    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart (Columbus, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Fairly short. Asked three thought provoking questions. They hire on the spot. The position which you are interviewing for may not be the position they offer you. The interview is very laid back. They assume you are employable, and then discuss experiences to see if they should not hire you.

    Interview Questions

    • In what specific way have I achieved success in the past? What do I expect now?   Answer Question

    Began process with computer based application and assessment review questions. Initial interview by phone with Human Resources Department. Expanded questions based on resume. In store for second interview.Interviewed by an Assistant Manager from General Merchandise side of store, along with Department Manager. This interview was more in-depth as to relatable experiences which would benefit job performance; availability and scheduling needs; compensation and benefits. Although this was a professional process, it was not a stressful atmosphere. Management set the standard for approachable, service oriented persona.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    The interview process was standard. You are asked to give examples of a time when you handled a difficult situation, and a difficult person. Your work history is touched on, and as long as you can answer basic questions, you'll get to the next step, which is a drug test. If you can past the drug test, and accept the extremely low salary, you'll get hired.
