    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    I completed my application and received a call back about 2 months after. I went for my interview, which was pretty easy and relaxed to me. I was interviewed by a department manager and then an assistant manager. I was asked only a few questions and both managers were engaging and friendly. I was then offered the job, which I accepted. I then went for my drug test and started working a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question for me was one that asked me to give an example of how I had gone out of my way to help a customer. This was difficult for me only because I had not had a job in retail before so I was unsure how to answer. The assistant manager told me to relax and accepted an answer that had absolutely nothing to do with retail.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate because it never even crossed my mind to do so. I was offered a starting salary of more than $9.00 and hour so that seemed pretty good to me.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview Details

    Interview was set up via a phone call. If you get a second interview, then you have the job, barring a failed drug test. You are sent to take said drug test immediately after the interview. They will call you within a week if you got the job.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no truly difficult questions. It was mainly an anecdote about qualities of the company and asking about any time that you demonstrated similar qualities.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation phase.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walmart in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I received a call on Tuesday and was asked for an interview the very next morning. Went through two interviews, a drug test and now orientation on Friday morning. I was very nervous about what kind of questions they were going to ask, but most of them were pretty simple. I was interviewed first by the department manager, then again by an assistant, then sent for a drug screening. Overall, the process didn't take very long at all. It's just getting that first call that's the harder part, getting them to notice you.

    Interview Questions
    • Tell me about a time you did something above and beyond your job description, including the steps you took, how the issue/problem was resolved? Also, did you involve anyone else such as a supervisor or another associate?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Was offered $7.45 an hr as a Temporary Sales Associate.

    I got asked a lot of useless interview questions by a guy wearing a shirt that was too big for him and I made up answers and got higher because Walmart is not looking for people with marketable skills or anything to be sales drone.
