WebOps Engineer (Current Employee) – San Bruno – August 10, 2012
Most team members I have known over the last 6 years work 80+hour weeks to deliver on projects. I have met some amazing people come and go while at my tenure here, but due to the excess in expectations and the constant driving to deliever below cost solutions they get burned out and leave.
work life balance - they talk a lot about work life balance, but it is not possible based on managements expectations.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Milton, ON – February 11, 2016
Walmart is a very fast and energetic place to work. The people are very friendly and fun to work with. It was also nice to see the same customers all the time as well. I learned to do several different jobs while I was working at Walmart.
People Greeter (Former Employee) – Summerside, PE – February 10, 2016
Workplaces have to make reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities. My local Wal-Mart refused to make the same reasonable adjustments that other Wal-Marts were able to do for other employees within the same position. Management did not provide a valid reason and did not seem sympathetic or understanding of my disability.
I loved what I did, I just could not continue working there without adjustments made.
A workplace which is customer focused and a place to learn about people
Department Manager (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – February 9, 2016
As usual I started my day at 7. As usual it started getting busy. All the jobs i was required to do before lunch was done. I went for lunch at about 12:15 and suddenly all associates were called on floor as the dairy department cooler stopped working. All the store associates got together and put back the whole dairy and meat products in back room coolers. it was really a hectic day
I learned that staying calm under stressful conditions helps to find solutions and everything s possible with team work.
Management of the store are really nice people to discuss any issue. They are really helpful. Coworkers are really helpful to get together as team. I do not think there is any hard part of the job as even the hardest is made easy with help of wise management. The part of job really which i really feel enjoyable is meeting and interacting with different kind of customers. Learning about new products all this make my job interesting and I love to do it.
get Great experience about different customer behaviours
Deli Associate (Current Employee) – keel and finch – February 9, 2016
It is usually a pretty busy place to work. There is always something to do. Interacting with Customers which is one of my favourite part of my day. Most of my co-workers are interesting and good people to work with. We try our best to work as a team and bring a positive attitude to our department. The management could be improve a little bit but overall it is good. I Don't feel i have a very hard job because i like being active and busy doing things. I like the fact that its a busy environment.
Shoe sales (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – February 9, 2016
For me a work day was picking up shoes because i worked in that department. I really didn't lean anything. My manager was really mean, unfair and sexist. My co-workers were a blast to work with and i got along well with them. The hardest part of my job would have been to put up with my boss. The most fun part would have been when my boss went home.

the staff at walmart were great, the management have no communication. too many people trying to run it different ways. I loved working in the lab and on the floor. I am a people person who is good with people. by the time I left the photo lab I was pretty much running it.
Photo Lab Technician and Floor Associate (Current Employee) – Pickering, ON – February 8, 2016
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.
Inventory Controller (Former Employee) – North Vancouver, BC – February 8, 2016
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.
Customer Service (Current Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – February 8, 2016

very polite and friendly enviroment with fellow employees
constantly changing in the number of hours per week
Cashier (Former Employee) – Gander, NL – February 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
