Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart.

Interview

All questions are behavioral questions. Each question pertains to one of the position's listed competencies. For example a question would pertain to execution and results, adaptability, customer centered, improving store experience, etc. Each answer needs to tell a story. It needs a beginning, a middle, and an end. What was the problem? What policies or ppl did you involve? What were the obstacles? What was the result?

    Interview

    Went in for an interview. 2 regional store managers asked me 8 questions. After that round of back and forth they told me to wait while they discuss my interview. Waited a total of 2 minutes and the regional manager comes out and told me the 2 managers liked what they saw and he told me to fill out an application and her will call me to schedule a drug test and background check.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Reasons for Declining

    I decided not to sell my soul to the devil for the joke pay to work 55-60 hour weeks including holidays, weekends, and overnights.
