    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Miramar, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Wonderful, short, easy and to the point. The interviewer was nice, but I didn't get hired. I am really busy so my hours didn't seem appealing. Overall it wasn't too bad. The pay was minimum wage.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sears (Savannah, GA).

    Interview

    I went during an Hiring Event. I was interviewed in a group of 3 other prospective employees. I believed the company really needed people and it was easier for them to just interview us all in groups of 3 or 4. We basically wrote in our own answers in the interview question sheets. as long as was open to their schedule and the job requirements we had the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Aurora, IL).

    Interview

    went in for an interview. interview basically consisted of them informing me of how things ran around there. she asked what my asking pay was, I said I was open to negotiating. then asked what I made at last job, and I told her, which is a bit high for a retail clothing store. she said she would put in a request for an hourly pay less than what I'm used to making. then I was told they will send me an email with an offer than I can say yes or no to. the next day I get a call from her, she basically told me to change the position that I'm applying for, because I originally was applying for stock associate and she convinced me to go for cashier. that way they can send me the offer. I changed it, even though I had to take another assessment. then about 20 minutes later I get an email saying I didn't get the job. what a complete waste of time. I canceled an interview because I was under the assumption that I would get an offer sent.
