    I have been working at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love working at Walmart Canada (Deer Foot City). I have early morning hours where I pick orders on an RF scanner and stock merchandise on the sales floor. My duties also include price changes, scanning outs and order merchandise, completing back room bin audits, finalizing counts on merchandise on hand and correcting shelf cap errors.

    Cons

    Customer Value Associate is a large area to cover and there is never enough staff in our area. Most of us are part time and there is no room for growth and advancement. I have been there for 9 months and sometime have no hours for a week, very lame. We are told not to complain about our hours. This is very unfair as the merchandising part time people seem to get reasonable hours and way more that customer value associates. There is also a lot of favortism coming from department managers and merchandising manager, which is very hurtful. People can not survive on 12 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your staff and don't kick people when they're down. Create a postive environment and your store will shine.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People love to work there, most stay for long term, made it easy to manage them, very few complained about work in the lunchroom.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits were very poor. District management makes poor choices and sticks with people they should not. In an effort to show equality they make the path for easier for youthful women.

    Advice to Management

    When something changes dig deeper to find the real reason.
