    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.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bass Pro Shops.

    Interview

    Very fun. Supervisors are very friendly. Only complaint is that i had to go a total of 3 times, which wasn't bad, but it took a while to find out. There is a test you are required to take which is 90 Questions and it is pretty much just common sense things but MAKE SURE to read the directions because they try and trick you on some of them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Denver, CO) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Huge waste of time. I applied for full time and after filling out a 90 question long sheet and talking for roughly 30 minutes, the guy says he only has part time and the pay is a measly 9.50 per hour. That's less than what Walmart pays. They basically lied to me to get me down there and then offered me an insultingly low wage. If the big bass pro shops can't even match wally world then there is a problem. Also for such a terrible, low paying job, they have a 3 interview process. Sorry but you simply don't go through 3 interviews for 9.50 per hour part time. Complete joke that company is.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Memphis, TN) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Attended a job fair on last day of the event to apply for a part-time position. Met with an HR rep from a different store they had brought in for the job fair.

    She asked what I wanted to do in the store. I told her about my previous work experience and we discussed possible positions I would be qualified for.

    She explained they had screen 4,000+ applicants the prior two days and were no longer scheduling interviews on the spot but that I would be contacted in a few weeks to schedule an interview. She stated that based on my experience they would very likely call me and that if they didn't that I should contact her because she knew she had a job for me at her location!

    I received a call to interview with the department manager approximately two and a half weeks later at a local hotel (the store was still being built.)

    I interviewed with the department manager. Very laid back conversation. He talked about why he liked working for the retailer and about the various positions in his department. We discussed my back ground and skills. By the end of the interview he was giving me a paper application to complete and an Orion Personality assessment,

    After completing those I took them up stairs to the 'HR Hub' where the assessment was "graded". I then met with the Operations Manager who asked me about a few of my answers to the questions on the assessment, all the while explaining that there were no right or wrong answers. I later learned that they asked everyone I spoke to about the same questions.

    After that brief discussion it was back to the HR hub to wait. I was given several papers to fill out such as Authorization for a background check, W-4, Availability, Internet Usage Policy, etc. I was called in to speak to the HR Manager who reviewed my paperwork as she was typing it in the system. She told me what they would be willing to pay me. I explained that it was low. She told me they were still considering starting pay and that it may be increased. She advised that I go ahead and get my drug screen done so that I would be ready for orientation if I chose to select their official offer. She scheduled my screening and told me I would be contacted in a few weeks.

    The entire process on the interview day took approximately two hours. I was called back two weeks later to schedule my orientation.

    Negotiation

    HR manager told me during the interview what they were willing to pay. I told her it was low. She explained they were still setting pay rates and recommended that I complete my paper work and drug screen incase I wanted to think about it or if their official offer after the back ground check was higher.

    Their official offer was 50 cents higher than the initial rate at the interview with an evaluation and eligibility for a pay raise at 90 days.
