Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Midland, TX) in August 2017.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sears (Merrillville, IN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    This was the worest interview I have ever had. It was not even an interview. The manger on duty at the merrillville indiana location showed me to the back and than she checked her phone and than made a call to someone on the work phone (i assumed they needed help) she left without even saying anything to me. After 25 minutes she came back and told me that the position had already been filled. First thing I could think of why know one never called me to tell me to have me come all the way out here. In the middle of talking to me she than begin talking to someone else woth out even saying excuse me or anything . It was super unproductive. She than ask me my availability and I told her , which was the same I put on my application before I got the interview. She said have nothing with that availability. I told her thank you for her time and left. I will never be applying here again . Do not want to work for a company like. Don’t even waste time filling out the long application for no reason.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears in March 2018.

    Interview

    I was asked a few questions and then the interviewer talked about the company for a few minutes. I was indirectly warned of how big businesses are going out of business recently and that if I worked there, we would all have to really try to get people to come into the store. Honestly, that was a bit terrifying because job security completely went out the window. The pay rate was extremely low, there weren't any benefits offered because they just wanted a fill in part time employee, and it didn't feel like the business was doing well. I decided to go with a well-established bank instead for employment.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sears in September 2015.

    Interview

    Got a call from a guy in Mississippi in response to my online application for a Lafayette Louisiana job. He could not tell me hours or pay, much less scope of work. I went in for the interview anyway. When I got there, I found out that the guy who makes the hiring decisions is on vacation. They pulled and assistant manager from the shoe department to interview me because she was available. She sat down and literally said to me, "Honestly I don't know much about the job you are applying for. I am just interviewing you because I had a few minutes and I am an assistant manager." She then proceeded to tell me that I was expected to work for minimum wage, and I probably would not get more than 15 hours a week. To say the least I was insulted. I have over 7 years experience in my field, rave reviews from former employers, and positive statistics for office management from all of my previous positions. I finished the interview, but even if they offered me the job I do not think I will be taking it.

    Applied online (took about an hour) and received a call the next day. Interview was a few days later. Interviewed with the store manager. The manager made me feel relaxed and asked about my prior work experience. He also explained the job, Sears' history and direction, and how many hours a week I could expect to work. We negotiated a starting pay (this job starts at minimum wage).
