    Interview Details

    It's mostly simple questions along with more questions about explaining what were the challenging parts of your previous employers and submitting to a drug test. Not too difficult, but it still helps if you have previous experiences because there's a good chance you'll get a decent start pay.

    Maintenance Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I applied at the store and received a call the next day to come in for an interview. So I got to the interview and it was a group interview. They led us in one by one. The first interviewer was a nice lady who asked simple questions, about 5-6 in all. Then there was a second interviewer who is the HR manager who placed me in Maintenance of all places. There was so much silence because neither of us was saying anything, so maybe that or the personality profile I filled out had something to do with them dumping me back there. He mostly asked about my previous jobs. Anyway after I left we were being briefed when one by one we got called in to hear whether or not we got a job. I got an offer for cleaning toilets at 20c above minimum wage. Whoopie! That may have been my fault since I put down that I was willing to accept $8 while my coworkers got $9.

    Interview Details

    2, interviews, one with the zone supervisor and the second with an assistant manager. They ask all the cookie cutter questions like why did you apply, what makes you think you can fulfill the position, I have seen interviews for the same position take less than one minute and they still got the job.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and interview is simple. Submit an application online then give the store a call. Ask for personnel then ask if they are hiring for that position. Night and Graveyard shifts are more likely to have open positions.
    The interview is simple, comprised of an initial interview and then a second follow up one.
    While they say that they will call back for the second interview, if you can't get it that day then your SOL and better start looking elsewhere.

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    the interview wasn't too bad. It was your general questions about what you did in a certain situation and how you handled it. I had to come back 3 times from school for 3 different interviews which was annoying and because I put my education first, I was not brought in after I was hired
