    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    I applied online at Walmart.com, I completed my assessment and listed my avaiablitity as anytime.I got at call back within a month. Scheduled a interview over the phone. When I arrived at the interview there was about 5 other people being interview as well. I was called in a back room with a assistant manager and a she asked me about 5 behavioral questions. It wasnt intimidating at all , kind of like talking to a friend. After that I was interview by a store manager and she asked the same exact questions. Next, I signed some forms conforming what was listed on my application. Then another associate told me that the pay will be 9.50 from 10pm-7am he asked me was that okay i agreed. Also he informed me that the position is temporary a guarantee of 180 days. However if they like your performance you have the opportunity to become permanent. I was given my drug test form and the address to the facility, and told I would receive a call about orientation within a week. FYI some of the people that interviewed looked a mess no effort in dressing up. Me & this other guy were the only ones that look decent and he got hired as well dont know about the other applicants. Don't forget to dress for sucess! Basically I was hired on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    A total of three interviews. My experience was that I got interviewed by two assistant supervisors ( separately but same day)and then the following time ( about 2-3 days later) by the store manager. In my experience, if you get an interview with the store manager, it is very likely you will get the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Walmart has a certain model they follow for interviews. You may be interviewed by two or more managers, including the department manager. They will ask you questions, each taking turns. Questions are usually "put you on the spot"-type, such as, "give an example of when you had to deal with a customer who was upset." Or, "tell us about a time that you had to deal with a major problem, what did you do, and what was the outcome?" These are the typical type of questions they will ask, so it's a good idea to prepare a head of time, as they will expect an answer immediately. It's hard enough to think when you are already nervous.

    Walmart Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Walmart (Orlando, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There are three interviews in total. But they will only tell you as you go along the process if you are chosen to continue on to the "next round." To be completely honest, the interviews were easy. You just have to show them that you have that "bubbly" and friendly personality to be a cashier. And the questions they asked were all about situations and how you react to certain predicaments. I was nervous since this was my first official job I had to do an interview for, but once you start talking the edge will wore off and as long as you keep smiling you should get the job.
