    Interview

    questions are very long, all the care about is that you answer them using the STAR method, listen very carefully first time question is asked then ask them to repeat questions so you have more time to think of an appropriate answer (you will not be docked for this and you will come across a lot smarter with thorough answers)

    Interview Questions

    • give an example of a time you had to deal with a controversial situation, what was the situation, who did you involve, how did you go about it, what was the outcome, what information did you use to make a decision what if anything would you do different in the future   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart in April 2014.

    Interview

    My hiring process was very unique. I was asked to come in for an interview by a local store manager. The first two rounds were with the store manager then the market human resources manager. The third round of interviews was with the Regional Talent and Acquisition team. They would have preferred the interview to be in person but I was busy with school work and did it over the phone instead. I got a job offer a week later and was told I needed to pass a drug test and a background check to confirm my status of employment.

    Interview Questions

    • They were very bare bones and wanted answers that showed I got results and if I was capable to get what they needed despite my age. They had no qualms about as king direct questions of me.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was told I had no negotiation power

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Walmart (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    I went in for an interview for overnight dairy associate for some extra money. The Assistant doing my interview noticed my qualifications and suggested to the market hr manager that I be considered for ASM. The initial interview was just with the assistant. Then I got called back to interview with the Market HR and a group interview with 2 store managers. The entire process after the 2 weeks I waited for the dairy interview, was about 3 weeks. I started an 6 week training program shortly after my offer. The initial salary is 38,000, however you can earn additional salary from being outside walmart and having "hiring credits" I got the first hiring credit that bumped me to 41,800

    Interview Questions

    • They are multi-questioned interviews. The only one I recall is What experience can you share where you had to deal with a difficult customer? What was the experience? What was the problem? What tools did you use to resolve the problem? and How did you handle the situation?   1 Answer
