I have been working at Walmart eCommerce full-time (More than 3 years)
Best career ever, I love working here . I thought it would be a disaster due to the bad PR walmart gets. Then I started my first day. Over 2 years later I have zero complaints. Such honesty and respect from your peers and cross functional partners , advanced learning opportunities available for free all the time . Beautiful campus . I came from an absolutely horrible company in Seattle (not AZ) and honestly it took me months to finally see that I didn't have to have a wall up 24:7 to protect myself . My coworkers are super smart, always willing to jump in and help and treat you like family . I can't imagine working or living anywhere else. Laser focused teams , free parking , food , drinks . Excellent Heath care and benefits , great pay . Our Ceo and execs walk the walk. It's inspirational and I haven't dreaded going to work once , I used to dread everyday . Life is too short. If your in a miserable , degrading job. Give your notice. There are still nice people in the world to work with !!
Coming from start up mayhem , you have to learn to slow down a bit due to the size of the company. But that is a bonus because we actually get things done more efficiently because we only have to do it once .
Advice to Management
With rapid growth sometimes communication gets a little broken. But everyone is empowered to ask questions so if you need help. Just ask. Management is there for your support 100%
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (San Bruno, CA).
I spoke with a recruiter who reached out to me after I applied on-line, and then had a 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager. I was asked to come in to interview with 4 people, 30 minutes each. Nobody seemed to know what to ask minus a few probability questions that seemed so irrelevant and were the perfect way to throw someone off for the rest of the interview process. Everyone kept looking at the clock, complaining about how busy they were for Holiday and having to be in meetings. Very weird vibe.
