    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart (Bentonville, AR) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Was pretty basic scenario questions all tied to the competencies they sent to me beforehand. Judgement, influence and communicate, planning, etc... They like the star method, I would have 4-5 situations prepared you could spin different ways depending on what they ask you. That really helped me feel prepared for whatever they ask. Also I would know a little about Walmart's culture to stand out

    Field Service Technician I - IV (ISD) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bentonville, AR
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Bentonville, AR) in July 2016.

    Interview

    High Expectations with Low Compensation. Nearly two weeks (which I'm told was rather fast) after applying online via their corporate careers website, I get a phone call from a recruiting agent. I had applied for several related positions. Some seemingly higher up the food chain than others. Naturally, I'm called for the lowest of the jobs and there was no communication between the other recruiters. I know this because not a day later after my interview, I get a call for one of the higher up positions but am forced to make a decision on the lower job. I tell this recruiter that I already interviewed for the lower position and am in consideration for the job. This eliminated my other opportunity.

    The scheduled face-to-face occurred only a couple days after the initial phone screening. I met with two "people managers" at the corporate site in Bentonville, AR. Although both stated that they were hiring for their department, only one was for the position that I was there for. Of course, this was the one in higher demand and also the worse of them. The conversation was casual. Questions were not technical specific to the job but situational. A sort of gauge on how I would handle different situations. They utilized a STAR interview method. So come ready with situational examples with specific information on very general questions.

    One of the biggest letdowns was that after describing the position, I felt mislead. I was thinking this was going to be a deployable technical position with a great deal of face-to-face customer relations. It is anything but. This position is a Help Desk lackey position where you work in a call center cube farm for 12 hour shifts (yes - 3 days at 12 hours + a 4 hour shift that breaks up your weekend) and answer support calls from around the world. On top of that, their call quota is rigid and tough. If you can't resolve the problem in less than 3 minutes, you are required to pass it along or shelf the problem so that you can take another call.

    Sorry but that's far too much dredge work for $13.50 /hour.

    When I asked about upward mobility, they were enthusiastic. "My" supervisor told his story how he started as a cashier and worked his way up to being a "people manager" (note: this term comes up frequently) in a matter of a few years. They wouldn't exactly map it out, though. Rather, they just said that it took "observation and networking" to move about within the company. So basically... put in the extra hours in learning another job (not paid) while sucking up to the next level up so that they can give you a good reference.

    A job offer was made and I even negotiated a higher rate of pay ($15.00 /hr) but between the low pay (I'd be taking a pay cut) and poor working hours (overnight shift - to make matters worse), I kindly had to decline.
