It is Just a job. No equality and inclusion in reality. No appreciation. Not the best wins here. Color and connections help you grow without talent. Now work life balance. Overwork. Don’t expect you to take lunch breaks as a manager. You feel guilty if you take it.

Go to certain stores in the Calgary area and beyond you will find employees and managers from one minority group are being overrepresented. Unwilling to break the status quo, HR attempts to defend their position by saying some stores are in the type of demographic areas where candidates from other ethnicities are not available and, in reality, these associates often do not live even close to these stores.
Pros
Vacation time
Cons
Lack of recognition, expected to reply to work-related messages and calls from home

Being an assistant store manager has more cons then pros. You are expected to be there 24/7 to ensure your business is in order. You often left to figure out what needs to be done with little to no guidance.

They always hire and promise a career plan but it never happens. Toxic workplace with managers fighting against each other to keep their jobs. If you do not approve of the GM the group of managers bully you until you quit or they fire you. Almost every one goes on stress leave.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Bad scheduling, general managers are a joke.

Each store has good and bad things. It was great working at a store with a good team. Stores with not such a good team were tough. People a generally good but everything depends on what your store manager wants to do and their personality.
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
they ask you to do a year of nights

I've enjoyed my years at Walmart and have gained a lot of knowledge and experiences in regards to retail, customer service and managing a store. I've learned about all aspects store operations such as compliance, safety, food safety, inventory management, managing associates, customer service and merchandising. I enjoy the fast pace and being a leader, as well as mentoring and helping others reach their potential. There are challenges to being a manager in retail such as difficult customers and and conflict resolution, however learning from each different situation has helped me develop as an assistant manager.
Pros
Great benefits and incentives
Cons
No guaranteed transfers

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.

Worked for the company for 18 years. 11 in Management roles. It used to be about the people. The culture changed, and was now about scorecards and sales. Didn't matter what we did, it was never good enough.

Not sure why this is required. The above questions pretty much sum up any information that I could be expected to provide you with. This section should be optional.

Prepare yourself for a chaotic environment, and learn how to quickly adapt to change. The salary and benefits are high in order to keep managers from leaving the company. Physically exhausting, as there never seems to be enough time, resources or wages to keep the store clean or well stocked. But a great place to hone your leadership skills. best of luck!
Pros
salary and benefits and profit sharing
Cons
long hours, fear and threatening your job routinely used to ensure work is completed

The job pays well and the benefits are good, however there is little work/life balance in the role. Frequently expected to work 12+ hour days or come in on days off to cover sick calls or risk "accountability". Was transferred from a store that was a 10 minute walk from my house to a store that was an hour and 15 minute drive away. I didn't have a car at the time and was given 2 days notice of the change. When I asked for more time before transferring I was told no because the other store needed me right away. Held weekly "Grassroots" meetings where associates are encouraged to voice concerns, however, the company would often ignore these concerns.
Pros
Benefits and pay
Cons
Little to no work/life balance, uncaring corporate employees

This company has changed alot over the past 10 years going from Family first mindset to Every Dollar counts the hours are demanding there arent many positions that allow you to have a consistant family life and the wage is the same as anywhere else Minimum Wage. Like in life managers are different and have different styles some are flexible and approachable and others are on a pedastool
