    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Southfield, MI
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process were fairly simple. The online application was straightforward. My interview was at night, which was kind of weird for me since I'd never had an interview that late. However, the position required me to come into work at 9:30pm.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Sam's Club in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very simple process. I was interviewed the first time by an employee who would potentially supervise me if I got the job. All she did was ask around ten scenario-type questions and then we were through. took about 10 minutes. Was called in for a second interview to go over what the job entailed and sign paperwork. We were finished quickly after that. Called in for a third interview and was told the pay I would receive and asked to complete a drug test before they would offer the position. They were very hasty about my coming in for each interview. I was called in for my first interview the day of my application and went in, was asked to come in the following day (I was busy and went in a day later), then was asked to come in the third time the day afterward. It's nice if you don't like to wait.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview Details

    Submit an application online or at the kiosk in store. I suggest you go to the membership desk and ask to speak with a manager. Introduce yourself and let them know you are applying. Make it quick, they are busy. If they call you in for an interview come dressed business casual. The first interview is with a hourly supervisor, second with a salary manager, and third with the GM, and may be done on different days. If you make it they send you out for a drug test and when you pass that there is a three day orientation.

    Produce Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview Details

    I received an interview because I knew a friend that worked there which I believe helped out a lot. For a basic retail position, the interview was relatively challenging, however I don't expect perfect answers either. The first interview takes place with a "team leader" or supervisor. From there the second interview takes place directly after with a "coach" or manager.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell about a time when you successfully worked with a team.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I had no retail experience so I felt like I couldn't negotiate, but I feel like there might have been room to do so.
