    I applied online – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Easy process
    Of three interviews. Questions were behavioural and were the basic types from your previous
    Experiences. Also the managers interviewing are fairly easy to talk to and you have to make a conversation like you do normally. Nothing different in the interview process.

    Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sears in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online though email since the mall website said to email resumes. I got a call a few weeks later to come in for an interview. The day of the interview I am half an hour early so I fill out an application form since I know they ask you to fill one out. I came with a spare resume, and everything. I go in and shake hands with the interviewer, she was really nice. Starts asking behavioural questions and asked why I left my last job. I was completely honest and she was really understanding. The interview went really great and she fixed me up for another interview with the head manager. A day before my interview with the manager, there's a snow storm and that was the only time it suppose to snow all week. She said that they will have to postpone it since he couldn't make it in for the next day and that he will call me to reschedule when he's in next. It's been a month and I haven't heard anything since. Luckily I found a better job. I don't know why he never called, or why she had to lie. If they lie to you before you get the job, I can imagine what it's like working there. They must not be very honest.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sears in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, two days later I got a phone call asking me to come in. When I showed up early for my first of three interviews, no one knew who I was to see or that I was coming. So someone else met me, took me to a faraway office at the back of the store and started interviewing me with a template of questions.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Interview Details

    It took three months to get an interview. Once I got an interview I met with the PMO director for about an hour. The manager of the department was not available so I had to come back the following week for another interview. After reviewing with the manager I was supposed to get a signoff from the Senior director of Sears but she was let go. So I waited another two weeks until someone who replaced her could sign. After 4 and a half months I did manage to get the job. Shortly after the director quit. Not a very good process.
