    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview

    Relatively simple. STAR type questions. They don't care about your answers per say, just your ability to answer. Drug Tested after initial offer. Background checks are slow. They do not care about your credit. Be honest on your application, as I am sure some of you are wondering.

    Interview Questions

    • STAR questions are challenging. Interviews are a numbers game. Apply over and over at many locations before you get a call. Don't give up.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Nashville, TN) in September 2013.

    Interview

    You get asked about 10 situational in depth questions about different scenarios. You will also get questioned on experience in running multi million dollar facilities. It helps to speak to prior experience in the field and be specific and talk about successes.

    Interview Questions

    • Don't remember specific questions but some include ethical decisions, going above and beyond to help someone, safety and security.   1 Answer

    Interview

    It was pretty easy. Asked all situational questions. They are expecting you to answer with the star model. Be prepared to get hired if you nail the first two interviews. Remember this is retail management no matter what position you are hired for.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't remember the questions, just that they were situation based.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There isn't a negotiation phase. you start at the base. There is a regional pay adjustment if you work in a metro area.
