    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Was hired through grad school. Interview process included basic cultural fit questions. I met with a VP in Corporate Finance. The position was sold as someone that gets to work on important projects (true) and is rewarded for the work performed (false - base pay was good, but bonus potential ended up being zero).

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed with several levels of upper management for a job at the corporate headquarters in Hoffman Estates, IL via Skype. One person seemed bored during the interview process which led me to believe a candidate had already been selected. I had heard from several insiders that it is who you know rather than what you know. Actually Sears has a reputation for hiring people who are not qualified but know someone. I decided to apply anyway. Took several weeks to hear back.

    Interview

    Very detailed. Lots of in depth questions. Broken down by category, HR, sales, metrics etc. Lots to do with the treatment of associates and the rewards/recognition given to the associates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL).

    Interview

    The hiring process was slower due to me being an out-of-town candidate and the holiday season. A few of the interviews had to be rescheduled due to conflicts. Otherwise, the in-house recruiter was great – very communicative and supportive throughout the process. The team had a good mix of experience and young, creative types. They were forthright about the uphill challenge facing Sears Holdings, but presented an good vision for its future. The interview process was thorough but always pleasant.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were too difficult or unexpected. Questions were split between experience and what I'd call "mini-cases" (e.g. tell me what you think about such-and-such that we're doing, etc.).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    It was fairly quick - HR + hiring manager and finally with Senior Director.
    Received the call from HR and they did the initial Screening followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. After that I was invited for an in person interview at their Campus. Last stage of the interview process involved another phone interview with the senior leadership.
