    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Walmart in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Very easy basic questions that usually have nothing to do with the interview. I kept meeting with the store manager so he could see how interested I was in getting the job positions they just need people to put groceries in the freezer section you shouldn't have any problems the only downside is probably how long you have to wait to get the interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Walmart in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied late on a Thursday night, got a call that Friday, interviewed the following Tuesday. I arrived right on time and was told to wait for the interviewer. Wasn't long before I was taken back to their office. Questions were extremely basic behavioral and experience based. Most of them were just the same couple questions worded slightly differently. I answered 9 questions total between two separate interviewers. I received an offer on the spot, pending the usual background check and drug test results. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed - exactly what you'd expect for this sort of position. I was in and out in an hour flat.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I actually applied online months ago but when they first called me I was still employed with my seasonal job then they called me again a couple of months later and asked if I was still interested in being interviewed and I said yes so I setup a date and time for that and on the day of the interview my interview was suppose to be at 9am so I got to the costumer service desk at like 8:55am and told them I was here for a interview and they told me where to go so I sat down on the bench that's next to the walmart.com service desk and I didn't get interviewed until after 10am and I was interviewed by one of the assistant managers and she only asked me two questions then she had to go and plug in my answers into the computer system and then she had me follow her to another room and she told me that I just got hired. So the actual interview was like 10-15 minutes. Oh yeah when they ask you questions they really like it when you use examples from either school or former jobs.

    Meat Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Panama City, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Panama City, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walmart in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, I applied on every position I am qualified for, which is not a lot.

    3-4 hours after applying online, I got a call for an interview for the next day.
    When I got there, I got a 1 on 1 interview, and he asked me a few questions, he told me to wait and see if the others wants to interview me (to determine if I am worth the time, I guess).
    A few minutes later, I got called in and this time, 3 interviewer are sitting in a long table.
    My heart was beating fast, I sat down and at that point, I realized that I need to distribute my eye contacts to all 3 of them equally, which is a little bit hard to do, I may have ended up putting a little more eye contacts in front of me.

    Each of them asked some questions and each I answered, I repeated some answers from the 1 on 1 interview earlier, but they said it was fine.

    Once again, I was put outside for them to decide my faith. They came in not a moment later and said "congratulation, you got the part". I went inside again to fill some paperwork and went to the labs to do drug testing.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I had to apply online and take an assessment. About 7 days later, I received an email from a regional manager. I was then scheduled for a phone interview. He said they would call within the next week and notify those selected. She was very nice, although it seemed like she was in a hurry and was speaking very rapidly while explaining the job application process.
