    Easy Interview

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sears (United States)


    The interview was quick and simple. The interview couldnt have lasted more than 10-15 minutes. They didn't ask me many questions. The HR manager seemed nice and welcoming. Preparing for an interview is always suggested.
