    Interview

    A week after applying for the job, I recieved an email from the HR offering me an interview at the store which I had applied to. I met with the store manager, was taken back to his office where we sat down and talked for an hour or so. He told me about how he got to where he is and what his expectations were of his employees.

    Office Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woonsocket, RI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Sears (Woonsocket, RI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied on a Tuesday night, got emailed Wednesday to set up the appointment. She asked me what days/times I was available, and I told her I was available Friday and Monday at 11 AM. She emailed me back saying that my appointment was scheduled Friday at 1 PM. Side note, everyone I spoke to on my way to the office was super nice from the sales associate who brought me to the office and the two managers that I met while I was there. Found out while I was there that I had been told the wrong time for my appointment - she had scheduled it for the time I had put down, 11 AM, not 1 PM as she had told me. This wasn't a problem, they managed to fit me in. The interview started with the gentleman telling me that the store would be closing in about two months (which I knew already going in), and then informed me that they weren't looking to hire for Office Assistants, what they really needed was cashiers. I politely declined - I am currently not looking to get back into retail proper in that way. Overall, a positive experience despite the setbacks. I wish they wouldn't have an ad up for a position they aren't looking to fill, however.

    • Would you be willing to work as a cashier as opposed to the office assistant position?   Answer Question
