    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Walmart in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview phone questions were strictly down the line of the WalMart job skills for the position, 12 of them. Face to face interview consisted of a "what if scenario" business plan development and presentation to a panel consisting of the HR person, and 2 Market Managers. 20 minutes to prep and 10 minute presentation. 2 of us were brought in at the same time given same criteria and prep time. Unfortunately the second person to present had an additional 10 mintues (my presentation time) to mentally walk through his more to improve overal presentation. That this gave an advantage to the 2nd one.
    Overall, thought the process was very shallow, not much face time to really sell yourself.

    Interview Questions
    • questions were basic to those skills expected of a retail store manager.   Answer Question

    2 phone interviews, then a "walk thru" where I had to tour with associates in different ares of the store. Finished with a quick panel interview where I had to talk for 1 Minute about why I was the best candidate.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Walmart in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was a very painful experience. I felt like the interviewer did not like me personally because of how I look. Anyway, Wal-mart is a cool place to shop but a horrible place to work at or interview at. Good luck.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Walmart in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a 2-day event:
    Day 1: Initial behavioral phone interview
    Day 2: In-person interview consisting of panel interview (behavioral) with the Market Manager and his/her team followed by a graded store walk and P&L review.

    The interview was superfluous and for the most part, the Walmart Market Managers have decided who they are going to hire prior to the actual interview. I was fortunate to have corporate sponsorship and was selected for the position.
