Cashier Associate Interview

Cashier Associate
Oceanside, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Walmart in August 2010.

Interview Details – Application is on the internet. There are NO paper applications. You will need to create a login ID because it is a long process, as you pass each phase. There is a section that will require you answer over 60 questions. If you can't finish in one sitting, that's okay. You can stop, log out, and go back later. It will take you where you left off. If there are positions, and your application is selected, you will be called in for an initial interview. That goes well, there maybe a couple of more interviews. Do NOT try to contact the store to follow up on your application or interview. You will only annoy these people and put your chance of being hired at risk. They are very busy and don't have time for inquiries. Just go back on a regular basis (once a month or so) and find something to update on the application to keep it active.

Interview Question – Be prepared to give examples on how you handled certain situations; how you helped someone you didn't have to, there's too much work but it has to get done by a certain deadline - how did you do it, how were you able to resolve an angry person to remedy the situation. You need give real life examples. They don't have to be work related experiences.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very limited. I was lucky at the time I was hired because it was more flexible. But pay and availability are part of a regulated corporate structure, so management only have so much at their disposal to offer.

Wal Mart Cashier Interview

Wal Mart Cashier
Port Charlotte, FL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in March 2014.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from Personnel asking if I was still interested in a position at their store. I set up a time to come in for an interview. When I arrived for the interview, I had to review some paperwork beforehand. I felt nervous but confident that I would get this job. I spoke to a supervisor for my first interview who asked me 3 questions. She was a little asian lady who was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She seemed to be very satisfied with my answers and said I would be a great fit for the company. I was told to wait for a few minutes and soon the assistant manager came in. He asked me if I had any questions and I jokingly said, "Yeah, am I hired?" He proceeded to tell me I would be going to the next room over to get set up to do a drug test. I knew immediately that I had the job! Easiest interview experience ever!

Interview Question – None. You'd have to be an idiot to not know the answers to the questions they asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. It was either take it or leave it.
