Asset Protection Associate Interview

Asset Protection Associate
Mobile, AL

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in November 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring was process was pretty simple. The application is entered through a kiosk inside any store in which you can choose what store or position you are applying for. I have to admit that the background check took sometime though. Other than that very easy, comfortable and satisfying. Wonderful job.

Asset Protection Associate Interview

Asset Protection Associate
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.
