    I have been working at WalMart Canada full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people work there. Some good management. 10% discount. Job security if you are a associate but not as management

    Cons

    Not enough pay. No advancement unless you are female. WIR is what they care about. Low budgets for payroll and in achievable sales budget so they don't have to pay out bonus to management and associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember humans work for you. They need good wages help them not verbally direct them. More full time positions 40% is not good. Forget WIR as you can see promoting people because of gender is the same as not hiring because of gender. Promote on capability and capacity. You are going to continue losing people

    Pros

    Great place to start a managers career. They will give you a chance to move up.

    Cons

    The job is a lifestyle, no real balance of work life, lots of divorces for long term employees do to job hours. Not for lone wolfs, socialization is key to move up in the company,not how hard you work. If management you are not Human, and can not have feelings all activities are black and white no shades of gray.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to retain good workers, there is to high of a turnover 46% at most locations, so you are ending up with just body's. Properly fill department , the business will prosper for it.
