Friendly place to work and management is always available to talk to.
Maintenance Worker (Former Employee) –  London, ONJuly 14, 2016
Plenty of security as there is always people moving around, as long as an employer wants to work there will be hours.
Many of the hours will depend on the season the store is going into
Pros
Lockers, vending machines and a lunchroom to relax in during off hours
Cons
extra hours are not alway available to the employee when he/ she wants

Walmart is a great place to get started.
Dairy Clerk / Cashier (Current Employee) –  Trenton, ONJuly 13, 2016
Walmart is a job well suited for someone that doesn't have alot of experience working. It offers various types of jobs and work levels. However, this job is not for someone who wants to be proud of the work they accomplish as tasks usually run into the next without any sense of completion.
Pros
times had nacho/ icecream/ pizza/ donut days (all free)
Cons
No sense of completion, management never agrees with eachother so it is hard to get a straight answer

Fun and Dynamic Work Environment
Customer Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  Hamilton, ONJuly 9, 2016
Typically would restock shelves for tomorrow morning or the morning of, I learned how to stock items both on the sales floor and in back storage. Management was personable and regularly rotated the store. Hardest part of work was changing the 'paper' in the film making machine, having to do it in a black box, only being able to use your hands to figure it out, no eyes. The most enjoyable part was putting out the display cases for large movie or game release.
Pros
Sociable and open environment
Cons
Understaffed stores

Fun loving workplace , always donates to charity and amazing ethics
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Pembroke, ONJuly 8, 2016
When you go to work in the morning or afternoon all employees are always greeting you with warm greetings. Management are always communicating with the other associates to make sure everyone has an amazing work experience. In Claims I am in the back room and do all the markdowns for defective merchandise and sent it back to the companies, My previous 5 years have been between Cash and Accounting. The most difficult part of the job is trying to get help for heavy lifting, everyone is usually busy so it is interesting. The best part about this Job is the forever engaging physical work and paperwork, along with everyday being different so you don't find your job repetitious.
Pros
free muffins and coffee every two weeks, Picnic tables outside, Multiple discounts
