    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sam's Club in January 2017.

    Interview

    They asked too many personal questions and they were very unfriendly. They also seemed in a big hurry to get the other applicants in and just didn't take their time. I felt they don't care much on who they hire. They are not consistent on the questions asked.

    Greeter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Homewood, AL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to Sam's Club, about 1-2 months ago. I got a phone call Friday about doing an interview. While on the phone, the lady asked my availability (even though she was looking at my application while on the phone with me). I told her I was currently working, but was looking for something FULL TIME. She then goes on to say "well we can't even go forward because you don't have open availability". So she then schedules me ANYWAY. Fast forward to the day of the interview, I get there 10 mins early and I still had to wait an extra 15 mins before the interviewer was ready. She didn't even acknowledge me, she had an employee (who was sweeping the floor) tap me on the arm and point at her. She then proceeds to walk at a fast pace, and I damn near had to jog to catch up to her. I introduce myself and she didn't even say anything. We take the stairs up and then she taps me on the shoulder and says "we don't wear our arms out, that's inappropriate". I am looking at her crazy, because my shirt was a professional shirt, it was a sleeveless blouse. So we sit down and yet again, my availability is brought up again EVEN THOUGH I discussed this with the previous lady. So then she says with an attitude "well we don't need someone with a set schedule, and I'm not going to even interview you because it would be wasting my time and yours". I felt disrespected and it honestly was a waste of my time because I actually came prepared for an interview. This is the LAKESHORE SAM'S CLUB (HOMEWOOD, AL). Terrible interviewer!! You can't treat someone who doesn't even work for you like that. I will never shop at that location again. Thanks for reading!

    Cashier Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Lubbock, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    After applying online, I received a phone call to schedule an interview. We agreed on a specific date and time and that was that. I arrived at the store 10 minutes early for my interview. A worker told me to wait in the cafe area while they go get the manager. I waited for an entire hour until I asked another worker to ask for the manager. That worker told me, again, to wait in the cafe area while they went to go get them. I waited another 30 minutes. Again, I asked an employee for the manager. That employee said the manager was out for the day.

    So all I have to say is "Thanks, Sam's Club for wasting 2 hours of my day for no reason!"

    Interview

    At the time there had been several failed candidates from within Sam's Club, so they decided to hire from outside the company. With that, their came more than the average amount of interviews. One with a Supervisor then a manager the first day. Next was with the actual department manager and Club manager the next day. After that, I interviewed with the Market Manager for technology. It was intense but I did well and got the position.

    the interview was all hypothetical questions about past experiences working at a job. Was not based on knowledge, experience, or time with company. It was done in break-room at centrally located club by the regional directors of various departments. Already had the position for several years and had good evaluations. Everyone had to interview from new hires to twenty + associates in those positions. Most decisions were already "penciled" in but they had to be correct in equal opportunities legally.
