I worked at Sears part-time
All of the staff was extremely friendly
Wish I could've stayed longer
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Sears (Hoffman Estates, IL).
Apologies in advance for my vague responses. I genuinely like the people I interviewed with on a personal level and do not want to embarrass them. The process was a series of back-to-back individual interviews. This was probably the oddest interview experience I've ever encountered. The interviewers had very little interest in discussing my skills, experience or accomplishments. None of the trendy behavioral interview questions were posed. Questions to evaluate my strategic philosophies were also shelved. The vast majority of questions were word problems and inane brain teasers that had nothing to do with the role. The interview itself was not difficult in the traditional sense, as they were hung up on the intricacies of the brain teasers.
The forward-looking philosophical direction shared with me will not work, thought it was not clear that the interviewers realized it. The direction is being pursued with great vigor since it came down from the top. I was looking for the fire alarm half-way through the second interview. I did not receive an offer and would have declined it if I had.
