If you don't like standing around waiting for work, like a cashier or fast food. I suggest Walmart to everyone. Just remember there's always stuff to do!!

Worked at 2 locations. The first and the second were so different. Was almost as though I worked for 2 different company's. The first in Slave Lake was great. Than the 2nd in Nanaimo was horrible. Night to day difference.

In Brooks, Alberta I was one of the employees that was there from the beginning of the store build and one of the originals. I was a sales associate, to a cashier. Than I moved to Slave Lake, Alberta and started as a cashier than went to Department Manager. Than I put in a transfer to Medicine Hat, Alberta and went down to being a Part-Time sales associate because there was no positions available at that time.
Pros
theme days such as pajama day, fun managment
Cons
differences between employees but we got over it and moved on

The culture in this company was mind-blowing. Every morning, all of the workers get together and chant positive affirmations for the day. I was there for months and loved every minute of it. I would love to return but I moved to Kelowna. Hopefully, the one here will be just as great culturally.
Pros
great benefits, deals, pay rate and scheduling
Cons
seems like a long day

Wal-Mart is like a giant family. I really enjoy working with everyone. Scheduling is a little crazy but other than that I don’t have a lot of issues with anything there.

I enjoyed working at Walmart. Most of my fellow employees were pretty great to work with. It was busy most of the time, which helped the time go by quickly.

I really learned a lot and enjoyed my time there. I worked as a cashier during busy hours and it worked well around my young daughter. They wanted to keep me around for much longer but I had to move to Kelowna with my partner. I really loved the job culture because every morning they would shout out encouragements and things like that. Would love to return and work there again.

The job I had at Walmart was the worst one I have ever had in my life. Management are backstabbers and Walmart HR are just as bad.The staff for the most part were great, easy to work with, but only 1 manager I worked with was decent. The rest either didn't care, or treated you like cr*p rather pick bottles then work there ever again.

Every day start of shift I had to grab a radio, scanner, printer, and keys for my area. Then I would have to keep inventory count on the jewelry in my area, then I would start a planogram. With that I learned how to read planograms and I also learned till work, scanners and printers. Management was really poor do to the fact that it was someone in management was harassing me and other co-workers. I didn't have the chance to meet much of me co-workers but the ones I meet were great. hardest part working there was actually talking to management about the problems I was having but the most enjoyable part was giving customer serves.
Pros
Made friends
Cons
poor pay

As a part-timer, evening and weekends are generally busy with lots of things to do and lots of options and ways to go about them. Working here is very team-oriented. There's always somebody in the store to go to for questions. I've learned how to better work with people in different context versus my previous jobs, I've also learned how to better prioritize. Often you have to compromise priorities with time-management in order to get everything done. The management team is excellent. Each of them knows their end of things very well and know what needs to be done. The management schedule is usually organized in a way that, I find, compliments each of them and allows for better productivity, despite our lack of staff. Co-workers are usually enjoyable to be around and most of them know to leave their outside issues out of work and to be professional even when something happens at work they aren't happy with. The hardest part of my job is getting everything done in the amount of time I'm given. There is currently many department managers missing from our team. I have lots of extra duties and capabilities outside of my actual job description. This makes it hard to get my job done, but when people have a vast knowledge of how to do things- in ANY job- your employer and management will like you more. The most enjoyable part of my job is that I know my job well and I'm recognized for what I do. I'm treated with respect. Many of the people I talk to regularly here are easygoing and friendly for the most part.
Pros
pot lucks, bbqs, christmas party, always something to do, special events - ex, jeans friday, hat day, or costumes for halloween
Cons
short staffed, hard to get things done when it's busy, lack of proper training
