Department Manager Interview

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (North Adams, MA).

Interview

Answering 5 questions that are quite the same just repeated in a different way. 2, if available, Managers asking the repetitive questions for the 1st sitting. You are then scored by the interviewers and you wait out of the office until they decide yes or nay! It then goes to a 2nd sitting with the same basic questions done by an Assistant Manager, and a Dept Manager. The questions are then again scored and the same task of leaving office and being called back in if hired. If you go forward to the 3rd interview, you talk to the store Manager or other Assistant, given a yes or no and then do drug testing.

    Interview

    The manager read from a standard booklet. They manager didn't even look me in the eye. They responded with "thank you". Very uncomfortable. I really wish that it was more of a conversation. But I guess it's so that there is no way for someone to feel as if they were treated differently than anyone else and risk a law suit.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walmart in August 2015.

    Interview

    The questions are not "where do you see yourself in five years" or "if you had a superpower what would it be". Walmart's interview questions are competency related and usually start with "name a time" and then you explain the issue, how you solved including what resources you used to solve the issue.

    Interview Questions

    • Name a time you had a heavy workload and was given a difficult task that also had to be completed. What was the situation? What actions did you take? What was the outcome/results?   Answer Question
