Easy Interview

AFDP Interview

AFDP
Bentonville, AR

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in October 2013.

Interview Details – Initial communication came from networking with fellow alumni. After that, I received an interview down at their Headquarters, which was behavior based, and then the following week I received an offer. The actual interview was with two directors, and they were very engaging interviewers. I got a full tour of the whole facility on top of it.

Negotiation Details – Nothing was negotiable.

Director Interview

Director
Bentonville, AR

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in June 2014.

Interview Details – This was the most professional hiring experience I've ever gone through. Everything was quick, transparent and painless. I was flown in first class. Put up in a hotel with a rental car. Had meals paid for. After I put in my application I was contacts about 8 hours later. There after I had an initial screening interview where we talked about salary and expectations. From there I talked with the hiring manager. Within a few hours I received and mail mentioning that they would like to fly me out to interview and meet the team. I had a really good experience while in Bentonville. The first night I went out to dinner with the hiring manager - he came to my hotel and picked me up. The next day I meet about 5 senior people within the capacity - all were really nice. The hiring manager and I went to lunch with another one of the capacity leaders and talked about the work, but also current events. Later that day I got a tour with in the area from a real-estate agent who was really nice and showed me around NWA - both in terms of buying/renting a house/flat. Very impressed with everyone in the entire process.

Interview Question – I work in a niche field, and am a bit of a leader in it despite being under 30. The most difficult thing isn't the questions, it's always figuring out what people know or what's relevant to the person you are talking with. Some know a lot, other not too much about the technical details. This is how the job is, so being able to empathize is key for the the interview as well as the job itself. I think showing that you can empathize with professionals as well as non-sector personnel is key.. As always   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Got an email that wanted to clarify what it would take money wise for me to get me to Arkansas. Initially I was a bit confused because in the first interview we went over monetary stuff - which was good. I gave my two cents mentioning how I thought it was comparable to market rates and was happy with the amount, although in some markets I could get a bit more. They came back with a formal offer that was about 12% higher than the number initially discussed so I was pleased about that.

Ecommerce Interview

Ecommerce
Bentonville, AR

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walmart in January 2012.

Interview Details – Interview process is pretty standard. You'll have a typical pre-screen with an HR representative with typical questions like why were you interested in this position, why do you want to leave your current role. Then it proceeds to another HR rep. From there it moved to interview with Hiring Manager. Then final interview with a group of peers and senior level staff. It went fast enough, but not too rapid fire.

Interview Question – No difficult questions that I can think of. Some interviewers use the behavior based interviewing techniques.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much room to negotiate salary and the relocation benefits,healthcare, salary, stock, vacation were all locked in stone with no negotiation. No severance package could be negotiated and neither could a sign on bonus. However, when the housing market went south, senior leaders were flexible and fair.

Very Difficult Interview

Financial Planner Interview

Financial Planner
Bentonville, AR

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – Original on boarding took me approx. 3 months and multiple interviews. Must work through recruiting and interview at least twice before being offered an entry level position. To move up into a management position you must then interview with a panel made up of 3-4 managers, including the hiring manager for the position being applied for.

Interview Question – In general questions are long, multiple questions, and they require VERY detailed explanations including actual metrics and numbers in the instance you choose.
Ex. (Actual interview question)
Describe a time when you managed an area that was not achieving the necessary results. What did you to ensure the accomplishment of critical goals?
*What results were not being achieved?
*What did you do that succeeded? What didn't?
*How did you measure success?
*What was the outcome?
*How did you sustain this level of performance over time?

Senior Manager Finance & Strategy Interview

Senior Manager Finance & Strategy
Bentonville, AR

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in November 2012.

Interview Details – The first interview was conducted on campus. It consisted of a straightforward case question (much easier than consulting) that presented a retail-oriented situation, and required lots of "retail math". They then asked lots of behavioral questions. Once on site, there was also a presentation to do in front of a panel of VPs.

Interview Question – Case presentation at HQ.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Since it was through on campus recruiting, only the relocation package was negotiable.

Intern - Realty Management Graduate Position Interview

Intern - Realty Management Graduate Position
Bentonville, AR

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – Submitted application and then was sent a Greenjob Interview, which is essentially a pre-screen that the hiring managers review and then decide on who they want to extend a live Greenjob interview/in-person interview to. Don't worry about the in-person interview unless you live in the area. They make decisions following the live Greenjob/in-person interview.

Interview Question – Very straightforward questions about your past experiences and how they fit into the role you're applying for. They may ask you something that your experience may not specifically fit into, but they're looking for you to adapt what experience you do have to fit the mold of that particular question.   Answer Question
