    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    I was emailed to set up an interview and I decided to call back. While waiting to call back I asked the lady to pull up my resume. 1) She couldn't find it even though I spelled my name to her 2) When I asked her the regarding policy for the drug testing (Not mentioned in the application when I applied) I asked her what Sears policy was on drugs and if they handled their drug testing at a federal or state level. She scoffed at me. Literally laughed over the phone like I was joking and I felt pretty perplexed at such a response. At her response before she even bothered talking again I felt pretty disinterested in her lack of professionalism at the question. I told her I didn't want to pursue to follow the screening into the group interview they had coming up afterwards.

    I felt like it could have gone better, but I believe Sears should take some time to teach their employees to be more professional. Even had I not been using a Medical card or not, the level of professionalism was sub-par to poor. Not impressed.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    Got an email from a Sears recruiter with links for available positions and to email back after I've submitted the aplication
    Applied online including an assesment which took quite some time and had notified the recruiter about my application. He obviously did not realise that I have a job and that I am not available during the times he would call leaving me a message to call back. When I would call back, I would always get his voicemail. I asked him severeal times to send me an email with questions he might have for me but he kept on returning my calls at the wrong times instead of shedule a time for a phone interview. Very unprofessional attitude.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    When I applied 5 years ago it was a different set up from what it is today. Now days you deal with a market recruiter with no Human Resources in the store. One interview will be with your direct manager and the second will be with the store manager. Overall process can be lengthy, especially if you've moved a lot, then the background check can take a while.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied online and talked with a recruiter over the phone. The recruiter was very unprofessional and was more concerned with other companies I was interviewing with and what they were offering me rather than highlighting any points about Sears. The whole conversation was very awkward and overall made me feel it was necessary to cancel my in person interview.
