Customer Service Rep (Current Employee)

29.3.2013, Job Location: Summerville, SC
It's a nice place to work and stability. Meeting new people everyday is also a plus, but it has its down falls. Often i don't feel treated equally with other employees and the benefits aren't good. I've been working here for almost 4 years and only make $9.35 an hour.

I have so much experience in different departments in the store and feel like i deserve more. With that being said this is my reasoning on searching for a new job and or career. It's normally busy and that's something that i love, makes the day go by faster. Ive learned so much from knowing how to present myself in front of a customer to counting and handling large quantities of money.

Management is not fair on how they make decisions between employees and co-workers make it easier to deal with. We normally encourage each other and help one another. The hardest part of this job is dealing with rude customers, but even that's not hard for me. It sometimes gets a little uncomfortable but i always master the situation and the customer leaves happy or content.

The most enjoyable part of this job is the customers.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

21.3.2013, Job Location: Morgantown, WV
Working at Wal-mart has certainly has its moments like any other place of employment. For me, it has been the job that I need it to be. My superiors have always shown me the utmost respect and compliance when working with my hectic school schedules or personal issues that have risen over the past seven years of my employment.

While there are those who have had constraining issues with the company, I personally have felt no animosity or ill-will towards my supervisors or co-workers, and for this I have been truly fortunate. Along with my schedule, medical, and bonus benefits, the most constraining part of my job has been the excruciatingly long hours and heavy workloads that I am subjected to. It's a constantly changing environment and with that comes added stresses of new projects and inventory preparations that can take weeks to accomplish.

Sometimes this unfortunately enables a few normal 8 hour work days quickly turning in to the inevitable 32 hour straight grind. These hardships in my opinion do not outweigh the benefits therefore I do not mind coming in early, staying late, being scheduled on my days off, or losing weekends and holidays.

Cashier (Former Employee)

5.3.2013, Job Location: Arlington, TX
Wokring at walmart was a very difficult but also fun job. You learn new people. You see what each person buys everyday, thru out the week. Any day at walmart was a very busy day. I worked in the morning the same shift Monday-Friday 6:30am-4pm Saturday-Sunday would be any shift available.

The management in the morning was the best because everything wasn't so rushed or at a fast pace. They weren't to busy to come to your register to count or exchange out any merchandise you needed. My co-workers were like neighbors next door. We all worked hard for the money we earned.

We all had our moments of laughter,cries & sad days. But we came in did what we all had to do and worried about other things outside of work. There wasn't any real hard part working for walmart honestly, the worse thing that could possibly happen to you at walmart is having someone else work you register and something so happens to come up and your shorter than what you were before your shift started.

You cant trust everyone that works on your register because they may have someone they know come shorten your draw and that along will put you in a waddle of mess. But overall my experience working there was a very memorable and I can honestly say that I loved it there.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)

25.2.2013, Job Location: Austin, TX
A typical day at work starts with sliding your badge through the time clock. Heading out to the sales floor to get keys you notice how much was left undone by the overnight crew. Having 8 hours to stock all the merchandise that came in the truck the night before, help customers and sell electronics results in a busy but manageable day...

Until management get's involved. Suddenly the department is left unattended so that homelines can get stocked or have it's modulars redone, because homeline associates can't do this on their own. I'm all about one team one fight, but it should really work both ways.

Pay is fairly low, but it will pay bills if not much else. Benifits are ok if you are single, but if you have a family don't try to work here unless they can guarantee a full-time position, which they wont. It's far cheaper to hire multiple people and have them work seperate days so that they are under ""full-time"" hours.

GM Unloader (Former Employee)

19.2.2013, Job Location: Brookhaven, MS
A typical day in the retail industry of Wal-Mart was challenging especially during during seasonal seasonal selling periods like christmas and back-to-school. I learned a lot as an individual at Wal-Mart but also even more about business and the retail industry.

At the University of Southern Mississippi, I was and is still able to gain a lot more insight about the retail industry and all of the operations involved in it. I have also learned the challenging roles that managers take on a daily basis such as operational managing direct material, labor, and overhead.

