    Interview Details

    to be honest I have been to two interviews for walmart in the last three months and i fill I'm not getting the job because i live to far, i was kind of told that in the last interview. i don't mind being ask question at all, but men don't give women that same time frame as they do men.I know I'm up in Age middle age but they look at you and see only one thing she's going to be slow or maybe can't do the job.That's how i felt walking out after the interview. and that's not me I love working and i love being at my job.

    Interview Details

    It was typical interview. They asked the 55 basic questions.
    They really focus on how to handle angry customers and conflict resolution while still wanting you to maintain company policy.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult or unexpected question had to be How would you handle an customer who was trying to use an improper coupon but insisted that you were in the wrong?
      I tried my best to remember the customer is always right yet company policy does not allow one to simply override the system.

    Interview was typical background/tell me about yourself questions. Talked to hiring manager about the positions available and what kind of work I've done in the past. I submitted an application through the website and got called back two weeks later for an opening at a different location than I applied for.

    Walmart Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    When Store #5218 first opened I obtained a job here. Surprisingly Walmart's interviewing process is quite thorough. There was an ethical assessment, drug test, and other standards but they asked pointed questions. They tried to demonstrate that they took hiring employees seriously. However, years later they became slack in the interview process. They would rehire associates that had committed crimes and were arrested there at Walmart (which is okay, but it makes the company look bad). They had new CSM's who would not train cashiers to reuse bags and for a week we ran out of bags and had to use the larger bags which have a lower tensile strength. All of these issues have since, I suspect, changed since I was there, however. But if I were to do it again, I would have asked specifically what would be my expectations for gaining entry to higher positions once I was hired from a lower position.

    Interview Questions
    • It was actually not as relaxed as I thought. I don't remember specific questions but they take it seriously at the interview.   Answer Question
