    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Walmart (Duarte, CA).

    Interview

    They have you come in and wait for about an hour and a half before anyone is available to see you. They ask you a series of questions in a very tight back office. Be positive, smile, be friendly. That is the primary concern, especially in a customer service position. It's not a hard job to get.

    Electronics Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Norwalk, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walmart (Norwalk, CA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I was initially called in for an interview the day before it was to be scheduled. Asking the associate who called me where I should report to had me going to the Site to Store area and waiting. Once arriving the following day for my interview at the Walmart location, I waited in the Site to Store area with one other candidate. About 15 minutes after arriving, the other candidate was pulled in before me and about ten to fifteen minutes after that I was pulled in. The first interview was with a person of management. They asked me to verify my information, double checked with me about my availability, and once that information was accounted for by the personnel associate, I was then asked to describe myself. Once I detailed my work experience to her, I was asked to be patient and wait for an Assistant Manager in the Associate's Breakroom. It was a good twenty or so minutes before someone came for me to give me my second interview. The Assistant Manager that interviewed me pulled me into an office away from the Personnel office and gave me my second interview. She introduced herself, I introduced myself and we continued the interview process. It was pretty basic as far as retail interviews go. A couple of situational questions that dealt with hypothetical and/or personal examples were given and then we went over what I did for my previous employers and how that would relate to the job I was being interviewed for. Towards the end of my interview, I offered her a copy of my resume and cover letter and was told that it wasn't needed at that stage and she asked me to wait in the Associate's Breakroom once more. About another ten to fifteen minutes went by before a different person of Personnel came and got me and I was sat down and offered the job I was interviewed for. Accepting the job offer, I consented to a background check, drug test and formally signed off on my information for the background check. I was given a form for my drug testing with a printout of directions to get to the medical facility to take the drug test and was informed I had twenty four hours from the time written on the form to take it. One minute after and my application was null and void and I'd lose out on the job. Going for my drug test was simple. Did the typical drug test and waited for about six to seven days before I was called and scheduled for orientation the next day. Was overall a positive experience and so far, all of the associates that I've worked with have been very accepting and helpful.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't really any difficult questions asked in my opinion. I guess one of the hardest ones that could've been asked was, "Describe a situation that you were given a difficult project. What did you do, how did you handle it and what was the outcome?" This would mostly be difficult to answer in the case of not preparing the night before for the interview. But luckily, I prepared for many scenarios.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was offered a fair wage for starting fresh at the company. There wasn't much negotiating. The only question I asked since it was part-time, is if it was a temporary part-time or permanent part-time before I accepted it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walmart (Buena Park, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The process is very repetitive. They ask the same question about five times, worded differently. The person that interview you can either be a manager or just a supervisor. When answering the questions, the interviewer doesn't seem a bit interested. After getting interviewed by two different people, they give you a paper to get a drug test.