My co-workers also taught me a lot about associates in general like what to expect from people as it relates to the betterment of the business overall mission. I would say that the hardest part about my job was the direct physical labor of associated with it.

At times, it was extremely tough unloading two or three trucks everyday. However, as I began to learn more about business at USM, I learned that our labor was play a major role in Wal-Mart's productivity rate.

The most enjoyable part of my job was the pursuit of accomplishing the company's overall mission and satisfying the owners as with any business.

Sr. Facilitator - Talent Development (Former Employee)

8.2.2013, Job Location: Ohio
Walmart is a fine company for 2 types of people: 1) early career-minded, and (mostly) uninspired professionals, and; 2) those who just need ""a job"" and either can't get much else (don't want to work in the fast food industry), or aren't really skilled at anything in particular.

If you are the former, you can certainly build a long career with Walmart. However, you will become trapped after a certain number of years because,...well, its complicated.

If you are the later, you will barely eek-out a living and the health benefits (if you really study them), are pretty bad and getting worse (more expensive).

While Walmart has a written culture that focuses on three core values, they are not readily practiced much by Management.

Finally, Walmart's heavy investment in technology is all aimed at reducing the number of humans needed to work in the stores. Customer Service no longer means helping customers. It now means just ensuring that merchandise is available on the shelf and priced right. As such, the work is mostly stocking, moving merchandise, and doing price changes. A computer determines your duties and it is all timed in order to assess one's productivity. All this for a smidge over minimum wage.

Overnight Produce Stocker (Former Employee)

8.2.2013, Job Location: Orlando, FL
No other phrase seems to fit this job better than this. Daily I would have to wake up at 8 pm and get ready for my shift that started at 10. After reaching the store I would be greeted with the all smiling, yet tired faces of my coworkers who, while either much older than me, still acted as if they were in highschool with all of the drama that entails.

Management was at best helpful and on task, and at worst it seemed as if asking them to do anything for their subordinates was arm twistingly painful. The produce night shift was monotonous and repetitive, there was almost no change to what we had to do, and while that was nice it became boring after a while. I did learn a lot about the upkeep of produce and the difference between a ripe and overripe fruit.

The most difficult part of the job was pulling down freight, at 2 a.m. during our lunch break at freight truck would come in stacked to the ceiling with produce products, and since I was never properly trained in the usage of electric pallet jacks, I had to use a hand drawn one and pull them down.

The best part of the job was working the salad wall, they would come in these lightweight boxes and all I'd have to do was check the dates and toss the bad ones then restock with newer ones.

Warehouse/Receiving Supervisor (Former Employee)

20.1.2013, Job Location: Highland, IL
On a typical day at Wal-Mart at least at the store I was fortunate to be employed, I along with most other of the employees knew what their jobs were and knew what to do to get them done. Almost everyday I had learned something new or was willing to learn new objectives by my fellow employees which made it such a "team" around there.

Management was kind but again for us who had worked the shift I worked, management was helpful when needed but knew we would get the job done no matter how jobs they gave us. Everyday was hard work and we all were given many responsibly but did what we could to get them done and always asked or assisted each other to get them done before our shift ended.

Over the 6 years working for Wal-Mart I worked in a few various positions but as for my last as a receiving manager was where I felt most at home. Due to meeting all the new vendors and the constant multitasking which kept me busy all day and excepting something new to occur every time I walked in always kept me on my toes.

What I have learned most from working at Wal-Mart has been what it takes to operate a day to day operation of just one of hundreds of retail stores.

Cake Decorator (Former Employee)

8.1.2013, Job Location: Saint Peters, MO
I was a cake decorator and I LOVED the actual work part of the job. I got to make childrens birthday parties special as well as weddings and other special occasions. HOWEVER, the managers cared absolutely nothing about your life or how you feel or anything.

