    Merchant/Replenishment Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    There were two interviews. The first interview was conducted on campus with a recruiter and consisted of behavioral type questions and a lot of "Describe a time when..." questions. I was asked to do a second interview with replenishment managers via webcam. They asked the same exact questions (probably to make sure that I did not change any of my answers).

    Interview Questions
    • There were not any difficult questions. Some of the questions could have been difficult for me to answer if I did not have any previous work experience.   View Answer

    Wal Mart Cashier Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Walmart in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by 2 different people. They both kept me waiting and I had to find them. The interview was held in the Personnel open area people were in and out and at times it felt like manager didn't care what I had to say. I was qualified for more than they were offering but they never suggested something I'd be better suited for. I had a college degree and 20 years experience and they offered a cashier position. At the time I desperately needed a job and took it.

    Negotiation Details
    They just gave me the hourly rate at the time.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denton, TX
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very good job by HR. after that store managers just go through the motions, their only concern is getting the people they know or want because of previous ties. they only interview 2 others because they have to, Also why can you only apply for three positions at a time I'm good with moving to a new city to get ahead and most of the time they don't update their requisitions timely so I lose out on other opportunities for other markets.

    Interview Questions
    • When I talk to managers on what they look for the CO-Manager position they don't know how to answer. usually it is some one with lots of experience with Walmart's. when I ask about 30+ years with other companies in the same field they say but it isn't Walmart.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied externally and have to say that it was a pleasant experience. Be prepared to answer situational questions involving retail answers. Come dressed professionally in slack for a man or dress for a lady. Most of all my best advise to anyone interviewing is research the company and be yourself.

    Interview Questions
    • I think they were all equally on the same plain but not really that difficult if you're prepared.   Answer Question

    Customer Service Manager (CSM) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fulton, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fulton, MO
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Walmart in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    You only do one interview for this position. You are asked basic questions such as describing a time when you have been faced with a difficult situation and how did you handle it. They also give you situations based around customers and ask you how you would choose to deal with it.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest question for me was being asked how I would deal with a verbally abusive customer. In the eyes of Wal-Mart, the customers are always right and we give them their way. I do not believe that is fair. None of us are paid enough to take that type of abuse and those types of customers should be removed from the store.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It is a bit negotiable as far as hours go. If you are looking to negotiate pay, that will not happen.
