    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Vancouver, BC (Canada)).

    Interview

    Hiring manager was very polite and conversational. My interview was done in the cash office just behind the customer service desk. Interview was quite straightforward; I was asked only 2 questions and then lead to a group interview with 10 other people in the backroom of Walmart. Needless to say everyone was hired, but we all ended up with a position that we "desired".

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Brampton, ON (Canada)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview that was pretty easy going. Had to tell manager a little bit about myself, why i wanted to work at walmart, one or two scenario questions. Just a couple hours later i got a call for a group interview the following day. That was pretty easy going too. The manager was very friendly and so were all the other customers I talked to while waiting for the interview to begin. The actual interview consisted of a scenario we had to act out in pairs. We had to sell a random object together. Then we had a speed-dating type one-on-one interview with 4 managers that each asked us one question. For the store i applied to, the interviewing was really really easy. After, we all waited outside the interview room (8 of us) for the verdict and we all got hired. We had to come in the following day for the job offer.

    No negotiation really. Staring salary was above minimum wage slightly. They give more if you have previous experience.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Barrie, ON (Canada)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Barrie, ON (Canada)) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Had to do an assessment test. Received a call a few days later asking me to come in and see someone from management. I was surprised that there was no interview, so I guess that if you pass the assessment test, you don't need to go for an interview. They can figure out who you are from the assessment test. This is JUST a guess so I don't know for certain if that's the case.

    Interview Questions

    • None. Seems they were desperate for people (they were hiring 40 temporary part-time sales associates) and the manager asked about availability. BTW, the manager was straightforward, calm, and very friendly.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Part-time at this Walmart location means weekends from Friday evenings - Sunday evenings. Full-time positions are for Mondays-Fridays. The WalMart I applied to was open from 7am-11pm seven days a week. Shifts vary and that didn't work for me.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WalMart Canada (Markham, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call in 2-3 weeks (phone interview) questions were very basic, then they told me to come in for a group interview. There were at least 4 others in my group interview but the interview was comfortable. Managers asked each individual to tell everybody a bit about themselves and then conducted a small 1-on-1 interview for about 5 mins with each person.

    Phone interview Questions: (can't remember all, things might have changed)

    1. Give me an example of a time when your team member or customer was giving you a hard time and how did you handle it?

    2. How do you deal with pressure or a tough day at work?

    3. What does customer service mean to you?

    Interview Questions

    • Completing the long online questionnaire was the hard part.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    My advice to others is to make sure your available to work often.
