A good place to work
Photo lab Technician (Former Employee), Williams Lake, BCSeptember 3, 2014
Cons: concreet floor.
Most days are filled with customer service. On the rare slow days there is still lots to do, like cleaning and organizing.
I learned how to make specialty photo products and about the Electronics section of the store.
Management is nice and will meet with you if you have anything you need to discuss. Co-workers are very friendly and made the working – more... atmosphere enjoyable.
The hardest part of the job was trying to help the customers before they asked for your help. Being able to read them got easier over time.
The most enjoyable part was helping customers and seeing them walk away satisfied with there purchase. – less

Not bad
Produce Associate- Full Time (Current Employee), Cambridge, ontarioSeptember 2, 2014
Once you hit the groove and learn your job its pretty predictable. I would recomend this as a first job.

It is customer service so you learn how to be diplomatic in dealing with people. Which is a great skill to have in life.

People you work with come from all walks of life there isnt one type of person youll encounter the most and its easy to make – more... friends there.

In seven years I have learned more than I can share here but I think its worth the experience. – less

Down to skeleton staff
floor associate (Current Employee), OrleansSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: none - any incentive rewards have also disappeared
Cons: too many things to do in one day
Job descriptions are out the window. So many positions have been eliminated or combined that everybody is doing every job. When someone leaves, IF they fill the position it's changed from full time to part time.

With such few staff on the floor, customers can't find anyone to help them, and some leave. PEOPLE WILL STOP SHOPPING HERE IF THEY HAVE TO – more... WALK TO THE OTHER END OF THE STORE TO FIND SOMEONE TO HELP THEM.

Sometimes you have to spend money to make money. Start spending it again on more staff to have better customer service and better morale. – less

Support Manager (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCAugust 31, 2014
Pros: profit share
Cons: politics
mainly working the freight, work safety , and making sure that the store is ready for the customer by 7 a.m. By working at walmart i learned about respect to fellow associate, respect for me is number one, if you earned the respect of a person, they look up to you and they follow your lead. my co-workers, i considered them as my second family. like – more... family we help each other. the challenges that i face, is how could you manage a day at work that you short of staff.how u could u be able to finish the job, when your shorthanded with associate , that when i learn to prioritized what is needed to be done. enjoyable part, when at the end of the day, i walk all through the store, and when i see that it is customer ready, and when management appreciate my job. – less

Sales Associate and Overnight Stocker (Former Employee), Peterborough, ONAugust 27, 2014
Pros: store discount
Cons: fluctuating hours
At walmart I would often stock shelves and make the department I was in look nice. On occasion I would have to fill as a cashier. I learned many new and interesting things working for walmart like how to operate a cash register, what to do during emergencies, excellent customer service as well as many other things. Both my management and co-workers – more... were easily to get along with and for the most part everyone worked as a well oiled machine. Hardest part of my job would probably have to be irate customers but in the end it was worth helping the customers that really appreciated the help. – less

Cashier (Former Employee), Sherwood ParkAugust 21, 2014
Cons: long hours, language barrier, unorganized, no direction
I didn't get too much direction and the first week I wasn't trained that much, so I had to watch and teach myself a lot. A lot of other employees would talk in a different language, there was a big language barrier. The management was not well organized and I never really saw the managers.
