o Customer Service and cashier (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 November 2013
Walmart taught me to work in fast past environment when it always had become super busy. They taught me to have more patience then I normally would as well. They also taught me that when its slow, and not as busy as it should be, that you will always find something to do.

I am thankful for what I learned at Walmart. Things like skills with difficult customers, organizational skills, and what its like to work under management. Aside from those lessons it was a job. It was tiring, payed less than the usual work deserved, and required patience to deal with irritating customers.
Can be fun but bad hours and no benefits if you're not full time
Customer Service Manager (Current Employee) – Port Alberni, BC – 27 May 2017
Learned a lot here. Learned how to manage a floor and handle conflicts. Most enjoyable was probably knowing we killed it as a team even though it got insanely busy at times. Hardest part was not enough staff to cope with so many customers.
half of your hour lunch was paid on Sundays. Small raise every year.
Not enough hours. No benefits unless you're full time.

It was a good starting point for me. I learned a lot on the job and how to interact with customers in a busy environment. I don't have too much of an opinion on the management. It was a part time position while I was in school.
Unfortunately I had to leave because I could not balance my school work in my final year with the hours they kept giving me, and my requests for less hours were ignored.

while working there felt unwelcome and was not taught how to do things properly. i did not shadow another cashier, i was just put on a registar and then got awful looks when I would call the CSM over to help me.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 25 May 2017
As a cashier at Walmart i have gained, a lot of knowledge of how to use a cash register, and how to count and handle money. It also gave me knowledge on how to interact with customers, so we can assist them better, overall it was good work experience.

Walmart was a great company to work for, as in many workplaces there is a lot of drama but if you ignore it and do your job you will be fine. Ask lots of questions if you are unsure, and make sure that you put yourself and health first.
new hires were making as much per hour or more than the axxociates there for years

I would definitely recommend working at Wal-mart at least once in someone's life. As it does teach good work ethic and skills that will stick with you.
The major downside to the job would be a lot of the management does not treat employees fairly and a lot of favoritism takes place. People will zero work ethic will get praise for doing little work and you can work very hard to no recognition.
