Walmart Pharmacy Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WalMart Canada.
Interview Details – I applied online for a cashier position and the process took 2 weeks
about 4 days after I applied (for a cashier position, not pharmacy sales) I received a phone call from a department manager from Walmart who did a phone interview right there. It consisted of basic questions such as my availability and experience, and also some more challenging ones such as a time when I've been under stress. It took a total of about 20 minutes, and at the end of it she asked me to come in to the store two days later for a group interview
The group interview took about 2 hours and it was actually pretty fun. There were about 7 of us applicants, and we were all there for different positions- there were three there for the auto department, two for overnight stock, and two of us for cashier. We started out by talking to the person next to us and then introducing them to the rest of the group, and then the department manager running the interview told us all about Walmart, the employee benefits, etc. Then we had a speed interview, where 7 more managers came into the room and sat in chairs across from the applicants so that we each had someone in front of us, and each manager would ask the applicant in front of them a question, the applicant would have 1 minute to answer, and then they would rotate so that each applicant was asked 7 questions; it was sorta like speed dating. I appreciated it because it was a lot less stressful than a one-on-one interview, and it was a pretty casual environment. They told us they would call us within 48 hours and tell us if they wanted us, and I was called back within a day and asked to come in in a few days and fill out a background check. As it turns out, I was too young for the background check, so instead she just checked my references and then called me back a couple days later and asked me to come in on Friday to meet the Store Manager.
I went in on Friday and the store manager just asked me two questions- "tell me about yourself" and "why did you choose Walmart". I answered them and then she said that she would like to offer me a job in the pharmacy, and that it has higher pay than cashier. I was very surprised because I had applied for a cashier position, not a pharmacy, but I was happy to accept. I then filled out some paperwork, and I was told that I would start orientation the next week.
Interview Question – "Tell me about a time when you were under stress and how you dealt with it"
