A challenging step. A great place to begin and work long term for those who are comfortable with the pay and benefits that Walmart offers. Management is overall great, listens and answers questions helpfully, manages vendors cordially

The management was good (at least in my department), the people I worked with were friendly and helpful. The days were very fast paced, especially during high volume times. I worked as both a Cashier and Customer Service. The hardest part of the job was dealing with really rude customers, there was only so much I could do even with calling the Manager. Another down fall is that when you're a cashier the tills are lower, so if you are taller like me (5'11) your back ends up hurting pretty easily from being a little hunched over all the time, and there is only so much you can do about it. It wasn't a huge deal for me, but for someone else it could be. The most enjoyable part of the job was definitely my co-workers. I still talk to some of my work friends from almost a year ago now. In my opinion, for how much you have to put up with and how hard you work, they don't pay enough. I was making $15.75, and yes that is over minimum wage, it isn't much. And with hours that were all over the place, it is hard to say if it would be a liveable wage. The benefits were nice, if you were able to meet the qualifications.

I dealt with a lot of different people at walmart. The thing with walmart is that considering it is such a big company you are treated more as just a number than a person

Just like every retail job the management is more concerned about the all mighty dollar and not the employees. The Walmart that I worked at removed 12 tills and put in self serve tills putting people out of their job.

I loved my job and enjoy working with customers. I take pride in what I did and my coworkers were like family. The downside is no work/family balance. Like 90/10. Lots of room for advancement. Huge mix of associates in age, race and religion. That is the greatest part! Hardest part is the politics....should be fair share of work and it hasn’t been. There should be accountability for this in all levels of responsibility. Too much favouritism!!!
Pros
They sell everything in one store and you get 10% discount on almost everything
Cons
Long hours and no work/life balance

I found the store management poorly trained in regards to interacting with personnel. This resulted in a lot of staff turnover and poor morale among employees
Pros

Typical days were busy, but fulfilling. I learned so much at this job and still use what I learned there to this day. Management was wonderful at helping me learn what I needed for this job and providing continuous support for my needs after I completed my training.
Pros
Fun, something new every day, lots of learning experience.
Cons
Long hours on your feet, typical customer service problems.

In a typical day of work it can go very well or something could go wrong. I have learned how to price match and fix prices, learn all the produce codes. Management always have their work cut out for them but they put in their all to make sure everyone is happy and okay. Management is always there if someone needs to talk and they always have respect for their employees. The hardest part of the job i think is when it becomes really busy and a customer grabs something that doesn't have a tag and all the supervisors are busy at the time, but we always have ways to figure it out.
Pros
we have treat days if we go accident free for certain amount of day
Cons
stressful some days

Working at wal-mart is what you expect to find at a retail store with average pay and average hours and with a constant influx of new workers and management with various types of competency and varying degree's of customers. Overall a good learning experience and an excellent place to develop social skills.
Pros
Free events, employee discounts
Cons
changing coworkers, unstable customers, pay

Avoid if possible, money is decent but the work environment was incredibly negative due to employees as management. They cared more about selling Walmart mastercards, than providing satisfactory customer service.
Pros

Cons

Work was based around Customer service and stocking inventory on shelves and providing product knowledge to customers. I learned patience with this job. Ultimately a great place to work based on the fact that there was always something to do. Work was never boring. The hardest part of the job would have to be the difficult customers, but as long as you knew how to diffuse a difficult situation then it was overall good.
Pros
Fun and friendly environment
Cons
low wage

It was very obvious you are just a worker, some of the managers are really great but you can tell they are unhappy as well. Horrible pay. Not even living wage.
