    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.

    Archery Associate Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position and then sent a follow-up email via the general email on Bass Pro's career page. I received a response within a few hours notifying me that my email had been forwarded to the general manager of the Rancho Cucamonga store (Bob Minor), and I received an email from him the next day setting up an interview. I was impressed with how quickly everyone responded to me.
    I was interviewed by Mr. Minor, who was very friendly and talked a lot about all the benefits and perks of working at Bass Pro. He is very proud of his store. The majority of the questions he asked were typical interview questions about my experience, background in archery, and work ethic. After the interview I was given a personality quiz with work scenario questions like, "If you saw an employee stealing would you report it?".
    A few days later I received a call from the store to tell me when orientation was, where I got the job offer. All employees are first hired as part time associates at $9.50 per hour, but full-time positions do come up and are based on qualifications, not seniority.
    Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, overall a very nice experience.

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Myrtle Beach, SC) in May 2015.

    Interview

    They don't want to meet you, i.e. see your face... "They'll call you". The job is 15/16 hours per week, 5 to 6 hours a day. Pay is somewhere between 8 and 9 bucks an hour. When I said "Seriously?" Was told "What do you expect? this is the south? Wow! don't know what Century I walked in to...

    Receiving Associate Interview

    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.
