Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart.

Interview

Panel interview with 6 different people working there. A lot of "what if" or "how would you handle" questions. Not all questions were related to the job, such make small talk and make them laugh or smile, worked in my favor!

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    There are two interviews done by two different managers. The questions are pretty basic they'll each ask you about 5 to 10 questions all in similar style "tell me about a time...." type questions. If they ask you to do a urine test afterwards you pretty much have the job

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty quick. I had a 2 part interview by 2 different people, one right after the other. Right after my interview I was asked to come back the next day for my job offer and take my drug test. About a week later, I started working. It's a great place to start out and develop retail skill. If you're a hard worker, it's easier for you to move up in the company as positions become available. When you move up in the company, another interview conducted.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Walmart has a certain model they follow for interviews. You may be interviewed by two or more managers, including the department manager. They will ask you questions, each taking turns. Questions are usually "put you on the spot"-type, such as, "give an example of when you had to deal with a customer who was upset." Or, "tell us about a time that you had to deal with a major problem, what did you do, and what was the outcome?" These are the typical type of questions they will ask, so it's a good idea to prepare a head of time, as they will expect an answer immediately. It's hard enough to think when you are already nervous.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart (Spring Hill, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Asked very on the spot type questions. Wanted to get to know the person that they were potentially hiring. Make sure that you're ready to talk about past experiences and how you would handle conflict. Two department managers did my first interview and then I waited around for a little bit for my second interview that same day. I then went through a background check & was sent to go do a drug test.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Madison, MS) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewers asked the same questions. I felt like my answer wasn't good enough for them. But it was actually a process that they do when they interview a person. I never had that done to me at my previous jobs.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart (Knoxville, TN) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was with a large group of employees, consisting of generic questions. It didn't really feel personal, or like they knew who I was. Though, with that in mind, the interview itself was very simple. I just based my real-life experiences, and they found my answers sufficient enough at that. I had very little work experience, but it surprisingly didn't hinder my job offer.
