Overall I liked working at Walmart the team I worked with was easy going and fun. I recommend working here. I had to move away so that is why I no longer work there.

The experience was overall positive. The responsibilities provided in my role were engaging and varied. I considered myself part of a team and had a lot of support from my fellow employees.

I love working for Walmart Canada. This company cares for its employees and offers a vast array of benefits. The care for its customers are second to none. I can rave about my store because I live it and see it everyday.

Management sucked, was given a promotion and they took it away without telling me then proceeded to give it to another employee and stop talking to me, create opposite schedules so I couldn’t confront them. Wouldn’t work there ever again.

Pushing carts isn't that hard until it gets busy and winter arrives, this makes the job itself a lot more demanding and exhausting. Our store is filled with the most friendly and amazing associates, if anyone needed help they would ask an associate and be helped ASAP. Although one problem is that it is a small store and most of the time we have been understaffed, unable to help the customers as much as we needed to, but we try our best.

Progression is very slow at Wal-Mart, the benefits are awful. They want to get away with everything as cheaply as possible and it makes it harder to do your job when they cut so many corners to save some pennies.
Pros
Good job security if you're a good worker.
Cons
Heartless management.

Usually 7-8.5 hour shifts. Usually half hour lunch break and 1-2 15 minute breaks. These breaks were mandatory which could prove disruptive especially on more busy days.

Overall good place...coworkers were good to be around. Some advancement ops but very little training was provided. Would have been better if the training was better.

During my stay at Walmart, I've learned that there's always a way to keep yourself busy while adapting to routines. On an average day, working at the Drayton Valley Walmart, it can get busy enough to make the time pass. The Management there varies depending on the manager, though all show the best of intentions of giving the drive to all Associates. The Hardest part of the job was mostly the traveling between there and home. What I have enjoyed from working there were the benefits and the employee discounts.
Pros
Free occasional lunches
Cons
Scattered schedules, difficult to make a routine.

Typical retail stocking job. Pay increases are terrible, high turnover and very busy. Hours are great if you are working another job, too.

Pros

I liked coming into work everyday because I liked what I did as a Pantry worker (coolers/freezers and stocking food onto shelves) because I'm built for heavy lifting and I learned a lot from the whmis training. Management was great, always looked over the associates and kept us motivated for another day of work, and my co-workers were very friendly towards everyone they came across.
Pros
3 breaks for an 8hr day
Cons
short breaks
