    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (San Antonio, TX) in March 2015.

    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.

    Interview

    I was really nervous at first but overall it was pretty easy question, very basic. I was interviewed by two different people. But they were very friendly but later they turned out to be very mean and inconsiderate. But of course they put on a big smile but the questions very childish. I fell like my year old sister could have answer them with perfection but then again the interview is for carts

    Interview

    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.
