    Pros

    Regardless of what department you are in, it is a great place to learn how to communicate internally and externally to get the right message across and support for your initiative. Most employees are friendly,helpful and supportive when you approach for help.

    Huge behemoth to navigate and find the right person.

    Pros

    It's a pay for now.

    Cons

    Duty managers hide in back offices , rarely are they out on the floor . CSM's are young and very immature. Greeters are gone and everyone is stealing at all the Walmarts !

    Advice to Management

    Make yourself visible ,get out on the floor ,greet the customers ,say hello to employees

    Pros

    Really easy. Everyone learns it quick. Great for students.

    Cons

    Everything becomes repetitive and boring after a few months. Never get full 8 hour shifts as the photo lab gets the smallest budget out of all the other departments.

    Pros

    -10% discount
    -nice coworkers (for the most part)
    -close proximity to my house

    Cons

    -When I was hired I was promised 20-25hrs/ week as part time. They gave me that for 3-4 weeks and then dropped me down to 12 hrs.
    -The image Walmart portrays to the customer couldn't be farther from the truth.
    -In reality they treat their employees very poorly. I was given a poor review because I didn't pressure customers into
    -Management takes home huge bonuses yet they have no problem making people live off 12 hrs a week. They're attitude is "if you don't like it there's the door".
    -No benefits
    -No work life balance (they would schedule me until 11pm and then I would have to be in at 7am the next day)

    I know this review sounds harsh, but the truth is I didn't feel appreciated at all when I worked there. I was a very hard worker that always took great pride in my job. I felt it was an unequal relationship- Walmart expected you to bend over backwards for them but they treated you like you were dispensable. The turnover there speaks for itself, and when you go into a store you can feel the low morale and sadness.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter, cultivate the relationship you have with them and you will get so much back. Follow your own corporate belief of "respect for the individual"…focus more on the people and less on profits. All Walmart cares about is $$$, they really need to find a balance.

  9. Definitely glad I don't work there anymore.

    Dealing with a joke of a management team.

    Wouldn't make a difference no matter what I say.

    Pros

    Relatively easy job with opportunities to learn a lot of different things with some prospect for advancement.

    Cons

    Varied hours. Full time can get as little as 28 hours per week in an effort to save the company money.

    Advice to Management

    Quit cutting employee hours to save money and concentrate on having enough staff on hand to get the stock to the floor where it will actually be available for customers to purchase.

  11. If you are desperate maybe. You don't want to work there. Keep looking for something else

    Pros

    Most of the people you work with are great. The pay might be a bit above average and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Your life and family mean nothing. It all about the money But not for associates. Part time hours, but you are expected to have open availability. This make it difficult to have another job to help pay the bills. There is regular intimidation and bullying by manager.Training is non existent. You are just thrown into the deep end. In many case you are setup to fail and then blamed for it. At least in the Guelph store. Your experience depends on the management in store

    Advice to Management

    Have respect for your employees. They are the ones who make you your big bonus in April. I don`t think this is what Sam Walton envisioned for the store he started.
