Interview Details – It took forever to get through the interview process. There was a serious lag time in the initial interview for a second interview, then there was finally an offer made.

Interview Question – All interview questions are based upon a scenario. Key ways to interview will include: Giving a specific situation, tell how you handled the situation, and ultimately give the results. Since this company is customer service driven, all applicants who can prove that their scenarios were customer service oriented, will more than likely get an job with this company.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. They will pay you what the current range is, usually on the lower end of the range. The company promotes from within.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in April 2010.

Interview Details – It was the same usual interview questions about past experience, nothing major. There were also questions about my personality and how well I fit into a team environment. Salary was discussed at the last moment and I was given the chance to negotiate before accepting an offer. The people who interviewed me were very friendly. Took me to lunch after interview.

I applied in-person and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Walmart in September 2011.

Interview Details – Initially met at a career fair with local HR representative, who expressed great interest. Two days later, we scheduled for a career day at the local store for a panel interview. Although, my interest was in a corporate position, the HR representative indicated that if their offer was not acceptable, they would refer me directly to the corporate office staff.

The interview was behavioral in nature with situational answers preferred. Interested personnel should be familiar with behavioral type questions and have situations that address the primary areas. Overall, the interview went very well and the HR staff was very professional. However, the panel and the HR representative were reminded that my overall desire was to gain a corporate position and although it was originally offered, the referral to the corporate HR personnel never occurred.

Interview Question – Describe your actions when or if an ethical situation arises.   View Answer
