    Hunting Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    All in all the process was pretty easy. It took a little over an hour with a one on one interview with the manager. I was asked the basic questions of why you want to work here, what is your strength/weakness, what was did you like/not like about your last boss.

    I was then given a personality test with 90 questions with the answers being 1(disagree) - 10 (agree). I was asked about products I use, what do I hunt/fish, where have I, etc. Do not lie, they will ask you questions that are specific to the equipment you are using, and then ask to explain. If you do not knowledgeable on hunting equipment, just be honest.

    Tip: Dress for a professional interview. No jeans, boots or t-shirts. I wore khakis with a button up and loafers, and it was appreciated and mentioned. There were quite a few other applications on the desk for the same position but I was offered the job before I left. First impressions are everything.

    All said and done it was a pleasant experience.

    Group Sales Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very awkward due to being interviewed before store was being built. Interview took place at a Hilton Garden Inn hotel. I arrived 20 minutes early and noticed two Bass Pro employees eating breakfast in the lobby. The male was wearing khakis and a BPS polo shirt and the female was wearing a business style skirt and blouse. I checked in at the hotel desk and stated who I was and why I was there and they told me to be seated in the lobby. Thirty minutes later I was told by the hotel clerk that they were waiting for me in room 411. I approached the elevator and arrived at room 411 and knocked on the door. I was summoned in by a the female who was sitting on the bed as I opened the door all I saw was legs. It felt like an episode of Dateline as I cautiously introduced myself. The male counterpart arrived a few minutes later and started a panel style interview with my resume in each of their hands.

    Negotiation Details
    I was contacted within a week with a lowball offer that I declined but told them I was interested for "x" amount. I was employed and didn't need the job without getting what I wanted. I was told that they would get back with me as I had the experience they wanted. I received a 2nd phone call a few days later with another offer. This one was a little closer to "x" amount. Still I would giving up more due to losing vacation time and a lower salary. I declined yet again. At this point I knew I was being recruited and the ball was in my court. I received another phone call 2 days later and the store manager told me he battled with the home office and this is his final offer and the last phone call. He came back with an increase which was dead on to the current salary I was making. I accepted the offer contingent to the working schedule stated in the interview in which I didn't get in writing.

    PS-the schedule never came to fruition. The store manager denied promising the scheduled work days. I had no proof due to the HR person leaving the company and shortly after the store opened the store manager left the company.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application and was given one of the personality assessments on the spot. Within minutes I was sitting down having an interview with the department manager. She seemed fairly cold, but was interested enough in my work experience and goals to allow me an interview with HR. The process was easy, with your average questions.
