Department Manager (Current Employee), Burlington, ONJuly 22, 2015
Pros: Friendly people
Cons: Constantly changing upper management
Being in the produce department of Walmart, everyday is very fast paced.
Having to get all the paperwork finished by certain times, along with inventory management, restocking of the sales floor, organization of the back prep room/coolers and managing associates can make the day go by very fast.
Ever since becoming part of management, I feel I have learned a lot more leadership skills and time balancing.
The higher management is hard to evaluate due to the fact that it's constantly changing.
My co-workers are extremely reliable. They are very knowledgeable and also very fun to be around. They are more like family than co-workers.
The hardest part of the job would have to be the unknown variables that occur when dealing with fresh food. Such as rotten products, late deliveries, missing products and others. Having to work around those issues to keep the floor maintained and customers happy can be difficult.
The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be coming in to working with my co-workers and satisfy customers.

Typical monotonous job,I have made good friends at work.
Cashier (Former Employee), Pickering, ONJuly 22, 2015
Pros: I have made good friends
Cons: Lowest paid salary and no good benefits
The job is very simple but there is no fun at work as it is a typical monotonous job with minimal wage.I want to change my job and I'm looking for a permanent full time job as my salary is not good and there are no good benefits .I have been working as a Cashier for the past three years and at Walmart I will be a Cashier for the rest of my life as there is no growth opportunity at Walmart.

Good job for part time student
Electronics Associate (Current Employee), Montréal, QCJuly 20, 2015
Pros: Great Schedule
Cons: Job Advancement
Its great for students who are looking to do 12 to 20 hours a week. The management respect every individual at walmart and your co-workers are respectable people. But if you want to make a career at walmart I would not recommend it since promotions or a job advancement take years as a full timer.

A great way to start my career with a Large Retailer.
Connections Centre Lead Associate (Former Employee), Oakville, ONJuly 20, 2015
Pros: Job Security, Benefits
Cons: Long Hours, not a great work/life balance.
My Wal-Mart experience was my first job, and the first time that I got to use my social skills and ability to create promoters on the workplace. I worked in the electronics department and then followed by the connection centre that piloted in a few stores across Canada in 2007. This was my first experience in the Telecommunications industry and taught me how to retain a customer for 3 years with a major provider in Canada. It was a great experience working in a new department that was new to a retailer such as Wal-Mart, it was also a great way for me to really get to know my customer and see how they use their phone. Different from now, the phones that were sold in the connection centre were not smartphones, so I had to make the customer understand the value of having a phone and keep them connected.

Avoid at all costs
Cashier (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONJuly 17, 2015
Every single person you come into contact with treats you like you're nothing. I was told that in order to finish training I would have to get one mastercard application and when I did and went to the back they had no idea what I was talking about and prodded me for my real training sheets. You are thrown to the wolves from day one.

Sales Associate (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCJuly 16, 2015
I honestly think there was alot of poor managerial skills, and because of this, they lose so many good, loyal, reliable associates. If you're not vigilant on where you see your future, its very easy to get caught up in the secure feeling of having an "Ok" job with this company

Enlightening job with many options, good salary and benefits
Cashier (Current Employee), Oshawa, ONJuly 15, 2015
Pros: satisfying a customers needs and wants
Cons: Management wouldn't take a serious issue properly
A typical day at Walmart is regularly a 7-11pm shift a few times a week. Unfortunately, I enjoy longer days and more hours as I need to pay for school. I learned a lot of basic communication skills, money handling, money laundering, WHIMS, and health and safety. Sadly, I believe management should be more strict in not only getting the job done but to have it done properly. I feel they do not put their full efforts forward. The hardest part of my job is just the constant 7-11pm shifts, I enjoy long shifts and being busy all day. Lastly, the most enjoyable part of my job is the people. I connect in some way with almost everyone in Walmart. I enjoy the inside Walmart jokes, the friendships and smiles from customers, telling you, you did a job well done.
