Tulalip, WA

The process took a day - interviewed at Cabela's in January 2012.

Interview Details – Applied online and was contacted 1 month later for a 1:1 interview. I was asked very generic interview questions and then was asked to participate in the 2nd phase of the interview. The 2nd phase consisted of a saliva swab drug test. I was then contacted 1 month later with an offer by the warehouse manager(who is no longer with the company).

Negotiation Details – N/A

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Rogers, MN

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cabela's in September 2010.

Interview Details – Attended a job fair and presented resume. Was asked typical interview questions, and then I was given the chance to question company make up, theology, wage and benefit, and finally expectations of my position.

Work culture at this particular site is management by intimidation, from the top. No viable solutions or alternative approaches offered as to opportunities presented, only whining and demands. Coaching and problem solving skills would be helpful, or the option of "teaming" up with another, that has the knowledge to move in a positive direction and bring resolution to the opportunity.

Interview Questions

  • What process knowledge, or product familiarity will you bring to the department, and how do you see that as beneficial to the team?   Answer Question
  • What style of negotiation would you employ with an un-happy customer? Would you use the same approach with an irate customer? Do the two instances differ, and in which way?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, flat offer to all new hires.
