    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at WalMart Canada.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and received a call in 2-3 weeks (phone interview) questions were very basic, then they told me to come in for a group interview. There were at least 4 others in my group interview but the interview was comfortable. Managers asked each individual to tell everybody a bit about themselves and then conducted a small 1-on-1 interview for about 5 mins with each person.

    Phone interview Questions: (can't remember all, things might have changed)

    1. Give me an example of a time when your team member or customer was giving you a hard time and how did you handle it?

    2. How do you deal with pressure or a tough day at work?

    3. What does customer service mean to you?

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at WalMart Canada in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Fairly thorough and intensive, despite that they seem to hire just about anyone....they do a back ground check and the usual interview type questions. Still people who have no desire to work, don't speak English and obviously don't care about working there are still hired and are dead weight once hired

    Interview Questions
    • The usual questions: Name a situation where you had to decide between 2 difficult options/scenarios/dilemma   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Not much room for negotiating....minimum wage type salaries

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at WalMart Canada in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    There are three interview stages. The initial gives you an idea of what you'll be doing. The next two get you to speak with different managers and find out if you are flawed too severely to work at Walmart.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WalMart Canada in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview was far different than other interviews that I have been to. The first stage was similar to the multiple mini interviews that certain professional programs at universities have. It consisted of a short conversation at one of the rotating stations. After that there were group presentations that assessed your ability to work in a team.
