    It was simple, asked a few questions and got hired. They like associates who are looking to stay within their industry and promote to managers. You get the Walmart discount after working 3 months as an employee.

    As long as you come in to the interview with confidence you will be fine. Also just make sure when you are answering the questions that you do not contradict yourself. Speak clearly and precisely, eye contact is never a bad thing which will go hand in hand as part of confidence.

    Situational based questions that are open ended questions. Always looking for what you would do as a leader in the work force. Previous interviews with Wal-Mart set a similar basis for the questions asked during the interview. Always prepare situations that show a positive outcome for the decision made. Always be prepared to end with what the outcome was for the situation.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. A week later they called to schedule an interview. Met with the store manager and pharmacist to be interviewed. They asked a lot of situational questions and questions where you must explain a time when u...... After the interview, it took about 3 weeks for them to follow up on the job offer.

    Interview Questions
    • When was a time when you were given a difficult task and how did you go about completing it?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. I should have, but I did not negotiate. The starting rate seemed so low. Also, there were other people waiting to be offered a job AND they were in the same room as me. I think Walmart did this so people will not be comfortable enough to negotiate.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three days after I applied online, I was called in for an interview the next day. I was interviewed by one manager, then by three others in a second interview immediately following the first. They were all really nice and weren't really intimidating. In both interviews, I was asked four different "Name a time when..." questions.

    After the interview went well, they needed to contact my references before moving forward. Four days later I received my job offer, and filled out background check form, and took my drug test at another location.

    Five days later, I got the call letting me know that I passed my drug test and background check. Then I was told when orientation was.

    I M S Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole process took about 2 weeks... The store that I applied to was a brand new super Walmart that hasn't been open yet... First interview was just a basic run down interview "how did you hear about us?" "Why do you want to work for Walmart?"... Just felt like they wanted to see if you can speak english and read properly. The second interview was with the store manager and lasted all of 5 mins and was a waste a time in my opinion... And yes they do require a drug test within 24hrs of the second interview or you could not apply to Walmart for a full year ... Which I found odd...

    Interview Questions
    • How did you hear about us? Why do you want to work for Walmart? Why Walmart and not a competitor?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Zero negotiation take it or leave it type vibe... Everyone for the most part starts off at the same pay... They sell idea that there's a lot of career opportunity within the company and that if you stayed focus you could find yourself in a supervisor position and that's how you get more money... In fact many members of the hiring staff were former part time associates that put it 10+ years...
