Wal-Mart today!

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I have been working at WalMart Canada full-time for more than a year

ProsSome very good people working for them, you create some good friendships

ConsOther than friendships this company is all over the place, can't quite get it right with how they handle freight, associates etc....

Advice to Senior ManagementListen, follow-up. If you want it done right maybe show everyone how to do it not just expect them to do it without proper training. There is a lot of double standards going on, Management expects the rules to be followed but they are not following them.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Cashier

Walmart Cashier (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I worked at WalMart Canada part-time for less than a year

ProsIn the first few days they provide good training. You go through all these computer based lessons and there was little supervision. You can get 10% off when you buy things from Walmart as an employee. Most employees are amiable. Very easy to get promoted, if you work there for many months it is likely that you'll become a supervisor if you do your job well.

ConsUsually the store is very busy, as a cashier you have to scan items continuously and you must maintain a certain minimum scannings per hour. They put pressure on you to get people to sign up for a Walmart Mastercard. It is not a bad card, it's just I dislike Walmart honouring those who get the most number of people for signing up by deceiving or putting excessive pressure on customers. There was this old man working at Walmart who would lie to customers. He asks customers if they want to save $20 dollars on their current purchase, and then ask for their identification to sign them up without the customers knowing that they must sign up for the credit card to get $20 in the FUTURE if they get approved and sign up for ebills.

Advice to Senior ManagementWalmart should enforce malpractice in terms of advertising credit cards.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

It was an okay experience

Cashier (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I worked at WalMart Canada part-time for less than a year

ProsGreat for meeting new people, easy tasks, requires no experience, and employee discount. It was an easy commute because I lived near by, and served great as a part time job for high schoolers.

ConsHIgh turnover rate for a reason, most coworkers are unmotivated and not easy to work with. Little to no contact with management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
