Self Checkout Attendant Interview

Self Checkout Attendant
West Jordan, UT

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Sam's Club in November 2013.

Interview Details – Filled out application at the "apply here" kiosk in the Sam's club. It made it much easier to be able to follow up with some one immediately.Application included assessment to ascertain my level of honesty, commitment and motivation. Inquired at service desk if HR available. They were not at the time; however, by the time i got home from applying, HR had already called my home and left me a message to set up an interview. Interview set for next day. Meet with dept lead for first interview . Experience/Behavior based interview, "Can you tell me about a time when..." Second interview immediately followed with Store manager and assistant store manager. Much less formal then the first interview; however they asked questions to test my level of commitment and motivation.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
College Station, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Sam's Club in March 2012.

Interview Details – After an online application I received a phone call for an interview. The interview took place during normal visiting hours in an office that was private and comfortable. An interview with a COS was conducted, then another with the manager for the department I was applying for.

Interview Question – I was questioned about my feelings about sales, in particular selling memberships. I did not expect the job to be anything more than a cashier.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – This was an easy process. They knew I was a student and needed flexible hours, which they were fine with. As far as pay, they have a starting pay for this position (above minimum wage) and add to it for each year of experience you have as a cashier. I thought this was fair.
