    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Sam's Club in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was painless. I filled an application out online and called back a few days later to see if they had received it, and the personnel manager called me in for an interview, which lasted about 10 minutes while they asked me a few questions pertaining to my life skills. After I called a few days later, I was told my hours did not suit their needs. However, a couple weeks later I received a call asking if I was interesting in applying for a different position that suited my hours, and I agreed. I went to one more interview similar to the first and then a third and final interview in which we discussed drug testing, background checks, and my pay.

    Interview Questions
    • "Name one time you had to make a difficult decision. How did you approach the situation and what conclusion did you come up with?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was really no negotiation. The pay is a set pay scale, so I was not able to negotiate that, and the hours were as-needed.
