Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Denton, TX
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denton, TX
Application Details

I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in October 2012.

Interview Details

Very good job by HR. after that store managers just go through the motions, their only concern is getting the people they know or want because of previous ties. they only interview 2 others because they have to, Also why can you only apply for three positions at a time I'm good with moving to a new city to get ahead and most of the time they don't update their requisitions timely so I lose out on other opportunities for other markets.

Interview Questions
  • When I talk to managers on what they look for the CO-Manager position they don't know how to answer. usually it is some one with lots of experience with Walmart's. when I ask about 30+ years with other companies in the same field they say but it isn't Walmart.   View Answer
Negotiation Details
the Manager, Market HR and the market Manager wanted me but for some reason It was regional declined because of lack of experience

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    For me the interview process was fairly easy, but I studied everything that I could about panel interviews and The STAR method for answering situational questions. I went to a job fair and gave my resume to one of the managers at their table. He asked me a few questions, made some notes and we shook hands. I didn't expect to hear from them because I don't have a degree. About a week or so later I received a call to set up an interview for the following week. When I got to the store to interview, there were 29 other candidates, so I was sure I wouldn't be hired. We were all veterans or about to be. We watched a quick video, filled out an application and waited to be seen. They gave some of us a tour of the store we were at, Spring Lake, NC. While some of us were touring, others were doing the panel interview. Once I was called in for the interview, there were 3 managers waiting. We shook hands, sat down and they explained how the process would work. One of them asked about 6 questions that basically wanted to determine how I have dealt with work related challenges in the past. They have to be situations that pertain to you, not a team or your store, you and how you handled it. They scored my answers while I spoke and showed no emotion. I was a bit nervous because I normally get a smile or some form of conversation. After they questioned me, they asked if I had any questions. I asked a couple and they suddenly became nice again and we talked for a few minutes. I felt better. We shook hands and that was it. I received a call three weeks later with an offer and information on my next steps.
