The utility functions of In-store kiosks are varied in nature, from locating the products to printing coupons and recently, even getting you a job. Scores of retail and grocery stores have started using the computer stations for recruitment purposes. Notable retail giants using kiosks to seek potential candidates: Wal-Mart, Sports Authority, Albertsons, Best Buy, Borders, Circuit City, CVS, Kroger, Lowe's, Nordstrom, Pathmark, Publix, Target, Toys "R" Us and Sears.

Using In-store kiosks, managers avail just the information that can assist them in fast-up the initial screening process.

Processing a bulky volume of applications quickly and efficiently is possible by this exciting medium of recruiting.


Saving time of the company and the applicant, kiosks make it possible for the recruiter to filter and analyze the needed information. This facilitates immediate response from the recruiter that determines the potential of a candidate for a personal interview.

However, kiosks may filter-out older candidates who fall deficient in computer/IT skills. Applicants using a kiosk are recommended to carry a copy of their resume for references.

Take the Test in Time:

Kiosk applications may require candidates to face tests, aimed at checking math, writing or reading comprehension skills, which may take 15 to 45 minutes to complete. Some tests may also not be time-bound.

The tests can also be subjective, thereby requiring an applicant for instance for a sales job, to describe how he/she would counter in a given odd situation, trading with an irritating customer tactfully. Be clear and concise.

Practice is Perfection

Having awareness with the kiosk question-type is important for success. For this signing-in a new user identity or just glancing through the application actually submitting it may be done.

Match Your Keywords

Software process only acknowledges keywords' so highlighting such terms that most closely relate to the job is necessary. For example, if you're applying for a sales manager position, illustrate your experience "management of the sales and relationship with particular customers" or "client acquisition".

Keep Your Credit Clean

In the case of applying for a job that require handling the company's financial affairs, credit/background checks are most likely to happen after your application and consent.

Still, remember the kiosk is only a first step, so you should aim to grab that interview with a hiring manager.

However, in case you suppose that you performed inadequately on a kiosk test or committed a mistake, asking the on-site store manager to permit a retest or to re-file a hard copy application if recommended.
