Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Suffolk, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Suffolk, VA).

Interview

The interview took a while because a lot of people were interviewing that day and a few managers were running late. I sat down to interview and was asked a few different scenarios and I used my experiences from school to answer them. Waited. Waited longer. They gave me papers to take a drug test. I took it and passed. Received a phone call a few hours later with the job offer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Bolivar, TN) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Nothing major just asked when I am available plus someone outside of the company asked the manager to get me hired. So walked in, met the assistant manager, he basically asked me when I can be available and offered me the only available job (which was meat department)and I accepted it.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Paramount, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was relatively easy and fast paced as soon as your background check results come in. Walmart has a high turnover rate because a lot of people do not like working the long hours as well as the menial Petty culture that tends to plauge the workerplace. But the interview process was very easy going and I guess The Experience may be different depending on managers.

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    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.
