Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
They believe that someone that has never worked at Walmart can’t come in and be a manager even though you have multiple years of experience. They want to throw you onto the lowest position (cashier) and tell you that if a managerial position comes up you can apply. To me that trying to downgrade my self worth. They also advertise the position especially the management position but they really have plans to fill it from within so makes no sense applying for a supervisor or a manager if you have never been a cashier before lol.

Awesome group to work with.

Management are all very hands on and everyone is very family oriented. Anytime I need time off there is never a problem. Cashiers are all very friendly

Pros

Close to where I live

No fun, sad people

Management was controlling and micro management was another problem. The job was too easy to be so competitive between management and employees With unfair heirarchy

Management is horrible

You’ll start with a few shifts of watching training videos and then they throw you onto the floor with absolute no direction and expect you to know everything. Management don’t communicate with each other well and are horribly unprofessional. Decent job to gain some experience but wouldn’t recommend.

Pros

Nice coworkers, not crazy busy (unless it’s near a holiday), paid breaks (under 20 mins)

Cons

Bad management who are unprofessional, stupid dress code, only 10% discount

Management is supportive

I enjoyed working here. Management was supportive and the culture there was very healthy and friendly. The pay could be better though (they pay minimum wage). It’s a good choice if you want flexibility but not a long-term place to work unless you want to climb up the ladder

No Mastercards, no work

They don’t tell you prior to accepting the job just how much MasterCards impact your work hours as a cashier. They want you to do everything: be a cashier, raise money for donations, get MasterCard applications, clean the till…and all for a starting wage of 15 cents above minimum wage. The managers have all these “surveys” but never listen to feedback, the lunchrooms/washrooms are dirty & the work is tough (picking up heavy items, standing on your feet all shift, dealing with ignorant customers etc.) The only decent things are that they offer health insurance benefits which is unusual for retail & the 20% off discount days due to the pandemic were nice. That’s about it. Don’t work here unless you have no other choice.

Nice and cooperative staff

Cold environment, nice staff and co operative too. They give more preferences to safety and follow all rules and regulations of safety. Sometime heavy work. And too cold in freezer.

Pros

Good salary

Cons

Sometimes heavy work

Too Many Bad Apples

Management at my store conduct random searches of your private property, which is a huge violation of personal safety on private property and a breach of rights. There isn't a strict hiring process, so you don't get to know your co-workers before they quit for a better position. Huge turnover rate. No access to fresh water for employees during break. Training is very lackluster and employees are expected to know what they haven't been taught. Management actively discuss the poor work ethics of some indivuduals with other employees. It's a good position to get your foot in the door, however my advice is to start looking for another job the moment you get hired.

Pros

Job flexibility, close proximity, slow-paced

Cons

Min wage, privacy breaches, ethical violations, insufficient training, no refreshments, part time working full time, no union

I don't know about other Walmart's but the one I worked at was ok

The most difficult part was the constant pressure to get people sign up for Walmart Mastercard, you have to ask dozens of people before maybe one will sign up. It also depends on the manager. One manager was pressuring every day, it was very stressful. I mean it's not really worth the minimum wage. That's why front end Walmart is a revolving door. Then we had a new manager and he was more relaxed about it. Also it's difficult to exchange or give away shifts. Walmart is 20 years behind in this regard. You have to fill out a paper form and then chase a manager to sign it. Other companies I worked at you can easily exchange or give away shifts online. Another stressful part of the job is dealing with difficult customers. Obviously this is being Walmart the customers here are different from customers that would you find at Loblaws. Also lack of medical benefits, you get them only after one year and you still have to pay for them. Good things are paid on time, relaxed dress code (as long as it's black you can wear jeans, sweaters etc) and 10% discount

Upper Management has no clue.

The usual complaints about the ethics and morals of upper management. Culture has undergone a drastic change since I started. Company's own algorithms and staffing program tell them they need 8 people for a job and they want it done well and quickly with 3. Store managers unnecessarily cut budgets and put strain on workers and put them in dangerous situations to impress their corporate bosses. Taking your allotted sick days/leave will anger managers, even though no compensation is given for unused time off. Management will rarely side with associates on critical issues. Management is a popularity contest where fitting in is more important than actual work being done. Managers have no issue dumping their work on others who will begrudgingly do their work. Job had become dangerous due to pandemic and general attitude of customers and other staff.

A good place to start and evolve

Walmart Canada is a good place to work and socialize. The salary is the minimum wage at first but if you work hard and show yourself and your abilities you can develop yourself.
