I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Walmart (Salem, NH).

Interview

It was mostly customer oriented questions to see how well I reacted to difficult customer situations. They also asked questions to see how well I reacted when under pressure and to see how I managed my time when it came to deadlines. Another set of questions was to determine how well I work in groups with other people.

    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.

    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.
