upbeat work environment/ bad managment
Produce Associate (Current Employee) – Amherstburg, ON – 15 June 2018
Working at Walmart isn't that bad at the start. The employees are nice, the work isn't that hard, the pay is good. Although, after working their for awhile you start to see the true colours. The management is horrible, the back pain you experience is noticeable after a couple of months, and the cut back of hours.
Your managers will bark at you to do insane amount of work in a short period of time while they sit around making no attempt to assist you. Than after thats all said and done they will belittle you because you didn't "fulfill their request"
The worst part is the hour cut back. I was working nearly 37 hours a week last summer, which is perfect for saving money for school. now they barely give me 12 hours a week. This is even happening to the full timers. Just last month in the break room there was a conversation going on where an older worker was talking about having to sell his house because he can afford his mortgage. Is the really the best course of action to take Walmart?
Overall the work environment at Walmart is tolerable while the management is intolerable. The actual work is low stress until the managers come by and ask you to do something that doesn't really need to be done, which cause you to sometimes stay after hours when you should be at home with your family. But this may just be my Walmart, who really knows what the others are like.
This is my brutally honest review of the current Walmart I am employed too.
