    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process for Sam's Club is very long. It takes about 3 weeks total. There are 3 interviews before you get hired, but if you get past the first 2 then you basically have the job. The questions are mostly behavioral questions, so study up on those because there are A LOT of them. At my second AND third interviews, I had to "sell" products and/or memberships to management. Don't get too nervous because they like it if you try, even if you think you can't sell.

    The best advice I could give to someone who has an interview there is to BE PREPARED!

    Interview Questions
    • Name a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer. What policies/tools did you use and how did you solve the problem?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There is no negotiation. They won't offer you a position unless they like your availability. Your pay is based on a computer system and experience, so you can't negotiate it, but they pay above minimum wage.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview Details

    Relatively simple. STAR type questions. They don't care about your answers per say, just your ability to answer. Drug Tested after initial offer. Background checks are slow. They do not care about your credit. Be honest on your application, as I am sure some of you are wondering.

    Interview Questions
    • STAR questions are challenging. Interviews are a numbers game. Apply over and over at many locations before you get a call. Don't give up.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    The process was three tiered. The first was a mini interview of the STAR behavoral type questions that seems to be all the rage now. It was conducted by a junior shift supervisor that would in turn be a fellow coworker as well. The second was like unto it with a shift manager of the same department. The final took place in the HR office upstairs with all the sign off and entering of more details into system.

    Interview Questions
    • I was shocked to be asked the type of questions that only floor personnel should be engaged in since I would be stationary at the cash register solely.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There is no platform for negotiation.
