Application Details

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

Interview Details

I applied online and I got a call to come in 2 days later. My first interview Was fairly easy, only about 5 questions that referred to my past work experience. My second interview was the same day about an hour later with the manager. The second interview was a bit harder for me only cause he spoke pretty fast. It made me a bit more nervous. He asked me questions referring to what I learned from my previous interview and what I know about working in the food industry. He had also asked me questions referring to my past work experience. He told me to come in the next day for my backround check and and drug test. For the background check, I spoke to the general manager for quite a bit, he asked me a few questions. Then he had me sign stuff and I left to go get the drug test.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Sam's Club in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was painless. I filled an application out online and called back a few days later to see if they had received it, and the personnel manager called me in for an interview, which lasted about 10 minutes while they asked me a few questions pertaining to my life skills. After I called a few days later, I was told my hours did not suit their needs. However, a couple weeks later I received a call asking if I was interesting in applying for a different position that suited my hours, and I agreed. I went to one more interview similar to the first and then a third and final interview in which we discussed drug testing, background checks, and my pay.

    Interview Questions
    • "Name one time you had to make a difficult decision. How did you approach the situation and what conclusion did you come up with?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was really no negotiation. The pay is a set pay scale, so I was not able to negotiate that, and the hours were as-needed.
