You have not worked retail until you have worked at Walmart! I learned so much while employed there and some skills to this day I still use. They offer great training and possibility for advancement if you are willing to put in the work.

I liked the pay. I did not however like the managers. They were very strict and hard to make sense of. They did not let you take time off when really needed. And I got told off for doing a good job.

Culture is not good. People that's been there for a long time don't like following rules, as a new manager, it was hard enough to adjust with little training plus the attitude of people makes it harder. Higher management are the hardest people to follow rules, they break rules, specially safety, and they are setting a bad example. The most enjoyable part is working with some people that really likes you.

Walmart seems to have great policies to help employees feel secure in the workplace, however they are not always enforced unless you complain to HR. Management tend to power trip and even give corrective actions in front of customers! Not very professional.

The is fun if you make it fun, i learnt a lot about handling money and customer service. The hardest part about the job is trying to sell the master cards to customers. The most fun part is meeting new people.

I worked in the dairy section so I mostly was doing my own thing in this section. I would stock the shelves and use a forklift to transport the merchandise.

Was a great company and felt I could make a difference. Transfered to Ft Mac upon a promotion. Was great till they brought in a new store manager who liked to threaten jobs over positive affirmation to get results. Broke all rules in regards to stocking, rotating and saftey practices. Many racial slurs behing office doors. And a overzealous jealousy toward any other staff and management appreciated more by the staff. What went from a dream job making it a better place. Became its own reflection of the video "Walmart High Cost of Low prices" What was a dream became a nightmare, very sad time in my life.
Pros
Decent medical/dental
Cons
Tyranical co and store managers with constant verbal abuse and job threats, long hrs, Productivity over saftey, Racist remarks, poor stock rotation.

I enjoyed my job as it carried out a lot of responsibilities and met many deadlines. Working alone and as a team taught many skills that I will be able to apply to jobs in the future.

A lot of improvements must be done, People who works here sometimes don't get enough training. It is a fun workplace because of the people, but some of the employees are only trying to be here for hours and not to work, which saddens me before, because the company is paying them, but they barely work. For me, they should have a Stern but Firm management, so their reputation can improve.
Pros
You can always have overtime
Cons
Don't give not enough training to their employees

Managers are very personable. Coworkers are very team oriented and are willing to help. Met very cool people who became close friends. They are willing to teach train you and give chances of advancement.

fun working environment with friendly and supportive staff. the most enjoyable part of the job was the the team work and connections each and every employee has with each other.Personally i enjoyed working alongside smart, energetic and innovative young individuals and learning from them. there was a lot of variety in what i did each day, ranging from monotonous tasks to training new hires ,supervising busy font end department with limited or fewer staffs , covering for 2-3 staffs at times that were really challenging and exciting at times
