    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Sears (Duluth, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I filled application online and got a call to come in for an interview a few days later. I got harassed to come in for an interview ASAP and got there for a 10 minute interview in which I was questioned about my recent graduation. I was given a petty excuse that I wouldn't be able to get many hours. 1) The point of applying for a part-time job is fewer working hours. 2) If there is no work for people to do then cancel the interview and take down the job ad. Very disappointing.

    Average Interview

    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.

    Merchandising and Pricing Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    The interview process was great up until I was interviewed by the store manager. He was nice but a little pushy when it came to getting his way. I applied for merchandising but he coerced me into sales which I did not want to do, but I needed a job. I was NOT told what I would be paid or actually what I was hired in for when I was actually hired. But again I needed a job regardless.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I wasn't able to negotiate anything. I told the store manager, that I did not want to do commission sales but he insisted anyway. Luckily they stopped commission once i got there.
