Department Manager (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 25 March 2017
my job current is to make sure that the items are available to all customers and staff, also that its safe for all to shop I have to make sure that all items are priced. I work in the toy department, what is the most fun is to watch the little kids that come in with the expressions on their little faces.

Its hard to get full time status but they will give you lots of hours. Great employee perks. Training was long but beneifical to do the job. They do a lot to help employees and give back with lunches, discount, etc. I would work there again however, my back cant handle it.

Cashier and Costumer Service Specialist (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 23 March 2017
I feel as if Walmart is a very good company to work for with lots of benefits and abilities to move up in the company. I would recommend the job to anyone. For a student salary is amazing compared to other companies. All management at Walmart is awesome, I only had a tough time with one manager but we were quickly able to resolve those issues with me being able to move departments as I was unhappy where I was working. There isn't much that is hard about this job but the most enjoyable part is that Ive been at Walmart for almost 5 years now and it feels as if it is my other family. As much as i love Walmart i do have plans and goals for a career for my life and will have to eventually be leaving the company.

Walmart is the ideal starting job for a young male/female looking for their first job. The environment is very welcoming and management ensures you are comfortable with every job at task before letting you tackle it on your own.
Customer Service Specialist and Cashier (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 22 March 2017
A typical day at work would include me being a cashier for approximately 4-7.5 hours. I would assist in customer service whenever it was needed. While being a cashier I was responsible for scanning and bagging customer purchases, processing various forms of payment for goods and services and participating in promotional activities. While being at customer service I would answer the phone, return items and accommodate customers concerns and needs with superior customer service. The management at Walmart changed quite frequently. The hardest part of the job was standing for long periods of time and not moving around. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with friends that I made.
walmart was a great please to work fast pace and friendly

Walmart: good place to shop, not so much for working there
Store Standards Associate (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 21 March 2017
The first thing I would honestly say about Walmart is the wage is ridiculous. You learn quite a bit about how Walmart handles money when you work there. It's almost like they don't want any employees. Cut hours so they can cut costs on paying employees so they can lower prices so people can save money and live better. Very greedy. This store I work at, there is a practice of favoritism, everyone has their own little groupies who can't seem to include other people in. No one likes to sit by you and talk. The scheduling can be stupid too. It's great to have a job and I don't like complaining about being given money but for a billion dollar company that makes billions every second in the day, you'd expect more. The raises are very skimpy, like being given pocket change.
Cashier (Current Employee) – St. Johns, AG – 20 March 2017
A typical day at work is checking in customers and helping them get through line ups quickly and helping them if they have ant issues. Management is very nice and friendly and very approachable from my experience at the two stores I worked at. The hardest part of the job would probably be dealing with upset customers and trying to figure out how to satisfy them better/faster and the most enjoyable part is interacting with customers and making them happy and the employees also make it a lot better.
