Poor place to work.
Deli Stocker (Current Employee), GoderichJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: proper breaks
Cons: lack of staff
Lack of staff, managers always seem to hate their jobs. All of the workers are just counting down the minutes until they go on break or go home.

Rude People, low pay
In-Stock (Current Employee), Calgary, ABJanuary 27, 2015
Pros: paid 15s
Cons: co-workers, customers, pay, benefits, non-paid lunch
I work in stock, which is a warehouse style position, you're payed as much as the door greater and everyone else. 11.55$/h due to evening bonus.
No one at Walmart works full time, little to no room for advancement.
Paid 15min breaks, unpaid hour lunch. Free coffee bring your own cup.
10% discount, no health care, discounts at some partnered stores[things you can't afford anyways]
You have to buy your own steel toes etc

Worked alone. Fairly boring
Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee), Calgary AbJanuary 26, 2015
I would clock in at 10am, take a break from 2 until 3 and resume working until 7:30. Most days I was alone all day. During this time I took passport photos and family photos. I would also advertise for photo shoots. When I was not busy at the store I would go around Walmart and ask costumers if they would like to come in for a photo shoot.

Supercenter Customer Service Manager (Former Employee), fort saskatchewan albertaJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: working with people i became friends with
Cons: constantly under staffed
- during a typical day you are over worked due to high number of customers and low number of staff
- I learnt how to effectively manage my time
- most of the managers there treat you with respect but they have high expectations and little understanding of staffing shortages
- I loved the people that i worked with
- the hardest part of the job was the constantly being under staffed and having to try and make up for the lack of people
- my co-workers were the best part of the job

Not the greatest
Department Manager (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABJanuary 26, 2015
Pros: co-workers
Cons: everything
I worked here for 3 years. I have made some great friends, and that's about all I can say that was good about the place and enjoyable. For the amount of work some of us have to do and the little amount of money we were paid is garbage. The discount is even worse. The fact that this company makes billions of dollars and does not care about their employees is disgusting. Most of the management has let it gone to their head that they are management - you work at Walmart, so take it easy!

Shipper/receiver (Former Employee), Red Deer, ABJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: made money. made a couple friends.
Cons: bad money bad boss bad options to move forward.
My typical day consisted of getting up at 5:30-6:00 in the morning everyday besides weekends. Getting in a truck with no heater to drive for a half hour to an hour to get to the job sites that we undertook. Witch were usually houses. In very cold weather we would put up insulation in all the house that we were assigned. I worked for a full year for the same person never received and pay increase or any promotion what so ever.

Department Manager (Former Employee), Kitchener, ONJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: health and dental benefits
Cons: unstable unpredictable
You'd think it was a great place to work but walmart has changed. When I was there in 2005 I loved it. Now it's all about reducing costs and treating employees poorly. I tried my best to stay loyal but their policy contradictions always get under your skin. One day you're a great employee, the next day they are writing up 10 employees for a minor mistake (which stops you from getting promoted). I've seen dedicated employees there for 14 years and get fired over a small mistake.

Good short term, bad long term.

Working at Walmart
Cashier (Current Employee), Woodstock, ONJanuary 24, 2015
Pros: very good to let you know you've done a good job.
Cons: having to ask about the walmart mastercard.
The most enjoyable part about the job is that I get to meet and talk with people, maybe even make their day. I also get to see people I know that I don't usually run into often. Management is very quick to let you know when you've done a good job and when you've made a mistake, they talk you in a respectable tone and show you what should have been done instead.

Fun workplace but stressful
Cashier/Sales Associate/Customer Service Rep (Current Employee), Scarborough ONJanuary 23, 2015
It's a fun environment to work in except for the time when there is a shortage of staff and long line ups. Great for a part time job. Co-workers are fun to work around and you get to meet some really great customers and at the same time some really rude ones which is pretty common in a retail environment.

A pretty good place to work with mostly responsible managers
Dairy worker (Former Employee), Lethbridge, ABJanuary 21, 2015
Pros: mostly good managers, helpful coworkers, consistent work
Cons: bad scheduling, needed more training for new employees
I often worked at 5 AM at Walmart (South) stocking the dairy section. I also worked the late shift until 11 PM often. It was at this job that I learned how to use the mobile computer and the pallet jack. For the most part my coworkers were friendly and helpful, as were the managers. Unfortunately the schedule was a mess, and often times employees were booked to work until 11 PM, with a 5 AM shift booked the next day. The managers seemed overworked a lot of the time as well, and often seemed to have many problems to deal with. The hardest part about this job was memorizing were all the products were in the store so that I could accurately help customers with what they needed, but I got the hang of it. It might have been useful for it to have been included in the training though.

Good starting job and experience
Cashier (Former Employee), KitchenerJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: very reasonable break hours
Cons: the emotional strain you can get after constantly dealing with rude customers, pressured to promote mastercard to every customer
- Even though I was on a cash I got to do multiple jobs throughout the store and increased my knowledge and skills

- Really nice coworkers

- Understanding management when it came to personal time off

- Enjoyed working the closing shifts more than the mornings because of the managers who worked at that time

- Hardest part of the job would be handling rude comments made by customers who were taking out their bad day on you

- Staff becomes more of a family than coworkers after a while

- Met amazing friends working there
