Cashier (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – July 8, 2014
Lots of costumers I learned how to operate a cash register. I also learned more about retail and the policies that Walmart upholds daily. My co-workers were friendly and kind from across the planet, so there was diversity. It was fun to work with them.
The hardest parts of the job was rush hour, the most enjoyable part was meeting new people day in – more... and out. – less
walmart is a great place, but you sacrifice for the job
IMS associate (Former Employee), Brownsville, TX – July 7, 2014
Pros: alot of hours, pays well, secured.
Cons: you work past scheduled time, you have horrible conditions somtimes
walmart always has the team short handed always orders to much product that doesnt even sell or doesnt even fit in the back room. some people dont help others out . always some management that expected everything to be done even though they had a truck arive 2 hours before your shifts end and only 3 men is sitting in the back with the job of puting – more... away the new product with no space literaly left. the job did pay well. you always had hours. no real reason for you to lose the job . does take alot out of you . you do somtimes stay past you schedualed time almost every day . also every walmart isnt the same and could be runned differently. this walmart could do better though. – less
Walmart started out as a very good company to work with but as the years goes by our jobs are no longer secure.
Full Time Department Manager of Infants Wear (Current Employee), Regina, SK – July 7, 2014
Pros: we get lots of free food like bar-b-ques and taco in a bag.
Cons: don't get paid enough for what i do.
The day at work will be very hectic as we always have a lack of staff. A lack of staff means that the department managers have to pick up the slack plus have your own work done, plus any extras that are given to you.
I've learned to use there computer systems, how to run a retail business, how to deal with customers and much, much more.
We have had – more... many changes in Walmart recently. Some managers got let go, other accociates got promoted to assistant positions and other people were hired out of Walmart. We currently have a lot of assistants that don't know how to do there jobs and it doesn't help when the store manager isn't there half the time. The morale right now is not good at all and it makes it hard to do your job.
I love my co-workers and I will miss them but it is time for a change, time to move on to something else and learn new things.
My job is not hard at all, I don't have an issue with what I do.
The most enjoyable part of my job is making my co-workers and customers happy. When they are happy I'm happy. – less

Stockroom Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – July 3, 2014
Pros: opportunity for growth
Cons: barely above minimum wage pay
I spent 7 years at Wal-Mart, starting as a Cashier and climbing to Department Manager. I learned a great many things during my time there; I even had to opportunity to attend their Management Training School. It is a fast paced environment with a lively associate culture. However, I felt that after 7 years my hard work was no longer appreciated when – more... I was shuffled to the night shift after having cut the “shrink” due to theft in their Jewelry department by half in my one year of its management, with no thank-you. This employer is wonderful if you are a student looking for part-time work or are looking to join upper Management, but is not ideal as a long term associate level career. – less
Material Handler (Former Employee), Spruce Grove, AB – July 3, 2014
During the day i would unload trucks one box at a time place them on skids then if there was a second truck unload that one and then after we wrap the skids and pull them to the floor to there specific places. The managers were not very helpful and the co-workers were rude.
