    Walmart Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oshawa, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Oshawa, ON (Canada)) in August 2015.

    Interview

    After applying online, one of the managers will phone you and do a phone interview asking general questions about you, and "What would you do if...?" type questions.

    If you pass the phone interview, you will be invited to a group interview. There will be approximately 10 other applicants there. The first phase is partnering up with one other candidate and asking about them, who they are, what they do, why they applied to wamart, etc. After chatting with the other candidate for about 5 minutes, you will be asked to introduce *them* to the group. The second phase splits up the group, and this case it was all cashier applicants, so we had one group talking about the Walmart Rewards MasterCard, where you learned about the benefits of the card, and had to sell the card to other members in that group. The other group was doing speed-interviews with all the managers. Quick, fast-paced answers are required here as it's done a-la Musical Chairs style, all the managers shift seats every 60 seconds.

    If you pass the group-interview, you will be requested to come to a one-on-one interview with the general manager of the store.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at WalMart Canada in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and the next day I received a phone call. I missed the call and a couple days later I called Walmart letting them know I was still interested in the position. I was asked about my availability and position I applied for and I was told she would print off my application and give it to the manager in that department.

    About a week or so later I received another call and it was a manager. I was told a group interview would be occurring the next day and I was asked if I would be able to attend, I said yes. I was then asked about my availability and why do I want to work for Walmart. The manager then asked me about six behavioral type questions. I found the manager very easy to talk too and easy going as well.

    The group interview consisted of five parts. The first part was introducing your partner. The second part was selling the Walmart Rewards MasterCard, then there was a role-play scenario that occurred with my partner. From there candidates received a sheet of paper that had some questions on it (they had to do with selling/customer service) and we had to answer them. The last part consisted of two managers sitting in separate spots in the room and they asked each candidate one question each. We then got asked again about our availability and then it ended.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at WalMart Canada.

    Interview

    Applied online, two weeks later I got a call asking about my work history and availability and other basic questions that were on my application. They said I was successful and someone would call in 4 days. That person called 1 month later. She asked questions like, "Name a time that you went above and beyond in your job" for maybe 5-10 mins. After she said someone would be in contact. Four days later I was asked to come in for a group interview. There was 4 of us and we were paired off. We filled out paper work (criminal record and references) and then met all the managers and they left after. We had to introduce our partner, then we acted out a situation and discuss the problems. After we had to sell a product to our partner (Off bug spray clip, Walmart rewards MasterCard). Then all the managers came back and we did a speed dating type thing where they each individually asked us a question and we had 90 seconds to respond. The whole group interview took about an hour and they said someone would contact us in 24-48 hours whether we were successful or not. I was successful and they said someone would contact me later. 5 days later someone called and asked me to come in for an interview with the store manager. Took about 15 mins very quick and easy, the store manager officially hires you and you sign paperwork and you are invited to orientation. It was a VERY long process for me but very easy.

    Produce Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in East Windsor, ON (Canada)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (East Windsor, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    There was two types of interview process. The first one was over the phone. The second is a group session (of where there would be 10 or 11 other people depending on how many are attending the session). I did managed to get through with the phone interview (asking me various questions of when my availability is and general interview question as well as "Tell me about a time when...." type questions). When I got to the group session (also known as a group interview) there was 3 types of scenarios. The first scenario was basically introducing the person next to you. The second scenario was trying to sell a product to a customer (in which case the product will be random but real). That took place before a talk about what Wal-Mart is about. The third scenario is a loud interview (with 4 different managers) giving a "Tell me about a time when...." question in which case you have to answer within 40 seconds (and there are 4 questions - in which case each manager can give out one question per candidate). I guess the last was a Wal-Mart cheer. So far, they mentioned that they would give a call back within a day or two (in which case it has already passed a day or two) and that I did not hear back from Wal-Mart with an offer. I had a similar type of interview back in December of 2014 (that I was applying for both Tire and Lube and Overnight 3rd stock). They gave me a call back within the two-day range and told me that they already chosen a candidate who skills are more qualified. Did I felt very satisfied about both of these Wal-Mart interviews? Not really - but I did remembered that for the Wal-Mart December 2014 interview I received a survey within a week and sent them an email to say that it would be easier if they make the interview process easier by not asking "Tell me about a time...." questions. I don't think Wal-Mart really cares about those surveys anyways. They never bothered to reply to those surveys.

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at WalMart Canada in July 2015.

    Interview

    Took 3 months from online application to the interview.
    Finally get the interview and 2 weeks to receive an email advising I've not been selected.
    Was supposed to receive feedback from the interviewer and no one called back, even if I requested for feedback. Disappointing process. I know I maybe not have the "fit" for this company but after 3 months, a feedback would be appreciated.
