    Front End Cashier Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Antioch, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    It only took about 3 days, and 2 of those days was just waiting on the results for my drug test, they called me for an interview the morning after I applied online. The interview process was hilarious to me, only because my answers were awful and I asked the lady interviewing me to repeat the questions several times each. She just passed me on anyway (they were converting the store into a super Walmart with the grocery store and stuff in it) so they were just hiring everyone it seems like. Their systems are currently down so I haven't really been able to do the CBL (computer training) and they pretty much threw me and the other people recently hired to the wolves. Working the register is slightly difficult when you first start out. I've been working the register untrained and inexperienced for all of a day or two, but the other employees are pretty chill when I mess up (which happens a lot since I don't know what I'm doing). I have to admit, I expected it to be way worse. If you're interviewing here just smile a lot, my supervisor keeps telling me "Smile, we're at Disneyland," every time she catches me with a straight face. It's pretty funny.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Monroe, LA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview more relaxed than a formal interview. Questions were based on what to do in certain situations. For instance, the question was asked about how I would talk to an employee that is continuously late to work. The main thing to remember is to be yourself and think of all the ways you qualify for the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart (Easley, SC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Went to the back of the store and sat on the bench next to restrooms, waiting to be called from the back by HR. When she called me back, she went over some paperwork just saying which position I applied for, how much the pay will be, etc. She then called back two managers to ask me behavioral questions all in one go which I liked because I didn't have to do 3 separate interviews, and in the end they offered me a different better job that pays more.

    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!
