Assistant Manager Trainee Interview

Assistant Manager Trainee
Grand Forks, ND

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in June 2013.

Interview Details – Internal candidate. Had been applying since April via the internal applicant site. You can only apply to three requisitions at a time so make sure to follow up with hiring managers. Sometimes dead requisitions will stay active for months before someone clears them out and if you're not getting a position it's important to know so you can withdraw to apply for another one.

Received an interview offer after following up with the Market Manager. Normally applicants will follow up with the Market HR Manager, but if one is not present applicants will end up contacting the Market Manager or the Store Manager. Interview was a phone conference interview with two store managers. They were friendly, professional and helpful. Nothing was rushed. The interview consisted of 7 Assistant Manager competency questions (all of which can be found here on this website.) The interview lasted approximately 40 minutes.

Interview Question – No questions were unexpected. All of them can be found on this website or through Google. I answered each question beforehand, printed out the answers with the questions in large font. When I would be asked a question I'd simply locate the appropriate piece of paper and answer the question, not word for word, but ad lib using the outline format, similar to doing a speech in college.   Answer Question

Assistant Manager Trainee Interview

Assistant Manager Trainee
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart in April 2012.

Interview Details – I have had 12 interviews so far and have been told I have done well. I have known the questions and answered them suitably from my past 5 years with the company. So what I want to know is what do they really want. I have good references from my past Walt-Mart Store Managers, have worked my way up to my current position as ZMS. Applied myself by being hard working, fair minded and have no right-ups All this has been conveyed to the interviewers and yet I feel I am stuck and can't understand why. What do these interviewers really want from an interviewee?

Interview Question – Give example of a problem that came up and how you solved it.   View Answer

Assistant Manager Trainee Interview

Assistant Manager Trainee
Cooper City, FL

The process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in November 2011.

Interview Details – I met the HR Recruiter at a local job fair and pestered her at least once a week. Finally, I got the call to come for an interview? I went to the back of the store into one of the offices. The area manager took me inside to talk to me while HR was busy on the phone. He asked why I wanted to work at Walmart. I answered .Once HR entered the office the interview began with a series of questions meant to test my competency . Often leading with Describe a time when you ________. I knew some retail I blew two of my question due to nerves but I did my best. I didn't receive an offer but next time. I will apply again in the future though because I think it's a great opportunity. For your interview, learn all you can about the company come prepared to ask questions. Know their mission statement and philosophy , their quarterly report it will tell you a lot and most importantly you can see where the line of questioning will emanate from. After the interview, follow proper protocol follow up with an email thanking them for the interview.
