4) How would you deal with an upset customerr?

  • I would find out why they are upset.   If the customer was upset with an item already purchased I would ask the customer if they had their receipt and if so I would direct them to customer service to refund their money or replace the item.  If the customer was upset that they could not find what they are looking for I would find it for them and not just point them in a general direction.
  • Tip!  Learn Walmart’s Return Policy as it may help you answer this question.

5) What experience do you have?

  • If you have any retail experience talk about it.  If you have any cashier experience talk about it.   If you don’t have retail experience or any other type of experience don’t worry.  Walmart hires lots of first time workers.

6) Why should I hire you?

I don’t care if you are applying for a position as an overnight stocker, pharmacy technician, or department manager, the best way to answer this question is to re-read the job description and find skills that you have that match that job description. After rereading the job description for cashier here is what I found.

  • Provides excellent customer service through  Practicing the 10-Foot Attitude.   So we have skill number one which is people skills.
  • Must maintain excellent productivity levels by scanning merchandise quickly and accurately (skill number two: working quickly and accurately in a timely manner).
  • Achieving the scanning percentage goal. Attending all Cashier training sessions (skill three which is a quick learner).
  • Looking at the qualification section, it states they are looking for someone with mathematical skills notability adding and subtraction and working with decimals.  This leads to skill number four which is math skills.  Note that you do not have to be a math professor to be good at making change so state you have great math skills.

So in the example of cashier interview when they ask why should I hire you I would state:

  1. I have excellent people skills and enjoy meeting new people.
  2. I can perform tasks quickly and accurately in a timely manner.
  3. I am a quick learner.
  4. I have great math skills and I am comfortable with working with foreign currency
