    I applied online. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Bentonville, AR) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Lack of consistency and adherence to company policy observed in interviews for multiple Associate Buyer roles. Use of interview packet seems to be optional, it is not. Observed closing and reopening of positions until the "chosen one" was in the pool.

    Team Leader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sam's Club in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. I passed leadership assessment. I received a call 2 weeks later. I missed the call and had to try on 4 separate occasions to call back over the next few days. I was put on hold a total 15 minutes over the span of those 4 calls before I got a manager to schedule a interview.

    I showed up to the interview and the hiring manager didn't even know I was coming in. And the only positions they had available were cashier and cart attendant.

    I know for a fact that I ONLY applied for leadership/ management positions. Terrible experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you interested in being a cashier or a loader?   1 Answer
