    Corporate Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Cabela's (Omaha, NE).

    Interview

    Had 5 interviews all on separate days. First is just a HR phone screen interview and the rest are panel in person interview. They took exactly 2 weeks to get back me for each step. 2 weeks to the day & hour. The whole process took just over 2 months. Of course they want you to come in immediately after they call. Irritated because they ended up hiring an inside person even though they made me jump through hoops and end up not getting the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty laid back. Just wants to get to know you personally & how your experience fits into position.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Cabela's (Tooele, UT) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process that I experience was a mass interview. There were several hundred who had applied yet only a handful of people were selected for the positions being offered. The most stressful part of the entire situation is you could see the stack of applications left by others who had interviewed moments before you. We were farmed in one door and taken out another door and you were told that you would be notified either by phone or email. I waited nearly two months before I was contacted.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to answer a battery of questions I was asked to tell about myself, was asked why should I be hired. The interviewer wanted to know what skills that I could bring to the table, Was I willing to work long hours and how was my temperament.   1 Answer

    Interview

    There was a one and one as well as a team interview where there were drug tests and all of the usual procedures. All in all the process was quite quick and training was done rather fast once selected.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cabela's.

    Interview

    Received a phone screen and answered a few simple questions about work history, availability, etc. and scheduled an in person interview for a later date. I showed up ten minutes early to the interview, and was told to take a seat and wait. 5 minutes after the scheduled interview time, someone came up and told me the manager I was scheduled with wasn't there that day, but a different manager would be with me soon. 20 minutes later she finally showed up to interview me. Took me upstairs, fairly simple interview, same questions as the other reviews, I thought it went pretty well. She told me she would call me the next day. I received no call. I waited until the end of the week, and still no call, so I called them. Got the operator, who told me neither manager was in, and to try again later. I tried again every day for the next week and a half, leaving voicemails, talking to HR, banging my head against the wall, never receiving a call back. I have since given up and applied elsewhere. Very frustrating that they cannot even call back to say no you are not hired.

    It was a mass hiring event in Oklahoma City. We interviewed with the store management team once. Then we went over what positions were available. After that initial interview they reviewed every applicant. Then they hand picked people to extend an offer. July 2015 is when the training started at the hotel. We got an extra two weeks of training because of construction delays.
