CASHIER (Current Employee), Abbotsford, BCSeptember 13, 2014
Pros: loved the breaks
Cons: shifts were way to long and some way to early.
The hardest part of the job is when it gets to busy and not enough of cashiers. The funnest part of the job was when i got to work with another employee.

easy going and laid back work place
Shoe Sale Associate (Former Employee), Guelph, ONSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: good lunch break times, paced to yourself, relaxed, not pressured
Cons: schedule conflicts, employee conflicts
Wal-Mart is an enjoyable place to work, it was very laid back and an non-stressful environment. I would go into work usually ten minutes early, talk to the previous staff to see what happened throughout the day and what is expected and then I would go and clean up the work place and attend to customers and if needed fill or move merchandise. Management – more... however at the time was not so good at the time within the department but the overall management of the store was good. The hardest part of the job was during the very busy times with an abundance of customers while trying to completely move or set up a display wall, however it was doable and completed. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that I was contributing to making the store look good, knowing that I made it approachable for customers and also helping the customers find something they wanted or needed and knowing that it will help them with their day to day lives. – less

A typical working day at Walmart
3rd Shift In-Stock Associate (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: getting noticed for good work and earning respect of my immediate supervisor.
Cons: sometimes had to take load of the other associates' duties.
My work starts at 11 pm at night and ends at 7 am in the morning. There are 3 breaks each at 1 pm, 3 pm and 5 pm.I mostly work in the dry grocery department and is responsible for breaking down the skids packed with dry grocery supplies and sorting them according to sections to which they goes.I am also responsible for delivering supplies to other department – more... like infants,paper and pets whose products also get supplied to us along with dry groceries.After sorting ,each member of the team including me are assigned the job of spotting the products and checking whether it will go on the self or not.If any product doesn't go on the self,it is kept as overstock to be send back to the backroom to get binned.After all spotting is done, I am responsible for arranging all overstocks on skids to be send back.Then each member are assigned to work in specific section of the department. In the morning right before the store opens,I am responsible for making sure that the department is completely stocked and zoned and cleaned in order to provide a nice experience to the customers who comes in the store to shop.The management is good and they do care about the well being of the associates.Though I sometimes face little bumps in getting along with some individuals who doesn't show me the respect I deserve, all in all the experience of working in Walmart is good. – less

A great place the provided the opportunity to learn continuously.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Victoria, BCSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: busy work environment, i was never bored
Cons: long hours
Walmart pharmacy was a great place to work as it was a busy work environment and always allowed the opportunity to learn something new everyday such has better my customer service skills. The management also was great as it as organized and provided effective leadership in a work environment. The co-workers were also great and we worked as a team supporting – more... each other with work related tasks. The hardest part of the job was dispensing medication to patients within a certain time span. I enjoyed working at the pharmacy as it was a close nit community that allowed me to personally cater to the clientele and work effectively with my co-workers. – less

Fun but only as entry level
Vision Center Associate (Former Employee), Peterborough, ONSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: holidays, break time, short hours
Cons: horrible boss, stressful and under-trained, no chances to advance.
Managers were unproductive, difficult to work with and had little to no training.

Salary put you well below the poverty line if working part-time but as a supplement to income was manageable.

Coworkers were fantastic and usually easy to get along with, very little office politics.

Worst part of the job was the customers, I had so many difficult situations – more... I was not prepared for thrown at me.

I quit this job because I was so over-worked and stressed out by my manager (who frequently loaded her work onto me) that I ended up having a stress seizure.

Most enjoyable part was that break were really great, you had enough time to catch up on homework and relax a little. I had, on the flip side, a great manager who worked part time in my store and part time in another and she was my saviour most of the time. She was smart and funny, very down to earth and made a world of difference to me. I stuck out the bad parts of my job because of her. When she left, it all went down hill. – less

not the best employer there is. poor communication between management and floor associates
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee), Edmonton, ABSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: easy to get on with
Cons: lack of communication
I wouldn't recommend working for Wal-Mart because the policies change daily, what you do today will be wrong tomorrow. there is no written notice of these changes just word of mouth and only half of the message gets to the people working the front lines. cashiers never know what's going on in the store as they never attend the daily meetings and are – more... expected to know what's really going on in the store. so not my first choice of employer – less

...Work with great people
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee), Orleans, ONSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: 15 mins breaks paid for
Cons: to many responsibilities, not enough compensation
A typical day as a Wal-Mart cash supervisor starts off by viewing the schedule and counting the float for the front cashes, so that cashiers can receive breaks on time as well as the correct amount of change. As the day goes by I might have to go on cash to help reduce line-ups, or help on Customer Service returning defective/unwanted merchandise and – more... send Western Union transfers. I am not only responsible for the cashiers but also the maintenance team (making sure the front end is clean, as well as the wash rooms) and the cart crew(making sure the cart carrels are full). At the end of the day have to make sure all 24+ cashes are counted and left with a float.

The hardest part of the job is handling the high amount of customers. Not always given what is needed to get through the work day. (cashiers, support)
The employees are very kind, we grow to help each other. Very friendly work environment.
Management does not always respond to the employee needs.
I've learned CPR/First Aid, how to be patient with upset customers. – less
