Like the title says I have been browsing on the wire and it seems the only job postings that are available on the wire are for management. I would like to look up the entry jobs (paygrades 1-5 essentially).
12th-Jun-2014 04:18 pm - help?
how do you find the leadership assessment exam do you type in "leadership assessment"? I tried taking the exam but about 15 different thinks popped up? it wasn't clear, I've bee at walmart for a year and I have had supervisor experience but I can't get my managers to pull their head out of there @$$ and to help me.... I was told it's the one that you take once every so often.
1st-Apr-2014 03:28 am - new dress code?
[BL] lk; madeline pratt dress
We've been hearing rumors at our store of a new dress code - something along the lines of black pants, white shirts and smocks. Anyone else hearing about this? What's going on with the dress code and does anyone know what's happening with it? Our store manager has been telling associates not to buy anymore khaki pants. Personally, I'm not really loving the idea of having to buy a whole new wardrobe (again) for this.

Thanks! :)

One of my friends/coworkers has been with walmart 7 months, and full time for 3, and on this most recent myshare bonus, he gets a whopping 14 bucks. [Regular full time people get just over $113, yea, some bonus]. I'm trying to figure out why he's not receiving the full bonus when he works a consistent 38 hours a week. He's going to ask personnel tomorrow but I figured I'd ask all of you as well, just in case.

For working between 7am on Thanksgiving and 7am on Black Friday, they gave us a 25% one time discount. [I plan on getting a ps3, I put one on layaway to hold it JUST IN CASE we didn't have any in stock when it came up for using it]

While trying to figure out how much it'll cost me, do I add sales tax first, then take off my discount, -or- do I do it the other way around, take off my discount then add sales tax? [it would be one thing if they came out the same number, but they don't, a difference of about 6 bucks]

Of course, I love how the powers that be waited until about two weeks before hand to tell us about it. [Or really, tell anything about anything]. If I had known back in Sept when layaway opened, I woulda put my PS3 on then, slowly made my payments, so that when it was time to cancel it out and rebuy it, it'll already be mostly paid off.

That being said. How chaotic was your Thanksgiving/Black Friday? We had a fight in ours over the Doc McStuffins doll [it's even on youtube apparently]. And it was just a clusterfuck as no one told US where anything was going to be. So I had customers ask me where everything was going to be. [A few days before, yea, I can tell them we're not allowed to give out that info, but the day of, they get mad at me because management didn't tell us anything]. AND the 1-hour Guarantee cards, fine in theory, but I think we could have been trained better on that [and told the customers that they didn't have to go in the lines that they were in. I handled large item pickup, and at least a third of the customers could have went to the other lines/get their other things at the same time.

Scar13 - sexy goth girl
So...I have jury duty summons. I don't know if I'm officially chosen to do so yet, as I won't know until the beginning of November. I can't put in the whole month [it told me I needed to be available between November 4th-November 29th] because, well, I like to work. And I like getting paid.

So how does this work at Walmart?
21st-Sep-2013 01:03 am - Walmart Support Manager question
Hi there! I have recently applied to a Support Manager position with Walmart from the fitting rooms associate position. I am wondering what some of the ins and out will be for the position. What will my major role be in the company and to associates?
8th-Sep-2013 04:31 am - Question about the bonus
Hi, i'm new here, but not walmart. I've worked at 2 other walmart supercenters. I've been working at the neighborhood market since Feb. 6, 2013. I was told i'd get my bonus on this upcoming check but the bonus would be an addition $260-380, and my paystub says my check should only be $474 (usual). Is the bonus not on the paystub and a seperate check or what?
17th-Jul-2013 08:32 pm - Transferring to a NEW store...

Nearly two months ago I updated my preferences through the wire concerning two new stores soon-to-open in my city, one of them being a plain ol' walmart and the other a neighborhood market. At that time there were no positions due they weren't staffing it yet. Fast forward two-three weeks ago, they opened a hiring center.

So here's my curiosity for anyone who had transferred...

I am aware we, as associates get priority before the new-hires. So, of course I called and was told to come in as a walk-in and talk with the new store manager and since I was a transfer I wouldn't need to go through an interview...or so I was told. Well, lo and behold - Neighborhood Market has a Deli and since I'm familiar with all the in's-and-out's (I'm currently a deli associate), I decided to go for this one. So I briefly talked with an AM for NM and was a bit surprised when he said he wanted to interview me, so we set a date two days later. Once the date came around, I went in, told him my daily tasks, asked me a scenario question, complimented me along the way that I knew my stuff and would be helpful having me around, mentioned others have come in and weren't suited, etc... So, as we were nearing the end, he said he wanted me to speak with someone else and asked me to wait with the others in the waiting area. I was feeling pretty good then, so when he called me again and offered his hand I -honestly-  thought I got a position. Instead, he said he'd called me in a couple of weeks (I think) and as he took my number, he said he liked for me to work with him and stuff. That, left me confused.

So, my question is: should I wait for the call or should I call the hiring center? It's been a week and 2 days since the interview and I have, naturally, not heard from them. I'll let you know that it's been a week now since the people in personnel put up the flyer announcing a NM was opening for those interested.
