Associate Interview

Associate

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – The interview process was standard. You are asked to give examples of a time when you handled a difficult situation, and a difficult person. Your work history is touched on, and as long as you can answer basic questions, you'll get to the next step, which is a drug test. If you can past the drug test, and accept the extremely low salary, you'll get hired.

Any Position Interview

Any Position
Las Vegas, NV

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in October 2013.

Interview Details – You will be contacted by phone for initial interview. There will be 3 interviews, or should be. Depending on how many applicants, you might have to have to come back later for the rest. The first interview is conducted by an hourly supervisor, the second by a salaried member of management. The third interview is supposed to be my the store manager.

Please make sure that there are 2 current and valid phone numbers of people you actually know as references, (Not actually "Professional Contacts") They have to be able to answer the questions, not refer us to a hotline.

Interview Question – The questions are long winded and repetitive. Listen for the core of what it is asking. Give an real life example, whether work, school, or home related and how YOU actually came to solve the situation. The company wants to see how you think, how you solve problems. So show them that you can.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. The job offer is set. Each job has a level, a code. So whatever you are interviewing for and eventually might be getting, has a set value. The only difference might be if you job credits that the system can take into consideration. No one will know that, until the actual job offer is presented by the computer.

Cashier Interview

Cashier
Troy, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.

Interview Details – You don't call them, they call you. I went in the first interview with a pretty open availability, they seemed to like me and asked me to stay for a second. They DO contact references, but then they called me in for a third. I've heard and it felt like if you've made it that far, you're in. So long as you pass a drug/background check.

Interview Question – Why do I want to hire you?   Answer Question

Walmart Cashier Interview

Walmart Cashier
Saint Petersburg, FL

I applied in-person and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart.

Interview Details – When Store #5218 first opened I obtained a job here. Surprisingly Walmart's interviewing process is quite thorough. There was an ethical assessment, drug test, and other standards but they asked pointed questions. They tried to demonstrate that they took hiring employees seriously. However, years later they became slack in the interview process. They would rehire associates that had committed crimes and were arrested there at Walmart (which is okay, but it makes the company look bad). They had new CSM's who would not train cashiers to reuse bags and for a week we ran out of bags and had to use the larger bags which have a lower tensile strength. All of these issues have since, I suspect, changed since I was there, however. But if I were to do it again, I would have asked specifically what would be my expectations for gaining entry to higher positions once I was hired from a lower position.

Interview Question – It was actually not as relaxed as I thought. I don't remember specific questions but they take it seriously at the interview.   Answer Question
