Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 3 August 2017
it overall was a good experience until i hit my 2 1/2 year mark and was terminated without a cause by the new management staff, until then the hours were good and it was a fun job at the end of the night.
Customer Service Specialist/ Photo Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Moncton, NB – 3 August 2017
I have worked at Wal-mart for just over four years now. I was a photo lab associate, then I transferred stores, to which I became an electronics associate. Now I am a Customer Experience Associate. Working at Wal-mart has taught me how to be polite to be people that are being unnecessarily rude. There is little to no room for advancement or for a raise. You're co-workers are idiots and if you're good at your job you end up doing theirs. If someone calls in sick they make no effort to replace them unless you ask them to. We're always understaffed and over-worked.
Don't work at Wal-Mart unless you have to. I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy.
Second Shift In-stock Associate (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 2 August 2017
I work 8 hours a day and deal with a number of terrible managers. I have been in the company for 2 years and have nothing to show for it. When few veteran members were on shift I took the mantle of responsibility and tried to hold the team together but was over-ruled by managers who have been there for less than 2 months.
Retail Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Wye Road, Sherwood Park, AB – 2 August 2017
A typical day at work consist of off-loading goods from trucks and palletizing them according to each department in the store.(3-4 trucks on average). One big offload 3- 4 times per week which is what I was schedule for, depending on the season. Picking stocking/picking merchandise in the back room. To me it was easy work, being in sharp and all but definitely wasn't worth what I was being paid. Most days we were under staffed which made it very difficult to have the trucks offloaded in a timely manor or you would be written up is what we were threatened with.
Poor management all in all. The most enjoyable part of the job was my 1 hour lunch break..
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 1 August 2017
At Walmart every day was a new journey, some days were very stressful. I enjoyed working at Walmart my only issue was working nights, as part of the management team it was mandatory. The most enjoyable part of this job was interacting with lots of people.
Logistics Analyst (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 August 2017
Stability was definitely and issue and there was no room for advancement regardless of tenure with the company. i mean i want to feel happy and welcome in an environment as Walmart, not feeling like it's an obligation.
I worked in the paper and good section. I had a partner that trained me and worked with me for a while. I talked to new people when they were looking for something or need a suggestion on a product. I would go to customer serves to retrieve unbought items and return it to the shelf. I like that at the end of the day work was done I went home with no stress or worries. it was an easy positon
Fulfillment Associate/Temp Lead Unload (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 1 August 2017
if you show any sign of competence at your job your workload will soon be bigger than any of your coworkers. 90% of your coworkers are idiots and do not have a good work ethic. Most managers seem lost at their job and don't know answer to basic questions that you would think a manager should know. To close this out the scheduling sucks, didn't have two days off in a row for over six months.
Dairy Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 31 July 2017
Walmart - really boring job, only good for students - dont feel motivated after a couple of months - Tasks are repetitive - Pay is low - Lack of employees make the work harder and you start to hate it more even if its for the money -
Walmart is a fun place to work. However, I am unable to meet all my expense requirement with minimal wages.
