    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Red Deer, AB (Canada)) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Apply online pass a test, brief telephone interview, 1 on 1 interview, 4 hour intense orientation. One on one interview was not in a private setting which I found odd - people coming and going.

    No salary negotiation, however I did tell them what days and hours I wanted to work.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Barrie, ON (Canada)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had to do an assessment test. Received a call a few days later asking me to come in and see someone from management. I was surprised that there was no interview, so I guess that if you pass the assessment test, you don't need to go for an interview. They can figure out who you are from the assessment test. This is JUST a guess so I don't know for certain if that's the case.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Seems they were desperate for people (they were hiring 40 temporary part-time sales associates) and the manager asked about availability. BTW, the manager was straightforward, calm, and very friendly.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Part-time at this Walmart location means weekends from Friday evenings - Sunday evenings. Full-time positions are for Mondays-Fridays. The WalMart I applied to was open from 7am-11pm seven days a week. Shifts vary and that didn't work for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Markham, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    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?

    Interview Questions

    • Completing the long online questionnaire was the hard part.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My advice to others is to make sure your available to work often.

    There were 2 interviews (preliminary and final). If you receive a call after the interview, then you come back to accept their job offer. Once you have signed the job offer, you need to take and pass several WHMIS modules before they allow you to go on the floor with the vest and ID.
