    Got called to come in and interview. Interviewed with a newly promoted supervisor. Was asked all the standard open ended questions any other place would ask. Passed and was told they'd call me back for a second interview.

Answered a few more questions. Got hired and was sent off to do a drug test. The interview and drug test took about 3 hours as a whole.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sam's Club (Pearl City, HI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Interview appointment was set for 1:00 but didnt take place untill 1:30. Interview took about 10 minutes and the interviewer was nice. Super friendly and made me feel more calm during the interview as opposed to how nervous i was at the beginning. Ended the interview on a good note but they could have been more organized planning the interview as me and another interviewee were waiting for half an hour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Sam's Club (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    It took a long time. The managers and supervisors were both late to the interview. It is very scripted as well. The second interview I did with the company was pathetic. It was very scripted and then I was told they were still doing interviews and that I'd hear back later. The next day I found out I was supposed to have my second interview but no one ever communicated that to me.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview

    I applied online and was asked to the interview. The HR person who was supposed to interview me never showed, so someone from the backery conducted the interview. They weren't even from the department that I applied to. I was asked a lot of long winded, complicated questions read off a sheet about past experiences working with people. The interview was conducted in the heating room. I got no call back, even though they said that they would. Do not apply here. They will waste your time.

    It happened in one day... I sat down with HR and a manager... It was simple generic questions. It was a good part time job... Just be honest when it comes to what days you want to work because they have enough people and they can work around your schedule