First, I had a manager ask me to come in at different times for two weeks than what i was scheduled so i assumed she had let other management know and changed my schedule. Nope, I was reprimanded for what they thought was 2 tardies and 1 no show. After pleading my case, i kept my job. Now my job was tuesday through saturday 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

One weekend was coming up and we had a tonnnnn of orders and because they had just fired the other decorator, i was the only one. So they asked me to work friday overnight after working 7-3 on friday. I agreed. So i left work at 3 and came back at 10p on friday. Well, i worked until 7a.m. on saturday then went to clock out and they told me no. I needed to make stock cakes for the cooler.

So then, i worked until 12 p.m. Then I went to leave and they still wanted me to stay until 5 p.m! I had just found out i was pregnant and they were aware of this. When I reminded them about this, they told me "I should stop being a baby and do my job before i get fired." So I threw in the towel right there!

Don't ever let an employer walk all over you like that and take advantage of you.

Backroom Inventory (Former Employee)

3.1.2013, Job Location: Indian Trail, NC
Typical day starts with a meeting, then straight to your assignment. I learned how to use a Telxon to navigate items in the store, and to keep track of inventory. Also how to use forklift and scissor lift.

Direct management was ok to work with. There were the few who would overstep their professional boundaries. Co-managers and store managers were very difficult people to work with. They were very hard on the older/elderly employees, which was difficult to watch. Coworkers were mostly good people.

Hardest part of the job was meeting the impossible goals management would sometimes set. Returning inventory to the back room, they want it all put back on the backroom shelves, yet many times there is just not room to fit it all, and you take the fall for that. Also, you will get fussed at for not completely filling a shelf, for example, but at the same time you will get yelled at if you open a box and the whole box doesn't fit on the shelf. So it's a no-win. But you learn to take the yelling and move on.

Most enjoyable part of the job was working with people who just want to get the job done, and work together to do it.

Cashier, Inventory Associate (Former Employee)

27.12.2012, Job Location: Chipley, FL
I worked overnight shift at walmart, first as a cashier. As a cashier I was expected to take care of costumers, check their items out using the scanner, cash register and maintaining a cash draw. I would clean all registers, collect trash, random items needing to be put back on shelves, sweep and restock. I then switched to inventory associate position, which was more fast paced and kept me busy throughout my entire shift, unlike cashiering.

As an inventory associate, I would use computer system to see what items were needed out on the floor and collect those items from the backroom for the stockers. There would be items in every department and we would have 5 hours at the most to collect all items shown. After we would then start collecting the overstock and enter that back into the system, with correct counts, package it and put in proper, designated area.

Management at the particular Walmart I worked at, was to me, all over the place. There was the general manager, then 2 assistant gms, and countless other manager positons, so things would get a little confusing, meaning you could have one manager come up and tell you to do something in particular and then have another come up and tell you to do something completely different. With that particular job I wish it had been a little more stuctured with more communication.

Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)

14.12.2012, Job Location: Kansas City, MO
I have been with Walmart for 7 years and most of that time has been at the customer service desk. When working the service desk you are dealing with alot of different customers. So you need the ability to adapt with each new person. You really dont have to have any regard to policeys and rules as they will be thrown out the window the secound a customer starts to get loud. Once that happens they will get what they want and maybe even a gift card for the time.

Now as managmet goes you better have a hard shell cause most of them have not a clue what there devistion is doing. Some are runnign things like a boot camp and you dont get pull ups as punishment you get a cut in hours or very bad hours meaning work supper late one day and then turn around and come in supper early the next.

Other associates? well some work well and do the job that is required. Others do nothing at all. It seems the ones that do nothing and talk all day are the ones that get the good treatment. Those of us that work and work hard get steped on all the way around.

This is not a job for a family person or one that is in need of a decent job as you will not get hours, schedule, benefits, or pay that is requried to be a mom or dad. Think twice and hard before applying

Bakery Associate (Former Employee)

4.12.2012, Job Location: Denton, TX
I always had something to be working on but if one manager tells you to do something then another will come behind them and tell you to do something different. It was hard to stay on one task because management didn't work together to inform one or the other who was working on what.

