How do I prepare for an interview at WalMart?


Question Posted Saturday November 15 2008, 5:03 pm

I was trying to find a job recently and put in job applications to all sorts of places I thought might be hiring. I know lots of places are currently hiring holiday help since Thanksgiving and Christmas are approaching. I put in applications to WalMart, KMart, Target, Fashion Bug, and Dollar General.

I got a call back this morning from WalMart. WalMart wants me to come in for an interview! I am excited and nervous but I've never had an interview before for WalMart.

What is an interview at WalMart like? What sort of questions does WalMart ask during an interview? Will I need to bring anything in particular to my WalMart interview? How should I dress for an interview at WalMart? Is there anything I need to know about WalMart before I am hired? Is there anything I should ask the person who interviews me at WalMart before I take a position?

As you can tell, I am clueless! Please help before it's time to go to WalMart for my interview!

Going for an interview at Wal-Mart is no different than going to an interview anywhere else. Dress in business casual wear (dress pants, sweater, blouse for girls, dress shirt, pants for boys) to be on the safe side. They'll look at how well you are groomed and present yourself.

You won't need to bring anything with you except for your resume if you have one and references. In this case you won't need to know a whole lot about the store and its history. They might however ask you what you think of it.

Definitely ask questions. Ask about the amount of hours, how much you will be paid and when, what job do they want you to do and days of the week you'll be working. Ask anything else you can think of that you really want to know in order to make a decision to work for them.

Above all if this is your first interview for a job tell them that and you're nervous. They'll make sure you feel comfortable as you progress. They know a lot of people have their first job through them.

If you've had a job before they'll ask you about that experience and why you left. You can also expect questions on how you handle people who are rude, idiots, angry and how you get along with others.

If you wan to fill a specific position like McDonalds or people greeting more so than being a cashier let them know and also if you suck at math don't take a position as cashier to begin with.
