Manager Interview

Manager
Butte Valley, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ months - interviewed at Walmart in March 2010.

Interview Details – Long process with hundreds of computer based training, a quick orientation in person and lots of horn tooting. Job offered then taken away, then a lower offer, A bit of bait and switch.

Interview Question – None really. Tell me about a time you had to solve a difficult problem with little time. They always want a story, a personal scenario.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – All salaries are always negotiable always. Accept the job but you need more money. It works.