I worked 5am to 2pm i was classified as a part time associate but i was working full-time hours. I tryed to get my schedule changed because i had no one to help me take my daughter to school so i needed to come in at 7am and my manager told me she could not do that. thats a few of the hardest parts of my job because when i started working there they told me there a flexable with hours for parttime employes and thats what i was.

The most enjoyable part was the people i worked with in the bakery i became close some of them but others did not like me.

Courtesy Associate (Former Employee)

27.11.2012, Job Location: Pleasanton, CA
Shortly after clocking into work, I applied sun lotion and strapped on my vest. I have one to two other associates assisting me. One would be using the electric cart machine with remote control to haul in large stacks of carts (up to 20 specifically).

Hauling in carts was pretty much the entire eight hours of my shift. We would get the occasional call to do carry out service for a television set or household furniture. The title "Courtesy Associate" is very misleading, as "Cart-Pusher" is a more suitable description of this job as there is little contact with customers compared to previous jobs I've had.

Management was fairly strict about lunch and clock-out times, but overall decent and friendly. All of my co-workers are friendly and I've never been given any trouble, since a cooperative, friendly environment is expected from every associate. The hardest part of the job isn't the physical labor, but rather the boredom that follows hauling in carts day in and day out. I've worked as courtesy positions before, but none required me to haul carts in for the full eight hours of work, just one to two hours worth.

The most enjoyable part of this work is rather hard for me to fathom as there weren't many strong points keeping me tied to being a Courtesy Associate. I did however, appreciate being valued like a member of the team and very decent management.

Meat Sales Associate (Former Employee)

12.11.2012, Job Location: Monona, WI
My day would start by me coming in either at 5 or 6 am. I would grab an hand held terminal and printer for the day and go to my department being the meat department. First thing I had to do was go through all of the fresh product and pull out all the product with old dates while marking down prices on product that had dates for the next day so we could sell them faster.

So for example if today's date was 11/12/12 and the product had that same date I would have to pull it off the shelf. Now if the product had the tomorrows date of 11/13/12 I would have to mark it down with the hand held and print a new price tag for it. After I was done with that I would come back and start with the ham section and fill the product.

I would then go to the brats, then beef, and etc. After I was done filling I would bin meat product that came in that morning. After that was done I would take all the product that I had pulled in the morning and using the hand held I would scan each item to be taken out of the system to correct the inventory numbers and then throw way all or some of the bad product.

Some of the product, if good, would then be donated to charities. So in all my job was very easy and not really hard at all. My co-workers were great and my manager was great as well.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

10.11.2012, Job Location: Upstate NY
As a Sales Associate, you are expected to zone each aisle first thing upon starting shift, then do return carts while still zoning as you go. Assistant Manager tells you to finish an over-flowing cart with everything on it belonging to 7 different aisles in 20 minutes.

They expect you to be superhuman to be able to do this. I do like my job, it's nice to chat with customers and being able to help them with what merchandise they are looking for and the co-workers are very nice. The hardest part was, in a typical week, I used to be given 32 work hours but then suddenly, a year and 4 mos later, everything drastically changed, they started giving me 4 hours one week, 8 the next, 15 the following week and is on-going at about 16 hours a week, not even reaching 24 hours in a week.

My supervisor told me I have to change my availability in order to restore those hours I am losing. I dont drive and I cant afford to buy a car, so I have to contend with these slashed hours until I find another job, which I hope and pray will be soon. Funny how you do your best at work, get glowing praises for the job you do, even received an "Exceeds Expectations" on the annual employee review, yet gets rewarded with a measly 4-hour to 16-hour a week schedule without being informed as to why your hours were cut or what you did or didn't do to deserve it.

Sales Associate (Former Employee)

4.11.2012, Job Location: Muskogee, OK
Working here was certainly a challenge in a few different ways. The work itself was easy and simple, but being a big corporation, the company has strict guidelines and goals that seem to be unattainable unless you work at a store that never gets busy and work with people who have your same work ethic.

I especially had issues with my immediate supervisor, who really did not help me learn the processes and duties of the position at all, even though I directly asked her if she could assist me. My co-workers had all worked there for 6 or more months, and seemed to be in a groove and had no time to train someone new.

