    Pros

    Lots of learning opportunities, leadership development, people management, retail training is also provided to new hires for 4 weeks. And also very diverse culture

    Being a corporation there is a Lot of red tape in the company, everything is overly complexed and makes the job difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Any new programs should not be designed in a office. Should be designed at a store/field

    I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Didn't have a boss standing over my shoulder watching all the time. Enjoyed working with my co-workers. My scheduled time to work were good hours. I enjoyed working with the customers always.

    Cons

    Staff managers were not very professional when discussing problems such as my illness getting worse and missing days. There was always 2 of them to 1 of me and they were unkind, inappropriate on some subjects and didn't care at all about me as a person.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, behave humanely when a person is having problems and stop the inappropriate remarks that are none of your business.

    I have been working at WalMart Canada part-time

    Pros

    Coworkers-easy to make friends 10% discount Decent pay for part time Easy work Meeting nice new people and chatting Breaks given fairly

    Cons

    The hours are inconsistent one week you can have 20-25 hours then the next you have 12 . Management are rude to employees. Not enough staff to cover departments and cash. Customers can be rude and disrespectful. Blamed for things that aren't your fault. Price matching should have its own line. The job is repetitive and you stand for long periods of time. Doctors note needed for everything. Calling in sick is a hassle. Pushing the MasterCard is really annoying not only for us but for the customers who constantly says no. If you don't get enough you get in trouble. They don't take into consideration your outside life, if you need a day off say for school, you may or may not get that day off. Your time off requests must be in 3 weeks prior and still they will schedule you for those days.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting associates to push the MasterCard on customers that generally already have / do not want. Provide more training to other managers in the store to treat us with respect and don't talk down to us. And take into consideration our scheduling and give consistent hours.
