Payed well for retail—$14.15/hour with a 30c raise after one year. 10% employee discount. Stressful at times, a lot to learn and you don’t get a whole lot of training, just thrown in and have to learn as you go. Customers sucked, which is expected in customer service, but enjoyed my co-workers and my supervisors were easy to get along with (mostly). Hours sucked, unless I picked up shifts which was easy to do as they were always looking for more people to call in because of others calling in sick.
It's a job, the management is great and love to help. A lot of room growth and development. The most enjoyable about the job is the staff that come with it, the hardest is learning some stuff you might not know such as using a cashier, but the training and managers are understandable.
Management is great, and they have a open door policy
Can be tough on the body if you work a lot
I have worked for Walmart before in Cornwall Ontario in automotive and in Brockville in the same department and I felt very comfortable and successful at my job experience I enjoyed helping out with customers and with management. And I would love to get back into it again.
Wal-mart likes to make it seem like they are being good to their employees, but in reality, the employees hours are constantly being squeezed so the corporation can squeeze that little bit more of extra profit out for their rich shareholders. Customers are forced through self checkouts that they don't want to use, and customers who refuse create lineups that then the staff that is supposed to be stocking shelves and assisting customers have to leave their jobs to put through those customers. Leaving no one on the floor to assist customers, or stock shelves, which then the employees get in trouble for because their work isn't done. Puts a tremendous amount of stress on the staff.
I was hired as a full-time employee, only worked about an average of 25 hours and was told they didn’t have enough hours for staff. Their solution was to hire 15 more cashiers so hours were cut In half. Also, if you have nothing better today than to scream at a Walmart employee for something they can’t control you’re the scum of the earth

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Managers are absolutely trash, got treated like no one else to the extent that i wanted to quit on the spot and eventually did. They treat student different because they all are middle aged and don’t get that injuries and other things come up. Staff are rarely good, trying to make friends there are hard but i was lucky to have 4 very good staff friends. It’s a rough place and not good at all.
Management are always friendly and show that they care about you. Hardest part of the job is dealing with the customers that don't really care about you, only that they can get what they want for the best price and and not have to wait in line to pay for their purchases.
Standing all day and annoying customers
There are lots of other employees to interact with. There’s also a lot of customers everyday to socialize with while they shop at Walmart. Wish benefits were available earlier then they are.
Hour lunch, paid breaks other then lunch.
Not enough hours
While working at walmart I met many coworkers that I continue to be friends with. Everyone is relatively friendly and willing to help each other. I learned how to focus in loud and busy situations. The atmosphere is both professional and friendly which allows for enjoyable work. Worst part of the job was the fluctuation in work hours which makes pay sometimes hard to predict. The best part of the job was the people I worked with.
mix of long and short shifts, availability adjustment
some early mornings and late nights, pay fluctuations
As a cashier at Walmart I have strengthened my human relation skills and problem solving skills. I have made several friendships and strengthened teamwork skills. The hardest part of the job is dealing with the difficult customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is the "family unit" inside Walmart.
You meet a lot of interesting people.
You deal with the difficult customers but still remain happy.
