    You have two interviews, then you get called for a third interview. If you get to your third interview, all that is, is them giving you a job offer. If you accept it, you go do your drug test and they run a background check. I started a week after I took my drug test.

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Walmart in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews, one by supervisor then by member of management. They ask same questions. Then after background check there is a drug test. When results come back they offer you the position. Pay grade .. unless asked is not talked about.

    Interview Questions
    • Is your availability going to change in the next 90 days.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't one, they said this is what you will get and I inquired on the minimal amount of pay and they replied, they base it on position not experience.. which is ludicrous because working with walmart prior it was based on experience. Taking a $3/hr hit was deeply alarming.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    After applying online I was given a call from the company about a week latter to come in for an interview. At the interview I was met by a manager of the store who interviewed me first. Next I was interviewed by two other managers who asked me questions very similar to the first interviewer's questions. After that they told me that they would be in touch with me in about a week or so. They called me three days latter with their reply.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by a supervisor, then by a department manager, and finally by the personnel manager. The interview process was pleasant and positive. My problem with the process was that I told each of these people that I had old felonies in my background. This information was also on my initial application. Each informed me that this would not be a problem and that the background check was just to confirm the information I'd provided. The background check confirmed exactly what I'd told them, but when it arrived the tendered job offer was withdrawn.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by phone by the HR Manager to ask whether I was available for a 30-day night shift inventory associate position. I was interviewed in person, two days later, first by the HR Manager, then by two Wal-Mart non-management employees. The questions asked were scripted, seeking information about customer service orientation, problem-solving abilities, and work ethic. The interviewers were polite, informal, and quite pleasant to talk with. Interviewees should be prepared to offer examples of how they have helped customers solve problems, how they have gone above and beyond to provide customer service, and how they have dealt with difficult or disgruntled customers.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a situation in which you have gone above and beyond the call of duty to provide excellent customer service.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Nothing was negotiable. The hourly pay offered included a $1.00 shift differential.
