    Interview

    I applied online and a few hours later a manager called me to set up an interview. The next day I had the interview with a manager. The interview was very easy. The lady was very easy to talk to and very friendly. After I interviewed with her another guy came in and asked about my availability and told me about the duties and what the cafe would be like. Once I was done with the interview I had to fill out a few forms and sign a few things. Then she sent me on my way to take the drug test. After they get the results from the test and background check they call about an orientation.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Worcester, MA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    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?"   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    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.
