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

    Pros

    - Made great friends
    - Learned new customer service skills

    Cons

    - Management is hateful, spiteful, does not care about you. Will yell at you and belittle you in front of customers, accuse you of lying, coach you for things you didn't do, guilt trip you, schedule you outside of your available hours (especially as a student).
    - Customers see you as the lowest of the low. Assume you are worthless because you work for this company.
    - Store is drab and dreary, it's heartbreaking just walking inside. Even now, and I don't even work there anymore. I can feel the misery.
    - Very bad work/life balance, especially for part-timers who WILL work every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Missed out on a lot of fun things that friends were doing because I had to work until 11:00 PM or later.
    - Management wants you to put Walmart above everything else in your life. Family, friends, and school- does not matter because Walmart should be your #1.
    - New employees are hired at a higher wage than people who had been working there for 10 years. (I worked there for four years and was making $10.55, new employees were being hired at over $11)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are people. Treat us as such. You so completely destroyed my self esteem after four years at this company that I was having breakdowns before my shifts and had a difficult time adjusting in my new job where people actually trusted and respected me.
