Secondary Receiver (Current Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 28 June 2017
I was half trained, thrown onto the floor and told to "have at it". Most of my learning came from asking random questions of fellow associates. Yes, it was a steady job, and I never had to worry about getting laid off, but that's the only perk of the job.
Instock Associate (Current Employee) – Rockland, ON – 27 June 2017
under paid and under appreciated. no matter how hard you work you get paid the same amount as someone who doesn't carry their own weight. I had little difficulty working at Walmart and almost always finished my work on time. and if I didn't I would always stay later until the job is done.
Great place to gain some experience in customer service
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 June 2017
I enjoyed this job because I started out as a cashier and quickly advanced into a Customer Service Manager. Yeah there were some grumpy customers to deal with but hey that's the challenge you get when you deal with customers. It makes you think about the best possible outcome where both you and your customer walk away happy. It's rewarding. So, working at Walmart, you get these interactions to build experience. Plus you get the extra responsibility.
discount and benefits
Work Night then Day (mismatched scheduling), standing all day
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 27 June 2017
Depending on the department you are placed in the difficulty changes but overall it is an easy going workplace with the same duties each day you go to work, biggest concern i had was the lack of good management if that were to improve Walmart would be a great company to work for
First Shift In-Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 27 June 2017
Worked as a First Shift In-Stock associate. Not a bad job, just not stellar. Generally speaking the middle management of the store isn't bad, but upper management is a bit too close to corporate to care all that much about the individual. Nobody is mean there or anything. Just jaded from the corporate retail life.
All around, not bad. Just not recommended to stick around for a career. You absolutely could if you wished to.
In-charge of Dry grocery First In-stock Team (Current Employee) – Duncan, BC – 26 June 2017
Nice place with good people you can trust. Enjoyed me time here. If you are starting out of school or looking for employment while attending college, it is a great place to start. When there is a good Management team you couldn't ask for better. But unless you are short timing or Manager potential ensure you plan an alternate work.
A fast paced , friendly, customer service oriented workplace
Department Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 25 June 2017
There is never a time when there isn't something to do. The day usually goes by and it's time to go home. It can be very intense but management is very supportive and lots of open communication. It's a great place to learn the retail experience with ongoing and updated training.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Chilliwack, BC – 25 June 2017
I have only been working here for a few months and I hate it so much. I try to stay positive but the management sucks, They work you more than you should be, the associates are rude (only some of them). I dislike it so much that I have called in sick like 20 times just because I hate it. The training/ trainers don't really help you. I got yelled at because I did not know about the communications book.
10% off of mcdonalds and 50% off on the 15th at mcdonalds
Dept. Manager (Current Employee) – Kanata, ON – 24 June 2017
Always evolving to meet customer needs. Providing up to date training which is always beneficial. Hard workers who are dedicated to their jobs. Walmart is a great community supporter and has donated millions to various charities.
Benefits and pay as a salary manager was great. Though I lost my job through restructuring, I still enjoyed my role and the roles I had getting there. I did find the way the layoffs and secrecy behind them was unjust and disrespectful to the staff that have worked there. Many for years. The last management team I worked with was a hateful and unenjoyable crew. No one worked as a team, it was a very lonely place to work as a salaried manager. The store manager was a very nasty person, and did not like to see anyone get a head. She was spiteful and just a down right witch.
Customer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 June 2017
Although the environment of Walmart Superstore is great, the hours they have available for part-time works are terrible. With only 10 hours a week, it feels as if I will need a job that sustains more hours a week.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Midland, ON – 23 June 2017
At Walmart, you don't learn any skills that prepare you for any other jobs (excluding similar stores) but the benefits of working there are pretty good. A 10% discount off of any item and benefits may make the job seem more attractive.
Photo Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 June 2017
I really enjoy working at walmart, all the mangers are extremely respectful of the associates and willing to accommodate student availability. I have learned communication skills and gained patience from dealing with customers over 4 years.
Front End Supervisor (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 22 June 2017
When you work in a Walmart store there is so much that always needs to get done.
So very quickly it's taught that whatever it takes to get the job done, as long as it's being done safely, is good enough for Walmart.
Working in Walmart Store(s) over the course of my career has better prepared me for the work place. It gave me the opportunity to understand company culture and appreciate when it's there. It has probably over prepared me for any customer interaction I could ever have in the future.
