    Interview

    Interview consisted of 3 interviews, first the supervisor, 2nd manager, 3rd store manager. Typical scenario/situational questions. All interviews completed in same day. Saw other applicants that had to wait over an hour to get interviewed, luckily I only had to wait about 10 minutes. Anyone should be able to do well in these interviews

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Sam's Club in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for an interview about 4 days later. Overall the process was short and to the point. The interview consisted of very basic situational and background questions relevant to the department I applied for. I interviewed with three supervisors, but only one really asked me questions. The other supervisors sort of outlined the duties and expectations for the job. I was asked to submit a drug test and background check. The next morning I got an offer and was scheduled for orientation. If you have work experience in retail the entire process is a breeze.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (Salisbury, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Really easy, there were a total of 3 interviews, which were done on the same day. The first interview was normal behavior questions, the second was the same but towards the end they want you to walk around the store with them while they ask you more questions. The last interview was with the store manager, I went into the office she asked me "so what brings you to Sam's Club today?". After that she really just asked whether I was in school, what I majored in, and she just explained the responsibilities of the job. Then she gave me my drug screening info to go do.

    Interview

    Applied online, I am still going through hiring process. I did two interviews on the same day all questions came from a script. Was sent to take a drug test and about 3 days later I was called to give the new references since the ones I listed never answered. About 3 or 4 days later I was called in for 3rd interview which wound up being 2 interviews as they brought in another manager for me to speak to. The first manager came back in and informed me that they still had other interviews and that they had to narrow the applicants down and that they would give me a call back either way. I thought the interviews had all gone good I have no idea why it is taking so long.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (Secaucus, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process was very generic. The questions were easy. I was hired on the spot and sent for a drug test within a week. The day they got the results back they called me to set up my training. The training videos were so long and useless.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    Hiring process is usually pretty fast. If they like you, they'll try to do the second interview immediately after the first. If the second interviewer (usually a manager) likes you then send you for a drug test same day. If you pass, you're hired and usually start the following Saturday.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty standard interview questions. "Tell me about a time when someone disagreed with you. What was the disagreement? How did you handle the disagreement? And what was the outcome?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Sam's Club (Idaho Falls, ID) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on a Saturday, received a call on Sunday to come in for an interview on Monday. Monday I went in for the interview and talked to a very nice woman who asked only 3 questions. (I will list below with a (1) next to it). So after that interview she asked if I could come back to speak with another manager later that day. I came back at the set later time and spoke with a man who was extremely friendly you can really tell he cared about his employees and their careers. Anyways He said he was supposed to ask the exact same questions as the first woman but he said he really just wanted to get to know me and who I was. after about 4 minutes he said he wanted to offer me the job and I could start Tuesday. He left the room to get some paperwork and came back to get me so I could meet with a 3rd woman who asked basic question (Will list below with a (3) next to it). So she went over the pay scale with me asked if this pay was alright with me. We filled out paper work and went over the job description. Then she gave me directions and papers to take to the drug test/background testing place. She said if everything came back clean I would get a call Tuesday morning. Later Monday night I got a call from the 2nd interviewer and he said everything was clean and asked if I was ready to go Tuesday for orientation. So that was the whole process, the only things I did not like was I was not told I was going to have to wait in line at the member service desk for them to page them to tell them I was here. So I suggest to come in for your interview 30 minutes early (I always do so I wasn't late thankfully I hate being late!) in case there is a long line at the desk. I waited about 20 minutes in line, then I waited another 15 minutes at the cafe for both interviews.

    Pay is based off experience. They offered me a dollar more than what I asked for so I didn't really feel a need to negotiate.
