    Store Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Kmart (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    phone interview with recruiter, then set up to interview with District Manager. Took about a month to get offer and it was not anything like what had been discussed in both interviews. The training was a joke, You are trained immediately to be able to do the employees work so the store can use you because payroll is so tight they don't have any help. You don't get to learn a lot about your job in being a manager.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my background, situational type questions, relocation questions. Typical questions, nothing difficult. Asked me the salary range I was expecting and stated the salary range to me which matched, when offered the job the salary was much less and not in the range at all.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Many Managers are leaving the company so you would most likely be able to be hired easily, however I would not recommend this company to anyone. I had no choice but to accept the position and that's the only reason to accept a position with this company.

About 270 Kmart stores sell home appliances (including Sears' Kenmore brand) and some 980 locations house in-store pharmacies. Poor sales have forced its parent, Sears Holdings Corp., to close 100 to 120 Kmart and ... More
