    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three days after I applied online, I was called in for an interview the next day. I was interviewed by one manager, then by three others in a second interview immediately following the first. They were all really nice and weren't really intimidating. In both interviews, I was asked four different "Name a time when..." questions.

    After the interview went well, they needed to contact my references before moving forward. Four days later I received my job offer, and filled out background check form, and took my drug test at another location.

    Five days later, I got the call letting me know that I passed my drug test and background check. Then I was told when orientation was.

    Walmart Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Upper Saddle River, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I have had a multitude of customer service positions, ranging from managing a front end to running the camera and film area. This has allowed me to meet and understand the needs of a large customer base and rarely face a problem I have not encountered before. My brief time at the car dealership in Hackensack even gave me the skills to try to help sell extra items or up-sell specific items we are trying to move that week.

    I am available to be interviewed and to work 24/7. as long as minimal warning is given since I live less than 10 min away. It sounds like this job calls for some time working alone (which I actually prefer since I feel it minimized any possible distractions or confrontations that may arise, but also involve some team activities (which while I do not prefer I thoroughly enjoy getting to know my more positive associates where I can not only learn from them, but also get the job done more quickly- all while having fun and keeping the clocck running faster,

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was quite simple. I applied online in June and didn't get the call until September. They ask about 6 questions like 'Name a time you had a disagreement with someone and how you resolve it.' Then they take you one a tour of the store and the back of the store. Explaining your duties. Then they had me meet the head manager. She told me I passed the interview and needed to take a background check and drug test. The big thing you have to have is availability. That's what they really look at and if you have open availability they will hire you even if you don't have any experience at all and you don't get scaried of the early morning job.
