Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in August 2013.
Interview Details –
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 Question – The question was,"What did you like best about your last boss?". View Answer

Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – Typical interview questions Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops.
Interview Details – It took me over 2 months to get hired here. I only went in for 2 interviews but went back and forth via email dozens of times with the store manager. Heres the catch, it doesnt matter who likes you, if the HR manager says no (she is the final interview), then you dont get hired. She overpowers the Store manager- doesnt make a lot of sense to me. Everyone puts on a great front, very smiley, happy, polite.
Interview Question – They did not ask any odd, difficult questions... very cut and dry. Nothing unique that made me think or caught me off guard. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No ability to negotiate. I told them what I wanted, they offered MUCH less per hour. Said they could offer me no more, that was their max rate but I needed a job.
