Very Easy Interview
Overnight Stocker Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Walmart in May 2013.
Interview Details – Fill out an application online, wait for a call, schedule an interview time, interview, get accepted, get drug tested, wait for a call for training, spend a day with HR on incredibly slow computers learning through modules and completing tests, schedule your first day of work, and go to work.
Interview Question – The most difficult/unexpected part was the lack of variety of questions even though they were reading from a script. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There really isn't much room for negotiating. If you don't take the job as they offer it then they'll find some person just evicted from jail, or high school drop out, or college failure, or single mother who will accept the job because such people are in no short supply.
Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in April 2010.
Interview Details – You walk into the human resource area and you wait for a manager to come and ask you some questions. They would ask you 3 questions and if they liked you, they would send for an upper level manager who come and ask you 3 more questions exactly like the first set. They hire just about anyone and the questions are a formality but after they hire you, you talk to HR who gives you the paperwork to get drug tested.
Interview Question – Describe a situation you thought that you cannot get through, and how did you handle it, and what was the result? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They are very standard. Almost every position starts off at minimum wage.
Sales Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person - interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.
Interview Details – The interview went good. The first person that interviewed me was really nice and , she had asked me if this was my first job and I said yes and she helped me through the interview then she told me that that she will talk to the other managers for a second interview. She also gave me tips on what to say on my second interview and she said when I am asked a situation question always start off with "the situation was" and it really helped a lot and also to let you know there's about 5 or 6 questions they ask and they circle if it was satisfactory or unsatisfactory or needs improvement or no experience. For my second interview I waited about 15 minutes til they called me back and the second person to interview me was also friendly. She let me know that she would be asking me the same questions the first interviewer asked me and a couple more she will throw in. The second interview went smooth she only asked me 3 questions and she offered me a job! Always remember to smile and talk a lot and ask questions. Ask them how would you know if you get hired. Sell yourself to them , they want to know how bad you want the job. If you don't have experience let them know and use school experience or volunteer experience. Also the questions are a little tricky and they may ask you the same question and word it wrong and if they do use the same example.
- What did you do to resolve a problem? How did you solve it? What steps and guides did you use and what was the outcome? Answer Question
- What did you do when you didn't agree with someone's idea? What did you do so you both could agree on something? what was the outcome? Answer Question
- I forgot how they word , but they ask you "if you have a dead line to get a job done , what steps and guides did you use and what was the outcome?" View Answer

Wal Mart Cashier Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.
Interview Details – I filled out the application and was called in for an interview a couple days later. It was pretty simple. The first interview was a bit easier than the second interview, this I think was mostly due to the personality of the first interviewer. The second interviewer was with a older gentleman with a tough core to crack. A drug test and a background check was also performed.
Interview Question – What would you do if a customer pushed to say a price on an item was cheaper than what was ringed up on the register? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – None
Bakery/Deli Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.
Interview Details – I was contacted about a position in the bakery, and scheduled for an interview the next day. When I got there, I did a quick walk-through. The people were very pleasant, store looked and smelled very clean. A little on the small size, compared to what I am used to, but it is grocery-only. The interview went well; I was not expecting to have only the one, but they had apparently decided they wanted me there and talked about things in the sense that I had already been decided on. That was actually pretty nice. We did a walk-through of the bakery and deli departments, as I will be trained as a crossover employee. I met with the assistant manager, who was also very friendly. All around a very pleasant experience, even with my going into it with a preconceived notion that they would not be a good employer. I accepted their offer on the spot.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected; the usual questions, in regard to problem solving and conflict resolution when working with customers and coworkers. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Pay is based off of a computer algorithm that takes into account your past work experience and the scores you receive during the interview questioning process. The better your scores, and the more previous experience you have, the higher the computer makes your starting pay. My pay was based on four years of previous grocery experience and a Bachelor's degree in administration. Because of the experience and education, I received an extra $1.20/hour in what they call Hiring Credits. It made the difference, because if they had offered me what the base pay would have been without the credits, I would have turned them down.
