Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart (Arlington, VA) in April 2015.

Interview

The interviewers were polite and caring. They followed up on EVERY reference and past job. They asked about specific job situations and how I handled them. They were interested in my relationships with co-workers and management. They knew exactly what they were looking for. Very pleasant. The interview was direct, comfortable, and full of good, common sense questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Bremen, GA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The first interview is with one person. They ask questions that are situational based. The second interview is with three people. The same questions are repeated almost verbatim. After the second interview, you leave the room, they decide whether to offer you the job. Once they offer it to you, they tell you what the pay is and send you for a drug test. After the drug test and background check is complete, you start a one day orientation and then go to work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    There will be two interviews taken place. The first is from a lower level member of management. The second from a higher level. They each ask a series of intertwined questions that have several questions within each. The first manager will either pass you on to the next manager or they will not depending on their level of interest.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions are very difficult. Just try to focus on the question as a whole not the individual questions within. Most of the managers are pretty laid back so feeling extremely nervous is unnecessary.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There really wasn't any negotiating. They said this is what you will make and they kind of make you feel like it is that or nothing. There is always someone else who will do the job for that pay. Of course they don't say that.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    I had twenty years experience in management and showed up to the interview in a professional suit and got hired as a department manager with half the pay. I interviewed the Asst. manager and she could not even tell me her sales quota for the month.

    Negotiation

    They had points for every year you are a manager with experience. What a joke.
