    Interview Details

    Really easy. 3 rounds of interviews with different management. Questions about work history. Ex: name a time you had to deal with a difficult customer and how did you handle it. Just get in the habit of answering all interview questions in the STAR format. After interviews you get the offer. Pass the drug and background check and you're in. Process from application to orientation took about a week....oh and get ready to squiggly....

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Walmart in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very simple. They ask for scenarios on how you handle difficult customers, what do you do when you have many tasks to get done, and when have you gone above and beyond at work. Easy interview. Not that hard to get hired. They start you off as a temp and if you do good within 2 months Theyllhire you ppermanently. They also send you in for a drug test.

    Interview Details

    I think they have a good interview process for cashiers. The interviewee gets to talk to one of the CSM's and then the store manager. I think that talking with a CSM gives the store manager help in deciding who to hire because the CSM knows more about the everyday things that goes on in cashiering. They know more about the ways things are do em such as WIC. WIC is kind of particular, and here are things that are not WIC approved, or some things are more specific than others. I think the application process is kind of silly. They ask questions more than once, but in different ways.

    Got a call from Human Resources, went in today to do a face face interview with the department manager. The questions was very basic and straight forward.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Walmart in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Asked a lot of questions, and I went online and applied there first, then received an invitation through email to do a work related survey and questionaire, then another email stating I was approved for work training and I could schedule it at my own choice of time, then I had two days at training center. Had to pass a job drug test right there on the spot, then after passing that I had to do 9 emails relating to W2 forms and submit for background check right there at the center, then after passing that I was accepted into the training and it took about two hours. Then they walk you through the mock store, and then there is a type of "meeting" room where you have a wonderful trainer who walks you through the store policy, company culture and policy, then from there you are given a 15 min break then brought back to real registers and walked through the different payment methods: Cash, credit card, wic, food stamps, gift cards, tax exempt and stuff like casheir checks, how to cash paychecks and travelers checks. Very nice training! Also how to deal with customers that may be irate or unpleasant, or those who you suspect have concelead merchandise in clothing, shoe boxes, backpacks, or any other thing like comforters ets and how to ask if they meant to purchase it... I really enjoyed the trainer I had. Then you are given an hour luch, come back to more register training on how to ring up different items, such as how to look up things that have no tags, produce, etc. Then you are finally sat in front of computers and given like thirteen videos or so to watch, and then pass a small test at the end of each one and then you are given your badge and told what store to go to, if you dont already know and the info about your store, such as the hours you to work the first da, and the stroe manager, so it was very detailed and enjoyable.

    Interview Questions
    • There was truly no hard questions, just be prepared to use the restroom for the drug tests as I had just went to bathroom before going so I would not have to ask and look silly that I was unprepared for the interview... go there NEEDING to use the restroom, lol.... Also if you cannot pass a drug test or background check, please do not waste everyones time... When I got there there was about 75 people and only 6 of us passed the drug test and background check and it just made all of us other 6 waste our time, the employees time and I was mad that I was next to last in the whole line of 75 and had ht osit there all that time for NO REASON... If your a druggy or child molestor, or convicted of a felony, WAL-MART will NOT hire you so stay away!!!!!!! They have to pay MONEY to test your butt and you know you WONT pass so stop wasting everyones time!!!!!!   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There was NO negotiations at ALL, and I am still upset about this! I have had years and years of cashier experience, as well as management experience and STILL was not hired as management, nor given a better salary that min wage! I feel this is really unfair.
