    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was pretty quick and straight forward. I filled out an application online and was called in for an interview within a week. They asked me pretty simple questions, standard for a cashier and some scenario questions as well. I was hired on the spot and I was sent for a drug test immediately following the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • None of them were very difficult but I can see a scenario question being difficult for an individual who never worked as a cashier before.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Applying online or in the store, they can be a little while getting back to you. Once they do finally get back to you, it's pretty much a fast track to employment. You sit through two interviews where they ask a couple run of the mill questions then you go in for training.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was asked to the interview. The HR person who was supposed to interview me never showed, so someone from the backery conducted the interview. They weren't even from the department that I applied to. I was asked a lot of long winded, complicated questions read off a sheet about past experiences working with people. The interview was conducted in the heating room. I got no call back, even though they said that they would. Do not apply here. They will waste your time.

    Interview Questions
    • It was a paragraph about what was a time that I had to work with someone who was difficult and how did i handle it, in a nutshell.   Answer Question
