    Interview

    Very simple. Typical questions like explain me a time you had to deal with a hard customer or worked in a group? 1 interview with manager and 1 explanation with store manager. The interview was very easy and they literally hire everyone who seems nice. Just come dress business casual.

    Filled out the application and went in. Hired very quickly. I was with the department manager for over an hour. We even toured the area i interviewd for.This was when they took the time to carefully select new employees. Now they don't take as much time with the interview process.

    Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sears (Buffalo, NY).

    Interview

    Was a poor, and unorganized interview in which I was asked my availability, and other common questions. Basically sat down with one of the managers, as she tried to sell me on making more money by selling credits. There was a lot of pressure from that aspect, as she proclaimed that if I did not sell credits, my time at sears would be very brief.Overall, it was a painful experience altogether, and I am glad I got out of there when I did.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sears (Duluth, GA).

    Interview

    Very friendly manager. He understood having to work jobs not as a first choice, but because you have goals to reach. He took the time to answer the classic questions as well as more in depth personality questions. Too bad that after I was hired, he changed companies. He was the most positive worker there and loved the retail environment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Alexandria, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    If your online application has been selected for an interview, a member of the department's hiring team will contact you. I was greeted and escorted to the interview location. The process was formal and structure with open questions. The manager explained the job position and gave details about the organization.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sears (Jensen Beach, FL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call a few days later for an interview. I walked in the store and went to the back (online pick up). There was no one there so I had to type in my last name for someone to come out then I told them I was there for an interview. They walked me in a room and I sat down. After a while someone pulled up my application and I sat down in another room with a manager. I told her about myself and answered questions she asked (while she kept getting phone calls). The actual interview was around 10-15 minutes. The questions were pretty simple, then she told me about the job. All they care about are getting people to sign up for shop your way rewards and sears credit cards. If you don't sell them, your hours will be cut.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears in October 2016.

    Interview

    Structured, very vanilla process, lacks personal fit information just your typical tell me about a time questions. The interview was conducted in a closet sized room which was quite awkward for both the interviewing individual as well as myself. The form they are given is structured and takes about 20 minutes to a half hour. I was able to answer the questions satisfactorily. The interview did not provide a tour of the facilities or a review of product lines which i thought would be great.
