Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at WalMart Canada full-time (More than a year)

Pros

10% discount on instore and online purchases is handy. Field positions get a company car, and a lot of flexibility to come and go as you want.

Cons

"every day low cost" means re-using binders, pens, pencils, phones, chairs, laptops etc until they are broken, and then keep on using it. The corporate culture is 'small town southern USA' and if you don't fit, you are blackballed. Fixing items at the home office is not done - water coolers, air conditioning, washrooms (no hot water in one of the men's), carpet gets taped down.

Advice to Management

fire my coach please!

    I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the pay is above min wage and people working there are friendly,
    big lounge area
    lots of hours

    Cons

    hard to switch out of a position you are in
    breaks are not given on time
    if you are late you are penalized
    you also get in trouble if you count till wrong, slow at cashing people out, don't sell master cards, talk on the job

    Advice to Management

    Overall I liked working there until the new management came and ruined the whole experience they treated the employees like robots and nothing more. They are the reason why I left. Since they came alot of other people also left.
