Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
North York, PA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at WalMart Canada in April 2012.

Interview Details – The first step is to submit a profile on line where you have to answer around 80 questions . The questions are simple behaviour based . If you have retail experience it would be easy to answer these questions. After the online assessment there will be a telephonics interview which will take around 20 mnts .

Interview Question – What is the market share of walmart amongst all the other retail chain ?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Pay offered was not as expected . Less hours

Very Easy Interview

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I applied in-person and 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 Question – 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 online and 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.

Interview Question – Describe a conflict in your work experience and how you addressed it   Answer Question

Sales Associate Interview

Sales Associate
Hamilton, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at WalMart Canada.

Interview Details – Originally had a phone interview out of the blue (wasn't really told she just started asking questions!) about 15mins long with your usual questions. Eg when was there a time you were stressed out at work and what did you do?
Was called back about 5 days later and informed about a group interview.
The group interview consisted of 5 other applicants and a few of the managers from the store were there as well. There was some roleplaying, trying to sell an item, discussing gossiping in the work place etc.
They also told us about benefits and the store we would be working in.
Last but not least there was the speed interview questions where the managers asked each of us 3 questions moving down the line til they were done.

Interview Question – How would you handle a situation where you saw someone stealing?   Answer Question
