I applied online and 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 Question – 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 applied online and 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 Question – 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

Negotiation Details – Based on experience

I applied in-person and 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...)

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

Interview Details – Applied under the Veteran programs. Received a call within 3 days. Was only offered part time, minimum wage even with all of my experience and college education.

Interview Question – It was all basic, easy questions pertaining to experience and college education   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I can't afford a part time minimum wage job with all of the experience I have. Especially with Bill Simon advertising veterans in management positions in a speech given earlier this month.

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.
