview the next day. It was just me and another older woman waiting for an interview and I went first. The interview was at most 20 minutes and she asked the usual questions you hear for a retail job. She said I would hear back in a few days and I got an email saying I didn't get the job but overall an easy interview!
