    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Wichita, KS) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Internals will get one interview against two other people. Externals will get two against an undetermined amount of people. For supervisors it's mostly just questions about situations you've overcome or ways you've instilled high customer service. About 6 questions with one assistant manager. This job is usually only given to Internals as it requires an intimate knowledge of Wal-Mart's processes. There are six at my store and only one was hired outside the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Goddard, KS) in November 2012.

    Interview

    Walmart policy is to be interviewed by two completely incompatible managers to base a hiring decision on agreeable choice. I was interviewed by 2 assistant managers, both off my first impression was clearly they wasn't a perfect pick for management. At that moment I knew I'd regret even applying. I knew off my employment background an strong work ethics, that Walmart as a company is mismanaged. Was hired based only for photo lab technician. That was not the case, as to fellow employees my leadership skills an people skills proved, I was to be promoted promptly. Which I was within a month of employment. I spoke of some who shouldn't be in management position an was then listed as the "Impact Leader". When corporate came thru for visits, I'd thought the open door policy was ethical . Needless to say it's NOT. An if you as the assiocate or department manager speaks up, plan on getting Coached for freedom of speech an belittled.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Walmart (Wichita, KS) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Meet with the Assistant Manager first who immediately recommneded a second interview with the Store Manager. Relaxed atmosphere but proper dress attire is recommended. If jeans are worn they should be pressed along with a nice shirt or blouse. Refrain from wearing shorts, wrinkled, or questionable clothing. Was pretty much hired on the spot and the job offer was officially extended after the successful completion of the background and drug test which "MUST" be done within 24 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • Primarily they were behavioral questions?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not a lot of rooms for negotiation but pay increases were offered based on prior work history. The benefits make up the difference for the lost in pay. Also, if you are fortunate to work close to home not having to spend extra money on gas and lunch is worth at least $2 to $3 an hour. Despite what people say Wal-Mart is a great company to work for and the opportunities come quickly if you are willing to apply yourself. Just like any other job you must work hard and be dedicated if you expect to be rewarded.
