Spark Studio integrates popular Walmart.com pins from Pinterest to create a discovery shopping experience on Walmart.com. Shoppers inspire each other by browsing and pinning products by category like brands, color, and top-pinned. Select a pin to get more information, re-pin it, rate or review it, or buy it from Walmart.com.

    Pros

    Not what I expected!
    Some of the smartest, fastest moving business people in the industry who get to specialize in a small field all help propel your creative to be seen by more eyes than most any eCommerce (2nd to Amazon).

    Creative management nourishes talent with fun jobs that fit their expertise. Be honest about your strengths because there is probably a place for them!

    Love my time there, and push the industry's best creatives to give them a look.

    Cons

    Corporate cheers. :( I think Apple stores salespeople have a similar cheer, but its strange in an office place.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you can to make the creative team feel unique.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Walmart eCommerce (San Bruno, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1 phone interview:- basic algorithms, java, multithreading
    5 on-site interviews:- NDA. I felt the focus was not only on algorithms and programming skills, but also on complex design questions.
    The interviewers were very smart and friendly. In fact, I learned a couple of new things in the interviews. They didn't care if I knew some random puzzles or trick solutions, but they did evaluate me based on my approach.

    I had several offers and interviews setup, but WalmartLabs made me a very competitive offer. Also, the technology I will get to be working on is the exact same thing I was looking for.

    The process was very smooth, every interviewer was on time, and the recruiter was very helpful till the end. I was highly impressed by the professionalism they depicted.
