Stockroom Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJuly 3, 2014
Pros: opportunity for growth
Cons: barely above minimum wage pay
I spent 7 years at Wal-Mart, starting as a Cashier and climbing to Department Manager. I learned a great many things during my time there; I even had to opportunity to attend their Management Training School. It is a fast paced environment with a lively associate culture. However, I felt that after 7 years my hard work was no longer appreciated when – more... I was shuffled to the night shift after having cut the “shrink” due to theft in their Jewelry department by half in my one year of its management, with no thank-you. This employer is wonderful if you are a student looking for part-time work or are looking to join upper Management, but is not ideal as a long term associate level career. – less

Material Handler (Former Employee), Spruce Grove, ABJuly 3, 2014
During the day i would unload trucks one box at a time place them on skids then if there was a second truck unload that one and then after we wrap the skids and pull them to the floor to there specific places. The managers were not very helpful and the co-workers were rude.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Maple, ONJuly 3, 2014
Work was simple.
Sometimes too much is asked of you at once and it is impossible to complete every task given to you in a day because they keep getting added to your list.

Cashier (Current Employee), Alliston, ONJune 30, 2014
Interacting with customers is always a plus, as well as co-workers. The hardest part about this job is helping a customer who is disappointed in either a product or an issue that is related to this store. The best part about this job is being able to communicate with new faces everyday, and putting a smile on customer's faces.

Stocked shelves on over night crew (Former Employee), Brockville, ONJune 29, 2014
Pros: kept me busy and on my toes.
Cons: repetitive lifting of heavy crates caused me physical trauma.
During a typical night at work I mostly unloaded skids and distributed products to their proper shelves. I feel like I gained exceptional organization skills as well as I became very familiar with a scanner called 'Gemini'. Though it was difficult to unload my quota of skids during the allotted time, it also made the night fly by which I absolutely – more... loved. Being entirely engrossed in my work while being surrounded by helpful and friendly co-workers and management that left you alone unless help was needed was great. Unfortunately, due to a previous injury to my left hand I wasn't able to keep the job as the continuous lifting caused me a lot of pain. – less

Highly productive workplace.
Sales Associate in Toys Department / Cashier (Current Employee), Medicine Hat, AlbertaJune 28, 2014
Pros: friendly staff, occasional rewards
Cons: underpaid for amount of hard work accomplished.
A typical day at work would include stocking shelves with large quantities of products, relieving cashiers for their breaks, non-stop movement and helping customers with what they need.
I learned how to deal with customers, and in my personal life, people, that could be considered difficult to handle.
The management and co-workers were easy to work – more... with and were also easy to ask for help when needed.
The hardest part of my job was picking up after kids non-stop, but the most enjoyable part was helping others and making great friendships throughout my work period. – less

Decent Workplace
Overnight staff (Former Employee), Grande Prairie, ABJune 27, 2014
Pros: friendly-workers, staff discount, decent wage
Cons: too many managers working at the same time, conflicting directions were sometimes given
I actually found Walmart to be a great employer. The hours were steady and predictable, my fellow staff were super friendly and helpful, and the pay was above minimum wage, which was a huge plus.

A typical day at work for me while employed there was arriving at 10:30pm to get ready for an 11pm start. Staff meetings would be at 10:45, where everyone – more... would find out which departments and tasks they had that shift. I was usually in grocery rotating stock, restocking if product was available, and pulling stock to the front of displays if none was available to restock. I also helped set up new displays. Occasionally an employee would be pulled from their assigned tasks to help in another department.

During our lunch break it wasn't uncommon to find a large number of staff members in the lunchroom playing Magic the Gathering, or some other multiplayer game. And at the end of the shift it wasn't uncommon for people to offer rides to co-workers if they were heading in the direction of their neighborhood.

All in all this was one of my best work experiences. – less

Cashier/ cosmetics associate (Former Employee), mission BCJune 26, 2014
Pros: the friendly staff
Cons: their *full time* and wage
On a day to day basis I put out stock and do price changes as well as help any customers that had any questions. Also, I learned how to time manage myself better as well as become a little more outgoing and less shy. The hardest part is prepping for inventory as well as juggling stock and customer service.
