    Brief, really just filling this out so glassdoor will let me see their info they try hiding until you fill some things out. Take this all with a grain of salt. Pay no attention to it. It means nothing.

    Interview

    I was emailed to set up an interview and I decided to call back. While waiting to call back I asked the lady to pull up my resume. 1) She couldn't find it even though I spelled my name to her 2) When I asked her the regarding policy for the drug testing (Not mentioned in the application when I applied) I asked her what Sears policy was on drugs and if they handled their drug testing at a federal or state level. She scoffed at me. Literally laughed over the phone like I was joking and I felt pretty perplexed at such a response. At her response before she even bothered talking again I felt pretty disinterested in her lack of professionalism at the question. I told her I didn't want to pursue to follow the screening into the group interview they had coming up afterwards.

    I felt like it could have gone better, but I believe Sears should take some time to teach their employees to be more professional. Even had I not been using a Medical card or not, the level of professionalism was sub-par to poor. Not impressed.

    They ask you about the things that you can bring to the company. How do you work in group. The interview is very professional and organized. The process is not difficult.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears in October 2016.

    Interview

    Structured, very vanilla process, lacks personal fit information just your typical tell me about a time questions. The interview was conducted in a closet sized room which was quite awkward for both the interviewing individual as well as myself. The form they are given is structured and takes about 20 minutes to a half hour. I was able to answer the questions satisfactorily. The interview did not provide a tour of the facilities or a review of product lines which i thought would be great.

    all you need to do is to score as high as possible in assessment, make sure you have a background in selling before, that would be a plus! good luck!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Concord, NH).

    Interview

    Great interviewer and good questions, but the pay was way too low for a drug test and all these evaluations. Nice people but I went somewhere else because it was too much of a hassle. It took them a week to get back to me even though I was offered the job on the spot. They were sketchy with the pay and understood why because once I did all this work I was bummed for the 7.25 an hour (my state minimum wage) So I declined the offer and now I've been harassed with phone call after phone call on why I declined it. I keep telling them why..and they can't fix it obviously. I guess they can't take the hint because five people have called me over and over about it. Just don't apply or work there..company going down the tubes and for a job like that you're worth more than minimum wage. McDonald's pays more.
