I have been working at WalMart Canada full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The culture, originally established by Sam Walton, is still in effect today and a huge part of the reason that Walmart is a good company to work for.

Cons

There is a lack of positive and helpful response from category managers and modular planners in Home Office. When one is striving for excellence and attempting to provide the best customer shopping experience possible, our hands are tied when we are receiving too much/not enough product or the wrong items for our community: We are then spending far too time on the correction of errors that are beyond our control.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen, respect and respond to enquiries and requests for changes to product types and quantities being sent to stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat associates with respect and explain why you want your associates to do desired tasks instead of using the "because I said so" mentality.
