Cashier/Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phila, PA

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Sears (Phila, PA).

Interview

The HR department was very professional but when I went for the store interview at the Cottman & Bustleton store, the hiring manager did not seem very professional: he was quite late for the interview and he looked unkempt and the office he interviewed me in was messy looking. He was not prepared for the interview, he had not read my application - nor did he even have my application in front of him. He also seemed rather arrogant. I left there with a very bad impression of Sears.

    I applied, and within a few minutes, I got a call. I interviewed the next day. They offered me the job less than 3 days later. The interview itself was short and simple. It's nothing to be scared of. It's pretty informal and upfront. It was a painless experience. Just breathe.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sears (Daytona Beach, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Put in application and was emailed the next day for an interview. I read previous reviews saying how they are always late and thought it must just be those people. No, my interview was scheduled for 3:30 so I got there at 3:15 and told one of the employees that I had an interview at 3:30 so they told me to wait closer to the time and then to knock on a door. So now it's 3:45 and one manager comes around the corner saying she'll have someone else come interview because she needs to eat lunch. So it's 4 and another interviewee got there and was shocked when I told her what time my interview was supposed to be and she ended up leaving because she did not want to wait anymore. I finally get called back around 4:15 (a whole hour after I arrived) and the interview was easy, basic questions like "tell me about yourself", availability, and why I left my past jobs and did and didn't like about them. Then he described the 3 main points of the job that I was applying for. The interview was less than 10 minutes long and received an email the next day saying I was hired and to do the prescreening process (drug test and background check). Needless to say I will not be taking the job because if that's how it was just for an interview I cant imagine how it would be working there. Very disappointing sears.

    Interview

    This was a joke. They want you to "sell the charge car". If a customer already has a store card have them sign up for the store card with the master card symbol. 1 out of every 10 customers needs to sign up for a card? Joke.

    Reasons for Declining

    The manager flat out told me if you can't get 1 out of 10 people to sign up for a charge card and I have to yell at you, don't act like I didn't tell you. Yeah, I don't need that drama.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sears in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty quick. I got a call from them 2 days after i applied online. So of course i called them back, but guess what? I called them 10 times and not once did they answer the phone. so i went to the store instead to set up an interview. When i went there I was interviewed by the store manager and the whole interview lasted for your 15 mins. The questions were pretty basic, just like any job interview. They asked me about my past job experiences.
