    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Aventura, FL).

    The interview process took over two hours. I didn't start my interview until about 30 minutes after the orignal time. I had two interviews, so I had to wait until the lead cashier was available and that took forever since they were under staffed.

    Director Level Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL).

    Interview

    Apologies in advance for my vague responses. I genuinely like the people I interviewed with on a personal level and do not want to embarrass them. The process was a series of back-to-back individual interviews. This was probably the oddest interview experience I've ever encountered. The interviewers had very little interest in discussing my skills, experience or accomplishments. None of the trendy behavioral interview questions were posed. Questions to evaluate my strategic philosophies were also shelved. The vast majority of questions were word problems and inane brain teasers that had nothing to do with the role. The interview itself was not difficult in the traditional sense, as they were hung up on the intricacies of the brain teasers.

    The forward-looking philosophical direction shared with me will not work, thought it was not clear that the interviewers realized it. The direction is being pursued with great vigor since it came down from the top. I was looking for the fire alarm half-way through the second interview. I did not receive an offer and would have declined it if I had.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fredericksburg, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Fredericksburg, VA).

    Interview

    There wasn't really an interview, they just asked me to come in and explained what was expected of me. I had asked for a cashier job but was offered a Sales job, which I was told would be 8.75 an hour. What they didn't tell me was after my training was done, my hourly pay would go down to 4 dollars an hour and commission. Pretty shady if you ask me. It also took maybe two or three weeks to finally be schedule and begin working, but they offered no explanation as to why.
