Interviewer: Please describe your job title and primary duties.
Sam’s Club Employee: I was stock and I was cashier.
Interviewer: What was the work environment like?
Sam’s Club Employee: In the stockroom, it wasn’t as hectic or rushed because all I had to do was just put everything up and put stuff where it needed to be and clean up. Cashier… it was pretty normal except for around the first of the month, everybody is coming in, doing all their shopping, so it’s busy then.
Interviewer: What was your favorite part about working there?
Sam’s Club Employee: I really liked doing the cashier. I like seeing all the different people who are coming in. Because Sam’s Club has such big quantities of everything, I’m just like, “Wow.” I just get to look at it and see what everyone is doing, I just try to imagine, “I wonder what they’re doing?”, if they’re about to have a party or about to have a cookout. They would buy loads.
Interviewer: Please describe a typical day as an employee.
Sam’s Club Employee: During the stock, it was pretty much at night, and there wasn’t too much going on. But during the cashier, it was just wake up, come in, get myself together, and get on my drawer.
Interviewer: How would you describe the application and interview process?
Sam’s Club : It was pretty simple. I mean, I was young, so my mother helped me. It was kind of long ago. It wasn’t that difficult.
