I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (more than an year)Pros
They pay a little higher then minimum wage, even if it's your first job. For the first three months, hours are awesome, depending on who you're with, training is good. Friendly co-workers who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and make sure you know what you're doing. CSM's are the only management who really care about the workers. They will stick up for you if there's a problem with a customer. Since it's busy, there's always something to do. Good breaks. Some of the customers are really easy to talk too and confidence building.Cons
-After you get through the 3 month probation, hours start going downhill.
-No hours near Christmas.
-Hard to grow within the company.
-A lot is expected from you.
-Some of the workers take advantage of the hard working ones. If you're hard working, prepare to deal with all the customers in express while the others pretend they're not paying attention.
-The pressure to get a Walmart master card is stressful. Only a small commission. If you don't get one, don't expect to enjoy working there after a while since they will get on your case. Basically, they want you to pressure people into signing up.
-If you're working a closing shift, expect to never leave at 11 unless you're under 18 years of age. You may still be checking people out at 11:10 even after the announcement said they were closed 10 minutes ago.
-Sharing a locker with someone else.
-Lunch room has a really weird smell.
-Only one out of all the janitors do their job.
-Benefits are offered to full timers, which they no longer offer full time positions.
-Can only use your 10% discount card for yourself. Of course, no one really follows that rule but the fact that you can't help a family member save a small amount is ridiculous.
-Some customers act like they're better then everyone and will yell at you over a tomato.
-Management changes often, not really for the best.
-A lot of favouritism.Advice to ManagementAdvice
-Care more about your employees.
-Quit with the obvious favouritism.
-Give better hours.
-If you want your cashiers to sell walmart cards, actually have one to encourage us. It's very hypocritical that you all say what a great card it is yet won't have one yourself.
-Instead of walking around the store chatting away about nothing, it may be handy to come to the front and help out when it's short staffed.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
