Productive workplace
Stocker Associate (Current Employee), Camrose, ABMay 13, 2015
Pros: Overall Experience
Cons: Long Hours
With my experience at Walmart both as a Cashier and a Meat stocker, the typical day at work was long, and productive. I learned everything from processing a transaction, to safely lifting boxes and properly positioning merchandise onto coolers, racks, and shelves.
The hardest part of my job was the amount of lifting I did on an everyday basis which made the day seem longer and exhausting, but the most enjoyable part of my job was communicating with the customers and helping them with anything they may need.

Excellent management, friendly environment
Sales Associate, Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), Port Perry, ONMay 12, 2015
Pros: Great management, environment was easy to learn and work in.
Cons: Longer drive, on your feet majority of the time.
Able to do multiple jobs while working, which was a good way to gain experience within other departments.

Management was very friendly and approachable and always happy to help with any issues.

Liked how it was a fast paced environment, however it did have moments where it would slow down and you change pace. Great balance so things did not get to stressful.

Hardest part personally was the drive there was a little long depending on where you live.

I have been at Wal-Mart for 4 years, as a supervisor of the second shift unloading team, where we offload 2-3 trailer nightly in a timely manner. there is no hard part of the job once all parts of the team work together.

Horrible, Bad breaks, Did not care about employees
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee), St. Catharines, ONMay 10, 2015
Management are not understanding and did not help me grow and succeed but instead made a hostile environment for me. Did not really care about their employees and made it hard for many employees to approach management with personal problems.

Walmart
Seasonal Staff (Current Employee), Winnipeg, MBMay 9, 2015
Pros: Walmart Discount Card
Cons: Long hours, Hardly any lunch breaks, No career advancement, Cut hours
I am a hard working student and young father. Walmart does not recognize this or care. They put me to work like cattle. They will not give me the full time title because they do not want to waste money on giving me or my young family any benefits.

Very comfortable work environment with a supportive staff
Electronics and Sports Associate (Former Employee), Niagara Falls, ONMay 7, 2015
I would ask about any assignments that would be required of me; whether it was price changes or product rearrangement. I would meet with fellow workers around my area to ask if they needed assistance and discuss how each department was to be manned if they happened to be understaffed. My fellow staff members were extremely cooperative and we all worked together to ensure that each area was properly covered so that we could reach each other at any time if somebody needed an extra hand. This was the most enjoyable part of the day as I was never in any one area at any specific time, I could freely move around to help customers and associates in departments where I wasn't normally situated. During the course of my stay at Wal-Mart, I worked in the Garden Centre, Pets, Electronics, Sports and Automotive, Paint and Hardware, House ware and the Toy department. I also took a number of cash shifts and worked Men's Apparel.

Worst employer
Second In-Stock (Former Employee), Calgary, ABMay 6, 2015
Pros: Benefits
Cons: Paid next to nothing, bad managers
Worked part-time while in school. Paid you next to nothing and expect you to break limbs for them. Only 2 out of the 6 managers of the store actually cared about you and how you felt about the job, the others could care less. Co-workers were the best part of job. Overall worst place i have EVER worked

Good tempo retail job
SALES ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), Belleville, ONMay 6, 2015
Pros: Breaks paid for
Cons: Shift work
At Walmart I would clock in and proceed to my designated department. Once there I would either be taking out merchandise and stocking them in their designated areas while helping customers. Or I would be taking new skids apart with product and putting them through the electronic system and dating them once in their designated area in the back room. I would work alongside 2-5 co workers that would be completing the same tasks as I, some days I would be working alongside a department supervisor but always having store assistant managers just a page away. The hardest part of the job was learning the process that everything has to be done by. The job although very repetitive always had a good tempo to it.
