Inventory Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee in Hoffman Estates, IL

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL).

Interview

The college grads have their own interview process. First round I did the interview on campus with a manager. Second round invitation is at HQ. They bring in the entire group for a intro presentation, had some current employees come for Q&A as well as the Inventory & Space V-president. Then they pull people one by one for a one on one interview with an inventory manager from various departments. The managers interviewed me wasn't even the one I eventually ended up working for, so I assume it was a general personality/skill background check. All the questions are very easy general out of the book questions, nothing special. Just be prepared to be at your best for an entire day, can be exhausting.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Sears in November 2015.

    Interview

    I liked the way the interview process was set up. There were two 1:1 interviews, a tour of the office, Q&A session and group activity. It felt like the perfect amount of time for an on-site interview. The interview was on a Friday and they told us we would hear back about final decisions on the following Monday/Tuesday. The interview was 3 months ago and I still haven't heard back.... They were very unorganized for the interview and have been nothing but unprofessional throughout this process.

    Interview

    I had my first interview on campus at my school and was invited to the the final round/on-site visit. I enjoyed my visit to the HQ and liked how their interview process was set up. My interview was on a Friday and they told us we would hear back about next steps the following Monday or Tuesday. It's been 3 months and I still haven't heard back or been reimbursed. They have been unprofessional and terrible communicators throughout this whole process.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online to the campus career website and was accepted for an interview. The first round interview was on campus, with two half hour interviews with two different people. About two weeks after, I received an email requesting a second round interview on site. There, it was an all day interview process. We first arrived, had an interview, took a tour of the building, had another interview, asked questions to a panel of employees, had lunch with those employees, did a group activity, then ended with a recap. The HR employee called me an hour and a half after the interview to let me know I had an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online, I participated in a phone screen about a week later. I was immediately invited for an in-person interview, however it took more than a month for me to find out when this interview would actually occur. The in-person interview consisted of 3 half-hour sessions with 2-3 interviewers. The sessions were very easy-going and low stress, mainly talking about my experiences in college and my interests, which makes sense as this is typically an entry-level position that consists of an extensive training program. As promised, I received a decision a week after the in-person interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • If you had one item at the distribution center and had to decide between two stores where to send it to, how would you decide?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I received a very fair offer and did not negotiate. For this entry-level position, I believe negotiation is not an option.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The overall process was very low key and easy-going. There was a single in-person interview with 2 managers and an employee in the current position. The recruiter prepared me ahead of time and gave me sample interview questions that the managers would ask. I brought projects with me to show my experiences from college, they really enjoyed that. I had very minimal Excel experience (which is a major part of the job), but they were confident that I would be able to learn quickly. I heard back within 2 weeks with an offer.
