I came in for a one on one interview with a manager. The interview went well and I was eventually hired.

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at WalMart Canada in February 2008.
Interview Details – during job fairs for new concept of "supercentres". Like round robin, you walk in, write up application and start interviewing immediately. Saw 3 people and was almost derailed because one interviewer didn't like an answer (q what did you like most about owning your last job?), but other inteviewers were so impressed they pushed it up to a higher level. Had a phone call and interviewed with new store manager and their superior at the site after that. Interview process changed over the years.
Interview Question – What could we improve at our current store location? View Answer
Negotiation Details – was able to negotiate only slightly. Tip: asked for credit for experience which raised it...someone told me to ask for that.
I applied online and interviewed at WalMart Canada.
Interview Details – Probably my worst interview experience, ever.
I arrived to the interview at the scheduled time of 9am and went to customer service (as directed after my phone interview). Customer service told me to have a seat and the Manager would be out to meet me. After about 15mins the customer service worker passed by me and said "ohh, I completely forgot about you".. I'm thinking "Thanks.." but I wait to see what she does. After waiting for 30mins, I hear the customer service worker yell to another worker, asking where the Manager was and a different worker (ironically, the greeter) says the Manager left to go to another store. I'm thinking in my head, what on earth is going on and maybe they are watching me on camera to test my patience. The customer service worker tells me she will contact another manager, I thank her and continue to sit there patiently (but feeling pretty impatient). I consider leaving but think to myself I should just wait it out since I’m here.
After another 15mins (now 9:45am) I go to the customer service and talk to a different worker (must have switched shifts) and tell him that someone said they would call another manager but no one has arrived and the Manager that was originally supposed to do the interview with me is not around. The customer service worker tells me that the original Manager I named is not around (well, obviously...I just told him that) and that if they said another Manager will come, then I should just wait. I tell him I've been waiting 45minutes, so he takes down my name/position applied for and makes a call. I go sit back down. The customer service guy comes up and tells me the manager will be coming in a few minutes. For a company as LARGE as Walmart, i doubt there is only 2 managers but they didn't think it was necessary to send someone who is available. By this point I am getting pretty frustrated and thinking of leaving. I'm thinking the Managers probably think I am elderly or disabled and therefore they have the right to just leave me waiting and completely disregard me as a human being (I’ll digress). By this point I am fidgeting in my seat, looking at the clock and about ready to leave and a manager (the 2nd one) finally comes and greets me saying "you're here for the interview?!" and gives a kind of sly smile. Of course, no apology. She arrives smelling like cigarettes, so there was enough time to go on a smoke instead of conducting an interview.
As we go to the interview room she asks me how far I live, I tell her and then she says: "so you would be able to come at 7am on a sunday" I just reply "I'm pretty punctual and of course I would be here" (not even thinking in my head that they were 1hour late until after I said it). I wasn't trying to be rude but of course I would come on time for a shift. The manager tells me to go to the empty room and she would be there. I go to the room and the lights off so I have to fumble around looking for the switch.
Finally, we sit down for the interview and I am asked a multitude of questions, none of which are directly related to the position I applied for. I answered all questions relating to my previous work experience and then think of how i could have possibly answered these related to the position as greeter. I do my best and answer each question in detail. She asks me my availabilities and I tell her OPEN/CLOSE on weekends and 5-close weekdays and she interjects and says “you can’t start at 3:30p?” when I had originally told the first manager during my phone interview my availabilities. If I had known I had to be there for 3:30pm I would not have come for the 2nd interview. The interview lasted 10 minutes and the manager says I would get a call by the original Manager who was supposed to conduct the interview. Not sure if that is even appropriate since she couldn't even bother with the interview but would be telling me if I got the job?
I am just thinking in my head what would happen if I came to an interview 10mins late...
Interview Question – Almost all questions were unexpeceted. -Situation in which I had to problem solve, meet deadlines, etc- Nothing related to the actual position as a greeter. I figured they would ask me about shoplifters, orienting myself with the store since I would be the first point of contact, etc... nothing. Answer Question

Interview Details – You have to apply online. After, they call you and conduct a brief phone interview. If they like you, youll get another call back to go in for a group interview which is very similar to speed networking. After that, you'll get another call back to meet with the store manager and be offered your position. That's where they tell you about wages. You then have to wait until their next orientation date and then youll be working.
Interview Question – During the group interview, there was role playing where you grouped up with one or two other applicants and worked out certain situations. My group had to sell an iron to a father. Answer Question
