I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in February 2014.
Interview Details – Applied in store (website wasn't working at home for some reason), and was told to call personnel a week later. I didn't do this because I had already received a job offer before then. About 2 weeks later I got a call from them asking me to come in for an interview the following day. I decided that I could use a second job, so I went. When I arrived, there were two guys there already, interviewing for stock. I was taken back and interviewed by the produce manager and one other manager. The questions were very basic; the same questions I've heard in every retail interview I'd ever been to. I don't remember applying specifically for deli, but apparently my experience in fast food sent up some sort of deli clerk flag because I was told I would be frying things. They made sure to tell me there is a lot of drama in the deli department. Yay. I say I am used to it, and they send me to the assistant store manager to have another interview. I was very surprised at how quickly the hiring process was going, and had a feeling I probably already had the job. She asked me more questions that were pretty much the same as the original manager's questions were. She seemed to like me and told me she wanted to send me for a drug test. I take this to mean I got the job. They have me drive to a town 20 miles away to complete the drug test, and tell me if I don't do it the same day, I am ineligible for rehire for a year. It was already a bit late in the day and I wondered what people did if they didn't have cars, which I imagine many of their employees don't. Before I left, I filled out more paperwork, was told how much I would be making (and I was extremely surprised to learn it was more than $1 above minimum wage), and was sent on my way. They told me my training would start the following week pending the drug test.
Interview Question – All the most basic customer service interview questions. Answer Question

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Walmart in January 2014.
Interview Details – I applied the middle of month 1 online. ive applied before and never heard anything so i wasnt expecting a call back. I applied for everything I saw there. unloader/processor, loader and order filler.
by the very end of month 2 i got a message on my voicemail for an interview!!! I couldnt believe it! Im a female and so I know how hard it is to get into jobs like this and be a girl. But they called me for the interview, i hadnt even had any related experience, licenses or certifications.
maybe 2 days later. i had my interview. - very easy. it was mostly a conversation. no pressure at all.
A couple days after that, the beginning of month 3, I was called and told to come in for my job offer!
i came in for the job offer the next day.
during the job offer she told me how much i would be paid. came out to be $16.45 an hour. 4th shift which is sat, sun, mon 6 am-6pm. the perfect shift. you get your whole week off, and weekend nights too if you want to still go out with friends.
at the end of that meeting, i signed papers and she told me to leave right away and to go do my drug screen and then soon as i get home from that , to go ahead and check my email for the background check she sent, and to fill it out right away.
she told me i had the job, just as long as my background check and drug screen came back good.
I thought , great. Ive never even been arrested. But then i read the background check and it looks like it says its going to do a credit check, driving record check and the background check. well my credit sucks and ive had a ticket or too in the past so i was a little less optimistic now.
but i called and called after putting the background check in to figure out if my credit would disqualify me and thats when they told me that the background check is done by a credit agency but they dont actually check your credit at all.
10 days into month 3 i was called and told the background check came back and i had the job.
i started orientation 5 days later.
so the whole process took about 2 months, from applying online to starting

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in February 2014.
Interview Details – The interview seemed very relaxed. Asked questions about my past work experience. After first interview they gave a second interview with a different manager. The second interview was almost identical to the first on with the questions slightly different. After that interview they sent me home and told me to call my references. A couple days later they called me to schedule a third interview which was mainly paperwork, signed for my background check, and they told me where to go for my drug test. The manager told me it would take 5-7 days. The drug test must be done in 24 hours or you can not have the position. I took my drug test on Monday and was called Saturday.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Walmart in June 2011.
Interview Details – The hiring process begins with a call from the HR personnel at a particular store after you've completed an application either online or in-store. They will schedule a face-to-face interview. At the interview, you'll be handed a few documents explaining the position you are being interviewed for, as well as some legal documentation concerning your eligibility to work. Signatures are needed for a few of these. Your interview will then consist of 1-2 stages of 5 work-related questions first from a Department Manager or Merchandise Supervisor, followed by an Assitant Store Manager if your answers meet the first interviewer's standards. Both the Department and Assistant Managers will ask the same or very similar series of questions, so your answers might sound repetitive to you. If you are not interviewed by a second person, you will either be scheduled a second interview some other time due to unavailability of management, or you will essentially be turned away with some line like "We have other applicants to interview, and if you're the best candidate, we'll give you a call!" This most often means you did not get the job. They will never commit to calling you back. Following 2 successful interviews, you will be given a form to take to a drug screening facility that must be completed within 24 hours. Upon successfully passing both a background check and drug screening, you will be contacted to schedule an orientation session. There you will fill out more documentation and learn a brief history of the company and watch videos discouraging the formation of unions. You will also be given a tour of the store's different departments. Orientation usually takes 2-4 hours. You will be compensated at your wage for this time, having been officially hired. Your first week at the store will primarily consist of completing several Computer Based Learning (CBL's) lessons and quizzes. These will explain every aspect of the store's function from cashiering, to basic and hazardous safety practices, as well as your particular position's routines and operations. You are expected to pass all of these quizzes. After your CBLs are done, you will be a full-fledged associate.
