Cashier Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Big 5 (Bakersfield, CA) in November 2015.

Interview

The interview was a more 'get to know you' approach. The questions were mostly about myself and what I did prior to working there. I was hired on the spot and not asked any hard thought out questions. The interview seemed like just a screening to make sure I was a decent person who was able to work with people and hold a professional manner. There was not much to the interview but questions for the hiring manager to get to know me and my schedule.

Interview Questions

  • Tell me about yourself. Why do you want to work for this company? What is your availability?   Answer Question

Negotiation

Manager was open to working with my schedule as a student.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call about two weeks later to come in for an interview. Very friendly manager. Asked about my work experience, sports experience and if I'd be able to handle the job. Knew I didn't get the job when he mentioned they were still interviewing other candidates. Nice guy, though.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Big 5 (East Los Angeles, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    They only asked a few basic questions. It was pretty simple, but you still need to prepare for it ahead of time. Review questions from the internet and dress nicely for the interview. They will also not hire you if you have a weird haircut or hair color.

    The manager called and gave me a phone interview, then told me to come to an in person interview the next day. The interview was easy and the manager made me feel comfortable by giving me information about himself and how he started as a part timer. After a couple questions, I got hired on the spot!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Big 5 (Chino, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    Big 5 allows for walk-in inquiries for employment. Typically they have signs in front that boldly says "Now Hiring." I came in the evening when the general manager at the time was there and he was very friendly and asked about my background. Within the week I was interviewed by another manager and head cashier. They asked questions in regard to my background and experience with sales. I received a phone call by the end of the week offering employment. The interview was a bit intimidating but overall satisfactory of the company's mission and expectations. There's a lot of paperwork to fill out but typical for a franchise business.

    Interview Questions

    • Knowledge of what I would sell along side certain sports merchandise. For example, an entire list of what I would sell to someone buying baseball gloves.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't get the opportunity to negotiate but it was a part-time gig and minimum wage is the norm.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Big 5 in May 2008.

    Interview

    Nothing really, took a math test got hired on the spot and had to wait to have a background check done in order to sell guns. I went in just looking to turn in my application form and didnt dress for an interview (had actually just been at the gym). A manager met with me right there and had me take the test and asked me when I could start. Helped that I was female because all other employees were male and they needed help in the clothing department.
