    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Walmart (Portland, OR) in January 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 2 step process with a phone interview and then a store tour interview. The phone interview seemed traditional enough, they asked about specific types of ways I had effected the business and what the out come was. The store tour was most interesting it was a hour and a half period of time that you walked the store and pretended you were a store manager as well as a small window where you were given a business situation and had 15 min to come up with a plan to present.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart (Atlanta, GA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I went through Soar consulting recruiting agency as a veteran. Walmart had a 2 round interview process for external hires. The first interview was with 3 executives face to face. I was flown to Bentonville for the second round of interviews where I was interviewed in front of 3 televisions per a televideo interview process. It was not a comfortable, personable interview which I found to be awkward, uncomfortable, and nerve racking.
