Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears in April 2016.

Interview

Approached recruiter via email, got set up with a live coding, over the phone technical interview. The interview itself was very straightforward, I would review standard Java/OOP concepts (polymorphism, inheritance, etc.), and common data structures, such as ArrayList, HashMap, LinkedLists, etc. and know how to implement each one.

After I completed my interview, I was called the next morning with an offer. In the end, I declined because of a lack of good housing options. I calculated that I would be spending around 50% of my salary on housing. If Sears provided a housing stipend or intern housing, I'm sure they would attract more candidates.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    met at university job fair, met with recruiter. Recruiter was professional and friendly. Then a technical interview was arranged. The technical interview was done poorly but the questions were not difficult. She did not seem very friendly but it may have just been that day . I did not make it past this stage but there would have been 2 more interviews after.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (Pune (India)) in April 2010.

    Interview

    First of all HR people seems to be very very bad at speaking english. No manners. and technical interviewer was like having having fix set of questions and answers. if you try to give practical answers his face expression tell he didn't understand answer so please you need to give bookish answer only. All questions can be found in websites he just copied them and was asking. I recommend please don't join this company as you will find lots of stupid people around you.
