Photo Lab Technician and Floor Associate (Current Employee), Pickering, ONFebruary 8, 2016
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: Forgetful Managers
Very energetic staff and managers. Its great to invest into a company and many people did. There is one downside to working with so many friendly faces, sometimes bringing issues up go unresolved because of friendships.

very demanding on staff
Inventory Controller (Former Employee), North Vancouver, BCFebruary 8, 2016
Pros: allot of hours
Cons: not respectful of employees
Wall Mart is a very demanding environment and often may not treat their employees with proper respect.
Typical day would be following daily routine, what I have learned is that expectations are not rational management is not always properly trained and not always professional the co workers are nice and respect you and the hardest part of the job is dealing with unrealistic expectations the most enjoyable part of job is having co worker support or internal customer support and then going home.

Very Friendly Co-Workers and Managers
Cashier (Former Employee), Gander, NLFebruary 8, 2016
A typical day working as a cashier at Walmart, was pretty good, you could work anywhere from a four hour shift to a eight hour shift. What i learned the most about at the wlamart located in Gander, was to treat the customer with the upmost respect and how to properly deal with a conflicting situation with a customer. The management was great, they would always help you out if you needed it, whether it be training or with a personal matter. If you needed any time off they would often go out of their way to get those hours covered for you. I got along with my coworkers fine, they were very nice and friendly, as a cashier should be. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with an upset customer, sometimes the customer can get very upset and say some awful things, but as a cashier you must know how to deal with situation like these properly. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that when you got to work, were would be an amazing group of coworkers there to work with

Nght dairy/freezer stocker (Former Employee), Penticton, BCFebruary 7, 2016
Pros: PAY ON TIME
Cons: DON'T REALLY PAY A FAIR WAGE.
Everyone expects you to do their job. They do pay on time. I actually had a mistake on my roe and wrote head office which did correct it and apologized. This was incompetence at local office. Keep your pay stubs.

Loss Prevention Investigator (Current Employee), Ancaster, ONFebruary 3, 2016
Pros: make your own schedule
Cons: Not appreciated
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.
