    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very autonomous, transparent, no shortage of work to be done!! Great people working there, everyone is incredibly friendly :)

    Need to embrace technology more, still fairly old school way of doing business, which can be ok at times but frustrating at others

    Advice to Management

    Upper management says ecommerce is a focus but day to day it is brushed aside

    I worked at Walmart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company as an employer has good benefits for employees. Pays decently well. Has flexible work hours (subject to manager approval)

    Cons

    Very hierarchical. Limited growth opportunities. The role is 'entitled' specialist but has responsibilities equivalent to manager. Long work hours required, specifically during the quarter ending month, sometimes more than 60 hours/week. Highly stressful. Zero recognition from managemenr

    I worked at Walmart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Good brand name (potentially, YMMV) for your resume
    -.....that's about it (really)

    Cons

    -Awful/cheap health benefits with mandatory deductions for life insurance
    -Extremely old/outdated work facilities and lack of meeting rooms (meeting in a loud cafeteria just doesn't cut it)
    -In general, Wal-Mart Canada doesn't seem to attract the "best and brightest" - lots of lazy lifers, poor managers and you're generally not working with "top" or smart talent in any department (HR, finance, property management/real estate)
    -The company likes to sell its "work life balance" lifestyle to potential employees (flex hours/work from home), but most senior employees (senior analysts, and above) very rarely - if ever - get to use these benefits. Just a big lie.
    -General sense of disorganization and lack of accountability - sometimes it is truly surprising how this company got to be as big/financially successful as it is when you see the processes, reporting quality and overall structure of the company being as poor as it is

    Overall, unless you're desperate to get "Wal-Mart" on your resume, there are certainly much better places to work out there.
