    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Original on boarding took me approx. 3 months and multiple interviews. Must work through recruiting and interview at least twice before being offered an entry level position. To move up into a management position you must then interview with a panel made up of 3-4 managers, including the hiring manager for the position being applied for.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Walmart in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    After sending out my resume, I was contacted my a company recruiter. We had a great conversation. The recruiter was very friendly and knowledgeable. We talked about Walmart's advantages with enormous amount of data and I was very excited.

    It took a big turn when I talked to one of their "engineers", he was very rude: constantly interrupted me and didn't have a clue about what he was talking about, unable to communicate and didn't know what a data scientist do. The worst interviewer ever. I feel sorry for his co-workers. He should be fired from his position.

    Area Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the Careers portal, about 2 weeks later got a call to set up an initial screening interview the following week. Phone interview with HR, Operations Manager, and a Maintenance Manager. This interview would have been crushing if I hadn't done some research here as well as working out through some of these situations previously. All questions need to be answered in STAR format, give SPECIFIC examples.

    I had the basic qualifications, but didn't have the preferred technical experience requested. Was told that I would hear back within a few days with a phone call or message from the automated system. From past interview experience Wal-Mart will usually let you know right away at the screening interview as to whether or not you will proceed.

    .
    Describe the steps you have taken to correct a maintenance or operational issue.

I luckily was able to speak to the person who had called me 15 minutes earlier. She scheduled me for an interview. I arrived 8 minutes early. Waited for the manager for 5 minutes. Was interviewed by the manager of the department I was interviewing for, along with another manager. I was asked scripted questions from a sheet of paper. l finally got the call I had been waiting for, but it didn't lead to me getting hired.
