Application Details

I applied in-person - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details

The interview was scripted and the other asset protection associates questioned me. The asset protection manager did not ask questions but only observed the process. The employees were surprised I wore a suit. After the interview was complete, I was told that I would receive a phone call if I got the position. Seven days later I received that call and was told to report to human resources.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 Questions
    • 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.
