    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Interview Details

    5 interviews...only 1 in person. Interview questions were not specific and some of the interviewers you could tell really didn't care...they were just trying to push you thru. The regional interview was the biggest joke. The district manager is not very bright. The district h.r. is incompetent.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    I had to have a BCI, and DMV check done before an offer was made. Afterwards a drug screening and physical were scheduled and paid for, along with updating or showing proof of current immunization schedule, particularly Tetanus (scrapes and small hand cuts are inevitable in this type of work), and the flu shot is highly recommended since you'll be going into peoples home who might be contagious during flu season.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Was not complicated, briefly spoke about my previous job experiences and answered some basic questions, a lot of what if scenario questions so study those. Make sure you have scenarios to talk about where you show that you have helped customers in the past or helped people in general even if it is a volunteer experience. Just make yourself seem like someone that they could use as an asset to the company.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Was pretty straight forward. Had to go thought two different interviews. I do not see why. But they will hire you regardless of experience. For a position like MCA I dont see the necessity for two interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sears.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview really. It isn't difficult as it is an entry level job to a retail store. They basically go through 3 different interviews. You pass the 1st and move to the 2nd and so forth. The third interview is with your store manger. 1st and 2nd are HR and Area manager.

    Interview Questions
    • There is nothing real unexpected. Be able to talk about how you handle customers and how you may have had situations in the past that would apply to the job. It really isn't hard and they just want to know you will treat people respectfully and responsibly.   Answer Question

    Consultive Sales Associate- Home Improvement Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    I applied online and within a 2-3 weeks received an email requesting to set up a time for a phone interview. The phone interview went fairly well. She asked a lot of sales focused questions where I had to give specific examples of things I have done - pretty typical. The call was not from the local store I applied to. She was very friendly and professional, took notes the whole time, and said she would pass the results onto the hiring manager at the local store who would contact me if interested.
