Short staffed

Fun place to work

In place to work, little downtime so shifts passed quickly. I like working with people so interaction with customers and meeting regular customers was nice

Terrible place to work

Management is terrible not enough workers and they expect 1 worker to do it all by yourself. Manager gets anger when you don't want to come in on your day off.




Everything about working there

No home work life balance

They will give you a schedule and expect you to follow it to a T and not tell you when they change it. You will do your job and everyone else’s. They do not care.

Productive can be stressful at times

I worked at one where there was a lot of theft. That was my least favorite part. My manager was a good manager to work with and I liked my co workers.


Schedule and pay


Theft and high turnover

It's a joke

Your hours are in consistent they don't allow the stores to have enough hours for staff to have days off or get things done for the running of the store they under pay staff and don't give benefits

fun workplace

fun workplace. Everyone had loving attitudes. The workers helped each other. The most enjoyable thing about the job was helping customers. Management was great

Freedom and decent benefits

Those things do come with a price. If you have a strong staff everything’s pretty cool. If you don’t the call offs can throw the whole team behind

Terrible Management

Terrible management who was constantly angry over the smallest of things, and clearly had preferences for certain employees. Even those employees were treated badly.

Wouldn’t recommend

The Pay sucks and it’s every two weeks. Barely get hours. Cool co-workers. Unorganized, needs a lot of structure. You have to do too much for such little pay. Could at least up the pay for all that is required of you to do.

Under paid, overworked, and overwhelmed.

There were only 2 workers on day/night shift,I was poorly trained,&too much was expected per employee.My overall experience with this company was poor


accept SNAP benefits, big selection of items for purchase


No benefits, poor pay rate, overwhelming and irrational amount of work expected from 2 employees every night.

Great company to work for

Great company to work for if you are a teen. No full time opportunities. The job is pretty easy overall. No complaints really. Pay is horrible though.

Sorry place to work for

If no one else shows ya required to stay to till close coustomers are rude just like management they don’t like to promote decent work ethic but rather give every thing to people who don’t work or even show up for their shift. I would rather work for Walmart again then these guys
