Retail Associate (Current Employee) – Kingston, ON – 23 March 2018
You will quickly learn the pros and cons retail if working at Walmart. Days usually fly by and there are many employees to make friends with. Managers are generally reasonable and understanding but can be spread too thin due to the high levels of staff generally.
Employee Discount, lots of hours for part-timers
Variety of shift start times depending on department

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Woodstock, ON – 8 March 2018
Walmart is a strong, stable and inclusive company. It's an extremely fast paced environment that constantly evolves and changes to stay ahead of the retail landscape.
Walmart has a strong, resonating culture that promotes a team working structure for their associates and managers. Training and development for their associates and management is a major foundation of their store culture and as a result, most of their managers are developed in house and hired within.
Walmart provides competitive wages and benefits for both their hourly associates, store management, field support and home office associates. They provide an annual, target based bonus for all of their employees and, as mentioned above, succession planning and personal development.
As a manager, the one difficulty at times can be work life balance. As the retail and grocery business is busiest evenings and weekends you are expected to be there for that key business.
Strong personal development programs, competitive wages and bonus plans, competitive benefits, room for career growth.
Assisting costumers (Former Employee) – sherwood park alberta – 8 March 2018
I only worked there for a couple of months. The management at the particular store I worked in would degrade every worker, and the only other walmart in my town was owned by my owners own dad. I'm sure it would be a good place to work elsewhere, but sherwood parks walmarts don't have good reputation.
Evening Stocker (Former Employee) – Bradford, ON – 8 March 2018
Employees often had to pick up the slack of others, and cover jobs they were not trained on due to short notice call ins, otherwise day to day was stable and enjoyable as far as retail goes it was a pleasant year spent and health permitting id love to still be there.
Stockperson (Former Employee) – Nanaimo, BC – 7 March 2018
I only worked as an unloader in the back room, but days went by quick and there was never a shortage of something to do. I often stopped to help customers on the floor, and push come to shove I wouldn't say no if I found myself back there.
Overnight Support Manager (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 7 March 2018
The thing about Walmart. It was my favourite place to work and slowly progressed into the worst. The Job is easy, I was made support manager in my Second Year. Moving ahead is easy as well. However, you have to turn a blind eye to the dysfunction and chaos and conflicting goals. when your manager comes to you and asks you to do something impossible you have a choice to make, You can be agreeable and say yes even though they intentionally understaff you and you stay 3 hours after your shift to get it done. Or, you tell them why it cant be done, your intention to try anyway and leave when you are scheduled to leave without completing the task. if you selected the Latter, You will never get promoted and you've jeopardized any chances of moving ahead. this is the climate in Walmart, nothing you do is good enough or appreciated and you have to keep your mouth shut to make it worth anything. I opted to keep my sanity
eCommerce Associate (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – 7 March 2018
If wal-mart could pay me a living wage, I'd stay there forever. The job culture, the training, the respect and management are all amazing. However, they can't afford to pay so many associates a respectable wage.
Build my career profile with the world's largest retail company
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Delta, BC – 7 March 2018
Great company that needs to work more on HR side at store level. Wish they had a local head office. District manager and BC head office team have no interest in development of management unless a person has networking.
