    Wal Mart Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irving, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Walmart in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Asked a lot of questions, and I went online and applied there first, then received an invitation through email to do a work related survey and questionaire, then another email stating I was approved for work training and I could schedule it at my own choice of time, then I had two days at training center. Had to pass a job drug test right there on the spot, then after passing that I had to do 9 emails relating to W2 forms and submit for background check right there at the center, then after passing that I was accepted into the training and it took about two hours. Then they walk you through the mock store, and then there is a type of "meeting" room where you have a wonderful trainer who walks you through the store policy, company culture and policy, then from there you are given a 15 min break then brought back to real registers and walked through the different payment methods: Cash, credit card, wic, food stamps, gift cards, tax exempt and stuff like casheir checks, how to cash paychecks and travelers checks. Very nice training! Also how to deal with customers that may be irate or unpleasant, or those who you suspect have concelead merchandise in clothing, shoe boxes, backpacks, or any other thing like comforters ets and how to ask if they meant to purchase it... I really enjoyed the trainer I had. Then you are given an hour luch, come back to more register training on how to ring up different items, such as how to look up things that have no tags, produce, etc. Then you are finally sat in front of computers and given like thirteen videos or so to watch, and then pass a small test at the end of each one and then you are given your badge and told what store to go to, if you dont already know and the info about your store, such as the hours you to work the first da, and the stroe manager, so it was very detailed and enjoyable.

    Interview Questions
    • There was truly no hard questions, just be prepared to use the restroom for the drug tests as I had just went to bathroom before going so I would not have to ask and look silly that I was unprepared for the interview... go there NEEDING to use the restroom, lol.... Also if you cannot pass a drug test or background check, please do not waste everyones time... When I got there there was about 75 people and only 6 of us passed the drug test and background check and it just made all of us other 6 waste our time, the employees time and I was mad that I was next to last in the whole line of 75 and had ht osit there all that time for NO REASON... If your a druggy or child molestor, or convicted of a felony, WAL-MART will NOT hire you so stay away!!!!!!! They have to pay MONEY to test your butt and you know you WONT pass so stop wasting everyones time!!!!!!   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was NO negotiations at ALL, and I am still upset about this! I have had years and years of cashier experience, as well as management experience and STILL was not hired as management, nor given a better salary that min wage! I feel this is really unfair.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walmart in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call from a recruiter asking me to come in for an interview and have dinner. They had gotten my resume from the campus career center so it was an out-of-the-blue surprise for me.

    Dinner was at a nice place and was very informational. The next Day I came to the interview and my interviewers were the ones sitting across from me during dinner.

    Overall fairly relaxed interview. Typical why us questions and such. Asked the difference between a For and a While loop. What is a switch case, which is faster between a switch case and a series of if-else statements.

    Interview Details

    Process took a total of one week. Had a wonderful pre-interview dinner the night before with a few associates as well as other intern candidates. The dinner was casual, layback and fun!
