    Cashier Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (San Jose, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Called me in, talked to 3 people including the store manager, asked me various questions to test my social and problem solving skills. They talked to me about various things and tried to gauge how dedicated I would be. Honestly, their biggest concern was probably just making sure that I would show up on time and that I would not be a jerk to the customers.

    MCA Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sears (San Jose, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews over the span of a few weeks. All were very short (around 10 minutes each). The interviews were one-on-one. First, the 2 MCA leads interviewed me on separate occasions. Both asked the same kinds of questions. The last interview was with the store manager. I was hired on site at the last one. All the people who interviewed me were much more pleasant during the interviews than when I had to work alongside them.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (San Jose, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Scheduled an appointment online (I think everyone gets this chance to be honest.) They called the next day to confirm the date, which I'm glad they did because I as afraid they wouldn't know of my interview. Met on the scheduled day and time. Interviewer was pretty nice and straight-forward. I answered the questions professionally and with some stutter, did use the word "Like" a lot. She straight up told me "I'm going to go ahead and not extend a job offer for you." Didn't ask why, felt like the position was already taken. Honestly, it's probably company procedures to have an interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (San Jose, CA) in May 2011.

    It was a one on one interview. I was interviewed by the manager hiring for their specific department. I was then interviewed by someone from human resources. The final interview was with the store manager. The interview itself was generally very easy. They asked typical interview questions and the questions focus mainly on your previous job experience.
