Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Toronto, ON

I applied in-person - interviewed at Sears in May 2010.

Interview Details Get application from Catalogue Department or online, filled it up and submit on place or on line. Wait for a phone call from the HR. If your availability is good, your chances to be hired are bigger. Then they will schedule an interview with a manager. If the interview goes well, they will give you a conditional offer of employment based on the police background check.
A week or two latter, if the background check is clear, you will be called to sign the final offer of employment.

Interview Question – How do you see yourself 5 years from now?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. they have their regulations. You either agree or you leave and do not accept the job
