    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online open to a variety of positions. 2 weeks later was asked to interview for Deli. It does not appear the app info is reviewed prior or during the interview. Hours/shift/rate/job duties were not discussed. 3 days later, was called for another interview as a cashier at same store. 2nd interviewer had no knowledge I had interviewed 3 days earlier for another dept. Again, very vague with hours etc. Upon asking for clarification, I was told it would be a temporary postion, max 180 days with less than 32 hours a week, days/hours/shifts can change at any time. Shifts can be only a few hours or up to 8 hours. Interviewer seemed kind of surprised I was going to try to retain a part time job I was hired for a couple weeks prior (2 shifts a week) AND work at Walmart at the same time. I was told Walmart has high standards for their cashiers and times them from when they clock in to when they get to the register and that the cashier needs to interact with the customer. No info as to how many positions are open/when decision will be made etc. Take from that what you will.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Walmart in August 2015.

    Interview

    At my particular store they were in the process of hiring and they really needed people to work, so they really didn't spend very much time on the hiring and interview process. From the time I applied (I applied online, then went into the store to ask if they had received my application. They asked me right then if I wanted to interview), I was hired and had started working within a week. At the interview, they simply asked me one question. I answered it and they sent me to go get my drug screening (if you don't do that within 24 hours of them sending you, you will not be hired and you won't be eligible to work at Wal-Mart for a full year after that). I did my drug/alcohol screening the same day, called them a few days later to check the status of my hire and they told me I was hired and to come in to do some online assessments (Those are not hard at all (seriously...not hard...at all.), but there are several of them, and they are long and BORIIIIIING!!) Because of my schedule at the time, I couldn't finish mine all in one day, so I did them all over a 3-day period. Once I was done, I started working my overnight hours right away!

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart in August 2015.

    Interview

    In my case, I got called for an interview during the 3rd shift by an assistant manager. The interview was very laid back. They ask you behavioral questions because of company policy, but they are easy. The assistant manager I spoke to told me about the job, hours, and pay and asked me if I could handle the work.

    No negotiation. They have a set base pay plus added shift difference pay.

    Pharmacy Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Walmart in August 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was called the following day for an interview. Came in the next day and met with a department head as a sort of preliminary interview with the basic questions. Afterwards I was interviewed by the pharmacy manager, who seemed like they already knew they were going to hire me. They asked basically the same questions as the other interviewer, and overall it seemed pretty informal. I was pretty much unofficially offered the job on the spot, but they needed to do a background check and call my references before a formal offer could be made.
