    Had a dinner the night before to get to know the interviewers and then interviewed with many behavioral questions. There were two interviewers. They hire directly after the interview and replied back to me quickly. They are interested about your previous experiences and are looking for emphasis on past internship experience.

    I M S Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saugus, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saugus, MA
    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...

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Basic interview asking questions in reference to job history and responding to certain situations. I would recommend any candidate to review Walmart interviews from others to get a better perspective on what to expect during the interviewing process. The star interview method is used. Google that and you will master the interview process. I guarantee it.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter out of Chicago and did several phone interviews before being invited to a local interview conducted by a panel of managers. The managers didn't seem to care about being there and seemed to ask questions in a perfunctory, disinterested manner. This should have been my first clue.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions asked were very basic behavior based questions. I felt they were very generic and didn't really dig that much into my experiences and qualities.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I would negotiate for as much as possible because they will treat you as if they "bought" you and can do whatever they want with you
