Where I worked you had to wear tan to brown pants(I was garden mgr so I could wear jeans in the summer) and navy blue shirts. They have a tiered pay system depending on your postition. Cashiers are tier 3. So it would bemore than min wage. Also different store do have different rules they enforce. Ive worked in one store that succked and one I really loved. Good luck, I hope you get it and enjoy it.

 its blue and khaki and its  suppose to be a "polo" shirt. well starting at wm depends on your expirence and stuff i started at 7.80 but in three years i was making 9.90 bc they screwed up my start pay and owed me like 2 raises. it also depends on your state idk what ur min wage is i know nys is 7.75? or 7.25 and we are going up to 9 idk when thats something u would have to ask them, and honestly i had nthing but bad expirences working for walmart, good luck! maybe and hopefully you wont have the same bad luck

Around here, it's khaki pants or skirts, though I've seen jeans (night crew), and a blue shirt-most stores without writing. Federal minimum wage is $7.25, but cashiers at my so's store start around $8 or $9. We're in the Lehigh Valley part of PA.

Khaki pants and a dark blue shirt unless in lawn and garden, then you can wear a green shirt. My husband works a part time second job there and he started at $8.45 an hour. Wages also depend where you live, and cashiers make more than floor associates.

I just looked up VA minimum wage online and it says it is $7.25 an hour.  $4.10 an hour for tipped employees in VA.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimum_wage_in_the_United_States  At the walmart here they wear the walmart blue shirts and black or khaki pants.
