Great place to work with when you have great people to work with.
Department Manager/Supervisor (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 30, 2013
My job is to try to keep my areas looking great which include stocking no empty homes. ordering the right amount of product not to much not to less. keep up with all new price changes and new features to display.
even though ive had experienced in retail i did learn how to priorites and that a job like this is no cake walk but i do love the challenge
Management is there to help out and they do. ive learned quite a bit
my coworkers are great i cant think of one i wouldnt want to work with
harderst part of the job is trying to accomplish everything and still help my coworkers on their needs.
the feeling of accomplishing task and jobs that require to be done that same day
For the most part I enjoyed working at Walmart but some managers will only allow you to go so far. I can not really complain about my managers because most of them was very respectful and supported if you did what you were suppose to do. A typical day would be to go in stock and assist customers with purchasing.I learned good customers service skills. The work place culture where I worked was not very diverse. The hardest part of the job was stocking merchandise in your department and having to go help out in other department when they where short staff.
This was not a very good job and the environment was hazardous.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 28, 2017
Everyday I worked there were a lot of customers and almost no employees in the store, we had one or two people at the customer service desk, five cashiers in the whole store, and maybe three or four sales associates to cover all of the store's departments. All of the managers I worked with in the three years I worked there were rude and didn't care about the employees except two the first six months I was there.
Just was a job to get me through school. If you try just a little more than the next person it's pretty simple to get promotions. A lot of things depends on how a location is ran. Some people have a great experience working for Walmart & others don't.
1 hour lunch breaks & great benefits that are actually adorable.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Cutler Bay, FL – May 28, 2017
They make you work way too much and the pay isn't even enough. Some Managers are so rude. I left because an assistant manager was so rude, and disrespectful, screaming at me in front of customers, I felt so embarrassed.
Bakery Associate (Former Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – May 27, 2017
Walmart can be a good or bad place just depend what you make of it. You can move up in positions, and have job security. Can be stressful with the different people shopping there but coworkers were great.
A fine job that is good for anyone who is starting in the working world.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Vestavia Hills, AL – May 27, 2017
A typical Day at Wal-Mart is fairly standard and doesn't change much from day to day, so it is a fairly low stress work environment excepting an unruly customer. At Wal-Mart I have learned how to interact with and serve customers in a polite and dignified manner and in addition i have learned how to interact with multiple personalities. Management has ranged from very good and understanding to overly strict and overbearing. There's not much of a workplace culture outside of interacting with other employees in a friendly manner. The hardest part of the job is making sure that the customers are happy because people are varied and sometimes hard to deal with, while everything else never changes much so it's fairly routine. The most enjoyable part of the job is interacting with interesting people and getting to know them.
Low stress, not exceptionally difficult, and decent benefits
Wal-Mart Associate (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 27, 2017
Working at Walmart was okay. The work was easy, but working there made it seem like I wasn't getting anything free time for myself. The management was descent, it seem like they were always to busy to talk to the employees with issues.
Productive and super fun place to work! They treat you so wonderful!
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Oklahoma City, OK – May 27, 2017
This is the best company that I have ever worked for in my life! They treat you so well and the environment is so easy and happy going! I love how friendly all my coworkers and upper management are. They are so understanding and wonderful all around.
A decent job to grow as a person and learn a good work ethic.
Lead Electronics Associate (Former Employee) – Columbia, TN – May 27, 2017
For the most part it was an easy job, I learned a lot and grew as a person. I enjoyed most of the people I worked with, however the ones who didn't work weren't held accountable so the ones that did work had to work that much harder. Management didn't communicate and after a while the job got too stressful and I needed a change and I also finally had a career focus. The hardest part of the job was when we had a lot of freight to work, but not enough coverage to help customers and help with freight. The most enjoyable part of the job was some of the people I worked with and strategizing the work we needed to do and seeing progress as we worked efficiently.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 27, 2017
First off, I would just like to point out that most of the cashiers and csm treated me with respect but the environment was too much to handle, What really made the decision finalized is the fact that I couldn't have the ability to step into my job without feeling overwhelmed. The customers most of the time are pleasant but there are a few that just put down your character if they can't get their way.
Employee discounts, Fair employers/employees, close to home
Electronics Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Cushing, OK – May 27, 2017
It's a great place to work for some, frustrating for others. Management pushes on those that work hardest and plays favorites. Micromanagement is abundant. Pay is decent for the job description. Room for advancement is endless.
lead Licensed optician (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 27, 2017
There bio-metric hand scanning devise violates religious freedoms and it violates the right to privacy. They suck, the worst company I have ever worked at. They violate humane rights issues (freedom of religion & right to privacy at work).
