    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Kmart (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Super easy. I filled out an application online, and got a call back to set up an interview a few days later. The manager asked a few questions about myself and my availability, and because I was 16 at the time, the manager concluded the interview with "well you gotta start somewhere and we'll be happy to start you here!" It seemed a little rushed, but it was the beginning of the holiday season and they really needed associates. Overall, it was a really easy and laid back interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Kmart.

    Interview

    I put in an application on the Sears website. Got a call maybe a week later asking if I wanted to do an interview and for me to bring my social security card and ID. A few questions into the interview the manager let me know they were looking for someone to close which was upsetting since that was not stated on the website or over the phone. I could not do late night hours at that location and I would have never put in an application if I had known prior.

    During the interview the manager was nice. Got an offer via email.
