Want to Work at Walmart? Think Again....
Nearly all companies employ the method online for those seeking work. Many require time consuming test taking mostly based on some sort of psychological schema by answering situational questions or personality. It can be time consuming and then when rejected you have no clue why.
This was a case from some friends of mine, both with degrees in various fields, some have management experience. In the old days, you go in person, fill out an app and talk to someone or schedule an interview time. I least, you could tell how the interview went etc. Walmart and others make this into a test adventure once you complete the online application.
My friends went to the Walmart website, went through the hoops, spent 45 min. with their exams for store managers and asst. store managers on the first round. Both failed the exams, consisting of situational and psychological exams. They were stunned, when they thought about the types of people working in Walmart, judging from their appearances. Fearless, they did a slightly different exam for just a worker in sales, no management this time, both thought their answers were fine (there really is not right or wrong response), yet both failed again! LOL! OMG! Now, they cannot re-apply for several months.
The only thing different about the Walmart tests were there was considerable amount of questions relating to those people who need welfare or related services because Walmart seems to benefit from hiring these people, in other words, one could say it is financial discrimination that benefit the poor and less educated. The other thing was what would be the minimum wage the applicant would accept. My friends both inserted $15-18 hr. Starting pay in Walmart averages $10 hr.
Makes you wonder what kind of people Walmart is seeking.......
