    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open up to front line employees in regards to sales and store goals. Be more approachable. Needs to make sure front line associates are comfortable with their work. Stop acting like robots and be more personable.

    Former Employee - Customer Services Specialist in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Customer Services Specialist in Mississauga, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    profit sharing and stock purchase plans. (Helped me pay tuition)
    plenty of opportunities for extra hours, if you are willing to move to the areas that need attention.

    Cons

    Low wages- If you're lucky, you will get a .30 cent raise yearly.
    Hours - If you're part-time, good luck getting morning shifts and weekends off. (mostly closings)
    Not enough coverage in certain areas - They will pull you into areas that are either busy, or need special attention. The challenge with this is that you may not be familiar with the area, and customers will bombard you with questions, that you may not know the answer to. Then that's when they get upset.
    MANAGERS - all bark but no bite. they talk the talk but cannot walk the walk. a lot of them don't even know how to run their own department. They just walk around, pushing buggies with items that customers' left around the store, and make pages about associates going to customer service for their returns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers with real experience. I understand you want to hire within the company which is fine, but please hire someone with common sense, yet understands how to run a business.
    If you're associates are not happy, then don't expect them to go above and beyond. Start defending them when they get yelled at from a customer over something that they have no control over.

    Pros

    You get a measly discount (10%) off everything in the store. You get a bonus check every year, that's nice.

    Cons

    The lines would get so long and so you can be on cash non-stop it can be quite hard for the body. You get questions asked about departments that you do not work in. You

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your cashiers and present opportunities for company growth.

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Edmonton, AB (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Lots of great people work there and they are very friendly. Many assistant managers really care about their associates and work along side them.

    Cons

    Expectations are unrealistic
    Discrimination against women
    No work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes the problem store is the result of a problem store manager. It's important to dig deeper to discover the real problem because the store management will go a long way to cover things up before canstar and hr audits. Look at things like the difference in pay between recent female hires and recent male hires.

    Pros

    the 10% discount can help alot when it comes to grocery shopping, good flexibility if you are in highschool or university, awesome co-workers, profit sharing is a bonus

    Cons

    Very short staffed, crazy line ups, majority of the management needs to be replaced with qualified respectful individuals who know how to do there job. Can get very stressful on the weekends due to not enough staff and it becomes your problem

    The problem isn't your staff, the problem is you
