    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sears in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Talked with HR manager for a while and answered some questions about myself and my experience in the workplace. Typical questions about your strengths, weaknesses, and customer service interactions. I was then interviewed by the Asst store manager and after getting to know me a little better she offered me a job. Both were very nice, easily approachable, and very respectful. Don't wear a suit to one of these interviews though, you will be overdressed for sure. Slacks and a button shirt with tie will work just fine. Overall, it seemed like a good place to work and I got a good vibe from the people in management.

    It was for a part-time position, and I was under the impression it was full-time. I explained this to the Asst Store Manager the next day, and she encouraged me to apply for management positions in her store and another nearby. I guess she really liked me!

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sears in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Standard hiring and interview process: submit resume, get told to fill out application anyway. Interview directly with HR (with store tour). You will constantly be informed that this is an old company, with staunch values - but they did begin limited diversity training (around ethnicity, primarily) shortly after I left. Oral interview, and that was it. I was hired.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions - everyone asks why this company would be a good fit.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. I was simply informed of my commission structure and base rate.
