Question about quitting. 
29th-Apr-2010 02:13 pm
a little before and after
I'm going to be giving my two weeks notice with Walmart. I was just wondering whether I can cash in my vacation, personal, or sick time at the end (or beginning) of all this, and if so, does anyone know the procedure for doing so? Thanks in advance, and dearest Walmart, thanks for the memories. (GAG.)

I was so fed with how bad the ridiculous,contradictory and impossible rules have become, as well as the eternal lack of help that I also quit a month ago and I just let them keep what time I had left. I put it to them as my reason for leaving was: "The level of stupidity has reached the breaking point."

Good luck to you all that keep up the fight, but I think that the corporation thinks that you can still do more with less than they have already cut on the bottom end. In my opinion I do believe they are going to be cutting down on AM's next and giving the ZMS more of the AM's jobs.

More for less... remember its not just the Walmart tagline for the customer, its the Walmart philosophy for everything including the associates.

You think they're stupid and you left without collecting your vacation pay? Lol.

AT the time I only had a few hours left, nothing to worry myself over, and if they had to pay me they would have put it in my check automatically.

I prefer to say it as "save money, work harder."

But yeah, the poster above me does have a valid point...

When I quit-no two week notice, I jsut told them I quit and left- and my last check had all my earned time (Vacation, sick, ect.)

It likely depends upon the state you live in, if you will get your vacation/personal time, you usually will never get money for accumulated sick time pay because I don't know of any state that requires it. But a lot of states do not require that you be paid for vacation and/or personal time accumulated. I live in a state (California) where they require vacation time to be paid, but not personal time. But whenever you quit, or are fired, you are likely only entitled to vacation time. Check your state employment laws to see what you are entitled to, Walmart has to abide by that.

If your local state laws don't provide for vacation time payment, you can still request it and see what happens. It never hurts to try.
