    Pros

    Getting job is easy.
    Flexible schedule.
    Discount on purchases from walmart.
    You can take leave without informing and they are going to arrange another person in place of you. :-)

    Cons

    No concept of managment.
    Never make an employee permanent even after probationary period.
    No value for good work and no fine or coaching for bad work. If you can make them fool, you are gold.
    Unlimited work for entire shift hours, no slow time, always speed. And if you have less work, you cant get it easy because they are going to make sure next time you have so much work you cant breath during shift...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont give supervisors all authority.
    Make employee permanent after probationary period, atleast full time employees who work hard daily.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen, 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can be very challenging. They only care about getting stuff done regardless of the obstacles in the way. They are very biased to certain workers. They like to dump endless amounts of work on employees while they sit in their office all day and talk amongst themselves.
