coworkers helped out a lot on the first couple weeks that i had became a dep manager and helped me get on the right track also the management was supporting and understanding
This company holds a morning meeting in which they brag about the millions of dollars they are making, all while paying you minimum wage & expecting perfect work. After a year of work they offer you a 12 Cent raise. As if that will help even remotely. This company is known for buying from manufacturers who promote child labour. I cannot condone that. No longer buy from there, would never re-apply. Costco pays WAY better and theres actual room for advancing your salary, so i would say skip the bull and go straight for the money.
a weak 10% discount
12 cent raise.
Do not consider if you're coming out of gr.12, Only consider if you're in high school, people are trying to retire from this place and is upsetting to see them so trapped by this companies terrible benefits, and wages.
They make you do other peoples jobs
a typical day would be working from 8-4 helping costumers, putting out games, movies, and other stock. I learned how to talk to costumers set up tvs and about tvs. management was good always treated me like another person never made you feel lower than anybody always there if you had a question and answered it to there best abilities. co-workers were good worked well with me and I workered with them. if one couldn't do something tried to do the best to help them out. working till I didn't really like standing around in the same spot getting a lot of manuel work. it was hard to come upon but when theyd ask me id do it.
getting in long hours
not alot of work
Lots of customer service, even more working freight, and dealing with a ton of different managers. I learned a great amount of customer service. Management is fairly poor and tiresome to deal with. Co workers can be great but also can be very bothersome. The job is beyond easy in every aspect.
My typical day at work would, to start i would stock items that have been returned or out of place. Look at that days goals to be completed. help any customers find things. Sometimes look after automotive and hardware while looking after my own section. Keep workplace neat and clean.I learned how to run the till at my section. how to sell WIN card, hunting licenses, fishing licenses, and hunting tags. Also learned how to mix paint in hardware.The management was pretty friendly. The only Problem was that they kept changing the manger for sporting goods and became a little confusing. Sometimes the mangers didn't understand the requirements they set for the employees by asking to much of them.I my co-workers were all pretty friendly, and very helpful in training me during my first two weeks till the end of my employment there. Some employees just didn't care about the work they were putting in there.the hardest thing part of my job was trying to train a employee who didn't speak English. i would tell him to do something and asked him if he understood me,he would say yes. but he would do it wrong. that was super annoying.The part i enjoyed most about work was the work. I enjoying working, it balances my mood out. I also liked the mangers and my co-workers.
1 hour long lunches, don't care if employees show up for work, short staffed
Wal-Mart was an excellent place to work while in school. I was uble to get an understanding about how to balance work life and home life prior to starting my next career opportunity.I really enjoyed my time with Wal-Mart.
flexible hours for school
no cons to that i can think of
