Almost everyone is good, but certain key managars and administrative staff consistently overstep their boundaries
Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 22 May 2017
Almost everyone was amazing, including the CSMs. There was, however, one CSM (the head) that was outrageously rude and insulting with everyone. Later on this rubbed onto an associate that was hired for CSM.
For me, there was no typical day. I was supposed to be a cashier, but they basically pushed everything else on to me too.
Some investment benefits, people are generally nice
You really have to search for the benefits, and the management are a pain to deal with
while working at Walmart i learned how to socialize with all sorts of people and learn about one another. i also learned how to balance a cash. the hardest part about working at Walmart was not being able to give the costumer what he /she waned. the most enjoyable part of the job was helping and communicating with the costumers and my fellow employees as well.
If you have the opportunity... run the other way fast.
Driver/Delivery (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 20 May 2017
As a driver, one would be expected to be paid overtime at the "driver rate." You are paid as if you are working inside the store and then a "driver's premium" is tacked on. Then if you run into overtime on the road as is frequently the case your overtime rate is not calculated on the driver rate but as if you are working inside. Ripoff!
For the first two or three hours of my shift I was expected to work inside helping gather and sort totes full of grocery orders. Huh? If I wanted to work inside a building, I would not have applied to be a grocery driver!
Too much responsibility and too much work for the amount that is paid.
The drivers that I worked with.
Long hours and unreasonable expectations for what you are paid.
Cashier/ Cosmetics and jewelry sales associate (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 19 May 2017
Walmart was an awesome place to work , easy to understand tasks and till operation. Responsibility given to all employees and weekly non mandatory meetings for anyone who would like to give insight on how they think the company could improve and/or how the individual store could advance and be the best. Great team environment with managers that focus on interpersonal relationships with employees.
Covering 4 departments when too many people call in
Electronics assosiate; Frozen/fresh stocker (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 May 2017
This was my first job and I wasn't to sure what to expect. But i found everyday exciting and a new experience. At walmart the employees like to think of themselves as a family, and it was portrayed in the work.
CUSTOMER SERVICE ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 18 May 2017
If you are looking for a workplace that will emotional and physically exhaust you, then Walmart is the place for you.
Do you enjoy being repetitively disrespected and treated unfairly from management then Walmart is the place for you.
If you think management should abuse their power and continuously threaten you to preform work outside of your job description and install unjust and ridiculous rules, then Walmart is the place for you.
Not only will management treat you like garbage but so will the customers, and management will never support you
CUSTOMER SERVICE SPECIALIST/CASHIER (Current Employee) – Napanee, ON – 18 May 2017
Walmart has mainly friendly and supportive people working for their company with strong rules and ways of the job. Management is nice, although they don't always go through with what they say. Average hours per week are workable, but poor shift lengths.
Backroom Team Member (Current Employee) – Vaughan, ON – 18 May 2017
My shift was strictly from 3-11:30 with no rotation of weekends or day shifts. I would get to work at 3 and stat unloading a truck, after the truck was unloaded you were to stock all the items from the truck in a given time. Management was terrible as they never work with their employees strength and weaknesses. Hard work is rarely appreciated.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 18 May 2017
Day starts by punching in and getting to register beforehand and starting right away without setting up properly. Customer service managers are not efficient enough to be able to handle staff. Management not helpful, and are not easily accessible.
Department Manager (Current Employee) – Kanata, ON – 17 May 2017
Walmart is a good company to work for. The staff is super friendly and definitely makes it a good place to work. I worked in the Cosmetics Department and then stepped up to Housewares and Furniture. A typical day in the life for me is working my perpetual inventory screen, price changes, merchandizing, providing a clean and well stocked department(s)/ and store, responding to customer requests, maintaining a safe and clean work area.
The hardest part of the job is probably being understaffed. It makes it difficult to complete all that is required of me. However, I always strive for the best and try to complete everything in my day.
