I applied online - interviewed at Walmart in September 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and a week later received a phone call to set up an appointment. I was there roughly two hours. My first interview was with the zoning manager. She asked many questions and seem like they were all behavioral. It seemed like she kept asking me the same question over and over. I don't know if she didn't like my response or if she was seeing if my answers were consistent. She then informed me that I was going through to the next interview with one of the Assistant Managers and told me not to leave. I waiting an hour and I got to see the manager. He introduced himself and asked me to tell me more about yourself. A question I really hate. I was only with him for one minute and once I mentioned I was going to school the interview stopped. I said I was only going to school two days out of the week so I'm free for every weekend and all the other days. He then asked if he were to call me on my days that I didn't have school to come in at 5:00AM? 8:00PM? etc I would be able to come? I told him yes. He then said he couldn't hire me because my availability. I applied for a part-time position so I thought my school schedule wouldn't be a problem. So I was basically there for two hours only to be told that they didn't want to work around my schedule.
I applied online and the process took 12 months - interviewed at Walmart in August 2013.
Interview Details – The best part about working for WalMart were the friendships that I made & the flexibility for an additional job or school schedule. The interview process was of standard, average expectance. The interview was face-to-face and fairly casual, as well as comfortable. It takes quite a long time for WalMart to respond & hire applications. My understanding is that the former is due to everything being completed electronically and lists being generated to the stores from the corporate offices in Arkansas.
Interview Question – Does WalMart have organizational issues and understaffing? View Answer
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. WalMart hires primarily Part-time Associates and they are hired at minimum wage or a few cents above.
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in November 2012.
Interview Details – Got a phone call to set up an interview. When I arrived, I met with the manager of the department I would be working in and asked very basic questions - tell me about a time you had to work with other people to get a job done, tell me about a time you worked in customer service, what do you feel your greatest achievement in life has been so far, etc.
Interview Question – None that were unexpected, they were all basic questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart in July 2012.
Interview Details –
I was really excited as it would be my first job, I was 17 and got called for an interview for the following week. I was then called the following week the day before the interview and told that I had to wait 2 weeks until I was 18 and to call back then because it was too much paperwork. (Unprofessional). I then called when I was 18 and was told to come in the following Monday.
If you know someone that works there, you will get a job. If you get an interview, you will get the job. As long as you can pass a drug test (required no matter what) and a background check (done on all employees). You will get the job. They will ask you some questions that are somewhat difficult but you can relate in some way. Strike up a conversation with the ZMS or the ASM and you will get the job.
I was first interviewed by the ZMS (Zone Manager) for my zone which was the front end manager. She was nice and asked me like 10 questions. Some were hard some were easy. She then said that I would probably get the job. I met with the ASM (Associate Manager) and was asked 3 questions. All were easy and she wasn't even paying attention, she was supposed to ask me more but was busy reading e-mails. (Unprofessional IMO) I was then offered the job. She handed me some papers to sign and then a drug test slip. Then she shook my hand and said "welcome to wal-mart". That was it.
Interview Question – Name a time when you had a difficult situation a group, what were the steps you took to solve it and what was the final outcome. View Answer

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Walmart in April 2012.
Interview Details – Once you've applied at their online application station in-store, you can expect a phone call within 2 weeks depending of course on if your application is approved. And the way to get your application approved is to say you are available to work any and all hours except overnight. (unless you want to work overnight) They rarely look at an application if the hours are too restricted in their opinion. Once you get the interview you usually speak with an Asst manager over the area they have you in mind for. Personnel will then send you to a lab for your drug test.
Interview Question – In a past job, did you have an irate customer and how did you handle it. View Answer
Negotiation Details – Do not let the Asst manager tell you that they do not have the authority to give you the pay you request, they do. If you feel you gave a good interview and you've convinced them that you are the one for the job but are not satisfied with the .50- .75 over min wage they are offering, tell them that you want to speak to whoever can approve it. You are willing to commit yourself to Walmart, BUT you have to pay the rent. They LOVE LOVE LOVE it when an employee says their life is Walmart.
