    Typical question how you would handle a situation with an associate. Tell me about a time you went above the call of duty to get a task done? Very straight forward questions.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I promoted from zone merchandise supervisor, the first step is for your store manager to recommend you to the market hr manager, this makes you stick out from the rest of the crowd. The interview was over the phone with the market hr manager and there was 8 questions all of which were describe a time questions. Very easy for myself but you have to be very specific but don't be too long winded.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Applied online then they called a few days later to come in for an interview. You interview with a zms then if you pass that interview you have to interview with an assistant manager, zms, and the head of the department you are applying for all at once. It was weird having a three on one interview. They gave me a drug test I had to take within 24 hours and then they called me within a week and told me to come in for the job offer. That's when you meet the store head manager she/he offers you the job.

    Shift Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    If you need a job now or in a month, avoid Wal-Mart. They have the longest hiring process I have ever experienced. 9 months! Most of the time you have no idea where you stand, DO NOT quit your job until you are working for the company, expect an 8 week stay away from home while in training, expect to be placed far away from home, I have seen so many managers get placed hours way from where they live. The AMT training class does NOT prepare you for how crazy and wild a real store is or how insane some of the managers are, if you are hired as an ASM, GOOD LUCK, you will most likely have multiple Shift Managers bullying you around all the time, and most of the time none of them are on the same page. Forget what they taught you in AMT, that is just a PR machine churning for no reason at all except to give people a false hope and sense of what a REAL manager position at Wal-Mart is like.
    They fly you through that class so fast you most likely will not have learned much from it. You will learn early on , within a week or two, that your HR Market Manager, Market Manager, Store Mnager and Some Shift Managers did not go through that training.
    Yeah they teach about taking temps on trucks and that ONLY salaried managers can unload a truck, or break the seal BUT, you will most likely be so overwhelmed that you make a Zone Manager or Support Manager do it, and guess what, they most likely did not check temps, left a pallet on the truck, left a pallet in the backroom off refrigeration.
    So give these things some thought as the AMT training is part of your on-boarding, also you can fail this class, but the facilitators can care less if you succeed or fail!! But they will send you packing if you break the rules, and that means no job!
    Good Luck!

    Interview Questions
    • One of the interview pieces is for you to present a business case. In my scenario it was a Pharmacy down the street that Wal-Mart ironically put out of business. How would you get the customers in to your store, for me it was obvious, Wal-Mart shut everything else in town down, BUT, you have to come up with plans to get the business, very basic presentation to be honest.   View Answer
