I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Walmart in September 2013.
Interview Details – You start the process by filling out a online application. In My case they called me about 2-3 weeks afterward. They asked a few questions about hours I am available. Then set up a interview in person with a department management person. They asked me questions about problem solving and what I would do in different situations with customers and employees. Be ready to give examples. Then you may get another interview and they will offer you the job if you score better that the others. I interviewed the second time with My Department assistant manager.

Interview Details –
Applied online for a position with multiple confirmed openings. I was contacted for my first interview 6 weeks after the application.
I went through two interviews as part of the hiring process (though some positions require three interviews). The first interview was done with a supervisor over the applied position. The second interview was done with a manager over the position. The majority of the questions were the typical interview questions, most of the questions were repeated with different wording in the second interview. Typically if you do well enough in the first interview, they will immediately either perform your second interview or at least schedule it.
After successfully completing both interviews, your job offer will be dependent on a drug-screening done off-site at a clinic. Please note that coming up positive for marijuana will disqualify you from employment even in states where recreational and medicinal use is legalized.
After completing the drug screening, there was 1 week of primarily computer-based training. This training is excruciatingly boring, 8 hours of reading text on a screen can drag on you.
Interview Question –
Describe a moment when someone went beyond the call of duty to provide you excellent customer service OR when you did the same for a customer.
This question can be quite difficult if you have minimal experience in a customer service environment. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Pay rates are fixed within company, policy does not allow for offering different pay rates.

Interview Question – Some of the questions are multifaceted. For each question they are looking for the situation, the action you took and the result of the actions. Answer Question
