Primary tasks for a Walmart greeter:

Everyday tasks for this Walmart employee include:

  1. Greeting customers at store entrances
  2. Assisting customers with cart and/or basket selection
  3. Suggesting picking up a coupon booklet for promotions/money-saving discounts
  4. Responding to customers who have questions about product and/or service locations
  5. Helping customers with disabilities find mobility carts (if available)
  6. Working with cart associate to make sure there are enough available carts in the store
  7. Cross-checking customer receipts when they exit

In addition to providing excellent customer service, store managers may also ask for their assistance with cleanup. This includes:

  1. Entrance way cleaning (specifically during rainy and snowy weather or autumn months when leaves can fly in)
  2. Sweeping (and possibly mopping) entrance way throughout the seasons
  3. Restroom cleaning (may be assigned to janitorial associate instead, ask for details)

Pay rates for a Walmart greeter:

Depending on the city you live in, general minimum wage may be anywhere from $7.25 per hour to $10.35 per hour (as of 2018). According to Walmart's official site, hourly associates make a little over minimum wage at $11 per hour. That's an annual, guesstimated salary of $22,880 for a 40-hour workweek. Location, grade level and experience potentially may raise those rates. The store's site also confirms that 70 percent of the managers started as hourly associates so there are opportunities for career growth.

Benefits for a part-time Walmart greeter:

With a pharmacy in every store and (often) an optical center nearby, this can make health care needs quite convenient for greeters. Paid vacation days; 401(k) retirement programs and health packages (vision, dental, medical, life insurance); and short-term and long-term disability can be added during your initial enrollment period.

Part-timers usually must work a minimum of 30 hours per week to be eligible for medical benefits, wait a 52-week wait period and have a two-month grace period. So if you're hired on February 1, 2019, and work an average of 30 hours per week without a break in employment for 13 weeks or more, your medical coverage will start on April 1, 2020. Your spouse, domestic partner (together for a minimum of 12 months) and/or dependents (under the age of 26) are also eligible.

Benefits for a full-time Walmart greeter:

Unlike the part-timer (or temporary worker), full-time employees' initial enrollment period is between their first paycheck and one day prior to their 89th continuous, full-time employment date. So if you're hired on February 1, 2019, your medical coverage may start on April 30, 2019. The start date for medical coverage will be whichever is later between the first day of the calendar month or the eligibility date (i.e., the 89th day of work).

Benefits include medical HMO plans, vision, dental (two full calendar years), accidental death and dismemberment insurance (AD&D), critical illness insurance and accident insurance. Short-term and long-term disability insurance, life insurance, business travel accident insurance, and company-paid life insurance are also options after during initial enrollment.

If enrolling for any of the above outside of your initial enrollment period, greeters may have to wait 12 months to sign up.