I basically learned the job on my own through trial-and-error because I had no other options. I even went to upper management with concerns and although they did listen to me with open ears, nothing ever came about it.

Once I learned exactly what I needed to do to correctly perform this job, it was somewhat enjoyable, because it really is a simple and easy job. I loved helping customers, and they really seemed to appreciate my help, because not everyone who works at such a big store is willing to go above and beyond for a customer.

Jewelry and Shoes sales associate (Current Employee)

30.10.2012, Job Location: Fayetteville, NC
I have been working at walmart for almost 2 and a 1/2 years, not only am I still only making 8.65/hr but it is also almost impossible to move up in the company. A typical day at work for me would be to work on freight, and make sure things are straightened up. Along with being treated like a child by my department manager, who doesn't know how to be a manager. I've learned quite a bit working at Walmart, but unless I planned on moving to another Walmart, the things I've learned I couldn't take with me anywhere else.

Most of the managment at Walmart is very helpful, and they know how to do their job. However, our new store manager who is supposed to be the main person out on the floor and checking on his employees is usually the one hiding in the back in his office, not knowing how to do his job. The only hard part about my job is when I get busy and can't take care of everyone as quickly as I would like, and I end up with upset customers when I can't do anything about it. As far as enjoyable goes, it would have to be when I get customers that make me smile and laugh, then it makes my day go by a lot better than I thought it would.

All in all, I really want to get out of Walmart. I would like to find a better job that I can enjoy every day, and not just sometimes.

Inventory Management Specialist (Current Employee)

22.10.2012, Job Location: Lincoln, NE
Wal-mart starts you off with an extremely low pay rate. Usually barely over minimum wage, maybe a dollar (assuming you don't really have any relevant work history. Still not typically paid well even if you do.) if you're lucky. The work isn't always very difficult, but the time you spend working there isn't worth it.

Your workload is too much and the pay isn't even close to proportional. I was a department manager and they wanted to pay me 9 dollars an hour to manage 4 departments (two, MAYBE three would be reasonable depending on what departments they are).

Walmart offers standard 40 cent raises for average performance and 50 cent raises for going above and beyond every year, and reaching that performance goal isn't worth your time for that extra ten cents.

Assuming you got your 50 cent raise for five years, you would be ahead two dollars and fifty cents in five years. I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like I could pull in more than that with a job that provided merit raises, which wal-mart does not allow.

Sales Associate- Full-time (Former Employee)

10.10.2012, Job Location: Corpus Christi, TX
A typical day at work for Wal-Mart would be rather busy with customers coming up to you more than one at a time hassling you with questions, you must always know every single thing about your department.

What I learned working there is you must always have an answer to every question a customer asks when you are out on the floor on your own. Management was not so great but I am sure at other stores management is different.

Some of my co-workers were good but the thing about working at a big store is there are a lot of rumors. I felt like I was back in high school. The hardest part of my job would probably have been unloading trucks, I had to unload trucks every single day. It was hard and sometimes the pallets were so heavy they came speeding toward me.

The most enjoyable part of my job was not having someone giving me supervision all the time. I had peace and quiet to get all my tasks done.

Receiving Associate/Overnight Stocker (Former Employee)

22.9.2012, Job Location: Winchester, Virginia
I really can't recommend anyone work for Walmart unless you have no alternatives. Even then, try to make your time with them as short as possible.

When I was with the company, I worked overnights as a stocker. Not a bad job and I worked with some good people.


Drama was very prominent in the workplace. Managers were biased towards certain people, specifically those that didn't put any real effort into their work, while those that did often got the short end of the stick.

The plus side to working for Walmart is having the ability to plan around your schedule. When you went in for your shift, your hours were set--if you were scheduled for an eight hour day, you worked your eight hours and left.

The downside is you better hope you have a supplemental income or another job with real benefits, because what Walmart offers is pathetic. They've made it a point to reduce their full-time workforce as much as possible and fill in with part-timers that don't get any sort of benefits, all in an effort to maximize profits while cutting costs.

