    Home Decor Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Johnstown, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Scheels (Johnstown, CO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Totally unprofessional. My first interview went great, I was told I would have a second interview. You have to take a lengthy written test, which is pretty intense for a job paying you $10/hr. The second interview manager was extremely rude, only wanted to give me 8 hours a week?!!! That's not even worth my gas to get there. They are just a company wanting to a hire a ton of super part time employees rather than anyone full time so that they don't have to pay benefits. There is absolutely no communication between management, I was told in my first interview that they would work with my schedule, then turns out the second manager says they couldn't. They basically only want people to work weekends so they can go home and don't have to. At the end of it all they sent me an email a week after the interview to tell me they weren't offering me the position. So unprofessional and impersonal. Put a horrible taste in my mouth to be honest don't even think I will shop here or recommend it to my friends and family. Extremely disappointing, I had heard great things about working for this place.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Scheels (Johnstown, CO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Initial interview was a phone call with basic questions about job history. Second interview was with HR, questions about my hobbies, volunteer work, favorite product that scheels sells. Make sure you have done research on the company, and what they sell, and their culture of giving back. After second interview I was given the aptitude test. You must do some simple math, correct some sentences with grammar and spelling mistakes and write a paragraph letter to a customer. Third interview was asking what strengths and weaknesses I'd bring to the cashier job. And at the end they offered me 2 different positions to choose from since I was a good fit for both.

    Sales Associate Firearms Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Scheels in May 2017.

    Interview

    Most ridiculous hiring process I have ever been through. 3 interviews and a written test for a job that pays near to $10 per hour? Not only that, I have 30+ years experience with firearms, been shooting all my life and was telling the manager facts about manufacturers that he didn't even know, and they still didn't hire me! I don't know exactly what level of personnel they are hiring but it sure isn't or shouldn't be the type that will settle for $10/hr.
