Overnight Stocker Or Tire and Oil Service Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Daphne, AL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in September 2009.

Interview Details – Boy did I stumble on some of the questions that they asked. Mostly they were what would you do in this scenario type of questions and you describe your answers best way you could. Lets just say I definitely could have been more prepared for those questions. I had 3 people interviewing me at the same time and they took turns asking me those questions and also the fact that it was my 2nd interview ever didn't really help lol. So for me it was pretty tough and I'm not sure if I'll be called back for it. Fingers crossed lol.

Interview Question – I cant remember the questions exactly but they were pretty much similar or the same questions that you take during the online app that you have to pass in order to be considered for an interview. They asked me maybe about 20 to 25 questions total.   Answer Question
