Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Columbia, SC

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in April 2012.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by two shift managers and then by the district manager. I was hired pretty much on the spot because of my extensive background with another large grocery retailer.

Interview Question – Walmart uses a set of pretty ridiculous questions that are very difficult to answer quickly.   Answer Question
