    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Walmart (Carrollton, TX).

    Interview

    The interview was really relaxed. They delved deep into my previous retail experience so be prepared to compare your retail experience with Walmart. The questions will make you think and often had 3 parts to them. Be sure to use the STAR method. Also make sure to describe your process of making a decision or do something when answering the question.

    I am currently waiting to hear back.

    Interview

    I applied online passed the test. The next day i received a phone call from the HR coordinator for a brief 5-minute phone interview. Next I was invited for a face to face interview which was held at a hotel. The interviewer was a nice guy and a Co - Manager at one of the local stores. He told me my resume looks great and he wished that he has an open position at his store. Straight up out the box he said there are 24 applicants that they were interviewing for 3 open positions. He said that he has no idea how HR will be picking the most qualified applicant. At the end of the interview he stated that i should be hearing from HR. The interview happened a day ago i will be revising the offer portion.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    The phone interview with HR was more intense than those I had with other companies. Be prepared to give examples of different management scenarios (planning, development, opportunities, etc.). The second interview was competency based but you also learn more about the company. Everyone was very professional but relaxed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walmart (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took about 30 minutes. They asked basic interview questions. They wanted to hear more about your experience than your education. The manager and co-manager were very friendly. It was a very easy, very fair, interview. Be sure to have a few questions to have at the end and be sure to do your research on the company and the opportunities they have available. Don't be afraid to show your personality.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart (Fort Worth, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through the online portal, was contacted within 2 weeks by a Store Mgr. They told me that even though I was a recent grad and had extensive experience in retail and professional services, with experience in leading, coaching, and developing others, I needed to be in a dept/support mgr role for at least a year. All due respect, I understand that filling outs, maintaining inventory, and task management can be a long learning process for a typical associate but my resume and career clearly indicates that I could be an exception, however I was still excluded from the process. Corporate clearly prioritizes "lifers", and by that, I mean those in their existing workforce that have no external development, have a lack of higher education, and exploits their desperation as they know their "suitable" candidate has zero opportunities elsewhere. I was told by the store manager that they were constantly looking at new talent for the position as it has high turnover; flex scheduling, long hours, high stress due to nature of retail...which further solidifies my assessment of their hiring strategy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Wausau, WI) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online to 5 different locations and got 3 phone interviews out of the 5. Made it to the second interview to one of the locations but didn't get the job. I didn't get the second location that I applied in either. But the key is not to give up. I was being invited for another phone interview and this time I got the job. Those past interviews helped me to ace the third interview.
