    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Walmart (Valdosta, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    It was a three part interview. I was first called by the Personal Manager who did a over the phone interview and confirmed certain information. She then progressed me to a face to face interview with department managers. The first manager confirmed my paper application info, we gave formal introductions and discussed company policies. He really provided a relaxed atmosphere and a foundation to the interviewing process.
     I like the way he asked questions concerning my experience in retail also Law Enforcement. We discussed my strengths, weaknesses and assets that u could contribute to the company.

    I was then progressed in 30 mins to the Assets Protection Manager where we elaborated my qualifications in a conference setting with several managers at once. It was a busy process where she allowed me to get comfortable and express my skills and professional experiences openly.
    We communicated standard procedure and properly executed teamwork importance. She explained the position and took me in a walk through of the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walmart (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Phone and then face to face. Phone interview was very easy and basic, then I was asked to come in for a face to face. The in person interview was fair and balanced. Talked about education and work history and what they want from the ideal candidate. Once you find out what they are looking for just plug in your answers to sell yourself as that "ideal candidate"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was interviewed from the outside, meaning I am not a current or have I ever been a walmart employee, but I had the experience in loss prevention they were seeking, but coming from the outside you are first interviewed by a department manager who scores your interview and if you score high enough, you are then interviewed by the manager who you will be working under. The questions you will be asked if you are coming from the outside are situational questions. Best advice is looking at the S.T.A.R interview website. It really gives you an idea on how they want you to answer questions, but you also need to use real life examples because they want detail. It will be the same thing with the department manager. The asset protection manager basically wanted my experience situations in loss prevention and wanted to know about my overall personal integrity.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time when you were faced with dealing with a difficult customer. Explain how you handled the situation and what steps you took to resolve the situation.   Answer Question
    • Name a time that you had to complete an assignment using team work. What role did you play and what steps did you take to complete the assignment effectively and on time.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There is really no negotiation. They will tell you what the position starts out at with no experience and then they will put your past experience whether from walmart or another company into the computer and that will determine a pay grade, so if you have experience in the position you are applying for more than likely you will start at a higher hourly wage than what the position actually starts at.

    Like any other interview I came dressed appropriately and 20 minutes early. As I walked in I introduced my self to any employee I saw. I gave my self a tour and glanced at where some products might be in the store. I watched the asset protection associates work so I get the feel for the job before the interview and training.
