Dinning room
Cashier (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 24, 2015
Every working day I learned new things from different sources. It could be from colleagues, customers or management. The most enjoyable part is always the lunch time with all my colleagues sharing our food, talking about everything. The hardest part (dealing with angry customers) is not really is, I rather considered it as a learning session.

Poor management and overall environment
Seasonal Cashier (Former Employee), Greater Napanee, ONFebruary 24, 2015
Cons: dirty work environment, angry coworkers, not a good place to work
A typical day working at Walmart was not as great as I expected. Everyone was always in a bad mood, customers included. I did not learn much from that position. Management was never around, or if they were they were not happy being there. My co-workers were very to themselves and never socialized with fellow workers, even in the break room. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the cranky people throughout every shift, mainly the employees instead of the customers.

Good benefits, lazy management
Cashier (Former Employee), Lethbridge, ABFebruary 23, 2015
Pros: 10% discount
Cons: standing all day, thin mats to stand on, poor management
The work benefits were good, the management would often go out of their departments to get others to do the work their people were supposed to do, who were getting paid to sit in the back room, while others do their work. There was little or no room for advancement, and the managers won't do anything to help when short on manpower, just stand and watch.

people hate working at walmart
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee), Halifax, NSFebruary 20, 2015
Pros: ensured hours, flexible
Cons: atmosphere
Working at Walmart is a job, and just that! I personally found that the environment is very non professional and dramatic. The job had guaranteed a min. of 12 hours a week and max of 28 (for Part-time) however if you were a reliable employee they would try to get you come come in all the time when you are not schedule. The hours are great for people going to school, I just personal can not handle the amount of drama that goes on at the work place. I have worked at numerous Walmart location and it seem that this is a common theme at Walmart.

Electronics Associate (Current Employee), Mississauga, ONFebruary 19, 2015
Walmart is a good company to work for if you plan working full time and for a long period of time. I learned a lot about retail and how to communicate with aggressive customers. Management overall is great and easy to communicate with. The hardest part of the job is ensuring that all prices have been changed and labeled at the correct times. The most enjoyable part of the job is communicating with customers on the daily. It's fun and effective when you are interacting with others.

Friendly workplace
Cashier (Seasonal) (Former Employee), Midland, ONFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: friendly, free food on occasion
Cons: boring
I would come in and be greeted by most if not all of the staff i saw, i punch in and head up to the till where the CSM's would help me with any questions i had.

I learned how to be friendly to even the meanest of people.

The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting the people who came through and having conversations, learning about them and seeing the same customers return.

The hardest part of the job was doing nothing with all of the time you had when the store was slow and you finished all of your cleaning.

I enjoyed working with my co workers
2nd In Stock (Former Employee), Westbank, BCFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: my co workers
Cons: wage. walmart can afford to pay better and hire full time with benifits
It was a very hard job for someone my age and over weight after spending 12 years long hauling. Instead of driving the truck I was now unloading 53 foot trailers by hand one box at a time. They say max 50 lbs but some weighed up to 150lbs. after that was done and everything was stacked on pallets ( usually 12 feet high) according to department we used hand pallet jacks to pull them out to each dept. for the night shift to stock shelves. I learned never to give up and if I just kept going I would not only get through my shift but lost 65lbs. What I enjoyed most was my co-workers, most 25 years younger than me, they never treated me like they thought I couldn't do the job. And as far as I know, I still hold the record at Westbank WalMart for unloading a trailer the fastest.

Hated It, Will never work for the company again.
Electronic Sale Associate (Former Employee), Airdrie, ABFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: hour long lunches and two 15 minute breaks.
Cons: almost full-time(peak time) even though i had school.
Management did not accommodate my school into my work hours, co-workers were fine. The most enjoyable part was helping someone get something that can enjoy.The hardest part about the job was finding the energy to do what needed to be done.
