    Loss Prevention Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Peabody, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Peabody, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and let me just give you the short answer waste of time. I was contacted to come in for a face to face interview. The interview took place in a small room and there were two people in it, a guy and a female. The female that was conducting the interview was really nice. The guy however just made the whole interview uncomfortable. I left with a bad impression of sears.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears (Nanuet, NY).

    Interview

    Ridiculously long the guy didnt see me until an hour later smh anyways the guy told me they were specifically looking for a female since theres already 5 guys which i didnt like at all and the only reason why there lookin for a female is so they can go into the ladies fitting room like hello isnt that what cashiers do ? I worked in retail and while i was a cashier i checked the fitting room regularly after that it just got awkward because i had a job and i only gave him certain days i could work guess he wanted someone more flexible idk lol and btw its 10 per hr if anyones curious.

    Loss Prevention Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spokane, WA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Sears (Spokane, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Met with the interviewing team of two for about 1.5 hours. It became clear that they did not have much latitude in formulating questions, or developing a custom conversation about the position. They produced a multi-page (four I believe) questionnaire containing standardized questions to be posed to all Sears applicants regardless of the position to which applying.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were creative and complex. One, for instance, asked the interviewee to explain a time when he/she conducted detailed analysis of a situation/problem, presented findings to a decision maker, and the presentation influenced some form of change.   1 Answer

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

    Interview

    The whole process took about a week and the interview was 30 mins long and they ask a series of questions, some are rephrased but the same question in different wording. They question your background and your previous jobs.Not hard if you have experience, just answer to the best of your ability.

    Loss Prevention Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sears (Tigard, OR) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Got interviewed fro this position and then they said they wanted to go a different direction with me so they made me a cashier. I had three interviews that day and it went from one person to the loss prevention associate and then the store manager. They all asked the same questions and some were just off the top of their head but nonetheless it was pretty easy to awswer and surprise them by refering to their previous awnsers and finding out things they didn't share.
