Asset Protection Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Baton Rouge, LA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in March 2013.

Interview Details – I attended a recruiting event hosted by the Market Manager for the store I ended up working in. I applied online the same day of the event. After about a week, maybe 2, I got a call from the personnel office for the store I applied to asking me to come in for an interview. The interview included the Asset Protection Manager and an Asset Protection Associate who had been on the job for a while. The questions came from a sheet and were pretty formulaic. After the interview, I was told that I would either get a call back or I wouldn't. Luckily, within a week I got a call telling me to come in for a drug test and sign consent for a background investigation. Once that was complete (background investigation), after about another week, I was called back in to begin orientation.

Interview Question – I was asked to identify a situation during my previous job experience, where I was given multiple tasks to complete within a set amount of time, and then tell how I completed the tasks.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The was no negotiation. Wal-Mart has a scale they use to determine starting pay based on your store location, job title, previous work experience, special skills and education. Take it or leave it.

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walmart in January 2011.

Interview Details – Generally after the application process you will receive a phone call for an interview with the asset protection manager and store manager at the same time. You will be asked situAtional questions, just answer by life experience. You will then get a second call generally within 2 weeks if you get the job.

Interview Question – The most difficult part is that all the questions require detailed long answers.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – You cant change the pay but i was able yo make my own schedule.

Norwalk, CT

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in December 2011.

Interview Details – I had to go through an interview with one of the assistant store managers and because I did well enough on that interview I had to schedule an interview with the Asset Protection Coordinator (recently changed to Asset Protection Manager). I then had to undergo a background check and a drug test. After passing both I was extended the offer and began with 6 weeks of training at another Wal-Mart store. The questions were very similar to the questions I have been asked in other interviews. However, when answering them you should provide answers relevant to the AP job.
