    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bass Pro Shops.

    Interview

    I applied for the position and was promptly called in for an interview. The interview lasted approximately 20-30 minutes. It was a professional, but relaxed interview. They inquired about your specific experience with the outdoors. For example, whether you were a Fisherman, Hunter, Hiker, etc. They then asked standard retail-type interview questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Springfield, MO) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Someone from the HR department called and left a voicemail following an application submitted through LinkedIn. After returning their phone call, we set up a time the following week for a phone interview. During the phone interview, she reviewed all of the available marketing department positions then we discussed my educational and professional background. After trying to find a fit with my educational and professional experience to their available positions, we discussed my current salary requirements to the available positions. Unfortunately, there wasn't a fit based on certain requirements. She agreed to keep my resume on file, and I agreed to continue looking for future positions periodically. She suggested checking back with her if I wanted any information on any future positions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Port Saint Lucie, FL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I thought that the team that they brought in for the new store screening process was very professional. There were enough interviewers that the process went quickly, I heard that there were between 1,500 and 3,000 applicants. I was issued a second interview appointment card while there.
    The second interview was with one of the heads of their Tracker Marine Division. He was quite pleasant and I believe that the interview went quite well with the exception of ONE question. See below.

    Interview

    Interviewing with this company is the most frustrating thing ever! First of all, they were looking for a creative person to fill the position. I come from a design background, so of course I'm creative. In the first interview, they were telling me how difficult it would be for me to transition from a design background to the Bass Pro aesthetic. I was utterly confused, because first of all they were making a cold judgment about me. Who are they to say that I'm not going to adjust? Second of all, did the job description not say they were looking for a creative person? I brought in a visual portfolio for them, which im sure was unexpected. I had a total of three separate interviews with the company, in which all of them there were two people in the room. In my first interview, the visual merchandising manager asked all of the questions, while some newly hired guy that was up in management was making irrelevant comments about me coming from a design background. He then proceeded to check his email during the interview!! How unprofessional is that? I should have quit the interview process after that one because all of it was a waste of time. I am proud to say that I found a visual merchandising position with a more prestigious company that appreciates my creativity. Your loss Bass Pro.
