Pros: make your own schedule

Walmart suffers from a severe lack of communication, and does not realize what it is to be Loss Prevention, and management will always try yo act as Loss Prevention.

great people, issues with management
Bakery sales associate (Former Employee), Guelph, ONFebruary 3, 2016
Pros: great people
Cons: long hours, no communication
Walmart was a very interesting place to work with great people. however their is a huge communication barrier between management and the associates. I have requested time off countless times only for it to be completely ignored along with my availability. They also had a big issue with people calling in sick and countless employees have been written up because they were sick.

Very Productive Workplace
Cashier/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Brampton, ONFebruary 3, 2016
Pros: Dress down days/ Free lunches
Cons: Long, busy hours
A typical day working at Walmart consists of a constant flow of customers and clean up. It is a naturally busy environment but the co-workers that are on your team are always there working side by side with you. The management team is split up into their own departments which makes it easier to understand who to go to when you need something done, or have something specific to talk about. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the work load on busy days if we are low on associates, but is easy to catch up once the crowd slows. The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to interact with all types of people; associates, managers and customers. I have learned a lot working in retail, I have been able to learn how to work in a quick paced environment, how to handle money and cash registers, and how to properly stock product in a proper manner.

Walmart is not a bad place to work
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Nanaimo, BCFebruary 2, 2016
Pros: employee discount
Cons: lots of heavy lifting
Walmart is not a bad place to work. Its great work experience to prepare you for a very fast paced work environment and for a demanding employer. The coworkers are amazing, sometimes they are like family. The hardest part of the job, is that it is very physically demanding. Lots of heavy lifting. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you are able to help someone to save money and watch them leave happy.

Very exciting and full of customer interaction
Customer Service/Cashier (Current Employee), Swift Current, SKFebruary 2, 2016
Pros: Customer service
Cons: Variable shift timings.
Working at Walmart keeps me alive, alive in the sense that I get an opportunity to meet new people, develop public relations and get know different psychologies. I am a very social person so I thrive for being into the crowd, interact with the management and co-workers. The most enjoyable part of my job is again the customer interaction specially the kids and the hardest part is when have to Lift very heavy boxes for scanning them.

Pros: We recieved a 10% discount on lunches

Constant change in hours. Reduction of hours
Being moved from dept. to dept.
Pressured to do more in less time
Poor communication from management and supervisors
Lack of people skills and team players in some of the co-workers
The hardest part of successfully doing my job was the lack of having the need to fix something and lack of interest and/or appreciation towards the employees by management
The most enjoyable part of my job was interacting with the customers and helping them out in any way I could.
