    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Had to go there 3 times. Each time I talked to a different person. First 2 managers from different floors then I talked to the store manager who told me I got the job. Everybody was very friendly and honest about what they expect you to do and what you will get out of it. Questions were normal interview questions.

    Interview Questions
    • For me the most difficult question is always the one: How did you resolve a problem creatively. But that's just a personal problem ;)   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty laid back. We talked more about our lives and just chatter than an interview. Really basic questions. They are really just looking to see if you are a people person and can hold a conversation. Don't stress about interviews here, and least not for sales associates.
