Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walmart (Indianapolis, IN).

Interview

It was an easy, casual interview. The questions were pretty canned, as might be expected for a job at this level. Tell us a challenge you've overcome, what are your strengths and weaknesses, etc. It was not stressful, but take a few minutes to think out your answers to the generic questions ahead of time so you're not caught off guard.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart (Montgomery, IL).

    Interview

    Very general questions. Depending on which member of management you get they will either ask 10 questionso or 5. They are basically the same questions just asking to specify different examples of the same situation. You would get a 1st interview with a supervisor. Then the second interview with an assistant manager (same questions as the 1st interview). If you passed both you would get sent for a drug test and back round check. If you passed both you would get called in for a 3rd interview which was just a paper signing and congratulations on getting the job.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Derry, NH) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Incredibly easy. I sent in the application electronically and got a call not 30 minutes after to set up an interview. The entire process took about a week, and the woman interviewing me was incredibly nice and laid back. She asked me one question and it was like I had the job instantly. They called me a day later asking to come in for a job offer that Friday, and I was at orientation by the following Monday.

    Interview Questions

    • They only gave me a single interview question and it was: Customer Service means a lot to us. We like our employees to go the extra mile when helping our customers. What was one time time when you went above and beyond to help a customer in need of assistance? (I was told that if you didn't have prior retail experience a school or other work experience was perfectly acceptable).   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    My interviewer was very respectful and very to the point. My interview probably only lasted about 20 minutes. They asked very basic questions and didn't make me feel uncomfortable. They were dressed casual not even in Walmart clothes and offered me a soda during the process. Very painless and very boring. Not challenging at all
