    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kmart.

    Interview

    Passed two interviews, then came in for the signing of the contract. They were friendly, made me feel at home, and asked at what department I wanted to work. I wanted something related to food and they had a cafeteria, so I went for that.

    Interview Questions

    • They really didn't ask much since they were pretty content with my study abroad program and college degree/GPA. They wanted someone with higher education and calm demeanor to treat customers well.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kmart.

    Interview

    I got group interviewed with a bunch of high school kids and we all got asked the same question and we would all have to give an answer even if you just said "same thing" they were alright with that. HR more put off an "I want to be your friend" vibe instead of an "I'm your boss vibe."

I told her that I was open and I also told her I can work in any departments as well, so kept saying that I got the job. I got multiple emails about my job offer. Now I'm just waiting on my new hire emails. So everything went fine
