    Positive Experience
    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce in November 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to schedule a chat, and called on time. Had a great conversation with her overall about compensation expectations, and recruiting timelines. I was looking for an opening in May 2018, but it was too early. Recruiter was really professional and gave advice on timelines, hiring manager, and other related info that could help with recruiting later on.

    Assistant Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlsbad, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (Carlsbad, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I really enjoyed talking to all the interviewers and found that they were very polite.

    However the interview process was very dis-organized and there was no clarity who will be interviewing, when and for how long. I would get random requests from the recruiter to talk to more and more interviewers. Working with their recruiter was a very bad experience. It felt like he was on some express train and was in so much hurry. I repeatedly told him that I am not available for interview for a specific time and he kept pushing for that specific time.

    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.
