    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process from day of first interview to receiving an offer and setting up training was over 2 months long. Initial interview date was changed last minute via e-mail. Was told I would find out in 2-3 days if I got the job, and finally heard back 2 weeks later. I had to send many e-mails to store manager and HMR to get answers, with no return emails from store manager and responses that took days from HMR. Was told my 6 week training program was a few towns away from home, then with a week before start date was told I had to travel 5 hours and 2 states away. Not only that, they also wanted me to carpool with people I have never met and also stay in a hotel for 6 weeks with someone I have never met because it is their motto to "save money live better". Needless to say I ended up not taking the job which was probably the best decision of my life.

    Interview Questions
    • Most questions were just situational questions....Tell me a time when? I have worked retail for many years and all my answers revolved around customer satisfaction. The store manager who interviewed me pretty much told me that my customer satisfaction answers didn't matter because I won't deal with customers as management- my goal is to train and teach employees. I have never seen a business when customer satisfaction skills are not necessary and when management doesn't deal with customer concerns/complaints.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter out of Chicago and did several phone interviews before being invited to a local interview conducted by a panel of managers. The managers didn't seem to care about being there and seemed to ask questions in a perfunctory, disinterested manner. This should have been my first clue.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions asked were very basic behavior based questions. I felt they were very generic and didn't really dig that much into my experiences and qualities.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I would negotiate for as much as possible because they will treat you as if they "bought" you and can do whatever they want with you

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process was very quick and enjoyable. I spoke with a recruiter that contacted me. I then had an interview set up for the following week. The interview I had was with a store manager, then the asset protection, market manager, and HR rep in a panel interview. Long story short I was offered the job and the process was very enjoyable.

    Interview Details

    I applied externally and have to say that it was a pleasant experience. Be prepared to answer situational questions involving retail answers. Come dressed professionally in slack for a man or dress for a lady. Most of all my best advise to anyone interviewing is research the company and be yourself.

    Interview Questions
    • I think they were all equally on the same plain but not really that difficult if you're prepared.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Situational questions. Interview conducted with 3 people. The market MGR, Market HR MGR, and Store Manager. It is a little intimidating sitting in front of 3 people who take turns with questions. There is 5 categories with the hardest an ethical question. Not that ethics is hard but no explanation on how to answer.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was done over the phone by the store manager and a co manager, though standard procedure would be done by the market human resource manager. I was asked questions based on competencies such as judgment, customer service, adaptability, planning and improvement, diversity, etc. They asked a question for each topic then the store manager may ask any other probing questions like experience for position. Then they ask my questions concerns. He said he would let me know who he picked by the end of the week and he called me back that same day and offered me the job
