Warehouse Supervisor (Former Employee) – Gulf Shores, AL – April 21, 2018
I began working at Walmart as an individual contributor. I was promoted to a warehouse supervisor within a month of employment. I am thankful that the management team was able to recognize and acknowledge my hard work and dedication.
The hours you work are kinda ridiculous especially if you work the weekend shift. Either AM is 3:00 AM- 3:00 pm or 5:00 am to 5:00 pm. Or the night shift is 3:00 PM- 3:30 AM or 5:00 PM- 5:00 AM. Very rarely do you actually get out and go home at those times which can be very stressful. But having 4 days off is very nice if you work the weekend shift. They do have a 3 year rehire period if you leave so be cautious because I learned the hard way.

This company will retaliate if you speak up,not allowed to make mistakes, and you will be bullied. If corporate gives management a bad review they will retaliate, some managers will ask you to work off clock but don't tell ,they don't like you to report accidents because it might mess up their chances for bonuses

A typical day at work Smile and Greet your Customer. Small talk with the Customer. What you learned is work fast. Management is to keep Associates doing their job right. The hardest part of the job is trying to keep the happy. The most enjoyable part of the job keep the Customer happy.

This is a terrible experience. I worked here while attending college to have some income for basic necessities. However, the company pays minimum wages and tries to find any reason not to give a raise and the raises ranges from 5 cents to 25 cents per year for the billion dollar corporation.
Store Co Manager (Former Employee) – Tomball, TX – April 21, 2018
Wal-Mart started as a great company with a great man. The culture has changed in the past 15 years I worked there. In the Houston area that i work in it has lost it's roots of "Our people make the difference." in favor of cost cutting and bottom line. There are still amazing people that work for WalMart and I am sure not everywhere is like my area. Company wide there as been a drastic cutting of jobs that typically contained long term associates and management. I see where this certainly reduces cost in the company; however, I feel the company has lost a great deal of it's people resources.
WalMart is a fantastic company for young, single people that look to advance quick. I would not recommend it for married people with children.
Jewelry Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Rensselaer, NY – April 21, 2018
I actually enjoyed working at Walmart. The staff were team players and I am a people's person so it was great being able to interact with the customers. It's fast paced but, I can say I had fun while working with the other staff.

Walmart is an okay place to work. Some managers are great and others are not. Great first job or if you are low on cash. I was at walmart for 8 years and the worked with me until I finally relocated to a different state.
Produce Associate (Former Employee) – Lemon Grove, CA – April 21, 2018
Working at Walmart was simple but could become difficult mostly on part of the type of customers and obstacles you could and would encounter from time to time from angry customers to complex tasks as helping in other areas and departments. Some days would be slow and other areas like receiving or the bakery or the cashiers would need more help.
Quick and fast responses when help was needed
Sometimes you couldn't appeal to an upset customer
Over all my experience at Walmart was a good experience. A typical day was the usual which is working in a great environment. Management was awesome and very helpful when needed to be. I enjoyed working there I'm no longer there because the job was seasonal for the holidays. I would recommend anyone

Fast paced, have to be willing to be overlooked for a lot of things. they play favorites all the time. salaried members of management and some hourly managers can do no wrong. they only cared about certain workers.
