Cafe Associate Interview

Cafe Associate
Phoenix, AZ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Sam's Club in August 2010.

Interview Details – Got a phone call to set 1 on 1 interview. After an interview with a supervisor, management interviews you. HR. associate calls you to set up drug screening and background checks. Fast process. After passing screening and check, HR notifies you of Orientation

Interview Question – Average questions like do you recall when you helped someone out that didn't require you to do so. Questions are customer service oriented. Most time consuming for me to answer was if I would have done something differently, ie on a project or when I assisted someone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Hourly wage was calculated by computer algorithm depending on work experience.

Easy Interview

Cafe Associate Interview

Cafe Associate
Worcester, MA

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 Question – "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.

Difficult Interview

Cafe Associate Interview

Cafe Associate

The process took a day - interviewed at Sam's Club in April 2011.

Interview Details – I was called by the Fresh manager a week or two after I submitted my application and scheduled for an interview the next morning. I had two interviews, one with the cafe leader and one with the fresh manager, and I thought they went well...was told they would call in a couple days. No call. I called the club and was told they had offered the position to somebody else, but were impressed with my interview and would recommend me for a cashier position. A week later, still no call, so I call back, and was given the run around.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to choose between two decisions.   Answer Question
