    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Strawberry Plains, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Strawberry Plains, TN) in June 2020.

    Interview

    They ask the typical “what would you do in this situation” questions. They also ask about why you left your previous position. Fairly easy interview overall. After the initial interview I spoke to someone else who gave me the job offer, contingent upon background check and drug test.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in June 2020.

    Interview

    I was emailed about 2 weeks after applying to schedule an interview. I met with the team lead, and she asked me a couple of basic interview questions then described to me what the job was like. I then met with a manager about a week later for a second "interview" that was actually just her going more in depth with the job responsibilities and reviewing my availability. It wasn't really an interview, just meeting with the manager.

    Senior Database Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bass Pro Shops in February 2020.

    Interview

    2 rounds. First was a standard HR followed by an hour phone conversation with the manager (Jeff Hjelm). Simply one of the kindest people I have ever spoken to. Despite having 25 years of experience in the company, he made a great effort in introducing me about the company. Was told me that the next round (onsite) would be in a couple of weeks at their Springfield, MO office. Unfortunately, due to hiring freeze since the COVID had spread, I was not hired.

    Fishing Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Rancho Cucamonga, CA).

    Interview

    There were two people in the room. One asked me the questions while the other kind of explained what the job was and the responsibilities. It was kind of unsettling to only have one person do the talking while the other just kind of stayed and listened to my answers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Bass Pro Shops (Lubbock, TX) in June 2019.

    Interview

    It took well over a week to be called for an interview. I was told i’d be called the current week after my interview , then never was notified either way. They did not seem to be interested in me since i was going to school. In reality they seemed very unsupportive of me pursuing an education.

    Hunting/Fishing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bass Pro Shops (New York, NY) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Showed up and was crammed in a tiny office with 2 managers and 2 other applicants for a group interview. Did about 30 minutes of behavioral questions. They offered us $10 an hour with no benefits because we are part time workers. I asked if I could have time to think on it, so I could get a main job and work for them in off hours as a side gig. They told us no. They need open availability as scheduals are different every week and they will work us up to 39 hours every week. She admitted that they only hire part time to avoid offering FT benefits. No raises are to be expected unless you get promoted. The two managers there admitted to being with the company only a few months. When they offered me the position, I respectfully declined. I told the the lowest I could accept is 60k a year. They laughed at me saing the store manager only makes that much, and they only made 30k a year. I felt insulted that they could really offer so little. McDonalds pays and offers why more.
