Loved my coworkers
Customer Service Desk (Former Employee), Courtenay, BCAugust 19, 2015
Pros: Some free lunches, "family" environment
Cons: long hours, busy day
Hard place to work, very very busy, if you thrive under pressure this would be a great work environment.
Management was not that great. I would book time off with 2 months in advance and they would not give it to me, and I would have to find people to cover on my own. Were patronizing and rude.
Loved my coworkers.. we always had a lot of fun
Customers were horrible and obnoxious.. I worked customer service desk and had a couple people throw things and was yelled at several times, however, that's possible to happen anywhere you work.

Worst Place I've Ever Worked
Cashier, Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), SaskatchewanAugust 19, 2015
Pros: 10% discount.
Cons: Poor management, high turn over rate, lazy employees.
Walmart was probably the worst place that I have ever worked. I worked there for 2 years while I was in high school; I started as a cashier, then moved to be a Customer Service Rep (working at the return desk), then I moved to working in Cosmetics/Jewelry. Management and other employees treat younger people like pure trash. They didn't care how hard you worked, if you've never called in sick, always done your job; to them you were a lazy piece of garbage. Working as a cashier = worst job ever. I was constantly yelled at about an item not being the price the customer wanted, getting an employee from that department to tell me that the price that came up was in fact, correct, and the customer still take it out on me. Working at the customer service desk was pretty bad too. People always yelling at you for not returning something, and then id point to the GIANT sign that states our return policies, show it to them on the back of the receipt and then they would still ask to see a manager. During the two years that I worked at Walmart we had gone through 3 different store managers. They all sucked, none of them were ever in the store and when they were they hid out in their office. Overall, working here is not worth the disgusting wage they give you. No one deserves to put up with this terrible place everyday.

Equal opportunities at work place
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCAugust 16, 2015
The fact that Walmart gives workers equal opportunities makes it one of the best place to work. It deals with all workers with respect and cares for their well-being irrespective of race

Fun workplace
Cashier (Former Employee), Guelph, ONAugust 14, 2015
Pros: Discounted items, great people to work with
Cons: Long hours
A typical day working at Walmart Canada would be working with great people in a wide range of ages, and standing for long hours at a time. I have learned from working at Walmart that everyone should be treated equally by management and not treated as though some people can do jobs that others can't without giving them a chance. Management at Walmart is absolutely outstanding, everybody is very friendly and very understanding, along with great co-workers that are amazingly friendly and very easy to get along with. The hardest part to this job, would be standing in one spot for a long amount of time, as the most enjoyable part to this job would be the people and environment you work with and in.

Boring place to work, everybody keeps to themselves.
Cashier/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Prince George, BCAugust 12, 2015
Pros: Discounts at subway and mcdonalds
Cons: demanding on wrists, legs and back.
Have busy spurts throughout the day, all the cashiers keep to themselves, the only time they talk is if they know each other outside of work. There is a lot of favoritism, and people talk behind everyone else's back. Training wasn't very good.

Great working experience and very productive
customer spcialist (Current Employee), laval, qcAugust 11, 2015
Pros: bonuses, benefts, discount
Cons: hard labour
a typical day at work would incredibly eventful. Never boring because, of all the tasks needed done. Many clients to serve and patience and giving the best customer service is key. I have learned and grown with the company for 10 years and learned how to manage and deal with individuals and different scenarios that occur within the working environment.

Working with different individuals improved my standards and capabilities to work with anyone or anywhere. I learned that it takes a team to make a company work and I will continue to indorse that throughout my upcoming working environment and experiences.

The hardest part of my job would be the want to please all customers and individuals I work with or for. Sometimes, it is not that easy due to lack of stock or not being able to find what each individual is looking for. However, we try our best and do what is needed to make them happy with the service provided.

the most enjoyable is working with different individuals every day and serving extraordinary people. Building a relationship with people is exciting. Meeting new people makes working with the public exciting and gives us willingness to pursue our jobs.

Customers come first
Cashier (Current Employee), Waterloo, ONAugust 11, 2015
Typical day at Wal-Mart is helping and serving customers in a friendly fast paced manner, and being efficient. When not helping customers due to low volume of customers in store, I will be stocking shelves and even doing restock when possible. I also do customer service/courtesy desk and help customers there and refund and return things. I try and make the customers happy as customers always come first. I have learned a lot while working here and I plan on using what I have learned in my future employment and everyday life when possible. My co-workers are absolutely fantastic and we are like one big family.
