Produce Department Manager Interview

Produce Department Manager
Fayetteville, NC

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Walmart in March 2013.

Interview Details – The initial interview is a one on one basic interview. They have a hiring packet that they use and read you one of two questions for 5 sections. They are questions like "Describe a time when you used good judgment in handling a difficult situation...What were the circumstances? What policies or procedures did you use to make your decision? What was the outcome? The second Interview was a panel interview where they asked you more questions like that in front of 3 or 4 people of management.

Interview Question – "Describe a time when you used good judgment in handling a difficult situation...What were the circumstances? What policies or procedures did you use to make your decision? What was the outcome?   Answer Question

Department Manager Interview

Department Manager

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

Interview Details – There will be two interviews taken place. The first is from a lower level member of management. The second from a higher level. They each ask a series of intertwined questions that have several questions within each. The first manager will either pass you on to the next manager or they will not depending on their level of interest.

Interview Question – All the questions are very difficult. Just try to focus on the question as a whole not the individual questions within. Most of the managers are pretty laid back so feeling extremely nervous is unnecessary.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There really wasn't any negotiating. They said this is what you will make and they kind of make you feel like it is that or nothing. There is always someone else who will do the job for that pay. Of course they don't say that.
