    Pros

    Great & Fun environment with a diverse group of friendly people. Flexible Schedule. 10% Discount card.

    Cons

    Management makes you ask every single person if they would like to apply for a Mastercard. Even if the customer has a Mastercard in their hand and about to pay with it. If you did not ask her, you would be penalized.

    Advice to Management

    Go easy on credit cards please. Give more hours please. Increase the commission on Mastercard sales please.

    I have been working at WalMart Canada (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -You get a Discount Card -Permanent job security -Lots of extra shifts available at almost any time -Meet lots of cool and interesting people. -Work is straight forward. Just show up to unpack skids and stock shelves. -High concern for safety -Company values treating customers like kings and royalty

    Cons

    The above sounded like heaven, but now here comes the hard bitter truths of Wally World. -Absolute physical labor intensive. You MUST possess the strength to move heavy objects on a consistent basis. -Very cheap/money hungry company. They constantly increase work expectations to yield more profits, while skimping heavily on not hiring any extra workers to help out. I said above that lots of extra shifts are available, but it's mostly a rouse to cover up the extreme understaffing that goes on during nights. -High School like cliques and rivalries. It gets worse when dealing with higher management., where favoritism definitely plays a role in who gets spared from being talked down to. -Zero pay bonuses/compensation. Holidays are the only time you see a slight pay boost. Being called in when the store asks you to still results in the same base pay. But most of all: Overnight Stocker = Bottom of the totem pole/corporate lackey Managers see you as tools and pretty much throw you around the store doing everything. Blame is often passed down to you which generally creates the toxic atmosphere of people disliking one an another. Overall, this is a job you only get if you're desperate for money. I would say the problem might not even be Wal-Mart itself but just this certain job title. Janitors seem to be more relaxed here and are most often left alone.

    Advice to Management

    Realize you have created an atmosphere of dividing people into cliques and berating everyone to cover up your own failings.
