If you have left last resort to work then only choose walmart otherwise it is not at all a good place to work They pay very less wages and blood sucking work will burden your shoulder always and forever not a single day will go by when you will have a relaxed day no appreciation And management will not let you grow in your field at all
I enjoyed the people I was given occasion to work with, unfortunately there was little actual support or sympathy from upper management If you can hold your own and willing to play the favorites game it's a good place ( management opportunities ) ( Double standards ). people care about you. Over all a great experience. some negatives but well worth the time I spent there.
Benefits, other employees, Training. opportunity to move and grow
Long weeks. 8 to 9 days in a row, days off usually split, some management staff can make experience negative ( double standards )
Very stressful environment. Most time expectation is unrealistic given the limited resources. Great place for people without university education. However, if you are a graduate from a college or University you will be disappointed.
Good work life balance
Low rate of pay
A lot of management is hired from outside of walmart and have no idea what there doing with limited good training for the actual job before hand. Expectation also vary from store. I enjoyed my job till the store manager changed and the store dynamic changed a lot.
Good hours, decent pay
To be honest, I'm leaving on fairly bad terms. I really like most of my coworkers, and much of my management team. I don't like my store manager, whom has decided that because he personally dislikes me, he needs to remove me from my job and gift the position to someone he does like. The story is a long one, but would only be anonymously well-backed by many coworkers, over the last 14 months or so. I'm sure this recent experience is tainting my review a little, but I just can't help it right now. Walmart has a bad morale right now as they have tried to restructure the way they do things, and it just isn't working out the way it was expected. I have to admit, begrudgingly, that Walmart has kept me going for the last four years or so, but through a couple of life altering experiences, they just didn't stand behind me the way I had hoped.
The people are reasonably nice, and there are lots of opportunities to begin moving up.
If you don't drink the blue Kool-aid, you can only go up so far.
Help us improve!
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
Starting out, I was a cashier, not wanting to keep my job.Slowly I started to work around and advance throughout the company, working as a CSM, OTC Manager and ending up as a Support Manager on nightshift.Though I was working towards Assistant Manager, inline with a promotion from the district manager. I ended up parting ways for a continuing education course.
without a doubt the worst job i have ever worked. Was promoted to Support Manager within months but came to realise its all politics. Management brings in people from different countries to work as management for cheap and with no experience. Extremely racist if you are not one of their own. Would stay away from this horrible place.
Not a bad place to work if you're just looking for a pay check. There's a lot of unnecessary drama but I'm sure that's everywhere. The biggest issue I have found working here is the lack of accountability for associates who do not perform at Walmart company standards. You end up with unmotivated associates who feel unappreciated because they do more work than others and management does not care.
We have a lot of potlucks, Plenty of opportunity for overtime, It is difficult to be fired once you pass the probation period.
started as truck unloder and in three short years made it all the way to support manager.its nice when the company helps you achieve your goals.the managers I worked with were all very hands on.
Staff was nice but very negative. Management was decent for the most part but was hit or miss. Had one manager that I would go work for in a heart beat. Also had some very poor manager's that did not work out well.
Kind staff, good training.
compare to superstore its way better. i worked in both companies, Walmart is way better in many ways. these people at walmart concentrate on policies which are made for customers. but i dont like the pay rate for mid level management. superstore is better in paying managerial positions. actually way better. support manager or department manger in walmart is mid level management position. and pay rate is about 13 per hour. in superstore its 45000 per year for department manager.
Working at Walmart was a great experience because i meet a lot of different people from different walks of life. Its a challenging job as i like challenges. it also help me to improve on my customer service experiences.
Meeting new people every day
As a place to work in general my experience with Walmart has been a good one. That is until recently. Now I find myself looking for another place to work which will better relate to my family needs as new management that has come into that store is not very concerned about his employee's family welfare. The store I worked last at has become a very stressful environment compared to the other locations I have worked in. They do however have a worthwhile benefit package and 3 kinds of profit sharing available.
Excellent benefits, great company, advancement opportunities
Individual store managers may not identify with you
Great for young person as entry level management. Hard work and your immediate management will make or break this position for employee. Culture on paper is great but reality in workplace is not the same. With proper support to advance you by management could be a great position but due to shortage of takers you may be stuck in position for years.
Lots of hours available for this position
Long road for advancement
