over work their employees. racist very very rude. cross contamination constantly. 110 watt common Walmart should be closed down. more complaints then compliments. pick and choose who they like to treat good or bad and they usually treat the white people very badly.
Fresh Produce associate (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 16 August 2017
It's a popular wholesale in north america, hence the increasing popularity in the chain and so the number of clients is increasing. Thanks to that, the number of employees is big as well and so we meet different type of people in our surroundings.
Associate (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 15 August 2017
Usually understaffed so you would work alone most days. Had to do multiple shifts on cash while having other work to do.The managers never scheduled enough people but the same amount of work was expected.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 15 August 2017
Unqualified management who date each other. Unpaid overtime. Dangerous workplace. Disregard for safety. Lack of any kind of workplace culture. Felt like a prison. No opportunity of advancement unless you're dating a manager. Impossible deadlines.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Newfoundland and Labrador – 15 August 2017
Walmart is great for a high school student, or someone's first job. Depending on the department flexibility in schedule may depend. My manager strives to meet employees needs. Overall good place to work.
Customer Service Experience Associate (Current Employee) – British Columbia – 15 August 2017
My review does not represent Walmart Canada, it's subsidiaries, partners, associates, or parent company. The following is a short example of personal feelings after a significant time in a single retail location.
A typical day at work: atypical. Work days at Walmart have lost predictability as you rarely know where you will be or what your job expectations are prior to the start of your shift, unless you are specifically assigned to a single job title, such as a cashier. This unpredictability can provide daily, even hourly, challenges to overcome. While it is no longer feasible to specialize and provide exceptional customer service in any single area, there are plenty of opportunities to assist customers in a satisfactory manner.
What I have learned: I have gained excellent and valuable skills during my time as an associate.
Management: There is a wide variety of managing styles within Walmart. Communication can use improvement. Skills identifying under-performers and delegating tasks effectively can use significant improvement.
Workplace Culture: During this transition, it may not be appropriate to comment on the state of workplace morale.
Hardest part of the job: Adjusting to various new and unexpected job responsibilities that do not fit with the skills I have gained during my years with the company or personal experience. I pride myself on excellent customer service - but am consistently forced into situations where my service can only be described as mediocre at best regardless of my efforts. No resources are available to bridge product information knowledgemore... gaps when no associates who were once assigned to these areas are available.
Most enjoyable part of the job: On the rare occasions that I am within my element during my shifts, I receive constant praise from my customers for being able to identify their needs and help them quickly and effectively. When I have these opportunities to remind my customer what real customer service truly is, that is my reward.less
