    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart (Grand Blanc, MI) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very long. Walmart doesn't offer set interviews. An open interview is established. When arriving there are an abundance of other individuals waiting to be interviewed. Only two interviewers for over nearly two hundred people. The wait is extremely long, so if you are crunched for time this is not an interview to be on time for. No sitting area standing for a maximum of 3-5 is expected. Once the process starts there is a kne on one session, then a group interview, followed by a routine drug test. Schedules take a very long time to receive.

    Applied online. Half a week later got a call for an interview. Interview at 10 am at the store. Met the department manager for an interview. Asked 2 questions. Then came back in the afternoon for another interview with the store manager. Asked about work experience then go over job description and signed the paperwork.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart (Petal, MS) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I did two easy interviews. The managers were okay, so the horror didn't start til after my first day where they sent me to the deli with no training whatsoever. That's always how it was there. They expect you to do it ALL to their unrealistic expectations, but they don't even bother helping you learn how to do it. Managers will not listen to you at all.
