    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cabela's (Coeur d'Alene, ID) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Two interviewee (heads of the department) interview you, taking turns asking questions about your work history, experience. Seamless, basic questions, they want to gauge your response to differing scenarios. If you don't have much work experience, you can reply (be creative) as if this were to happen... how you would respond.

    Interview Questions

    • Pick from a short list of items (pictures, with an actual list) and sell this to an actual customer. The more descriptive and on target you are the better. I have test anxiety so I don't think I did too well, but it should have been a no brainer. However if you have something else in mind, another product you are familiar with you can "sell" that as well.   1 Answer
