I worked at the Walmart Super Store I had enjoyed myself working in this face pace environment. Excellent help from team members and management for training at service at Customer Service They were knowledgeable and efficient and will always find an answer for you.
When I started at Walmart I was welcomed with open arms and happy faces which really helped me because I was a shy kid. However...after 2 years it became clear that the store beginning to get rough. They removed express lanes with self checkouts to seem more modern but very little amounts of customers went and used them creating outrageous pile ups. But Walmart has taught me many things -Cashiering -How to better talk with people - Making prints and canvases.
11-7 5days ..2 day off together management was good but changed to often on most part culture was good learned how to bin and pick, stock properly rotate , do not over stock, create tags with the jeani gun. uses jacks and move skids safley
on the most part a good place to work
a lot of people cut shifts so that double our work load, more staff is needed
What can I say? It not what you would want to do for a living, and it seemed like nobody there did either. Poor culture, poor pay, poor management. There might be some good people in it but that doesn't make it worth while. I tried my best to improve what I could with my limited power and was always at fault for being unable to fix the problem that is walmarts systems. It seemed like people would fail upwards to management and blame their team for a broken system.
work like a slave completed by slave wages and you wait 1 year for benefits. i learned that people are not of "Great Value" as employees rather treated as commodities.Management non existent workplace culture? go to see yogurt for culture.hardest part of the job slackers take advantage of people with strong work ethic.most enjoyable helping customers who "truly" appreciate associates
grim grimmer grimmest
I enjoyed helping the customers find what they were looking for. The other parts of the job became more of a challenge. I would have to run back and forth from one part of the store to another part to help customers when they needed help. There was a lot of team work, and we all worked well together to get the job done. I learned to do price changes and worked on cash when needed. Management would give us directions on what needed to be done. I enjoyed working with the staff and the customers.
some free lunches
not enough help
People are fun to work with my dept. was automotive and I had a great time changing tires and Oil.I learned lot about the different ways to do things and the different people I had as customers.
straight day shift
some of the Irate customers and how they would blindside the Managers to get what they wanted
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Walmart?
For me, Walmart is like family. Most of the employees have been there for a long time. There is a rapport between the workers and management. The only bad thing is the pay is pretty low and there are no health or pension benefits
no benefits, low pay
I see a lot of the reviews stating the management was very helpful . I completely disagree with that . Like one review said ,they are never around when you need them . I think the only way things get done are the cooperation among the employees . they have to in general figure things out for themselves. As for good pay , what planet are you from ? They only hire part time so they don't have to pay any benefits and the miniscule pay raises they hand out each year are a laugh .
mostly good people to work with as we were all in the same boat
Bad communication with management, no give and take at all . If you don't like something theres the door
Very diverse customer base which allows for growth in dealing with people and developing people skills. Due to the pace of the business it makes other similar jobs seem easy. Work life balance as a member of management is not so good as the expectation is that the business comes first.
It was a very hard job for someone my age and over weight after spending 12 years long hauling. Instead of driving the truck I was now unloading 53 foot trailers by hand one box at a time. They say max 50 lbs but some weighed up to 150lbs. after that was done and everything was stacked on pallets ( usually 12 feet high) according to department we used hand pallet jacks to pull them out to each dept. for the night shift to stock shelves. I learned never to give up and if I just kept going I would not only get through my shift but lost 65lbs. What I enjoyed most was my co-workers, most 25 years younger than me, they never treated me like they thought I couldn't do the job. And as far as I know, I still hold the record at Westbank WalMart for unloading a trailer the fastest.
my co workers
wage. walmart can afford to pay better and hire full time with benifits
I worked in the Westbank Wal-Mart 1093 for 2 years, I had a great time with my co-workers, the best part of working there was the flexible hours and knowing that the people you worked with actually cared about you, everyone there was caring and compassionate, although the downfall to working there was that it was almost run like a high school, very 'clicky'. but an over-all great place to work. I definitely recommend it for anyone to have as their first job or even just for something to do if you don't need to work.
long lunch hors, flexible hours, great people.
