    Filled the application online, called personnel a few days later, received a call back 2weeks later (Tuesday) to come in for an interview that Friday. Easy questions were asked and after the interview with two managers I was told to come back the following Monday for a job offer and also completed the drug test. If you pass the drug test and background check they will call you for orientation.

    Remodel/SetUp Crew is a temporary job but depending on your work ethic you can be placed in other areas of the store for a permanent position.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I first got my interview at the career fair. From there, I had to fill out multiple forms with fairly difficulut questions. After those, I got the call back for an actual interview. I took an IQ type test as well as a personality test. The interview as not too bad. It began structured where it was fairly difficult and then switched to a more unstructured interview style. The unstructured style is where I felt I excelled.

    Pharmacy Cashier/Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    The interview wasn't as bad as I expected. They were almost an hour late to interview me, which I suppose I can understand. You can't really plan everything out in retail, because you never know what's going to happen. There was 3 people being interviewed for my position (how intimidating) But the department manager came out with a clip board and pen (I felt like I was at the doctors office) and called me back. So we sat down and she asked me about 5 questions. It was really fast. I don't think she cared what my responses was... The questions are VERY thorough, but please don't let this scare you. They ask these questions, but I really think they are just judging to see how you act when you answer them. I was super calm when I went in there. If you make them laugh and talk to them before you answer questions, it doesn't feel so awkward. Make them laugh, and they will love you. She told me "Okay, thank you for your interest... and wait and see if you get a call." That's pretty much a big no, right? Well, I got home and about 3 hrs later, I had a call from the Manager of the pharmacy. She asked me to come and we interviewed again 2 days later. She asked me about 5 questions. And then offered me a job that day and gave me back ground papers. I have the job, provided I pass the drug test... Which I will, unless pepto bismol will make you fail. So yeah! I was really scared, but just be yourself. The questions are tough... but if you let your personality shine through and show them you're not scared, but that you are a people person, you've got this.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you had to complete a task, what was the outcome, what steps did you take?
      Tell me about a time you completed a goal?
      Just stupid stuff like that. They are all behavioral questions. So look them up to get a feel of what they are going to be asking. You can use school or life or anything like that. They don't care. just be confident.

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    At first they took me to the back and three people sat down at a table in front of me and asked me life based situations. And then i sat back down in the waiting area then i met two other people and asked me more questions. The assistant manger was pretty tense on me about wheather i can handle the job but the lady was super nice to me. Be natural and use what you know. Unlike me i was a bumbling dummy. Wish i did better.

    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Linden, NJ
    Anonymous Employee in Linden, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied at the Kiosk and passed the assessment, that took almost 2 hours. I was called a month later to come in for an interview the next day. I arrived at 11am for an 11:15 interview, after about 30 mins a man came out took the person before me and said he'd "be back in a few minutes to take me back to the interview." A half hour later, an associate checked what was going on and said "someone would be right out to do my interview." After yet another hour(I've now been there for 2 full hours!!!) I told an associate behind the walmart.com services counter to cross my name off the list and that I was leaving because any company that would treat prospective employees that badly, I don't want to work for. Between the application, assessment, and the non-interview, it was a complete waste of almost five and a half hours out of my time to get absolutely nowhere. It makes me not want to even shop there if that's how they're going to treat there employees/interviewees.
