What are the hours and when should I call?

WalMart operates the call center for this 800-925-6278 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 5,126 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this WalMart phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like WalMart staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call WalMart is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Friday, which averages 91% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 5,126 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Friday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Tuesday, which is 889% longer than the minimum. As you can see, there is more fluctuation in hold time over the course of the week than there is in call volume.

The best time to call WalMart

In summation, the best day to call WalMart is Friday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that WalMart staffs up on Friday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

Calling this WalMart Customer Number

Christian Allen is the editor / author responsible for this content.

Calling Walmart's customer service has some usage, but its ability to find a Walmart near you is pretty limited unless you know the ZIP Code you want to search for a store.

When I called, I asked the system for the store locator, intending to ask for a Walmart location that had a deli where I'm currently located. The system told me that I could look up Walmart or Sam's Club locations and further divide them by requesting locations near a certain ZIP Code or by the location I was calling from.

I decided to ask for Walmart locations by the location of my phone, and the system took a second before telling me that my closest Walmart location was in Greenfield, Indiana. I normally live on Indianapolis' west side, not its east side, meaning that the system was telling me my nearest Walmart was located 40 minutes away from my normal home.

I actually live just five minutes from a Walmart, so this shocked me. I asked it for the next closest location three more times and got two more locations in Indianapolis and one in Fishers, none close to where I live nor where I happened to be calling from.

After that frustration, I asked to find a Walmart by zip code, and the system gave me a Honolulu Walmart that I had visited before. I asked it for its hours, but the system told me it could not reveal the hours because they would vary by store. My best bet would be to call the store itself and request its hours from that number.

I then returned to the main menu to get information about a deli near me, but a deli was not a search option presented. My only options were Walmart, Sam's Club, Neighborhood Market and a Walmart pharmacy. With that information, I ended the call, unable to get any more information.

Overall, I was not impressed with this number. Knowing your ZIP Code when traveling is helpful, but you'll be totally lost if you don't. The system seems to tie where you're calling from to your phone number, regardless of where you happen to be. That's a serious problem with people moving as much as they are; it makes this feature useless for many people who moved away from home.

Given the wildly inaccurate location feature, I would only use this feature if you genuinely knew where you were when asking for a store. The system cannot use your phone's location services if you're traveling and looking for a Walmart.

Christian has been writing about long hold times and customer service call center experiences since 2010. He's been featured in Bloomberg, the Wall Street Journal and the Boston Globe.

As a last, sometimes only, resort- WalMart customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
