Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart (Grand Junction, CO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The application was basically a personality assessment. Once I finished the application, it was less then 24 hours before I received the call for an interview. I was initially interviewed for an overnight maintenance position. The first interview was alone with a representative. After that interview, she said she would like to have somebody else speak with me. I waited about 10 minutes until a manager pulled me back for another interview. Both these interviews were identical nearly with the questions asked about problem solving, conflict, and ethic. He asked me to wait another 5 minutes so he could grab some others. I went into a room with around 5-6 people. I was again asked similar questions, but not the same. At the very end of the interview, they determined they would like to fast-track me to a management position.

    Application

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you had to make an important business decision   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    I applied on line, was called with in a week to have a phone interview with one of the co-managers. Phone interview lasted about a half an hour. I was called two weeks later for another interview this one was in person at the store. The interview was with the Store Manager and the Asset Protection Manager. There was a series of questions that they read from. The more detailed you were the better that you answered the question. I then had a phone conversation with the Market Human Resource Manager. I had to do a background check and pre employment drug screen. All of this probably took
    about a month. Also when you fill out the application on line there is an assessment test that you have to take and if you don't pass that you will not be interviewed.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are pre printed and they can choose one from a list of two. It is broken down by competencies that you need to show that you can do to be able to do the job.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not try to negotiate.
