    Backroom Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Aurora, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Aurora, IL).

    Interview

    went in for an interview. interview basically consisted of them informing me of how things ran around there. she asked what my asking pay was, I said I was open to negotiating. then asked what I made at last job, and I told her, which is a bit high for a retail clothing store. she said she would put in a request for an hourly pay less than what I'm used to making. then I was told they will send me an email with an offer than I can say yes or no to. the next day I get a call from her, she basically told me to change the position that I'm applying for, because I originally was applying for stock associate and she convinced me to go for cashier. that way they can send me the offer. I changed it, even though I had to take another assessment. then about 20 minutes later I get an email saying I didn't get the job. what a complete waste of time. I canceled an interview because I was under the assumption that I would get an offer sent.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Casper, WY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    There were different interviews with two different people on the same day. They were very friendly and at first I thought I wouldn't get the job because I was kind of nervous during the first interview, but I was more calmer during the second interview. It was mainly scenario questions and tell me about a time when... and how you dealt with it questions. They were really big on the credit cards and the SYW program, so my advice would be to do your research and know as much as possible about those programs.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fredericksburg, VA

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Asheville, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    employee arrived 15 mins late for interview, no one knew I was there in HR, short questions and then hired immediately, but I do not know for how much or how may hours, the HR Corp will email me the job offer. Sloppy procedure, I could take a different job in mean time since I do not know what I am hired for and amount of pay/schedule.
