    Former Employee - Warehouse/Receiving Associate in New Westminster, BC

    I worked at WalMart Canada

    Pros

    10% discount on all purchases

    Cons

    Excessive labour; unfriendly and frustrated managers, who themselves earn miserable pay but with phony title of "manager"; disproportionately low wages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until pay is radically improved, salaries, rather than hourly pittance, is paid, and proper benefits are paid, employee turnover will continue to be high.

    I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get to learn a lot about retail - how the industry works and you may have the chance to become a department manager but that's pretty much it.

    Cons

    This can really be a long list but i'll keep it short - very low pay, you are easily replaceable for someone who will take even less pay, the opportunities for advancement are pretty low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to see more recognition over a job well done.

    I worked at WalMart Canada part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Really easy. Everyone learns it quick. Great for students.

    Cons

    Everything becomes repetitive and boring after a few months. Never get full 8 hour shifts as the photo lab gets the smallest budget out of all the other departments.
