    Claims Lead/Supervisor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Quite honestly, my husband was a district manager. And I had worked for Walmart before. So when we found out they were building a new store close to us (we had just gotten transferred to this state), my husband talked to the store manager and got the interview set up. I had the experience...but if there is a wife of upper management, that especially needs a job because of a transfer, they will get it 90% of the time, as long as they are somewhat qualified. There were a few "better" office type jobs-but they were already filled. So I settled for this one until a lady left in the cash office (she had already said she would leave within 6 months) I had 3 interviews. One with personnel. One with a few assistant managers, and one with "the" store manager. I had lived and breathed Walmart since marrying my husband-so there was no problem for me. Typical questions on integrity, being on time, right and wrong, etc. You do have to take a drug test.

    Accounting Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I have interviewed for this position twice. Both times, I was called and asked if I'd like to come in for an interview. The interview consisted of 2-3 parts, depending on who was available at the time. First, the Zoning Supervisor interviewed me. They asked me 3 questions, read from a script. "Think of a time when..." - those types of questions. Then, I went through the same process with an Assistant Manager. The interview process is very tedious and involved for the wages offered and what the job itself would require.

    After these two 15 minute interviews, I met with the Store Manager. They did not read from a script, but simply asked me what I was looking for in a job, my long-term goals (odd question to answer, considering the low wage and high turnover rate), and if I had any questions.

    I was hired, and made aware of this when the Training Coordinator called and asked me to come in and complete a job offer and get a drug test. The job offer doesn't take long - about 10 minutes of reading a computer screen, and entering your SSN to agree with several statements.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions were behavioral and they had too long of a script prepping them. It was overall a confusing, uncomfortable process. I've interviewed at Walmart a handful of times, and I never got any better at it. It is a poorly constructed and confusing process.   Answer Question

    I was asked to provide three interviews, which seemed extensive to me. I wore a tie to my interview, because I though that's what you're supposed to do. The person interviewing after me wore old jeans and a hoodie. I was quite surprised to see him in my orientation the next week.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions all seemed routine. They were your basic questions on leadership qualities, moral ideals and the like.   Answer Question

    There was no negotiating. They gave me a job and I took it.

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Filled out app for every store in my area (which is about 15) and received a call back from one 30 mins away. Went in for a interview same day, very easy. Had interview with manger then second manger came and sat in. Nothing intimidating or difficult. You MUST do a drug test within 24 hours or your interview is void and you may not apply for a year (in my area at least). Background check took the longest, but got a call back 2-3 weeks later for orientation. My advice is to go to a place where it is understaffed or new. They will definitely be hiring and give you the most hours.
