North Warren, PA

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 Question – 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 and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Inventory Associate Interview

Inventory Associate
Fort Worth, TX

The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Walmart in June 2009.

Interview Details – Easy process for a typical standard MW job. The interview had about 7 to 8 questions of the standard skills and personality questions. You honestly arent going to encounter anything out of the norm. Most of the questions are employee/ company interest type questions. And as long as you display the fact that you can keep both of those interests at hand while answering and integrating these concepts in your answers you will be fine. Good luck!

Interview Question – How have you handled a conflict with associate or customer?   Answer Question

Little Elm, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Interview Question – Describe a situation in which you had to solve a personnel problem and exactly how you handled it.   View Answer
