KEEP IN MIND:
- You MUST bring a measuring tape 25 feet or longer to Walmart with you to complete this job.
- You MUST measure in inches the entire job.
- Print and bring a copy of the LOA, you can find this here.
- If you experience any obstacles (boxes, carts, etc.) ask an associate for help! You have your LOA to show them why you are there.
- Make sure your phone is fully charged and connected to Wi-Fi.
- This job is longer than normal, allow it time to upload fully and make sure you have enough storage on your phone.
REMEMBER: The objective of this job is to obtain height & length measurements of all customer facing panels on service desks and self checkout areas where signage could potentially be placed.
- When you think about the signage, assume it is stiff and cannot bend.
- Think that multiple different signs could potentially hang on a single desk, so we need the measurements of all panels or sections where signage could hang.
You will be measuring various counter surfaces at Walmart in several different departments. Counters will be broken down and measured by panels. Here’s an example of a counter:
When measuring a counter, always start at the left side of the desk and work your way to the right.
Do NOT measure over a sign or banner.
NEVER measure a panel with a glass display case.
Some counters may have Cart Bumpers which are horizontal bars that prevent carts from bumping into the counters.
Other counters may have TWO cart bumpers. For these counters, DO NOT measure the area BELOW the lower cart bumper.
Now let's talk about how to measure the counters. We need the height and length of each panel on the counter (with the exception of the places listed above).
Starting in the upper left corner, measure the height and length of each panel. See the above illustration to understand the workflow.
Some desks may have a lowered countertop section for ADA compliance. The images below show an ADA counter. See the image on the right to understand how to measure this section.
