The hiring process at BJ's is pretty simple. First you need to apply online and fill out a questionnaire, after doing that you wait to hear back from them which is usually relatively fast. After the call you schedule an interview which is usually in the same week as the call. After your interview you need to go for a drug screening which can take about a week or so to get the results but after you pass that and go through orientation you are hired. On average I would say it takes about two weeks to get hired at BJ's Wholesale.

I had to go through two interviews and then orientation. Orientation is the longest process to go through but you finish it within one day. I think at the most it took me a week to get the job at bj's and go through the whole process.

About a week and they called and asked me to come in for orientation which I did where I signed all the papers and they told me what my first schedule was and gave me my name tag and vest and I started the beginning of the next week.

Alot of interviews

Answered - Cashier (Current Employee) - Allentown, PA

Report answer

90 days. Watched over for 90 days (later moved to 60) and your overall performance will impact your 90 day raise. The interview process took about a week and training took another. After about 3 weeks you are expected to sell member cards and other BJs club services to members. Depending on how well you do in the first 30 days you can move quickly through the hoops, but will ultimately depend on your performance review after the 90 days.
