    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Saint Cloud, MN

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Sears in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was short and to the point. Questions ranged from "Why do you want to work here?" to "How would you sell a extended warranty?". Was offered the position but did not hear back from them regarding orientation for about a week or so.

    Interview Questions
    • I could see someone without sales experience being thrown for a loop with the extended warranty question. Do some research on Sears and you should be fine.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Schedule was 3 to 4 weekends per month. I understand why they had this requirement, but it did not fit my schedule.

    Merchandising Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Saint Cloud, MN
    Anonymous Employee in Saint Cloud, MN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Sears in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    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.
