    There were two different one on one interviews before I was given my offer. First with the supervisor of the department, then the manager of Hardlines.

    Connection Center Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Goldsboro, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Goldsboro, NC) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Started as cashier, the easiest way for people to get hired into Sam's Club, then moved into my current position with cell phones. Was called to set up an interview, interview with 3 supervisors: Member Services manager, COS (check out supervisor), and the Marketing Manager. It was a short interview that lasted about 15-20 minutes, if that. Just asking about basic work experience, if I would be fine with the requirements of the job, and if I had any experience selling (part of jobs at Sam's Club is to sell their credit card and Plus membership upgrades). They asked me to role play in a scenario and sell them something (anything). It was a pretty informal interview off of a list of questions (still dress nice though, I did). They sent me to HR to get a drug test form, which I then went and did afterwards and they said that I would hear within about a week. I didn't hear anything back, so I called HR and she said that I had definitely gotten the job and they were waiting to contact me to make my final offer and set up orientation til they hired a few more people with me and they would contact me within about one more week to set that up (and they did).

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They offer you a price based on your years of experience -- hourly wages are based on 7 tiers. You get about an extra $.25 for each year of experience you have. After that, the only way to get a pay raise is by moving into a higher paying position, and you get an annual raise anywhere between about $.25-.60 based on your department manager's recommendation. They will ALWAYS notify you when you get pay change.
