    I have been working at WalMart Canada part-time

    Pros

    This is a good place to begin working and gain experience related to retail and cash handling.

    Cons

    There are minimal opportunities for advancement and they are mostly given based on popularity with the managers (how often one sucks up to them). Additionally, Walmart puts in minimal effort in order to reduce harassment issues even if another associate is the root of the issue and even if solid evidence is presented. Hard work is hardly acknowledged here. Managers will throw their associates under the bus to save their skin (I have seen it happen quite a few number of times, unfortunately).

    Advice to Management

    It is ok to show your associates that you genuinely care about them; contrary to what managers believe, it will make them continue to work harder.

    I have been working at WalMart Canada part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of hours, and proper amount of breaks.

    Cons

    Dress code constantly changes and we are expected to buy new attire every time, poor communication with management, weird ruthless customers, constant trouble when wanting to take days off for school functions, and little to no benefits or rewards even for full time associates.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees instead of sitting in your office, try to make a schedule that makes the majority of people happy, accept the fact that people have lives outside of Wal-Mart, and pick a dress code and stick with it.

    I worked at WalMart Canada full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was close to home, friends/family also worked there. I have to write twenty words here but just writing those 10 was a stretch.

    Cons

    Terrible management, associates quitting left and right, under paid, over worked, having to do our job along with part of the day crews job because they were useless.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in actual managers. Don't select an employee, give them some papers to read and call them management with no training.
