    Corporate Position Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cabela's (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    Had 5 interviews all on separate days. First is just a HR phone screen interview and the rest are panel in person interview. They took exactly 2 weeks to get back me for each step. 2 weeks to the day & hour. The whole process took just over 2 months. Of course they want you to come in immediately after they call. Irritated because they ended up hiring an inside person even though they made me jump through hoops and end up not getting the position.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview

    Interview process started with an on-line application. After a few weeks I was called for an interview. It was a typical "cattle call" where a number of candidates were pooled together and called in by name. Interviewers were brought in from out of town to a central location. Interview was a panel interview with everyone pitching a formatted question. Given a chance to talk about myself and my views. Thanked w/o any indication of what was going to happen. Called the next day and asked to come back for second interview the following day. Did not hear anything for about a week, then called and given an offer.

    Process took about a week. Applied online, got a call, was asked to come in for an interview. The managers were really laid back; made the process so easy. The interview was just like any other interview, standard and straight forward. She asked me general interview questions. After we were done she stepped outside to talk to another manager, she then came back in and offered me the job. I then had to do a drug test. Overall really easy.
