Senior Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walmart (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

Interview

Applied online. Recruiter contacted me by email. Asked me to fill out a questionnaire. All but one question were already answered in cover letter or resume (i.e., very lazy), but I replied promptly. Recruiter responded 5 days later with more questions, and I again replied promptly. Two days later he asked for my availability for interviews, and the day after that he said the position was filled by "a candidate that had already completed the hiring process." When I responded how unprofessional his behavior was, that he was engaging candidates so late in the process when they likely were going to make someone an offer, his response was that it was a standard practice for Walmart - so not even an apology. Does not inspire you to want to work there, if they treat candidates this poorly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Bentonville, AR) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview took place at local restaurant, with a senior manager, the contract company supervisor, and 2 co-workers. Very informal, and easy to talk. senior manager asked a difficult logic puzzle question... I got closest at the table to the correct answer. The rest of the interview was mostly a discussion about previous projects. I had worked with one of the other developers at the table for a few years with a different company, and our history together made the whole process much easier.
