    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    It took a long time. The managers and supervisors were both late to the interview. It is very scripted as well. The second interview I did with the company was pathetic. It was very scripted and then I was told they were still doing interviews and that I'd hear back later. The next day I found out I was supposed to have my second interview but no one ever communicated that to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (Salisbury, MD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Really easy, there were a total of 3 interviews, which were done on the same day. The first interview was normal behavior questions, the second was the same but towards the end they want you to walk around the store with them while they ask you more questions. The last interview was with the store manager, I went into the office she asked me "so what brings you to Sam's Club today?". After that she really just asked whether I was in school, what I majored in, and she just explained the responsibilities of the job. Then she gave me my drug screening info to go do.

    There was no interview. It was literally "Take it or leave it, your choice." You sit in a room with a manager after waiting downstairs for them to meet with you. Then you are put in a room with all the other applicants, and that is your first day. There is no grace period and they do not allow you two weeks to leave any other positions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (Fishkill, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to Sam's Club online and about two weeks later I got a call to go in for and interview. On the phone I was asked about my availability but not much else. When I got there I went up to the members services desk and wasn't politely greeted but more demanded to go sit at one of the tables until my interview. My interview was supposed to start at one but no one came to get me until 1:15 or later. When the manager came she was polite but stiff and we went into the leadership office for the interview. She kept leaving and starting conversations with other employees and coaches that worked there and had me sit around and wait for her for extended periods of time. She asked me no interview questions, just when I was available to work and if I had transportation and if I had been a cashier before. I hadn't but they didn't really seem to care if I did. I got a drug test and then was called a couple days later setting me up for an orientation the next week. They hire everyone who comes in and gets interviewed as long as they pass the drug test, and they don't seem to care much about experience or really if you are qualified for the job, just as long as you can come in when you're supposed to. They really focus on availability but be warned they will change your availability to fit what they need

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Sam's Club.

    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
