    I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Didn't have a boss standing over my shoulder watching all the time. Enjoyed working with my co-workers. My scheduled time to work were good hours. I enjoyed working with the customers always.

    Cons

    Staff managers were not very professional when discussing problems such as my illness getting worse and missing days. There was always 2 of them to 1 of me and they were unkind, inappropriate on some subjects and didn't care at all about me as a person.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional, behave humanely when a person is having problems and stop the inappropriate remarks that are none of your business.

    Hours,employees lack in client care when it comes to costumer service.

    We need to hire more client service oriented people that do not act as brainless people in the return area ,and Porcha as she gave her name. They make me sick!

    I have been working at WalMart Canada (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, co workers, discount, prices, customers

    Cons

    Not enough wage increase after an evaluation, giving your employees a 40 cent raise is not giving them the world and it is not coming out of the managers pocket, too much of a work load for what you get paid, One of the core beliefs is respect for the individual and the store that I work at totally lacks this.

    Advice to Management

    Rate your employees for what they do, not for the little things they missed one day, I do my day in the life everyday and just because I missed doing a couple things a couple of times I got a low score on my eval. This is unfair and too the point that I feel like I am being bullied, The moral is very low and it will go even lower if they continue to give their employees low evaluations.
