Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Cedar Rapids, IA) in May 2015.

Interview

Brief, interview was very informal and friendly. Each store manager can be different though and you have to be prepared for anything. Experience was fair to good and it all depends on who you interview with.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Tucson, AZ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    After completing an application online there were several tests and questionnaires to complete as well. Next was a phone interview with a corporate recruiter, followed by a phone interview with a multi-unit district manager in training, followed by a phone interview with the district manager, followed by an in person interview with the Store Manager. Job offer was give via phone by the original corporate recruiter. The whole process was very disjointed, and the various parties involved did not communicate well with each other, especially the corporate personnel with the field personnel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sears.

    Interview

    3 interviews were squished into 1.5. There was the portion of the interview that involved scripted questions "describe a time you..." Then I was asked to tell a little more about myself. After that there was some questions about availability and salary requirements. I was sent home and called by the store manager later that week.

    Interview Questions

    • I did not receive many curve balls in this interview. My advice is fairly general. Be confident, be ready to show what you have to offer, and show genuine interest in the job.   Answer Question

    Interview

    One word will sum up the on boarding process with Sears Holdings "difficult" It starts with applying on brassring witch is the most useless system for applying and for hiring as I am finding now. Just talk about the worst hiring system but leave it to SHC to embrace something that does not work.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sears (Latham, NY) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The HR Manager handled the interviews, it wasn't until the end of the second interview (Offer) that you meet with the Loss Prevention District Manager, it was in a room and rather impersonal. During the interview, it was clear that the company does mass hiring, making the process very, very easy. Nothing about the entire interview process was difficult.
