Assistant Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Florence, AL
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walmart (Florence, AL) in March 2008.

Interview

Behavioral Interview lasted about 20-30 minutes. I believe there were 8 questions. The interviewer did not seem interested in my answers, which led me to believe their choice was already made.

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Raleigh, NC) in January 2012.

    Interview

    In my case it was an internal interview (I already worked for the company), however the questions are the same for internal/external interviewees. There are about 5 questions ranging over 5 competencies (1 Question per area). The questions are designed to show thought in your decision making as well as clear leadership. The panel interview will be either 2 or 3 managers, usually store managers sometimes shift managers. There really isn't anything too complicated about the process, and usually if they've called you for an interview, the actual interview is just a formality-provided you don't absolutely tank it. It's mainly about getting the call asking if you wish to interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (San Jose, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted about group/panel interviews at Walmart. I attended the panel interview and met with 2 store managers. They asked basic behavioral questions. Then I met with the HR market representative and she told me more about the position. She wanted me to meet with the Market Manager and said she would set up a phone interview. After the phone interview, they said they would get back to me in a week. I have called once a week for 3 weeks each time leaving my name and number to contact me. No response from them at all.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Colorado Springs, CO) in July 2011.

    Interview

    worlds largest company=worlds most impersonal hiring process. It's all very technology driven/impersonal. Finally talked with store manager pretty far into it after email correspondence and online testing (way too early in process).
    At that point it dawned on me how tough it would be to relate to any of the people on staff mostly, and I bailed.

    Reasons for Declining

    was looking to do something temporarily, but honestly I couldn't bring myself to work with the incompetent staff I'd be helping to manage.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Chelmsford, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    So, I interview and accepted a job at Walmart. I walked in and was interviewed by the Market Human Resources person and the Store Manager of the location. The MHRM was polite and happy, whereas the Store Manager was very unprofessional and all over the place. It was a very difficult interview because one person was "serious" and the other was "not serious". They ask those situational based questions that are pretty stupid such as "tell me about a time when you did X Y or Z and what was the result". I accepted the job at Walmart for 42k.... The bonus is paid after a solid year of performance and not quarterly.... The first day I watched an "anti-union propaganda video" that every single employee watches.

    I had some training for the position for 4 weeks and let me tell you, the people I was with were the classic top notch rejects of society. I looked around the room thinking "what have I gotten myself into". They are happy people overall because 42k is about as good as their ever going to make in their lives.

    Buyer beware.

    Negotiation

    No real negotiating. They basically tell you what its gonna be. it varies slightly but expect 40k ish. I recommend interviewing at Target where professionals work. Walmart is amateur hour.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walmart (Phoenix, AZ) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The interviewer asked a series of behavioral questions - Describe a time you had a challenging task. What were the challenges? What steps did you take to overcome those challenges? Did you successfully complete the task? and Describe a time when you disagreed with another person. How did you disagree? What steps did you take to resolve the disagreement? What was the outcome of the encounter? But it all made no damned difference at all - because the successful applicant for the job was ALREADY selected!

    Interview

    I recieved a phone call from the Store Manager while at home and he asked when we could set up and interview. I told him I was willing to do it right then. The questions came straight off of the compantancies sheet for an assistant manager(Can be found on the WIRE if you are currently a Wal-Mart employee). I only had one interview. I found out I got the job the next day.
