Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in February 2015.

Interview

I applied online to the campus career website and was accepted for an interview. The first round interview was on campus, with two half hour interviews with two different people. About two weeks after, I received an email requesting a second round interview on site. There, it was an all day interview process. We first arrived, had an interview, took a tour of the building, had another interview, asked questions to a panel of employees, had lunch with those employees, did a group activity, then ended with a recap. The HR employee called me an hour and a half after the interview to let me know I had an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online, I participated in a phone screen about a week later. I was immediately invited for an in-person interview, however it took more than a month for me to find out when this interview would actually occur. The in-person interview consisted of 3 half-hour sessions with 2-3 interviewers. The sessions were very easy-going and low stress, mainly talking about my experiences in college and my interests, which makes sense as this is typically an entry-level position that consists of an extensive training program. As promised, I received a decision a week after the in-person interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • If you had one item at the distribution center and had to decide between two stores where to send it to, how would you decide?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I received a very fair offer and did not negotiate. For this entry-level position, I believe negotiation is not an option.
