Zone Manager Interview

Zone Manager
Springfield, MO

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in July 2009.

Interview Details – I set my career preference to include a Zone Manager position. A post of this position was at another location and through career preference, I selected a transfer. Then I called this store's personnel manager to tell her of my selection and two educational degrees. I was later contacted by the store manager and I had a telephone interview. I was one of three telephone interviews set up which is standard for Walmart. I was called the next day and told that I had gotten the position and transfer.

Interview Question – Describe a time when you had to make a difficult choice and what was the outcome.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was unable to negotiate a salary. However, I did tell the interviewer that could not find anyone better suited for this position given my good evaluations, and two educational degrees.

Zone Manager Interview

Zone Manager
Glenolden, PA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Walmart in September 2009.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by an assistant manager. She didn't ask me any questions pertaining to my skills or experience. I think they were in a big rush to fill the role. She looked at my background and quickly informed me that I was overqualified for the position. I had to ask which position I was being interviewed for. Then I was offered a choice between 2 positions and when I made my selection, was informed that the other one I hadn't chosen paid a little more. Then the acting store manager (co manager from another location) came and met me. I was instructed to fill out a form for my background check and waited around for 30 minutes for someone to tell me they would be in touch 2 days later.

Interview Question – I wasn't really asked any questions pertaining to my ability.   Answer Question
