    Interview

    There was a single interview. As soon as they saw that I had a beard, they asked if I wanted to be in sporting goods. I think there may have been a basic aptitude test to make sure that I could read/write/etc.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Walmart (Wetumpka, AL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    They really just call you and ask you if you are interested in a job, they won't tell you what the job is or anything else. Once you get there you will have about 3 interviews, they will make a random department manager do your first interview, and they will act like you are inconveniencing them. They will ask stupid questions like "Describe a time you worked in a team to accomplish something." Then management will do your last two interviews and they will repeat the questions you were asked earlier but they will be worded differently. Lastly they will tell you your wage (which will be low) and give you your paper for a drug test. They'll call you back a day or two after your drug test clears and they will tell you when to come in for orientation.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were pretty baseline and stupid, to be honest.   Answer Question

    Interview

    you must be consistant. call the store and ask to speak to someone in personel, they normally work mon-fri from 7-4. let personel know your name, they might ask you your availibilty and if they have the positition available they will let you know. If they say that they will write your name down keep calling don't give up. once they tell you for an interview its almost 90% guaranteed for you to get the job. interview is not that hard at all.
