    Pros

    Manangers are not too hard on you, they have normal expectations for you while you are working for them. The company is decent to work for.

    Cons

    sliding schedule, you never know exactly what the next week will be like, you are moved around constantly whenever there is someone missing they expect you to be available.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    The interview process went through 3 rounds. First round with general manager, second round with cashier lead and third round with the store operations manager. They asked generic interview questions, nothing unexpected and I really liked how they took interest in my background and past experiences. I connected well with one of them because she shared the same alma matter. I came back for the 2nd and 3rd interviews the next day and got hired on the spot.
