Cashier (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ON – November 3, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: standing in one spot for long hours
good experience. learned costumer service measures when it came to many situations. fellow employees were helpful and worked together. Hardest part may be standing in one spot for long hours. the most enjoyable part will be conversing and engaging with the costumers..
Sales Associate/ Department Manager (Current Employee), Flin Flon, MB – November 3, 2015
The most enjoyable part of the job is the people I work with and being able to help customers. I love my job because I really like working freight and keeping busy as your day just seems to fly by. What I find is the hardest part of the day is not having enough hours in a day to get everything done.
It was a wonderful job, and I loved the management but I was in school or working 7 days a week.
Cashier (Former Employee), Spruce Grove, AB – November 3, 2015
Pros: Wonderful workers
Cons: Always busy
Management was wonderful. I had a blast working there. I learned lots about being a cashier and customer service. It was hard however, to be in school Mon-Fri and work EVERY Fri-Sun. Not much family time and what not. I really enjoyed talking to the customers and giving them a good customer service experience.
Overnight Stocker (Current Employee), Chatham-Kent, ON – November 3, 2015
Pros: Good co-workers
Cons: Low pay
Great people to work with. I found management in some areas lacking communication. No benefits for part time employees, and sometimes they reduce hours, even after they hire many new employees. Not many postings internally for advancement.
Cashier/Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), St. John's, NL – November 1, 2015
Pros: Good co-workers
Cons: Too many hours
Overall, not a bad place to work. However, you must make sure you continue to check your scheduke, as managers change them without telling you causing you to be late/ miss certain days. Very busy and fast paced work enviroment and many different kinds of customers. Must be able to tolerate rude customers and stay calm as well as try your best to understand different languages, including sign language.
Overnight Support Manager (Former Employee), Summerside, PE – October 31, 2015
Wal-Mart may be the best place I ever worked, the work was fast paced and always changing. everyday was different, the people were great though not always the best motivated people, the management team try very hard to change that, through different in store and out of store events.
Customer Service Manager (Former Employee), London, ON – October 31, 2015
A typical day at Walmart consisted of reporting to the cash office in the morning. Collecting money from the cash office and making sure cash registers all had their proper floats. The rest of the day, you just wing it with a smile, but be professional at the same time. I learned a lot about working with people working here. Management treated people well who did their job. The reason I didn't want to quit the job earlier was because of how awesome my co-workers were. I loved working with a lot of them. The hardest part of the job was making sure certain co-workers were doing their job properly. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting customers to appreciate your hard work by thanking you as they left the store.
now is a hard place work and be happy love my co worker though

At one time this store was great to work for but in the last few years they have lost respect for there people and there customers...it in now not run by family so they just don't seem to care it is very sad and unhappy place to work any more.
Cashier & Returns (Former Employee), Markham, ON – October 29, 2015
the job required a fast paced working environment- the line ups were always long and customers consistently in need of assistance. The job required me to work diligently, quickly and efficiently. Overall staff were very friendly and it was a collegial work environment.
Backroom Manager/ Cashier (Former Employee), Kingston, ON – October 28, 2015
Pros: training is free
Cons: long hours, need better spiffs for staff
most of the staff is excellent to work with. Management has few issue some mangers are great there some were picked from god who knows were. They need to regulate the shift better to day people and afternoon staff not mix it up. the hours suck there mangers are expected to work 45hours and what they consider part time staff is 35 hours that is not right. Could be great place but need to change there ways of doing things.
customer service manager (Current Employee), Fort McMurray, AB – October 27, 2015
fun working environment with friendly and supportive staff. the most enjoyable part of the job was the the team work and connections each and every employee has with each other.Personally i enjoyed working alongside smart, energetic and innovative young individuals and learning from them. there was a lot of variety in what i did each day, ranging from monotonous tasks to training new hires ,supervising busy font end department with limited or fewer staffs , covering for 2-3 staffs at times that were really challenging and exciting at times
Store Standards Associate (Former Employee), Toronto, ON – October 27, 2015
A typical day at work would consist of collecting carts in the parking lot and organizing them for customers to collect. Also helping customers with items that may be to heavy for them to lift. Further more, if the store was not busy I would assist in shipping and receiving department. I learned to take be more assertive while i was working there. Management was fairly well and they kept open lines of communications. I enjoyed being able to helped customers and put a smile on there faces. The hardest part of the job is difficult to determine. I would probably say the weekends because Walmart is very busy, trying to keep pace to provide good customer service. In regards to co-workers i got along with everyone which i feel is important for you to have success in any company.
Department Manager (Current Employee), Wetaskiwin, AB – October 26, 2015
Pros: Charity work.
Cons: Not always enough training.
A typical day at work is not always typical. A plan may be made ahead for yourself but upon arrival management may have other ideas and priorities for you. Customers always help in deciding what you accomplish for your day also because they are number one and require your first attention. Working here takes a very versatile person. Something I much enjoyed about my work.
I learned that while I feel appreciated, I may not be.
Management is always available for open door communications but is not always on your side when things go wrong.
The staff in this store are always on your side. Very friendly and accommodating when help is required. Beware: with close friendly co-workers comes some level of non-accomplishment when looking for advancement. If you're too friendly with your co-workers, advancement may be in jeopardy.
The hardest part of the job is finding time to get it all done. Most days there just aren't enough hours.
The most enjoyable parts of the job are the co-workers and always having something to keep your time busy.
