I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Sam's Club in July 2012.

Interview Details – The hiring process is a joke.

If you can stroke the ego of the supervisor/manager in charge of your hiring you are in.

I have associates that do not know how to do basic math working for me.

Interview Question – What would you do if you found yourself in a situation and did not know what to do?   Answer Question

State College, PA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sam's Club in October 2011.

Interview Details – They are fairly quick to give you a call back. You are called in for a primary interview and usually sat in the cafe or an office (if available). The questions are pretty general, similar to most other interviewing processes. If you seem to be a good candidate they will either schedule a secondary interview or conduct it immediately following your primary interview with a manager. You will have to have a drug test done which usually takes about a week to get back. And after that you will begin your training process.

Interview Question – Not a completely unexpected question, but sometimes difficult to answer if you don't have supervisory experience: "Tell me about a situation that you had a problem completing your work due to a distraction and how you managed the situation and finished your work."   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – In my experience I didn't have to negotiate. They paid me well over minimum wage (the company bases your pay on experience).
