    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview

    Relatively simple. STAR type questions. They don't care about your answers per say, just your ability to answer. Drug Tested after initial offer. Background checks are slow. They do not care about your credit. Be honest on your application, as I am sure some of you are wondering.

    Interview Questions

    • STAR questions are challenging. Interviews are a numbers game. Apply over and over at many locations before you get a call. Don't give up.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Sam's Club (Nashville, TN) in September 2013.

    Interview

    You get asked about 10 situational in depth questions about different scenarios. You will also get questioned on experience in running multi million dollar facilities. It helps to speak to prior experience in the field and be specific and talk about successes.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't remember specific questions but some include ethical decisions, going above and beyond to help someone, safety and security.   1 Answer

    Interview

    It was pretty easy. Asked all situational questions. They are expecting you to answer with the star model. Be prepared to get hired if you nail the first two interviews. Remember this is retail management no matter what position you are hired for.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember the questions, just that they were situation based.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There isn't a negotiation phase. you start at the base. There is a regional pay adjustment if you work in a metro area.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sam's Club (New Berlin, WI) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I apply threw indeed which sent a link to there web page. Got a call from HR Manager It was out of state for the job but I live about 40mins from the training store illinois/wisconsin border. I was asked to meet at a hotel as they were doing plenty of interviews. I met with HR Manager and District Manager. When I went in for the interview they asked me to tell them a little about myself. After I told them a little about myself they asked 6 behavioral type questions, alternating between the two of them. After that I got to ask some questions. It seem very short maybe about 30mins long for the interview when I just spent hour trip to get there. I felt like they were only looking for certain people even with my 8 years experience in retail management maybe I was overqualified. They did tell me the starting pay right off the bat which would be $43,000 which wasn't to bad to start. Just hard to get a job when they do 40 interviews for one spot that's ridiculous. Did not get any feed back after the interview but I sew the same job post few weeks later in my state Illinois so I applied again and got an Email day later saying I would not be considered.

    Interview Questions

    • The 6 behavioral type questions were easy and hard. Few were easy to explain right off the bat as well there were few that needed more time to explain. The District Manager had kind of hard time reading her questions so at times didn't make sense to me but I did my best she was new. Oh great all I have to say!!!   Answer Question

    I applied online – interviewed at Sam's Club (Reading, PA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was real basic, they also wanted to see a good employment history. The supervisors just wanted to fill the job.. I lost interest after our first meeting.. The About talked about a schedule .. I realized I'm not a fan of the walmart corp.. Their were no difficult questions just the normal routine interview questions.
