Wal Mart Cashier Interview

Wal Mart Cashier
Rome, GA

I applied in-person - interviewed at Walmart in July 2012.

Interview Details – A few questions, mostly background information. They covered the job in high detail and discussed what they were looking for. The job was simple and so where the interview questions. Questions were: What was your most recent job? What where your responsibilities? What did you like? What didn't you like? Why did you leave? Ever been arrested? Just a standard interview.

Reason for Declining – received another offer at the same time.

Commack, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.

Interview Details – It really wasn't a interview. I came in asked for the hiring manager and was escorted to the back area and told to sit in a room with a long table and computers. The manager came in, handed me a 3 page packet and another paper that i had to sign and pyt my social on and check off whether or not i've ever been convicted of a crime. Once i was done she gave me directions to get a drug test and the lab paper and saud once she gets the results i would be recieving a call for orientation on thursday. She didn't ask any questions at all, which was fine with me.

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.

Interview Details – I filled out the application and was called in for an interview a couple days later. It was pretty simple. The first interview was a bit easier than the second interview, this I think was mostly due to the personality of the first interviewer. The second interviewer was with a older gentleman with a tough core to crack. A drug test and a background check was also performed.

Interview Question – What would you do if a customer pushed to say a price on an item was cheaper than what was ringed up on the register?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – None

Wal Mart Cashier
Madison, WI

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in April 2013.

Interview Details – Online application, resulted in call back to a store further away than the one I applied for right around the corner from me. Pre interview from the front end manager, then kicked up to another personnel manager and friends, then the general manager.

Interview Question – The front end manager did the most difficult questions, and none of them were unexpected or that difficult.
Walmart generally uses very stock, "low liability" hiring, employment & firing processes. They call it "loss protection" and/or "shrink"... the same as merchandise on the floor. I suppose the nearest thing to difficult is how I have handled difficult "on the spot" situations and I had to give an example so....

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. You take what they offer and keep quiet. A lot of serious documentation on Wal-Mart's part, and contracts are largely for their protection against unionizing, pay increases, and length of employment. At point of sign on, they make sure you understand it's a temporary hire. I made sure to let them know I wanted to eventually move to location closer to me after my six months. I signed so many papers, I did not receive actual copies of my signed portions, only a folder with all the rules.

Hinesville, GA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in April 2010.

Interview Details – We had a group interview. They asked up to answer questions and explain our answers. It seemed to be a test of how we deal with a stressful situation. It can be hard to answer pointed questions in front of other people who may have already came up with the same answer.

Interview Question – how to deal with a rowdy customer   Answer Question

Interview Details – Standard internet questions line you up with opening per store. Generally they have temp or seasonal openings that if you do well on your evaluation they will call back after the seasonal openings and offer you a more permanent part time job. I actually worked 45+ hrs a week as part time.

Wal Mart Cashier Interview

Wal Mart Cashier
Port Charlotte, FL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Walmart in March 2014.

Interview Details – I received a phone call from Personnel asking if I was still interested in a position at their store. I set up a time to come in for an interview. When I arrived for the interview, I had to review some paperwork beforehand. I felt nervous but confident that I would get this job. I spoke to a supervisor for my first interview who asked me 3 questions. She was a little asian lady who was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. She seemed to be very satisfied with my answers and said I would be a great fit for the company. I was told to wait for a few minutes and soon the assistant manager came in. He asked me if I had any questions and I jokingly said, "Yeah, am I hired?" He proceeded to tell me I would be going to the next room over to get set up to do a drug test. I knew immediately that I had the job! Easiest interview experience ever!

Interview Question – None. You'd have to be an idiot to not know the answers to the questions they asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. It was either take it or leave it.
