Order Filler Interview

Anonymous Employee
Palestine, TX

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – Very friendly atmosphere for the interview. No pressure, basic interview questions. You will start with a phone interview and then be invited in for an in person interview. I believe there was only one in person interview and then I received a job offer. You will have to do a drug test and background check.

Difficult Interview

Co-Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
San Antonio, TX

I applied through other source and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart in March 2010.

Interview Details – Getting an interview as an hourly associate is pretty much easy. You do have to apply for the job you desire before it becomes available. I started as an overnight stocker and moved up from there. As I moved up to salary manager I went through an interview with the market human resource manager. I then had a second interview with the market manager to be promoted to assistant manager. For Co-Manager I had the same interviews and also had a walk through on the backroom operations. You are graded by a store manager and either the H.R. Market manager or the Market Manager. Then if qualified they will submit your name and ratings to home office for approval.

Interview Question – During the walk through for Co-Manager be as detailed on the notes you give from inventory in the bins to cleanliness behind the machines and corners.   Answer Question

Deli Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Concord, NH

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in October 2010.

Interview Details – Hiring process was really quick. I received a phone call and was scheduled for an interview. The first one was pretty simple, just 5 questions that I could answer based on work, school or personal experience. Then I had an interview with an assistant manager. And that went well. They called my references and gave me my job offer.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to communicate with another person to solve a problem. How did you communicate what needed to be done? How was the problem solved?   Answer Question

Customer Service Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Walmart in August 2012.

Interview Details – If selected, you will receive a phone call from the Personnel manager to come in for an interview. When interviewing, you sit with two hourly associates that ask a series of questions having to do with the retail work environment. If you get passed through that interview, you follow up with an interview with the salaried manager who asks very similar questions to the preliminary ones. If selected through that interview, you get sent for a drug test either that day or following days and a background check.

Interview Question – Tell us about a time when you went above and beyond the call of duty to accomplish a task.   Answer Question
