Constant customer service fast paced environment friendly employees working alone is the hardest part enjoyable part is when customers are satisfied with there product and service.
get one hour lunch break depending on how long the shift is
too much work for one person to handle
The worst job I have ever done. Work condition is dirty, customer's cars are beyond filthy, Management is absurd and slow. They keep changing the schedule whenever they want. They think technician is expendable and replaceable. They just don't care. The wage is extremely low which is as same as greeters in front of the door. Just walk away is the best advice I can give.
I have been away for a while (vacation) and they (management) and the manager still accommodated me and gave a spot anytime I will work again with them.
Working at Walmarts Tire and Lube Express was not a fun place to be, working here meant that you had to apologize to customers constantly for not being able to work on their vehicles. Two workers had to be certified to actually work on the vehicles and one worker was always certified while the other one was never.
I am proud to be part of the PhotoLab team in Walmart. I would say they are fun to work with. Our job and task in the Photolab is stressfull but when you are working with a great team it will make the job lighter. We do a great job in our work and what is best in our team is that we help each other.
I don't know about other Walmarts, but when I worked in Oshawa was when I had my first, and best job experiences. My manager was excellent and thoroughly knowledgeable about camera's, products and the photolab, so it made the position incredibly easy to learn. Being inside the electronics department as well gave me a thorough understanding on how to work there as well. I loved working with the printer the most, especially when it needed to be cleaned and fixed. The photolab was definitely my favourite job.
Discounts and excellent managers/co-workers
We worked with outside companies that were very harsh with us
My typical day at work is that I helped people if they needed. The management there are pretty nice, loved working with them as well as my co-workers, they assist whenever it is needed. There was not really any hardest part of the job, but there were issues with the machine which backed us up that is about it. I enjoyed working with everyone, and loved the job.
Out of the four full time ladies in the lab, I am the only one who does the stocking for our department, and for batteries. Time management is very important to succeed, as I am alone most of the time so I have to do what I can in the lab while I am alone, so that when coverage comes I can go and do my floor work. Marking off merchandise on a truck report to ensure we get what we are supposed to, going back to upc/invoicing if there is mistakes. Binning any overstock that I might have. I don't get paid anything extra for doing the stock work, which is what I hate the most. What I do enjoy, is the fact that I get to be the first one who sees the new cameras we get. Learning how to set modulars, having appropriate signage throughout the departments is crucial. Communication has really diminished between coworkers, and in the lab you need to communicate. So many customers come and go, some have special requests such as slide orders or negative orders and some are very picky with what they want. If it's due for a certain time, but what they want isn't written down well they of course get upset. There is also alot of maintenance that had to be learned. Changing all of the chemical in the main printer, and the film processor, changing paper magazines, running control strips, how to break into a film canister if needed, changing ribbon/paper on the kiosks. There is alot to this job, and I get paid the least out of all the girls and I don't feel that is fair to me, especially when I am the only one working stock for photolab and batteries. It's really hard to think of absolutely everything, - more...
Getting to see the beautiful pictures people take on their travels!
Its a pretty easy job, low impact and plenty of sitting time. it was poorly managed with its personnel. Felt disposable and under appreciated. Coworkers were great, but a little gossipy Loved working in an artistic environment.
lots of breaks
inconsistent hours, little pay, no appreciation
allot of people that work there are nice, smart and professional but some of management have allot of ego problems and are rude to both customers and associates.
all brakes given and good stepping stone for a future better job
rude, unforgiving, dead end.
