Assistant Manager for Seasonal/Hard Goods (Former Employee) – Chesapeake, VA – June 26, 2016
Great job learning experience and a great place to advance if you put in the effort. Schedule available three weeks in advance and ability to change shifts if needed. You are able to transfer to different departments and learn different areas if willing to work for it
Not a fair place for The back Bone of the Company The employees

There was never a consistent schedule, I was never given the time to take the mandatory test, I would ask every day if i could take the test and was always told no. I was let go but promised my job back because i had to call out more than 4 days in a row because i was in the HOSPITAL! They said that I could have my job back but would have to Reapply. On top of that no one can work full time, not even the management . I never knew when i would work or for how long and being a disabled person trying to get back on my feet this made things very difficult for my home life, I missed doctors appointments very often even when i had requested the time off.

overall good company, diverse, depending on your management if your working experience will be a good one. Hardest part of the job is when areas are under staffed. Enjoyable part of job is when you put a smile on a customers face and when you are recognized by your hard work.

If you like working hard, getting paid little and continually being passed over for promotion, Walmart is for you!
I worked for Walmart for over 3 years and continually worked hard to please all the customers and show my skill. I learned new departments, new procedures and image editing in order to show my capacity. I was denied Full Time status 3 times because I was not a cute girl or a favorite of any of the managers.
Sadly, Walmart culture is so full of cheap products and lowest cost mindset that they pass over better employee and customer satisfaction for the almighty dollar.
1 hour lunch breaks, very "organized" company structure, Everyone gets benefits with time
Poor management, easy to be lost among the crowd, favoritisim

You go to work a typical day at Walmart which could consist of doing tractor or trailer pm inspections. You go out and inbound empty trailers giving a greentag for ok to use or red tag for needs pm or repair. Or you could be assigned to repairing redtag trailers. Or doing pm followup repairs on either tractor or trailers. Also learned to repair tractor apu's. As for what i've learned would be apu repairs since Roadway had none and espar repairs. Coworkers were ok and some most were nice to work with but had to watch out for backstabbing with others. I got to be friends with most and new who I didn't trust. Management was good and was always offered a cookout of some sort, unfortunately their welfare in doing their job had rules for everything and was made to abuse the right to coach someone. I'm all for times when discipline is needed but not so much that you learn not to trust them. I liked most of the management team but never trusted them for that reason. Rules are very needed but you have to learn to talk to your associate and not make them feel and outcast. The pay was good and for the most part so were the managers. I was very aware that they had to do the job they were entrusted with. Hardest part of the job was working on the tractors, some of the jobs on them offered not so much room. Otherwise you enjoyed what you did.
good pay and good benefits and healthcare
too many rules for coaching and stepping a person out of there job.
great way to meet people and have face to face contact with customers
Cashier (Current Employee) – MS – June 26, 2016
a typical day at work consisted of the work flow being fast and steady. u came in contact with many different personalities(including management) but you had to be able to adjust and continue to have a smiling face. I learned that you must stay on task in order for the day to run smoothly as schedule required. management required a lot of its cashiers and one problem management looked for cashiers to fix it. cashiers all depended on each other to stay aware of different sales offered by the company. the hardest part of the job was I think cleaning at the end of the shifts because of cleaning duties not being enforced and followed by each cashier on all shifts. the most enjoyable part of the job was the bonuses that was added to your check when quarterly monthly sales was meet and you could actually see the difference.
Wal-Mart Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Prescott Valley, AZ – June 26, 2016
I worked in the toy section mainly, but also assisted throughout the store as needed, stocked inventory, assisted customers. My favorite part of the job was both the interaction of clients and employees.
Cashier/ICS Team (Former Employee) – Miami, OK – June 26, 2016
This was a great place to work at. I enjoyed working here. If only I could have stayed longer, My co-workers here were great to work with. Everyone got along really good. Management was always on the ball. The hardest part of this job was the holidays. Those days were crazy. All in all this was a great environment to work at.
