    Pros

    - great 'first' job
    - meet new people
    - gain customer service experience

    Cons

    - barely any shifts
    - no room to grow in company
    - managers & above really don't care.

    Advice to Management

    The Walmart MasterCard may be beneficial to the company however management puts their employees through constant stress over it. A lot of people I worked with were getting threats from managers about losing their job if they didn't get a certain number of applicants, and as cashiers we get some really angry customers for constantly pushing so from both ends of the job it's emotionally draining. A lot of people I worked with complained about breaking down before and during their work shift.

    Pros

    Great History and culture that produced great leaders for people to look up to. World class organization with significant room for growth if you are focused and do a great job.

    Cons

    New COO fired all of the people that built WM canada into the 20 billion dollar fortune one company it is today. Change is good and needs to happen however removal of the key leaders 90,000 employees respected was too aggressive and should not have been allowed to happen by International leadership. The COO is feared ("my side or outside") not respected and cares little about the business and more about furthering himself which will never happen as he continues to fail in living up to the expectations of a world class organization. The arrival of a new CEO was too late for him to get to know people and make his own unbiased determinations on who could lead going forward and who could not. Instead of speaking to everyone and listening he had to trust his direct reports to make good decisions on how to approach the re-organization and that was the biggest mistake the business could have made and will take years to course correct and cost the business dearly financially.

    Advice to Management

    International leadership needs to sit down and speak to leaders at various levels and ask the hard questions about some of the decisions made with people, their impact on the business and what the real reasons were behind them. Is the current situation better than the last? Is the business set up to achieve its 5 year plan? The answer to this question if put to the 90,000 employees might be eye opening. It's a great business with the best retail employees in the country do right by them! Target closed that meant a good financial performance for us since Canada has little retail to compete in this space. On paper the numbers look good but brewing within we are not happy, not engaged wondering what happened to the great business we all joined. We cant understand how our new leaders came to be in their roles with such low capabilities? Who will lead this business to success in the future? Who will be looked up to and inspire the future leaders? our current leaders will simply not be able to. I am glad to have made it through the cuts but fear i will soon be working else where the fun of retailing is gone!

    Pros

    Good people. Lots of friendships made but lots of turnover. Its a great place for someone to learn the retail life.

    Cons

    Lack of support from Store Manager and up. Not enough pay. Too much work and not enough staff. No appreciation. Expectations are too high for one person to achieve therefore even when you feel you did a good job it wasn't good enough so no recognition.
