    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at WalMart Canada.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a position online, a few days later I was called for a phone interview (at 9:30pm, who does that?) simple and easy questions for really anyone. After that I was asked to come in for a group Interview.

    During the group interview we had to get together with a partner and ask them questions, introduce them to the group, pretty basic stuff. You're asked to sell the Walmart Rewards Mastercard to your partner to see how open you were to talking to a stranger.

    The next day I got a call saying I got the job! Although it wasnt actually an offer for the cash position, it was for a part time cash manager. I turned it down saying I'd rather do just cash for now, and would possibly move up in a few months.

    I'm currently waiting for my call for orientation.

    Electronics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingston, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at WalMart Canada in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    It started out by applying online and doing a test which took anywhere from 20 minutes to half an hour.

    Two or three weeks passed when I got a call from a manager. He asked if I was still interested in working for Walmart and then proceeded to ask me some questions such as "Why do you want to work for Walmart?" etc. He then invited me to a group interview the next day.

    I wore a tucked in dress shirt and pants (not jeans) for the interview. To my surprise, the other four applicants dressed as if they had just come off the street; a couple of them were visibly taken aback by my apparel. When we got inside to the training room, there were 5 or 6 managers sitting on one side of the room and there were 10 empty chairs on the other side. The managers were dressed just as I was (plus a tie) so I felt at ease that I wasn't "over-dressed". Five of the chairs had name-tags on them (for us). The managers introduced themselves in a very nice, laid back manner. A couple of them seemed nervous themselves. We were eventually told to learn about the other people in the room and teach the managerial panel about them. The two women paired up and the three of us men just grouped together. After presenting our new acquaintances, we were given some information about the Walmart working environment and why its a great place to work.

    We were later paired off into three groups (a manager paired with one of us) and were instructed to create a scenario where one person is a customer is being difficult about a product, and the other is a sales associate who resolves the situation. The products provided were humorous: some Star Wars slippers, an infant's mirror, etc. When me and my partner acted out our scenario I made some joke about the alternative slippers being "only available in Invisible" or something to that effect and made the room laugh, which was a good stress reliever for everyone.

    Afterwards, we were briefly educated on the nature of the Walmart MasterCard. Then, to our surprise, we were told to "sell it" to one of the managers. We barely had enough information retained about it so this proved most difficult, although they seemed pretty relaxed about it and encouraged the couple of people who had forgotten a major element. Then we did a "Speed Date" interview where each manager had a few questions they got to ask each person. Each person also got to fill out their availability. They told us that if we were available for an entire day, to just leave that day blank. When that was done, a manager geared it down and explained how every meeting ends with the "Walmart Cheer" - which basically consists of spelling Walmart and including the store number somewhere. And doing it very, very loudly. We were dismissed after that and told we would receive a call the next day as to whether we were hired or not.

    The next day (Friday) came and passed. The weekend went by without a call. It was on the Monday when I was out of the house that they called. The message said to call so-and-so back before 4:00. I called five times before the automated machine would actually get me through to an associate. I asked for so-and-so and they asked me if I would come in for "a third and final interview" the next day at 11, which was strange because I had only been to one interview. I showed up the next day on what happened to be Remembrance Day, so there was a moment of silence at 11. Twenty minutes later a man came out, shook my hand and led me back to the training room to a meeting table. He dismissed two others who were sitting there and he essentially gave me a rundown of my starting wage ($11.50) and my job description (electronics department). He made a remark along the lines of "So I guess electronics is more in your field, huh?" - which was correct. However, in the previous interview I had indicated that I have no preference of position, and there was no indication given that my field of interest was technology. This is also my first 'job' to speak of, previously being self-employed. I glanced at the stack of paper under his hand and realized it was full of information about me; people and organizations I have been associated with, events I have been a part of, and more. I still wonder how they could get so much data on a person.

    I was required to fill out a background check and three references. He brought up my availability and said, "So it looks like you're not available on the weekends?" I informed him that I was available all day on the weekends, and that the managers previously said that leaving it blank indicated full availability. At this, he shook his head vigorously and said "no, no, no... you want to put 7 to 11." He also explained how they no longer hired just for the Christmas season, and the only way I could really be terminated around that time is if I really, really sucked at my job. They called my references later that week and scheduled an orientation date.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were too difficult, but the Walmart MasterCard one was the most unexpected. Doing a bit of research beforehand on the Walmart MasterCard should save you any anxiety when it gets to that point.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Minimum wage was recently raised to $11/hour, and my starting wage was at $11.50. He informed me that if I did well it wouldn't be hard for me to get raises. I was content with this so I accepted.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barrie, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at WalMart Canada in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Had to do an assessment test. Received a call a few days later asking me to come in and see someone from management. I was surprised that there was no interview, so I guess that if you pass the assessment test, you don't need to go for an interview. They can figure out who you are from the assessment test. This is JUST a guess so I don't know for certain if that's the case.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Seems they were desperate for people (they were hiring 40 temporary part-time sales associates) and the manager asked about availability. BTW, the manager was straightforward, calm, and very friendly.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Part-time at this Walmart location means weekends from Friday evenings - Sunday evenings. Full-time positions are for Mondays-Fridays. The WalMart I applied to was open from 7am-11pm seven days a week. Shifts vary and that didn't work for me.
