    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Frederick, MD) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview at Sam's Club is really the same for everyone, unless you're applying for a management position. When you go for the interview, they bring you to the "Club Cafe" and make you wait between 5-8 minutes for the supervisor to start your interview. The first part of the interview is with a Supervisor and then the second part is with an assistant manager or the Club Manager. The interview itself is pretty straight forward. Nothing too difficult. The questions they as about past working experiences are kinda repetitive but not to the point where it's answering the same thing over and over again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer took a lot of time doing other things for the club. The interview was very impersonal and in the open area of the cafe. She kept being called away from the interview. It just seemed like they weren't on top of their game today, but the interviewer was very polite.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Rapid City, SD) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward bit felt extremely impersonal. You go to the member desk, give them your interviewers name and they tell the entire store over the radio you're there which, if you have social anxiety like I do, can be pretty embarrassing. Then they make you sit in the food court for about 20 - 30 minutes, a manager comes to get you out of the sea of people. They ask you general questions and hopefully give you a second interview on a later date.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Houston, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was told to be there at one, around 2:30 I was finally approached by a tire bay manager. It felt alot was going on, and it seemed more of a inconvience. He didn't seem like he wanted yo be doing a cashier interview. I was told to wait so he could process the results from my interview and another manager would follow up in 30 min. A hour later I was approached and just asked to describe myself as he looked around and didn't seem to want to listen or be doing a interview. I was asked to wait and then a hour later given information to take a drug test and was told they will call back. Unable to tell me what the hours would be or any specific information.
