I work in the electronic Department but trying to expand to other departments. Because I'm a single dad caring for 2 children, my hours are kind of limited to day time only. Its hard to get many shifts at Walmart with only limited availability. The co-workers are usually great and easy to get along with. I was recently on the Renovation team for 4 months and learned many thing throughout the store. This part of the job was the most enjoyable as I like setting things up or changing equipment.

Limted in the number of hours one can work if Part Time
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Courtenay, BC – 19 October 2017
I love the people and the company it offers discount ,share options, and pay out on holiday pay as well as a raise after yearly review. I have learned all the codes for the produce items and the most enjoyable part of my job is working with the staff I work with. The culture is very eclectic ethnicity. The one thing for me that I find does't suit me are the hours from 7am to 11pm.

CASHIER (Former Employee) – Airdrie, AB – 18 October 2017
Walmart was my very first job and it definitely helped a lot with learning how to interact with customers! I was a cashier and felt it was a very quick to learn, good job. The day would go buy pretty fast, management and training were good. Flexible hours, set breaks, good pay. Overall a very good learning experience and first job.
Stocking Associate (Former Employee) – Terrace, BC – 18 October 2017
Career advancements is a bit of an exaggeration. Management acts like children. Being a hard working part time associate I hoped to get that career advancement but when a new worker came to work with me he didn't like it and was able to transfer immediately, I applied for 8 different positions including 2 department manager positions and was denied all. When my department manager left for 2 weeks, I was left to basically run 2 departments by myself plus abit of meats.
competative wage, honest breaks, respectful co workers
Sales Associate / Unloader (Former Employee) – New Westminster, BC – 18 October 2017
Management does not respect its associates and consistently schedueles on non available days expecting you to come in or get written up. Only care about the money being made and think its associates are robots
Wal Mart forme ses employés constamment et permet qu'ils soient toujours à jour dans les informations concernant le milieu de travail. Dans une journée typique, on clock in, se dirige ensuite vers nos postes, puis on fait la tache assignée, les pauses sont données à un temps raisonnables et sinon, elles sont payés. Beaucoup de rabais à l'intérieur de l'entreprise et dans d'autres établissements également.
Renvoie annuel d'une quantité d'employés pour aucune raison apparente
Decent pay, decent coworkers but TERRIBLE management
Cashier (Former Employee) – Waterdown, ON – 17 October 2017
Didn't mind working there, loved working there with some people but ultimately the terrible management Walmart continues to employ drove me away and the same result with many others. Their attitude in the workplace is ridiculous, often would just tell you orders to hear their voice or because half of them are tyrants. Most enjoyable part? The people you work with and the customers are quite interesting. The worst part? Easily the management. How some of them even get into a management position is beyond me. Would I recommend? Sure if you like to get bossed around by people who don't have a clue what they are talking about.
If you know what you are doing, the work becomes very easy
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 17 October 2017
A typical day at work would be zoning, doing returns and helping customers. Listen to what the managers have to say and apply them to your work. Getting to know your co-workers tends to be nice, gets you along with them, and so you can rely on them if you end up needing a bit help.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) – Drumheller, AB – 17 October 2017
Working at Wal-Mart was a great way to meet new people, very easy going team members and an enjoyable way to learn new skills. the managers were very understanding and had a very hard work ethic, keeping a balanced work place environment and very organized.
Hard working associates and the discount is a bonus.
