Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Lehi, UT

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Cabela's.

Interview Details – Cabela's will call you up and do a pre-screening over the phone, and then they will pull you in for an interview. After the interview if the Manager really thinks you'll do well in the position... they will do a drug screening there on the spot with a mouth swab - if you are a wait and see, then you may not get a drug test on the spot & then you'll get called in for a drug test if you are the best candidate.

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee
Dundee, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Cabela's in July 2012.

Interview Details – Initial application process is that one has to apply via online, however if you are called in for an interview you then must fill out a paper application in store. You are generally interviewed by the manager of the department that you are applying for, for instance I was interviewed by the Front End Manager. If you pass the interview process you go directly up to HR and have to submit information for a background check and perform a drug test. After that you can wait up to 2 weeks to get a call back if you are hired or not.

Interview Question – That I can recall there where no difficult or unexpected questions, just simply the questions one would expect when interviewing for a cashier position.   Answer Question

Outfitter Interview

Outfitter
South Charleston, WV

I applied online - interviewed at Cabela's in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied during the holiday season, so it took a little while for the company to respond. My interview went well, but I had to keep calling to try to get things finished. They let me know I needed a drug test and background check, and I immediately hurried to get those completed. Then after learning I passed them, it took about 3 or 4 weeks to find out I was going to be hired for sure. The interview was very laid back, but professional at the same time.

Interview Question – Tell me about a situation where a customer was angry with you and the steps you took to solve it...   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation and I still have no idea how much I'm getting paid
