Senior Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Bentonville, AR
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Walmart (Bentonville, AR).

Interview

The first step was a phone screen with HR recruiter. If you passed that, then next phone/webcam interview with hiring manager + another colleague. If you pass that, you go to Bentonville for a day to meet with the head of the group and some folks from other groups. ADVICE: ask to speak to a peer in the group before you make your decision - you to verify the things you've heard.

    Walmart flew me to Bentonville, AR, I stayed two days after the initial phone interview. This second interview was all day long. The most important part of the process was a Panel Interview with 5 panelists, 5 questions testing competencies. Walmart values cultural fit and requires mostly that you reside in Bentonville, AR. During the day long interview I was escorted by a real estate agent to see houses and see the town. Salary and benefit negotiations were done over the phone at a later date, after the offer was submitted.
