    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Walmart (Hanover, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Job Interview consisted of two parts with two different interviewers; both were managers. Both parts contained five questions involving generic situations, usually in the the form of "described a time when you...". Many of those questions where similar to each other and were very difficult to answer. Though you were allowed to use school as an example, I think the questions expected that you used work experience as an example. Second part had a section where you were allowed to ask questions to the manager. The entire interview process took about 45 minutes.

    Interview

    Received a call after a 2 months of submitting my application. It is better if you call their personnel manager to ask about open positions. After my first interview they asked me to return the following day for a second interview. In total i had two interviews, I have heard of three interviews for a single person.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walmart (Upper Saddle River, NJ) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I have had a multitude of customer service positions, ranging from managing a front end to running the camera and film area. This has allowed me to meet and understand the needs of a large customer base and rarely face a problem I have not encountered before. My brief time at the car dealership in Hackensack even gave me the skills to try to help sell extra items or up-sell specific items we are trying to move that week.

    I am available to be interviewed and to work 24/7. as long as minimal warning is given since I live less than 10 min away. It sounds like this job calls for some time working alone (which I actually prefer since I feel it minimized any possible distractions or confrontations that may arise, but also involve some team activities (which while I do not prefer I thoroughly enjoy getting to know my more positive associates where I can not only learn from them, but also get the job done more quickly- all while having fun and keeping the clocck running faster,

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    If you know someone who works there, name drop like crazy. Walmart is a who-do-you-know place to work. My interviews were easy because I knew several employees who vouched for me. Questions are about behavior.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Walmart in June 2013.

    Interview

    Both of the interviews were easy. I interviewed with the department zone manager and then an assistant manager. Both were very nice. They just read questions off a list. I don't think they actually cared what the answers were. If you have a pulse, and can pass a drug test, you are probably hired.
