    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    I was extremely nervious. Sears Holding Company was very prestigious. I thought I had no chance, but I wanted to fight for the job. I worked hard on my Self-Preinterview questions. I was determined to get the job. Besides, I already had a great job, so though nervous, I was confident. I get to the interview, the first thing said to me was relax. I took them up on that offer, but just then, and Ironically, they asked me about 90% of the questions I thought I made up in the preinterview. I got the job and they at first paid me a dollar extra on my asking wages. And, the mca-softlines was a managerial position, I ran the mens section and the entire show department I was on fire.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    Store Manager and assistant store manager sit with you and ask basic questions ie what can you contribute to the store , what are qualities about a manager you'd like to embrace and qualities you for sure will not be doing. (I've worked for this company starting as a cashier and then advanced my way to manager so questions might be more inquisitive if you come off the street) dress your absolute best.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sears (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    So easy that anybody could get hired. They don't drug test anymore because they are desperate for staff. If you're a college student then this place can work with your schedule, but your life will become all about SEARS.
