    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Some technology questions and some general personality questions. For technology, asked a lot about technologies I'd worked with and gave me a fairly straightforward coding challenge. For personality, asked a lot about specific scenarios (i.e. what if a team member was -, or how would you handle a situation where-). Gave me a pretty specific description of the job, including responsibilities and possible movement in the company, which was appreciated and answered a lot of questions. Overall, a pretty positive experience, with little pressure and a friendly, but businesslike atmosphere.

    Overnight Stocker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Walmart in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online for a new store that was opening - A Neighborhood Walmart

    I received a phone call about a week later asking if I was still interested in the position
    I said "Yes" of course
    The lady of the phone gave me instructions to go to the mall where they had set up a place to interview since the main store wasn't complete yet.

    I was interviewed by a panel of what was initially 2 managers and somewhere midway a third manager came to interview me as well.

    I was asked very straight-forward questions that were NOT STAR at all which threw me off a bit.

    "Name a time when you provided customer service..."
    "Name a time when you worked on a team..."
    "Name a time when your views conflicted with another member of your team and how was it resolved"
    "Name a time when a process wasn't followed. What was the process and what happened?"

    I answered them flawlessly and the female interviewer said that she liked me verbally

    I told them that I was currently working at BBY and that I preferred part-time since Walmart doesn't typically bring in people FT off the bat. They all looked at each other puzzled and said that isn't true - I was then told FT would be possible and the female interviewer asked if I would leave BBY if offered a FT position with them - I told them I would.

    I was called back to speak with the Store Manager 2 days later

    This was another weird experience
    The SM had my work experience in his hand and sat down with me and went through it
    I'd had prior Walmart experience on there which was only 6 months at one store and a month at another
    I'd explained why I stayed as long as I did and he leveled with me and asked me
    Are you looking for a job or a career?

    I told him that I was looking for a career and he basically detailed the options that I had for longevity with the company
    He mentioned that he typically doesn't hire anyone on FT until they have proven that they are willing to stay with the company so I was under the impression I would be PT and after that I was given the position

    A little added surprise was that I thought I would be PT but after deliberation (which my wife can confirm) they decided to bring me in as a FT employee.

    The store opens January 2015 but we will be training at another location in the meantime by December 2014

    Interview Details

    The interview was easy. Answered a few questions and was told to come back for a second interview. I did and was not interviewed. Just signed some paperwork to do background check and drug test. Easier than other places I have interviewed. The pay is non negotiable as they use a pay scale, so experience does not matter. Which really stinks.

    non negotiable pay and experience does not matter to Wal-Mart. Negotiate to a better paying position if possible.
