    The culture is just amazing. Anyone from any background can fit in here and be themselves. Great work life balance. Data driven environment. Anyone and Everyone will generally help you if you ask for assistance. Great place to add value .


    It's just really big and you may find yourself spending a lot of time finding who the right person is and where - that you need to contact to get the job done. Similarly, years of experience in the same organization will help cause that will accrue as organizational knowledge.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Bruno, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Walmart eCommerce (San Bruno, CA).


    I interviewed with Walmart for the Front End Software Engineer role. I was first contacted by the Walmart Recruiting team. I interviewed with both Walmart Labs and Walmart eCommerce teams. The entire interview process was about 2 weeks. It was pretty standard. There were phone screens, one for each team. The person who interviewed me from the Walmart Labs team was really nice and he seemed very skilled and knew what he was talking about. He asked some JavaScript questions mostly DOM related. The other interview (the one with Walmart eCommerce), however, went really bad. The interviewer asked me to implement a data structure in JavaScript and stopped paying attention to me. I could hear him watching some video in the background. He didn't respond for a few second after I asked him a question. Anyways, both the interviews went well and they brought me onsite. Two different onsite interviews. The questions were pretty basic algorithmic questions. They were not even tough. If you're good with basic Algorithms and Data Structures, you're good. Both the teams liked me and eCommerce extended an offer, which I declined. I wasn't happy with the interview experience and so I declined.
