-corrupted - slow - no one knows how to do their jobs - scheduled till 10 because you're a student but being guilted into staying till 11because they have no one else to close electronics
Lots of employee spirit days, slow paced, nice breaks
Corrupt management, high turn around rate
This was a well managed and well organized Wal-Mart. As a first job it was a good introduction to the work force. Management I always felt was supportive for the most part and would help employees. They worked well to maintain employee morale and kept a far more positive feeling for many of their employees despite being Walmart and it having its rather poor reputation.
Always understaffed and underpaid Wal-Mart likes to keep you probationary for 9 months and work you like a dog. Even if you survive the probationary there is a list of things that can get an employee of any tenure fired instantly, but really should be wrist-slap situations.
Wal-Mart seems to like hiring ridiculously unexperienced managers/co-managers who don't care about their staff at all. To them, we are only numbers and they often say they can replace you at any time. Disrespectful, arrogant, won't listen to new ideas, always think they are right. The training is a complete joke, you are thrown in your department and told to "have fun". Management cannot merchandise for the life of them and they cannot make schedules that make any sense at all. The workload is huge and the consecutive work days are frequent because you know what? NOBODY wants to work for a tyrant. Wal-Mart is becoming the biggest joke in the world and to prove that point, they have to hire a third party company to take over their incompetence. DO NOT work for these people, they will suck you dry of all your energy then throw you away like a used tissue. Shame on you Wal-Mart
Progression is very slow at Wal-Mart, the benefits are awful. They want to get away with everything as cheaply as possible and it makes it harder to do your job when they cut so many corners to save some pennies.
Good job security if you're a good worker.
Was hired because of the experience electronics with the first 2 weeks of work was fine and after that everything went down hill really fast.After I was trained I would go into work and be told to go work in different department even though I was hired strictly for electronics. I worked with someone who knew nothing about electronics and worst is the wireless people. Wireless people would play on their cell phones directing staff what to do because they did not want to do anything in less it involved them making commission (no commission no work). Pretty much I was doing the wireless people job for them as they would not sell any of there own products that did not pay commission. Policy of Walmart is to allow people to steal right in front of you and your suppose to do nothing just leave them alone. Department managers (which are normal employees who get paid a few dollars more and have manager in their title but aren't real managers) would do nothing but have employees do their work, only would work when an actual manager was watching them. Was called in the office by an actual manager about once a week for different issues. Called in the office for doing the training modules because I did not tell one of the department managers I was doing them.Called in for asking for time off and other times for not listening to the useless department managers to go work in other departments or do their job for them so they look good in the eyes of the actually managers. Employees who worked there awhile would try to talk down to you even though they are 5 foot nothing and think they - more...
A typical day for me as an electronics associate included: stocking up merchandise in isles, maintaining cleanliness of my department, cashing out customers, processing photo orders, updating the movie MODS, selling Walmart Mastercards and grabbing the carts from outside when needed. Overall, a place to work for a student just to gather up some pocket change and gain some customer service experience.
Friendly co-workers, easy work
Managers have unrealistic expectations, sometimes unprofessional
Walmart for me was a good experience. I loved working there but the wage wasnt worth the hassle or torment that i endured. there were associates that were hired after I had worked there for three years making more than i was. when ever there was an increase in minimum wage the new associated getting hired would get the increase but no one else. so there is a bunch of associates working for less than minimum wage. they will not allow any flexibility (even though they tell you that they have flexible hours)
It was decent part-time work for a young person, but I don't recommend anyone seek a prolonged career in Walmart. I ended up working 30+ hours in a week plus volunteer work in other businesses in town, and Walmart hardly tried to accomodate the two days a week I asked for time off (even if I scheduled them off 3 weeks in advance).
Walmart was a great place to start into sales. I never really learned anything at Walmart because of the amount of IT knowledge I already had. I had to teach the staff, which I found enjoyable, because I was able to pass on the knowledge I had.
