Electronics Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee
Summerville, SC

I applied in-person and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Walmart in August 2012.

Interview Details – Pretty simple really.You fill in the application.You do so by going to a Kiosk usually set in the customer service area.You will receive a call to come in by a certain time for interview.(Important :Be on Time).They usually give you an interview.They may not call you back right away (for me it was a day or two between when I made the application and when they called me).If you get a call back to have a 2nd interview it's pretty safe to say you have the job.The second one is usually filling out the paperwork, doing your drug test, and getting the anti union stuff out the way.

Interview Question – They seemed to be fixated on whether or not you will go the extra mile for the company.So they may ask you to name a time when you did a extra project for your previous employer.Or can you tell me a time you've done more than what was expected of you on a project and what was the result?   View Answer

Cashier Interview

Anonymous Employee

The process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – I applied online through the walmart website and got a call after a week. They asked a couple of questions on the phone about my job experience and the job responsibilities. I didn't have any job experience so I answered all questions based on my volunteer experience. They would ask about stuff like: Describe a time when you had to deal with a difficult situation and how you handled it? Tell me about a time when you had to work in a team, how was the experience? Then they told me to come over for an interview with 2 references and 2 government id's. You will be interviewed with 5 other people.

Basically in the interview they will make you fill out forms for background check. Then they might give you a product and ask for you to demonstrate what you'll do if a customer came up to you and asked you about this product and how you will help him. Then 6 department mangers from the store will come over and each of them will ask you a question similar to the ones they ask you on the phone. They might also ask why you want to work in walmart so make sure you have to say something about that. After the interview they will ask for your references (if you have any). References are not that mandatory I know a person who did not have any references and still got the job.
I got a call back from them after a month saying I was hired and to come for training. The whole process took about 40 days. Basically if you get a call from them you are hired since all the people they called on that interview were there as well.
