    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Atlanta, GA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Friendly and knowledgeable. They made me feel comfortable and they were down to earth. I went in thinking they would be uptight and rude like all my other interviews but they were nice.

    Office Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Merrillville, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Merrillville, IN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    This was the worest interview I have ever had. It was not even an interview. The manger on duty at the merrillville indiana location showed me to the back and than she checked her phone and than made a call to someone on the work phone (i assumed they needed help) she left without even saying anything to me. After 25 minutes she came back and told me that the position had already been filled. First thing I could think of why know one never called me to tell me to have me come all the way out here. In the middle of talking to me she than begin talking to someone else woth out even saying excuse me or anything . It was super unproductive. She than ask me my availability and I told her , which was the same I put on my application before I got the interview. She said have nothing with that availability. I told her thank you for her time and left. I will never be applying here again . Do not want to work for a company like. Don’t even waste time filling out the long application for no reason.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fremont, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Fremont, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The process was pretty simple, they asked the basic questions you would expect in an interview. Since I had no experience, the employer thankfully helped me by explaining the programs that Sears offered and what the cashiers were expected to do. I got an email later on the same day that I got a job offer. However, I wish that I recieved a phone call about it since my response was delayed though it's my fault. Although it was four days after the interview, that I didn't give a response, they did still allow me to accept the job offer.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears in September 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on indeed. Then I had to do a 30 minute application. Then my email was spammed by hiring managers. I eventually emailed a manager because my application was declined because I no showed an old K Mart job when I was 18 (7 years ago). I was just told to reapply.

    Not worth it. Why are they hiring? Aren't they going out of business?
