Also, if the original post was by a recently hired employee, your personnel director should have covered this with you when you went through orientation. If not, then contact a member of personnel at your store and ask them. However, they will tell you exactly what I stated in the post above so its moot point.

The Walmart I work at it is 90 days. No CSM or manager will turn the key for discount. I left mine at home and they would not turn a key for me, I've been with them for 10 1/2 years!!!

As an employee, I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that you have to wait 90 days for your discount card. It's possible to key in a discount, but only if you have already received your card and have memorized or written down your discount number. until you have a number (receive card in mail) the only way to receive a discount is to know someone who already has one; which is also against policy. i guess the "Former" in your name explains why your incorrect.

You are right you have to be there for 90 days be for you get the card and get the discount.

Associates and their immediate family receive a 20% discount on anything purchased in the vision center. They gave me a 20 dollar coupon to use on my son's glasses, too. The glasses were just 38 dollars and I got 20 dollars off and then my 20% discount. Sweet ! Every little bit helps.

Well, i think it depends on your store because i started working at my store on july 31st and got my card 3 weeks later.. i just had to ask them for it and they bought out a huge stack of them cause people didn't even know that they had gotten there .. and during those three weeks i was able to get my discount by filling a discount slip and the csm keyed it in.. so yeah

It is 90 days...there is no keying it in. You either have a card or you don't. Your name is not in the system, authorized to have a discount til your 90 days is up. My husband had his discount & with some unforeseen events had to take a leave. Worked on getting a transfer but his leave expired before so when he finally got his transfer he had to be rehired & didn't have his discount til his 90 days was up again. So even though you may be management sounds like you need to refresh or update yourself. You may be breaking policy which could cost you your job. Title doesn't always mean right...think bout it.

yes they changed the policy it is 90 days after you have your evaluation and still have your job. no longer can you key it in. that was 13 yrs ago. so stop arguing over something stupid. however i want to know if you retire after fifteen years does the associate get to keep the discount card for life.

I used to work for walmart 6 years ago. At that time, they were issuing the discount card right away, but now when I came back to walmart, they want you to wait 90 days because walmart doesn't know that they going fire them or not.

It is not required for a CSM to turn a key for entering associate discount number. There is a button called (along the line of) trans disc on cashier end of register and they can manually enter the number. I know because I am a cashier I've done it numerous time but they don't want you to enter it manually because cashier have no proof who is that person.

If the form of payment has a name on it that is different than name on discount card, then, yes. Cash, probably not.
