    Interview

    Was brought in for an interview & asked all sorts of questions I wasn't trying to have. Also they made me come in before 9 which is definitely not kosher. Regardless they liked what they heard and told me to go pee in the cup. This is when things got iffy

    Only a few scenario questions. Drug and background check. Usually a problem solution and tell about a time when you were in a situation and the process you took to resolve it. Then the results that you saw and what you learned from it. Two interviews. One with zone manager and the other with the assistant manager

    It was simple, asked a few questions and got hired. They like associates who are looking to stay within their industry and promote to managers. You get the Walmart discount after working 3 months as an employee.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Walmart (Greenville, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Two interviews with similar questions in both. Employer reads a short form and you answer. I would not worry too much about it being hard. It is a very easy interview process and I had mine all at the same time.
