    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    I had already interviewed for the position before and lost out to someone with more experience and history in the store. I sat down with the current Assistant Manager who asked me prepared questions from a corporate printed packet for the specific position. Each was based on a specific competency for the position and related to requirements for the job. As I answered the questions my answers were rated on a scale of 1-5 with anything below three on any one question giving me an automatic fail. The questions were for specific examples of completing major projects on my own, flexibility when given short notice, handling interpersonal difficulties, exceeding customer service, fixing issues within my area and resolving problems outside of my area.

    Interview Questions

    • How have I helped someone else exceed a customer's expectations.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There is no real negotiation. You are given the automatic raise pre-set by corporate based on your current position.
