    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Sears (Houston, TX) in January 2015.

    Interview

    very simple process, initial email contact, followed by set time and date. Phone interview lasted 30 minutes very in depth questions. I feel that I answered all questions successfully.
