    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called in for an interview days after applying in-store. First of all, the interviewer was very unfriendly, which made me feel uncomfortable. This was my first interview ever, and I had no prior job experience, yet they asked me questions as if I had worked before, which completely puzzled me and I struggled to think of some example from school. Due to this, there was a lot of silence, and the interviewer stared at me, clearly bored and unamused. There were 5 questions, all basically asking the same thing; to describe a time I worked with a team. All I could give were horribly mediocre answers from school. Unsurprisingly, I wasn't called back.

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was standard. You are asked to give examples of a time when you handled a difficult situation, and a difficult person. Your work history is touched on, and as long as you can answer basic questions, you'll get to the next step, which is a drug test. If you can past the drug test, and accept the extremely low salary, you'll get hired.

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I was asked a bunch of questions that were completely stupid and had nothing to do with me or the job.
    Describe a time when this or that happened. You have no idea which ones they will pick. Most of the questions a normal person would have never had happen anyway. And if they did it is not something you can think of in 2 seconds.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't recall. All were unexpected. I was asked nothing about when I could work or anything that pertained to the job.   View Answer

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Walmart in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very basic and the interview process was very professional. It is very basic; give an example of one of your former jobs, etc. Yet they were very friendly. What impressed me most was that the manager took me on a tour of the store, introduced me to fellow employees and actually put me on a register to see how I would interact with customers.

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example of a time when....I never like those questions because it feels like I'm comparing the company I had worked for with the company I'm applying to.   View Answer

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Walmart in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied at the store and was hired as a sales associate - highly recommend wearing a tie to the interview - worked for me - but at the end of the day just bring your A game and believe in yourself. Would think that its the same thing that applies really anywhere (big company wise...)