My review may seem slanted in one direction, but believe me when I say, if you've heard a horror story from a former employee, odds are it was true.

Stocker (Former Employee)

10.9.2012, Job Location: Orlando, FL
A typical day at work at Wal-Mart was mostly routine and comfortable. I worked there for so many years but I liked that there was always a possibility that there may be something new that night for us to do since it is such a huge and successful company.

I learned loyalty for a company and how to adapt to a job resposibility through the bad and good. The management had it's pros and cons when it was time for managers to move up in the company or to rotate to different stores but all in all I had mostly great management that was made us feel like a family rather than just their employees. The co-workers at that job were amazing because we grew to feel as a family amongst eachother and always were willing to help eachother.

The hardest part of the job was working with pallets on the floor while customers tried to shop. Overnight was mostly when we had customers and it was the same time the trucks would come in so us weighing both was tough but manageable. Also at the end when the company began their cuts it was a bit devastating because how long I invested in the company, it was sad to go.

The most enjoyable part was the team work, the knowing exactly what to do when we got to work and just working with an awesome company.

Forklift Driver (Current Employee)

1.9.2012, Job Location: Baytown, TX
I've worked for Walmart in 3 different distribution centers over the last 7 years and I'll say this it's good in the beginning because the salary is a bit higher than most local jobs however the big drawback is after 2 1/2 years you'll max out which to some may not be an issue but if you're an individual like me who has to shoulder more of the load than others I feel I should get paid more than someone who doesn't do half of what I do.

Management is very poor very indecisive and inexperienced people are being hired off the street to be managers when at one point in time the motto was we'll hire from within next thing you know people with no experience are being hired and we're being forced to train our future bosses figure that one out. There's another big problem the hours are not consistent again the pay is good you'll start in the mid 15's but what good is the pay if you're only working 25-30hrs a week and it's like that for a few months.

Prime example in July and August I'll average maybe 28hrs a week the next couple months I'll average 50+ hrs sounds great but there's no balance and consistency. For me to be the breadwinner of my family it's hard to plan for anything because you never really know how your hours are. If you're young fresh out of high school it's a perfect job to work and go to college if you're older than say 27 and have a family to feed I hope your spouse has a good job because you'll never advance up no matter how hard you try, and your hours are never guaranteed.

Sales Associate/Customer Service (Former Employee)

27.8.2012, Job Location: Omaha, NE
Overall, I loved my job at Walmart. I would still be with them if there had been any positions available when I moved out to AZ. They're great for students and part-timers. Never ever go career though. I couldn't survive working full time at Walmart in Nebraska. I made less than 17,000 a year as a full-time associate with almost 2 years with them. That’s before tax time too.

I had fun and enjoyed working with my co-workers.

Management drove me insane. Scheduling was always wrong and never enough people were scheduled. Half the time I don't think the managers understood the word planning. Never ever mention organizing to them either. They're usually very nice people but never organized as far as I can tell.

The hardest part of the entire job was transitioning from a military mindset of planning and organization to complete randomness. Prioritizing was a foreign concept too.

I did love my job though. I worked in the photo lab, electronics, toys, stationary, and as a cashier. Customer service was essential and I love that part of the job.

Backroom Inventory Associate (Current Employee)

16.8.2012, Job Location: Richmond, VA
There are good days and not so good days, I currently work overnight 10pm to 7am and my night consists of picking merchandise with the use of a telzon and taking that picked merchandise to the floor for the overnight stockers to place on shelves, after the o.n stockers have done their job they bring back to me what is called exceptions for the morning staff to research and bin.

I also bin nightly overstock frieght into bins by department so that each department stays together. My management team, some are awesome but then you have some that needs to be more relatable, my coworkers for the most part are awesome hard working people who need to be recognized more often for what they accomplish especially when we are shorthanded, the hardest part of my job is trying to accomplish and complete certain things when everyone is not on the same page, meaning if you have too much merchandise and u have no where for it to go.

The most enjoyable part is working with hardworking and fun individuals.
