Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Leeds, AL

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in October 2012.

Interview Details – Very little relevant questioning, I felt that my previous experience meant nothing. Manager gave you the impression that your salary compensation would be higher than you actually recieved. Intimidation is a tactic, nobody had the chance to apply for higher position unless you knew someone within the company.

Interview Question – How did you deal with a problem in your previous jobs?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No, there is no room for negotiation, you get minimum salary for maximum work.

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops.

Interview Details – I applied online and was called to set up an interview two days after. After the interview I also attended my orientation the same day which was not convenient at all because I was not told about it. I was hired at $8.00 an hour I was told because I had not retail experience. I know plenty of other employees though who have had a lot of retail experience but still started out at $8.00 an hour. My first week was rough training is conducted very poorly for the most part I was teaching myself.

Interview Question – I wasn't really asked any real difficult questions. For the most part they just ask how much experience you have in all the different departments and why you would be a good fit for Bass pro.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation.

Sales Associate

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in August 2011.

Interview Details – Took a personality test composed of situations and answered on a scale of 1-10 how much I either agreed or disagreed with the particular question. Interviewed with the head of human resources and a general sales manager on the first day in two separate interviews. Was contacted about two days later and interviewed by the merchandise manager and then made an offer. Product knowledge is very important to these people almost to the point of you being an expert on the items.

Interview Question – If you noticed a fellow employee stealing, what actions would you take?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Very little negotiation was entertained. The merchandise manager offered what I asked for which was rather high in the first place.
