Awful Experience
In-stock Associate (Current Employee), St. John'sSeptember 17, 2014
A typical day at work consists of being understaffed and over worked. The only learning experience I had was training on equipment (walkie stacker, power jack and wave). Co-workers are fantastic. Management is terrible. They have unrealistic expectations of staff. Hardest part of my job was being understaffed and not being able to take appropriate breaks. – more... There was nothing enjoyable about the job outside of my coworkers. – less

Not the best place to work
Sporting Goods Associate (Current Employee), Putnam, CTSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: poor scheduling
Lots of customer service, even more working freight, and dealing with a ton of different managers.
I learned a great amount of customer service.
Management is fairly poor and tiresome to deal with.
Co workers can be great but also can be very bothersome.
The job is beyond easy in every aspect.

The ceilings are low
Sales Associate. (Former Employee), Listowel OntarioSeptember 15, 2014
While the walmart environment was a great spot for a student or part time employee, i cannot in good faith reccoment this company to any person that wants a long term place of work. the company tries to entice its employees, and offer them promises of advancement and opportunity. this is not the case, the store has a ceiling, and only a select few manage – more... to breach it. associates are hired on as part timers, and given full time hours, only to be cut back every 9 weeks, to avoid giving them part time.
useless employees move up into higher positions, because they know the right people and can play the social games, and the hard workers remain trapped in their menial positions because they are hard to replace and valuable. – less

tire and lube technition (Current Employee), Fort Erie, ONSeptember 14, 2014
The Walmart in Fort Erie is the worst company to work for they don't have enough employees and they don't know how to treat their techs. their managers are unprofessional and not very easy to talk to. They don't seem to understand customer service very well worst company i ever worked for and I will never work for them again.

Pros: loved the breaks

easy going and laid back work place
Shoe Sale Associate (Former Employee), Guelph, ONSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: good lunch break times, paced to yourself, relaxed, not pressured
Cons: schedule conflicts, employee conflicts
Wal-Mart is an enjoyable place to work, it was very laid back and an non-stressful environment. I would go into work usually ten minutes early, talk to the previous staff to see what happened throughout the day and what is expected and then I would go and clean up the work place and attend to customers and if needed fill or move merchandise. Management – more... however at the time was not so good at the time within the department but the overall management of the store was good. The hardest part of the job was during the very busy times with an abundance of customers while trying to completely move or set up a display wall, however it was doable and completed. The most enjoyable part of my job was knowing that I was contributing to making the store look good, knowing that I made it approachable for customers and also helping the customers find something they wanted or needed and knowing that it will help them with their day to day lives. – less

A typical working day at Walmart
3rd Shift In-Stock Associate (Current Employee), Ottawa, ONSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: getting noticed for good work and earning respect of my immediate supervisor.
Cons: sometimes had to take load of the other associates' duties.
My work starts at 11 pm at night and ends at 7 am in the morning. There are 3 breaks each at 1 pm, 3 pm and 5 pm.I mostly work in the dry grocery department and is responsible for breaking down the skids packed with dry grocery supplies and sorting them according to sections to which they goes.I am also responsible for delivering supplies to other department – more... like infants,paper and pets whose products also get supplied to us along with dry groceries.After sorting ,each member of the team including me are assigned the job of spotting the products and checking whether it will go on the self or not.If any product doesn't go on the self,it is kept as overstock to be send back to the backroom to get binned.After all spotting is done, I am responsible for arranging all overstocks on skids to be send back.Then each member are assigned to work in specific section of the department. In the morning right before the store opens,I am responsible for making sure that the department is completely stocked and zoned and cleaned in order to provide a nice experience to the customers who comes in the store to shop.The management is good and they do care about the well being of the associates.Though I sometimes face little bumps in getting along with some individuals who doesn't show me the respect I deserve, all in all the experience of working in Walmart is good. – less

A great place the provided the opportunity to learn continuously.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee), Victoria, BCSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: busy work environment, i was never bored
Cons: long hours
Walmart pharmacy was a great place to work as it was a busy work environment and always allowed the opportunity to learn something new everyday such has better my customer service skills. The management also was great as it as organized and provided effective leadership in a work environment. The co-workers were also great and we worked as a team supporting – more... each other with work related tasks. The hardest part of the job was dispensing medication to patients within a certain time span. I enjoyed working at the pharmacy as it was a close nit community that allowed me to personally cater to the clientele and work effectively with my co-workers. – less

Fun but only as entry level
Vision Center Associate (Former Employee), Peterborough, ONSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: holidays, break time, short hours
Cons: horrible boss, stressful and under-trained, no chances to advance.
Managers were unproductive, difficult to work with and had little to no training.

Salary put you well below the poverty line if working part-time but as a supplement to income was manageable.

Coworkers were fantastic and usually easy to get along with, very little office politics.

Worst part of the job was the customers, I had so many difficult situations – more... I was not prepared for thrown at me.

I quit this job because I was so over-worked and stressed out by my manager (who frequently loaded her work onto me) that I ended up having a stress seizure.

Most enjoyable part was that break were really great, you had enough time to catch up on homework and relax a little. I had, on the flip side, a great manager who worked part time in my store and part time in another and she was my saviour most of the time. She was smart and funny, very down to earth and made a world of difference to me. I stuck out the bad parts of my job because of her. When she left, it all went down hill. – less
