    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart (Fresno, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Be confident and friendly, don't appear nervous

    It will be a 1 on 1 interview most of the time. Its 5-6 questions (some questions might be worded different but they are basically the same thing, they try to switch it up each interview)

    - You might have up to 3 interviews

    - I was fortunate enough to get the 1st interview with questions, 2nd interview was basically the other manager getting to know me and i asked a few questions about the positions

    - Any variation of "I'll push you through" means you likely get the job offer. They'll contact you to go in for the "Job offer" typically this is for your drug test and background paperwork etc....

    - If you've made it this far all you need to do is be drug free and have a clean background

    - Orientation will start within a week or two, they'll call you and say when its happening

    Interview Questions

    • They ask if you've gone above and beyond to do something for someone (mostly customer related but can be related to school, your personal life..etc)

      some of the questions are much longer, but i tried to summarize it
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You'll sit down with a supervisor/manager who will discuss your pay rate and go over other information with you to acknowledge.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walmart (Cedar Rapids, IA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I have an interview scheduled for next week. However, I am aware of what they are looking for in a person for this position; Clean criminal history, good morals, ethical, honest, and a COMMUNICATOR. Which means I can "profile" a person within 30 seconds, due to past training and experience, to see if it would be beneficial to the Company for me to observe them...

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart (Federal Way, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Easy questions. I had three interviews. They asked me about six questions per an interview. The questions were "give an example of such and such scenario that you encountered in a previous job". The first interview was with two managers, the second was with an assistant manager and the third interview was with a lead manager. Each interviewer asked basically the same questions. All three interviews would have been back to back, but after the second interview, they were unable to get a hold of my references and had me come back in for the third interview at a later time after they had had a chance to talk with them. I did think the assistant manager was unprofessional. She answered her cell phone in the middle of my interview. The first interviewers were unable to get into an office and conducted the interview in the back of the warehouse area, which was kind of weird.

    Deli Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Travelers Rest, SC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walmart (Travelers Rest, SC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I had to go through two rounds of interviews. The first one was pretty basic interview questions. They only ask five questions. They are naively scenario questions. May get offered after first interview. If not they will tell you to come back for second interview during that week or in the same day with 3 managers asking same 5 questions. They will let you know if hired. It's kind of intimidating with 3 managers. But stay calm and positive you'll get it! Started me with 9.50 and I had no experience.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you went out your way for someone and what was the outcome, who did you involve and what did you say.   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you were given many tasks at once. What steps did you take to complete them, who did you involve and what was the outcome?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Didn't have to nogotiate a thing. I loved the starting pay for me not to have had any experience.

Happened within three days. It was really fun to do as I first time interview. Also, they pay well for your first induction.
