    Receiving Associate/Unloader Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, AL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Took one week after application to get a call. When I walked in, I was given a tour of the backroom. After that I was interviewed by an assistant manager, then the second interview right after that with 3 assistant managers. Only one of the three assistant managers asked the questions, pretty easy scenario questions. I was called in the next day just to be told I had got the job and told I had to get a drug test within 24 hours. I was told I would be a overnight stocker, but was changed to unloader the next day at orientation. Orientation was extremely boring, just sit around for 8 hours. The next day was CBL's(computer based learning), which was another 8 hours of sitting, but you get paid for it. Was hired temporary for the holidays, but they decided to keep a few of us

    Interview Questions
    • None really, just be ready to answer about 10 scenario questions, twice.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Most of the assistant managers are people like you and me who struggle working long hours with not nearly enough pay for their lifestyle. So if you plan to get an interview soon with Walmart, just understand that we're all in the same boat here and they just want to find a person as reliable as themselves who need the work as much as they do. Pretend you're talking with yourself trying to explain to yourself why you need the job and what you're good at. They want to say yes as much as you do. So the process is fairly easy, same old questions about "what did you do in this and that situation?" "Tell me a time you used teamwork" ...etc. IF you had an interview with any company before then this one is no different. Just remember they are people too, just tell them what they want to hear, and be sincere.

    Interview Questions
    • I can't recall one with Walmart since by the time I got an interview with them I was ready for what they were gonna ask me more or less. The only difficult question is one you can't relate a story too, for example: When was a time where you put the customer before your needs? Now, have you ever went late to your brake spending thirty minutes helping a customer find something, or walked away from something important to assist somebody? Any numerous scenarios either find themselves in your head, but they as you to recall a time. But there are as many times as not, but sometimes you forget all those times you helped someone, you know, trying not to be self-centered and all. So, just imagine the most thing you did to help someone, like finding an item or directing them, or helping them out, or offering a discount, and sort of add what you sacrificed on your part in order to help them. Point is they want to hear a story when you went out of your way.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Walmart in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    You absolutely need to call them, I had to do it twice just to be told to come in for an interview. The interviewing process is cumbersome, I had two different managers ask me the same set of questions in the same interview session. They do a background check on you so be sure you come clean about any bad marks in your past. If you live in Minnesota you can get a copy of the background check, it's pretty neat.

    If you get hired you have to do a couple of days of CBLs which basically tell you, in a nutshell, about walmart and your job. Most of it is common sense though.

    There is no negotiating with a corporation as large as walmart. They don't have any unions and make you watch a rather funny anti-union video during orientation.
