    Kmart Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aguadilla, PR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Kmart (Aguadilla, PR).

    Interview

    It is a two part interview. The first one the "HR" followed a sequence of questions he had printed, if you pass, you continue to the second interview with a manager. The second interview was in order to deepen the same questions.

    The only inconvenience, at least for me, is that they wanted full availability for a part-time.

    Distribution Warehouse Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ontario, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kmart (Ontario, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online 4/30. Couple days later I got a call and completed a phone interview. The recruiter then set me up for "face to face" interview. Even though it's a warehouse job, I went dressed in slacks and a button down shirt. It ended up being a group of about 6 people and they were dressed from shorts to sweats. The guy "interviewing" was in a dirty tshirt and jeans. I'm not sure what purpose of this meeting was because he didn't ask not one question. I was only black guy in there. He spoke Spanish most of time. I was denied an offer, but I feel the process was biased and I did not get a chance esp when the face to face was more an information session. Why send someone to an info session? What was the purpose of that?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kmart in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call back 3-4 days later to come in for an interview later that week. I arrived ten minutes early and waited near the Service Desk for the HR Manager to meet with me. She led me into her office and asked me questions from a sheet of paper in front of her. I had prepared for the interview beforehand using Glassdoor, so I had an answer for every question she asked. Afterwards, she brought in the Assistant Manager, who asked me a few questions about my availability and work history. I was hired on the spot, and they said after the background check and paperwork went through, they would contact me with my schedule.
