    Interview consisted of 3 interviews, first the supervisor, 2nd manager, 3rd store manager. Typical scenario/situational questions. All interviews completed in same day. Saw other applicants that had to wait over an hour to get interviewed, luckily I only had to wait about 10 minutes. Anyone should be able to do well in these interviews

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Sam's Club in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted for an interview about 4 days later. Overall the process was short and to the point. The interview consisted of very basic situational and background questions relevant to the department I applied for. I interviewed with three supervisors, but only one really asked me questions. The other supervisors sort of outlined the duties and expectations for the job. I was asked to submit a drug test and background check. The next morning I got an offer and was scheduled for orientation. If you have work experience in retail the entire process is a breeze.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Sam's Club.

    Interview

    There was no interview. It was literally "Take it or leave it, your choice." You sit in a room with a manager after waiting downstairs for them to meet with you. Then you are put in a room with all the other applicants, and that is your first day. There is no grace period and they do not allow you two weeks to leave any other positions.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you willing to cover any hours assigned to you? If there are extra hours available, can you come in and cover them?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sam's Club (Salisbury, MD (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Really easy, there were a total of 3 interviews, which were done on the same day. The first interview was normal behavior questions, the second was the same but towards the end they want you to walk around the store with them while they ask you more questions. The last interview was with the store manager, I went into the office she asked me "so what brings you to Sam's Club today?". After that she really just asked whether I was in school, what I majored in, and she just explained the responsibilities of the job. Then she gave me my drug screening info to go do.
