    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (Sunnyvale, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred by a friend. The whole interview process took only a few days. I was impressed with how fast they could move and their determination to recruit the best engineers. The whole process with very professional. Communications were all timely and effective.
    The interview itself was very reasonable, there were design questions, questions about past project, coding exercises, and a bit behavior questions. Communications during the interviews were all very open and engaging. The interviewers all made an effort to answer my questions. People seemed very happy and satisfied with their work.

    They made me a very attractive offer, and made effort to answer more of my project related questions when I couldn't decide between offers. I had to decline the offer due to personal interest in the another project. But I would highly recommend to give them a try. They have smart people and competitive compensation.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce.

    Interview

    This interview was through the career fair. I went on time for the interview and after waiting for an hour, finally it was my turn. There was only one question that was asked. It was regarding TDD. I answered all the questions that was shot at me. And the interviewer seemed really convinced. He told me I'd be hearing from them for next rounds or so soon. After a week I got a rejection email from them.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (San Bruno, CA).

    Interview

    Pretty disappointed how disorganized the recruitment team at Walmart eCommerce is.

    The interview process is confusing and inconsistent across different candidates. There is a lack of transparency of what's going on, and there was no clarity of next steps.

    The interview itself was average on difficulty, and it consisted of a behavioral and 2 case interviews. The interviewers are very considerate and easygoing.

    I had made it clear in-person to the hiring manager and in email three separate times to the recruiter that I had a deadline coming up from another firm. I did not receive a single response.

    Note to the recruiters: Value your candidates, so respond to them, whether positively or negatively. In the case of an impending deadline of conflicting offers, at least have the courtesy to understand to reply to them to let them know of a decision so they are not left confused and waiting on you. Even if there was no decision made, at least state that out.

    Incredibly disappointed in Walmart's recruitment team, as many other candidates are.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (Sunnyvale, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Started of on a positive note with the phone interview. The overall interviewing experience was fair enough even though one of the interviewer was least interested. When it was time to make an actual offer, The Hiring manager was low balling to accept an offer well below the median bay area salary by trying to sell walmart as a brand bigger than amazon. I get the feeling they think they are bigger than amazon now and candidates will accept whatever peanuts they offer to work for this great company which surely is not the case. What a waste of time.

    Interview

    Was a position for a javascript role a few years back. Had a great 30 minute conversation with a recruiter. Had crushing, painful experiences with managers and getting ripped off at prior jobs. Was looking for new work after a period of a year and half. She treated my gap in unemployment as if it was a thing. I was on GitHub making my skills better. But that cold, corporate fact meant more to her than my character, skills, and passion I have in Walmart. I thought I was having a conversation and getting through to this person. I thought these guys were innovators with a startup ethos. They're cutthroat bureaucrats to the bitter end. So disappointed.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (San Bruno, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    My interview process went very smooth. 20min call with recruiter. Was then asked to play a "brain game" on my phone named SkyRise City. It took about 30 min to complete. Afterwards, I was notified to go in for an in-person interview in San Bruno, CA. I interviewed with 3 different managers and each one was 45-min. The first interview was a UX case (analyzing a product webpage and how you would improve the design). The 2nd was a case on profitability and cost reduction. The 3rd was all behavioral questions. I thought the interview process went well overall. The interviewers were nice and welcoming. I enjoyed the environment overall.
