    I have been working at WalMart Canada part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I wish I could find one!

    Cons

    Very racist management, Does not even care for employees to get breaks at proper time. High level of mismanagement. Pays least of all stores in the area. CS Managers are outright rude and inconsiderate. No potential for growth, only donkey work. Run as fast as you can away from this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your managers to take care of their team, specially on 130 Ave Calgary location. Managers also are in dire need of training to be anti-racist and promote multicultural diversity.

    Former Employee - Photo Lab Technician in Hamilton, ON (Canada)

    I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked here for over 5 years now. Our Previous Photolab Manager was amazing but they executed her position. I love the profit sharing they give us and we can work out our availability hours. The people i worked with became my family. We treat each other equally and well respected.

    Cons

    Customers are always complaining, people think that we have to know every item in the store. Kodak Kiosks Machine always breaking, need to update the machines. Not enough staff in the Photo-lab, many times we don't get our lunch or break after working 8-9 shift, They have this safety & health policies and such but they don't even obey them. Schedules are always messed up. Not a single manager knows how to run a lab and They fired the only Photo-lab Manager that knows how to run a lab. New managers treat us like we don't even exist. They expect us to do everything. This new management team at this location is very bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Updated the Kiosk Machines, Train all managers how to open and close a photo-lab and get people to cover lunch and breaks.

    Poor management equals unhappy customers

    I have been working at WalMart Canada

    Pros

    Good hours but not enough flexibility. Friendly work environment.

    Cons

    I've worked at two walmarts in the past year. The first I quit due to school and the second I took the job because I need money for school. Let me tell you that based on my experiences, they're all the same. Disorganized stores, poor management, and little things that all make a day on the job at walmart bad. Cashiers are expected to do all the work and right everyone else's mistakes. CSMs are mostly bitter and rude. Customers become unhappy easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop expecting so much from your employees. Cashiers can't sell mastercards when there's a mile long line up.

    Current Employee - Supervisor in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I have been working at WalMart Canada full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    10 percent discount & do so and stock purchase contribution.

    Cons

    Every where. Just literate store management. Over 90 percent store manager and assistant managers are high school pass or less. Even subject matter specialists eg. Human resources manager have no related credentials or post secondary education. Extreme favoritism, unfair, subjective hiring and promoting practices. Full of bias and unmotivating work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified managers and adopt objective hiring and promoting process. Save the company from mediocre performance.

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    I worked at WalMart Canada full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good rewards for leaders and willingness to work hard. Good promotion propects if willing to go extra mile

    Cons

    Promotion propects are dependent on leadership within store.The higher you get the less work life balance exists.Very irregular hours with demanding work loads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be blinded by limited opions, ask other peers and associate prior to promoting associates. Get a true picture of what is happening. Hold more out of store focus meeting to hear unbais opions.

    I worked at WalMart Canada as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pros were working at home, at your own time, own computer and flexable timeline. Very little pressure since it's something that your enjoy doing.

    Cons

    There's really no cons in freelancing and working at home. If I were to say, I'll probably say no face to face contact. Working with each buyer was all emailed based, receiving and delivering final files.
