Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Walmart.

Interview

Met at college campus and they hired me on the spot. They went over my resume and found out when I could start. I found the process much easier than I thought it would be. I wish I had stayed with them instead of leaving for law school

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart (Columbia, SC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Panel Interview with two managers one was a store manager the other was an assistant manager. The overall interview process was average the one thing I can say is that they are very through in the background check with no time table to go back on. The company as a hole is a good company to work for I think I would have done well there, just had on thing that I did not know was in my background that stopped me from getting the job other than that I would have accepted the offer they gave me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    It was a two or three week turnaround time between the first phone interviews, in person ones and then being hired. The phone interviews were with the human resources and market managers. Both were fairly laidback phone calls. Had to drive over an hour and a half for the in person ones. The in person was less informal and a little intimidating as they normally use a panel interview.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are all situational or how would you or have you handled this situation in the past.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    I promoted from zone merchandise supervisor, the first step is for your store manager to recommend you to the market hr manager, this makes you stick out from the rest of the crowd. The interview was over the phone with the market hr manager and there was 8 questions all of which were describe a time questions. Very easy for myself but you have to be very specific but don't be too long winded.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Akron, OH) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I drove 2 hours for an interview and that was a waste of time. Interviewed with an LPM and shift manager. Interview went well. Had a phone interview also. The recruiter said I made it past the 1st round. But was not selected. Whatever. Thanks for wasting my gas and mileage driving out to Akron.
