    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Vancouver, BC (Canada)
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I worked at WalMart Canada full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    opportunities galore, Sam Walton story inspirational, respect for work/life balance (at my stores anyway) Can be great buy-in from associates/managers with profit sharing - if your store is qualifying. Great things to learn from long term associates and there are lots of them. Great participation in green initiatives - for a big company....sometimes the clout of a big company can matter and make a difference. The cheer is not that bad, and can be downright fun.

    Cons

    if you start low you stay low salary/wage wise. Still some very un-inspirational managers in the business. A little too much waste for most people's personal taste...all in the name of "fear of litigation" so the hungry and less privileged lose.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you lose great people when you stick to rules like - not promotable if you...eg: won't move, won't sign on to permanant overnight etc
    Not enough mentoring

    Pros

    Friendly people to work with! Great opportunity for promotion within management. Enjoyed the relocating, a great experience for me and my family

    Cons

    Not as much family time as we would like. Hours can be long sometimes especially during holidays, inventory and home office visits.
