Store # 1137 management is highly disrespectful towards their associates.vl Using an aggressive tone which is borderline harassment. There is blatant favoritism within the department and your never supported rather the department constantly complains of dissatisfaction of performance even though work is complete. This is a working environment based on fear. recommend
There is no positives about this store
- disrespectful management, fearful work environment, constant pressure

Looking for employments I chose to try to learn Retail as a new direction to my skills. I was interesting to learn with very little direction so mistakes I made were quickly learned and not repeated. I found it easy to make friends and worked well with the team. This I felt was because of my time with the Cruise industry. As hours were cut I asked to be moved to Produce and learned hard work by lifting and moving items in and out of storage. It was a good place to work and the company treated me very well
New skills that are useful now
It was my first job. I started off in the seasonal side. But advanced passed that into more of a field that was recommended base off how I was performing. Which tells you that the employees look out for you even the fellow co-workers are there to be of service. As everyone is always looking to eat and walmart is there to provide for that.
Good work with good people.
There always a floor spill
Nice place with good people you can trust. Enjoyed me time here. If you are starting out of school or looking for employment while attending college, it is a great place to start. When there is a good Management team you couldn't ask for better. But unless you are short timing or Manager potential ensure you plan an alternate work.
Hours and expectations
You work hard and nobody cares if you are the only person on shift when there is normally three. Management is poor , they favour certain employees that don't do their job properly, maybe it is their relative or something like that. I can't stand how they hoot and holler about the sales at the morning meetings and clapping, the pay is not good and your hours are cut in January , part time that were working 20-25 hours will only get 12 hours and full time employees go from 37 hours to 28 hours. The only people that don't take less are all the assistant managers and the department managers and they actually don't do the work that keeps the store stocked. They don't tell you when you are hired that you will get less hours after Christmas. Most of the employees are immigrants and they are afraid to stand up for themselves and speak up about how they can't afford this loss of hours. The manager says this is all the budget allows,but she is trying to make the store look good for the home office and too bad if you don't like it. It is a very frustrating place to work and I hope my time will be short there.
Not enough hours
I learned how to think for myself, how to regulate tasks and how to lead a team mostly through my typical day being the "reliable one" of my department. Management is mostly on the level, but as always favouritism is a problem and some managers and associates were too close and gained too many benefits from such relationships. Furthermore managers often showed themselves to be ineffective at even basic things such as maintaining the schedules and dealing with irate customers, often pawning off those management duties in low-rung associates. That said, the best part of the job was the ground-level staff, they are kind and welcoming and the job itself was quite simple, if unfulfilling.
Management particularly upper management being ineffective
A typical day at work is too help the customer find what they need, making sure to upkeep on the merchandise on the shelves, and filing reports to the unloading crew if stock is running low. Learned about product display techniques like "facing". Management was very professional and nice. Co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was working too many days in a row on school days. The most enjoyable part was helping customers.
Helping Customers, Co-Workers.
Working too much on school days.
A typical day at work is customer service; helping customers find what they need. Also, stocking and zone - making sure the departments are well-organized and clean; making sure all products go out onto the sales floor
