Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – questions are very long, all the care about is that you answer them using the STAR method, listen very carefully first time question is asked then ask them to repeat questions so you have more time to think of an appropriate answer (you will not be docked for this and you will come across a lot smarter with thorough answers)

Interview Question – give an example of a time you had to deal with a controversial situation, what was the situation, who did you involve, how did you go about it, what was the outcome, what information did you use to make a decision what if anything would you do different in the future   Answer Question

Interview Details – If already employed with walmart, you need a bachelors and need to get in contact with the market HR. If not employed, search online for open positions, (assistant manager trainee) and then contact a shift or store manager at the store you wish to apply. they will be able to pass your info along to the market hr.

Interview Question – The interview is basic behavior. what projects have you worked on, what was the outcome, who did you use as resources.   Answer Question

Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Columbus, OH

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

Interview Details – I went in for an interview for overnight dairy associate for some extra money. The Assistant doing my interview noticed my qualifications and suggested to the market hr manager that I be considered for ASM. The initial interview was just with the assistant. Then I got called back to interview with the Market HR and a group interview with 2 store managers. The entire process after the 2 weeks I waited for the dairy interview, was about 3 weeks. I started an 6 week training program shortly after my offer. The initial salary is 38,000, however you can earn additional salary from being outside walmart and having "hiring credits" I got the first hiring credit that bumped me to 41,800

Interview Question – They are multi-questioned interviews. The only one I recall is What experience can you share where you had to deal with a difficult customer? What was the experience? What was the problem? What tools did you use to resolve the problem? and How did you handle the situation?   View Answer
