Connection Center Interview
I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Sam's Club (Streamwood, IL).
The interviews are really straight forward. "Tell me about a time you blah blah blah" type open-ended questions. No cover letter needed.
- Nothing unexpected here. Like I said, very straight forward. If you speak English, and you are not a total idiot you will get the job. Answer Question
This is a strict. structured, retail corporation so there is no negotiation. Your pay will vary though dependent on your experience. So lie if you have to about the years of experience. I doubt they will ever check.

I applied online. The process took a day – interviewed at Sam's Club (Oklahoma City, OK) in October 2013.
Met with assistant manager, charter associate, manager in training and finally HR rep who presented me with offer.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Sam's Club in July 2011.
There were two different one on one interviews before I was given my offer. First with the supervisor of the department, then the manager of Hardlines. They were both standard fare, asking me how I would deal with situations expressed in typical interviews such as dealing with an irate customer.

The process took 4 days – interviewed at Sam's Club in March 2011.
I was given 2 interviews by two different people. One interview was given by a team lead and the other was by a manager. Both interviews were pretty much exactly the same. The second seemed like a formality and the manager didn't take it seriously. There were about 10 questions total printed on a piece of paper and each question was followed by a set of 6 or 7 follow up questions. The interviewer would ask each question and then rate the employee's oral answer on a scale from 1 to 4. Each rating was assigned a letter instead of a number. If this sounds overly complicated, it is. But that is the Sam's Club way! Immediately following the second interview, I was sent down the street to an urgent care facility where I took a drug test (the pee in a cup kind). Three days later I received a phone call with the official job offer. I accepted and then it took about a week for me to then attend orientation.
- Name a time when you had to help a customer make a decision. What was the scenario? What did you do to help them? What was the outcome? Did you satisfy the customer? What could you have done to improve the customer's experience even more? What did you do to make the customer's decision easier? What information did you provide them with? How many more follow up questions can there be, you are wondering by this point? There are still more follow up questions even after you have stopped listening and started to wonder how many more follow up questions there can be? 1 Answer
I didn't negotiate the compensation given because it was very high compared with other retail jobs I had applied for and have had in the past. I also don't believe there would have been much room for negotiation either. For hourly associates, your compensation is the base rate for the position plus 25cents for each year you worked with your previous employer. Your base hourly rate depends on what level your position is. The levels range from 1 through 10(ish) and increase by roughly 70 cents per level. Level 1 would obviously have to be minimum wage.
