    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sears (Bloomington, MN) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I applied online for a Merchandising Associate position. The application included a personality/skills/situational test which included an oddly high number of questions about handling an injury on the job. A day or two later, I was called to set up for an interview. When I arrived, everybody seemed surprised that I was there to be interviewed. A second person showed up to be interviewed, and nobody seemed to know that he was coming either. Eventually, the only person who seemed to know about the interviews showed up to conduct them. I was interviewed for a Cashier job, which wasn't what I applied for. The interview took 3-5 minutes and I was asked to wait outside to be interviewed by another manager. Eventually, the other manager interviewed me as well, again taking 3-5 minutes. Overall, I was there for about 40 minutes, with 30-34 of those minutes spent waiting. I was told that I would get a call back if I got the job, but never got a call.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Saint Cloud, MN) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I completed an online job application followed by a survey which took about 15-20 min. to complete. After completing the survey the website offered me a date/time to come in for an interview and I accepted. They then emailed a reminder of the date/time of scheduled interview. When I came in for the interview no one had any knowledge of my scheduled interview so I had to wait 20 min. past the time scheduled only to be rushed through the interview and told someone would call me back and no one ever did.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears in June 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online and heard back the next day to set up an interview. The interview was great but the pay and hours were very low for my experience. I interviewed with a manager and then the HR representative. I noticed a lot of people interviewing that day. I was offered the job on the spot pending a background check and drug test.

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was extremely low and job description was unclear. I got several different explanations of what the job entailed and I wasn't sure what I would walk into.
