Receiving Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Phoenix, AZ) in March 2015.

Interview

Applied late on a Thursday night, got a call that Friday, interviewed the following Tuesday. I arrived right on time and was told to wait for the interviewer. Wasn't long before I was taken back to their office. Questions were extremely basic behavioral and experience based. Most of them were just the same couple questions worded slightly differently. I answered 9 questions total between two separate interviewers. I received an offer on the spot, pending the usual background check and drug test results. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed - exactly what you'd expect for this sort of position. I was in and out in an hour flat.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart in July 2014.

    Interview

    Shortly after applying, I missed several calls from the personnel office. I entered for an interview which consisted of 4 or so S.T.A.R. type questions- Situation, Task, Action, Result. Just keep a collection of workplace memories off-hand and you should be fine. I had 24 hours to complete a urine drug test at a nearby doc-in-a-box, which took 2 days for the results to be sent back. The background check took 4 days. Shortly after, I attended orientation to watch a video and cross my Ts. Computer based learning modules took up 2 paid eight hour days, followed by very informal on-the-job training.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a situation where you have been tempted to break the rules to get the job done faster. What did you do? What was the result?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart.

    Interview

    Most of the assistant managers are people like you and me who struggle working long hours with not nearly enough pay for their lifestyle. So if you plan to get an interview soon with Walmart, just understand that we're all in the same boat here and they just want to find a person as reliable as themselves who need the work as much as they do. Pretend you're talking with yourself trying to explain to yourself why you need the job and what you're good at. They want to say yes as much as you do. So the process is fairly easy, same old questions about "what did you do in this and that situation?" "Tell me a time you used teamwork" ...etc. IF you had an interview with any company before then this one is no different. Just remember they are people too, just tell them what they want to hear, and be sincere.

    Interview Questions

    • I can't recall one with Walmart since by the time I got an interview with them I was ready for what they were gonna ask me more or less. The only difficult question is one you can't relate a story too, for example: When was a time where you put the customer before your needs? Now, have you ever went late to your brake spending thirty minutes helping a customer find something, or walked away from something important to assist somebody? Any numerous scenarios either find themselves in your head, but they as you to recall a time. But there are as many times as not, but sometimes you forget all those times you helped someone, you know, trying not to be self-centered and all. So, just imagine the most thing you did to help someone, like finding an item or directing them, or helping them out, or offering a discount, and sort of add what you sacrificed on your part in order to help them. Point is they want to hear a story when you went out of your way.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was offered the job, so I took it
