Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sears in July 2013.

Interview Details

Very friendly HR team. 2 managers interviewed me on the same day. Was offered position on the spot. If you can impress them that that is. Originally applied for merchandising associate but the HR manager suggested me that I was more qualified and should take the position of sales as it was more rewarding and would receive commission plus base.

    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
