    Senior Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bentonville, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Walmart in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a Walmart recruiter in Dallas Texas, while I worked as a senior network engineer. The hiring process was very cumbersome. Had to leave several voice messages for my assigned recruiter. My interviewer seems to not understand what the position required for qualification. The interviewer was also an hour and a half because of a weekly team meeting.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in December 2012.

    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't really a negotiation phrase. It was the standard 10% pay raise as that is all the company will do (in most cases). They told me right up front they would honor whatever agreements I had in place and to this day they have done so.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at Walmart in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Met a recruiter and he passed my resume on to management. They called me and we set up a video interview. It was very technical in the first interview. The second interview was on site in Bentonville and was more about how I would fit with Walmart's culture.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions during the first interview were very technical so study up on your terms! That first interview acts as a screening so they select just a few to come on site for a second.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I said yes because I needed a job. You have to take a drug test within 24 hours of receiving an offer. If I did it again, I would ask for three weeks of vacation each year starting immediately.

    Senior Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bentonville, AR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter contacts you for a phone interview, to go over your skills and experience and make sure you are a match for the job. They typically schedule a face to face interview during that phone interview, if you are interested and would make a good fit.
    They are very detailed in the interview process. They send maps and directions to where you will be going, and include every form of contact information for the people you will be meeting with. They have very strict timelines company wide for the offer process and it typically takes about 2 weeks depending on the Hiring Manager's schedule

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you think you would be a fit for our team?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    They really do their research on salary and benefits that you are currently receiving and set expectations up front with you, so that your time is not wasted. By the time, you get to the offer process, there are no surprises

    Senior Systems Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Submitted application and I have no idea how long it took for a response as I don't know which one yielded a response. I declined the job the first time around due to personal reasons, but when I was available a few months later I contacted the manager of the same team and he was very receptive to bringing me on at that point. (How many places you've applied would have done the same with someone who turned you down?)

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Mostly discussions around salary, but not a lot of changes made. I wish I thought to negotiate vacation time.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was first reached by phone to discuss about my background and understand if it was good for the position. After that I had a first interview with my boss and his peer; I felt really comfortable and I could perceive a friendly and welcoming environment. After a couple of weeks I had another set of interviews which included the development of a bussiness case, a regular interview, and HR meeting. Higher members of the organization participated in these sessions. During the whole process I stayed in contact with my manager and with HR recruiters; they were always very polite, open and supportive.

    Interview Questions
    • Developing the bussiness case was the most challenging part. They gave enought time time to work on it and prepare. As it was a simulation, there were my "audience" and were very participative, helping me to build on my ideas and suggestions.   Answer Question
