    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    The interview process went through 3 rounds. First round with general manager, second round with cashier lead and third round with the store operations manager. They asked generic interview questions, nothing unexpected and I really liked how they took interest in my background and past experiences. I connected well with one of them because she shared the same alma matter. I came back for the 2nd and 3rd interviews the next day and got hired on the spot.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call about a week later. Interview process took about 30 minutes. There are two interviews. If you make it past the first one, then you will probably get the job. Its very important to arrive on time and dress professional. They love seeing that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    Like all jobs at Sears, everything is submitted online through their ATS system. No one-on-one meetings, this was all done over the phone and I think there was a video interview as well. Standard questions. It seemed as if the first couple rounds were being done from off-shore. Maybe they outsource this function. I was hired and then didn't hear anything from the company regarding where I would be working and what time or anything else until the Friday before I was to start.

    There is an "HR Boot Camp" (5-days) for all new HR staff. This is held in IL.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sears (Denver, CO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and filled out an online assessment. Contacted the next day to schedule a phone interview for the following morning. The recruiter was late for the scheduled interview time, called her and left a v mail, and never bothered to call me back. Was sent an automated email saying they filled the position. Blatantly rude VERY unprofessional. I was offered the same position for a different location and will be seriously rethinking accepting ANY offer from Sears after this experience.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call that night. My interview was the next day at 11. I was actually interviewed at 11:30. This is normal in a lot of situations. The interview was relaxed and quite casual, and the questions were pretty much expected. Questions about how to calm down an angry customer, or what changes to make so a product sells that otherwise was not selling well, etc. I was a little put off by the interviewer's examples of selling. They came off aggressive, but I understood why, since sears isn't in the best shape. I could tell sears was big on availability, so make sure to say your schedule is open and you can work 24/7. I haven't received word back on a second interview, so we will have to say. All in all, just relax.
