Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Tucson, AZ).

Interview

The manager was nice. Thorough in his questioning. Didn't seem to care about the education just wanted it on the resume. Kind of ignored all the trading I've had in college.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Moorestown, NJ).

    Interview

    filled out electronic application, called into GM's office, asked if I liked gadgets, assigned to electronics. Interview took 5 minutes. I was then advised that (by the GM) I would be working with a very difficult person, which I came to realize this was an understatement...my co-worker would lie, STEAL, reverse sales and rewrite for himself and the GM would NOT take any action explaining my co-worker was black and it would look bad to fire him.

    Interview Questions

    • Do I like gadgets, that was the only real interview question asked.   1 Answer

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sears in July 2015.

    Interview

    This was for the outlet section of sears. Went through an interview process for over a month with countless interviews finally had a interview with the regional vice president who told me I didn't have enough leadership experience even though every job I have had has had multiple leadership roles and I was a team leader in the store that I applied to. My advice is don't try and get a good job with this company unless your kissing the rvps butt or are related to him in someway

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    Interview consisted of two interviews. First was a face to face interview with the Store Manager; the second was an hour long phone interview with the District Manager. Interviews felt very good cop/bad cop. First one built me up, pumped me up and brought out the confidence. Second one felt like the inquisition where everything felt like the wrong thing to say.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you plan on managing a team of hourly retail associates AND commission based associates?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I accepted the first offer that was given. I didn't want to try my hand at negotiating given that when we discussed pay initially, I had thrown out a number that was 10% higher than what I was looking for, and they immediatly matched it. Think about how much you are looking for, what you are worth, and tack on another 10%.
