I feel like someone told me it was a week.

I do know that if you die, and as a result have to quit, Wal-Mart will rehire you in a week. *shrugs*

All I know is that at my old store, one of our ICS guys walked off the job one night and called about three days later to see if he could come back. Our co-manager told him that because he walked off (got a "WOJ" on his green sheet) he wouldn't be able to reapply for 90 days.

It could be different for other situations though. Call up the store you're planning on working at and speak to a member of management.

The policy is two full pay periods before you can re-apply.

Actually, if it's less than 30 days you can just be reinstated without losing anything. Any more than that is at manager's discretion depending on whether you quit and gave 2 weeks notice or if you were terminated for misconduct. Lots of variables here.

I was frozen food department manager, and i always got Exceeds Expectations. i suddenly had to move and couldnt get a transfer in time. so i didnt really have a 2 week notice but the GM understood my situation so im not sure what kinda status he left me at n all.

Thanks for all the replies

yep, we had a cashier walk off and she came back not even a week later after talking to the store manager.

I'm in the same boat as you and was told I could reapply in 60 days. Also it seems the new hires are getting more money. At the store I worked at they are only hiring part time. I was full time. They have a system of credits to decide your wages. If you have worked at another job for 6 years or more you are entitled to more money. If you were self emplyed for 6 years you are entitled to lower wages. I would like to see Sam Walton apply for a job at walmart and being self employed, told he's only entitled to low wages! He, who started Walmart was self employed.
17th-Nov-2016 05:02 pm (UTC) - Want to get my name of non-eligible list without getting a lawyer
They put me on the non-eligible list in 2009 for touching someone on the shoulder and being angry. She got in my way. I got angry. My stress was up and that was it. I was also sexually harassed in the workplace. I was not fired for that (I believe). After all these years I feel I have the right to start anew and have a job again with Walmart. My record is clean. When I call the secretary, I get the run-around. She says "we don't remember you". Instead of setting an appointment with the manager for me, she gives me a phone number to call. So when I call the number, it is "Joe" and to which he doesn't understand why I am calling this phone number and they give me another phone number to call. So I call that number. I talked to a person whom worked at the headquarters. I am told I would have to call the store were I worked at about that. Well, here we go with full-circle again. No help from that secretary the first time. However, that second phone number I was told to call, they did tell me I could have my name taken off the non-eligible list, but the people at that store where I worked at years ago would have to do it, whether the same people work there or not.
Okay, so I am asking here to see if the policy has changed. What "exactly" can I do? Can I get my good name off this non-eligible list by making an appointment or walk-in or do I have to get a lawyer to solve this matter. There are no charges on me. The person was not hurt by my touching her shoulder and telling her to leave me alone. But she sure did hit me good. Of course, she was allowed to keep her job.
Please tell me the truth and not a run-around.
