    How long do you have to work at Wal-Mart to qualify for Holiday pay?

    My sister was hired by Wal-Mart in early July. We are trying to figure out if she will get holiday pay for Thanksgiving. Some people seem to think yes, but she only has 4 1/2 months of service and I thought you have to work at least a year?

    fakehusk is almost correct....the associate must be employed 90 days prior to the holiday. The amount they are paid is the average hours worked of the prior 6 weeks to the holiday.

    • The previous person doesn't know what they are talking about. They take the average number of hours per week she has worked in the past 12 and pay her the average. Though I believe you have to be there at least 6 months to get it. Also, you have the previous scheduled day before the holiday and the next scheduled day after the holiday, to recieve it.

    • she will qualify for the holiday pay... I believe you have to be there at least two weeks prior to that pay inorder to qualify for it but she's pretty much going to get it as long as she worked that day.

    • hi.. holiday pay is available even from day one. a year's service is required only for confirmation of the job whuch would carry gratuity, insurance and provident coverage etc. holiday pay has nothing to do with it as it is given proportionate to days worked whether a permenant worker or not.
