Cashier (Current Employee), Kingston – February 28, 2014
Cons: management, scheduling and pay.
Horrible job. Only perk of being there is you get to know your co-workers very well, you get to be a part of a family. Management in my experience is just awful, there is no communication between anyone in the offices. Scheduling is constantly being changed without any notice to employees. Rules change without posting or fore-warning. In the end, it's – more... a pay check. Nothing more. – less
Lead Associate/Meat Clerk (Former Employee), Brampton, ON – February 28, 2014
Pros: once a month we would have free coffee and donuts at our meetings
Cons: distance, and benifits
Typical day would begin around 7am. I would check the counter for proper rotation and what needed to be pulled. I would make a list of what was needed and load up a truck for my staff to fill the counter. I would check on hands to be sure inventory was on point. Check the sales and emails. I would place an order if needed in fresh, frozen and seafood. Co-Workers – more... were great. i had an amazing team. Hardest part was the really early morning shifts. Was hard for me to get to work before 7am without taking a taxi. Management was great. – less
morale boosted when we acquired out latest manager
Customer Service Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Ogdensburg, NY – February 28, 2014
I enjoyed the challenges, and the fact I was always busy. I learned things that were completely out of my comfort zone, making it challenging and exciting. The most enjoyable part was satisfying the customer's needs.
Caissière, (Former Employee), Dorval, QC – February 27, 2014
Cons: lack of employees and slow days
I have occupied three positions at Walmart Dorval. Every day consist of helping our customers and make sure they are satisfied and if they are not we try and find a solution for them. We make sure of the safety of the customer as well as the employees. We pass customers at our cashes with a smile and help them in customer service for the returns. I – more... have learned to use certain work tools that we need to complete our jobs, I have learned new tricks to lift and transports heavy items I have also learned to better myself not only as a person but as a fellow employee and co-worked. Our management was great. They answered our questions, they would help us find a situation to any problem we had. They would give you a hand when you needed it and they were not afraid to work like one of us. My co-workers, well we were like a family. We would help each other out, we learned things from each other, we would make our work shifts enjoyable and fun when we can. The hardest part of the job would have to be when we had no customer because then you need to find something to do and it's not always easy when everything that needs to be done is already finished and completed, but we always managed. The most enjoyable part of the job are the breaks, the great team effort and our employees moments. We had fun, we laughed a lot and it made our jobs fun. – less
Stockroom Manager (Current Employee), Thornhill – February 26, 2014
Walmart is a very enjoyable place to work, with many benefits. A great employer to work for with ample opportunity for growth and promotion. Said Walmart is littered with associates that are caring and very tight knit. A very family like atmosphere with a wide variety of cultures and people.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Windsor, ON – February 24, 2014
A typical day at work would be standing on your feet for 8hrs helping customer check out with all their purchases. Making small talk, asking them if they need anything. Maintaining the cleanliness of my area.
