Reviews

 

Management does not communicate properly.

Dairy Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Chino, CA

I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

ProsYou'll get scheduled regularly & can go online to access open shifts.
A lot of the associates are very friendly and helpful.

ConsIf you're a new hire or it is your first job, they'll have you do a bunch of random things. Seasonal is super busy. A little demanding.

Advice to Senior ManagementFine tune the process after completing CBL's for new hires.

It was an okay job for school.

Cashier Associate (Former Employee)
Richmond, KY

I worked at Walmart part-time for more than a year

ProsWorked around my school schedule

ConsCustomers, managers, some coworkers, lots of standing

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more aware of the hardships you cashiers face during busy times. Also be more leader like instead of boss like, meaning jump in and help when you can.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Opens doors for later employment....so I've been told.

Overnight Instock (Former Employee)
