Support from Management

Leadership does communicate goals clearly and sometimes employees are included in decision making.However expectatios aren't that realistic.

Teamwork

It depends who it is. Maybe two persons on the same shift will work together if they are closely associated.However ,no two supervisors are on the same page .

Level of Autonomy

I was trusted by the Department Manager but beyond this rank,very little confidence was placed in my work.

Communication

Yes. I did.

Gender Equality

They are treated equal in the sense they are made to carry out difficult tasks and handle heavy workloads.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Yes the company hires older wokers. I do not see that they were supported.

Career Development

Through the right avenues , yes I believe that it could.

Overall Compensation for your work

For the challenges of working for Wal Mart the pay as well as benefit could be a bit more.The company has taken a step in the right direction regarding pay. Benefits should be re-evaluated.

Office/Work Environment

Yes,there was.

Eco-consciousness

For the most part,yes.

Work-Life Balance

The Department Management always took family matters into consideration but other management does not. For them,duties at work came before everything,even one's own health.

Company Image

In all honesty it is hard to feel proud sometimes due to harsh treatment of customers and upper levels of management.The average associate is left to feel in between the two with very little support,yet he or she carries out their tasks.

Job security

No I did not feel stable . My position was always threatened and I was always made to feel that I could be replaced at any point.

Handicap Accessibility

No it does not . There are older workers that are supported by shopping carts while the work. There are however plenty of handicap parking spaces.

Workplace Safety

Wal Mart relies on CBLs for this training. Employees are very seldom trained by supervisors.

Challenging Work

Yes.

Inclusive/Diverse

For the most part ,yes.However, I was directly harassed and insulted concerning my religious beliefs by a particular manager.For this reason.I resigned.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I would say to Head Office to never take submitted complaints lightly.To take them seriously. To let anyone working know that discrimination of any kind is a serious offense. Apparently,it isn't taken seriously so very little is done to correct this problem.

I like about the employer

Good learning experience.

I dislike about the employer

Most employees work very hard yet they're work is constantly put down and seldom appreciated.

I like about the employer

I dislike about the employer

Will not pay unemployment when they terminate you by saying that it was Gross Misconduct no matter the reason.

  • 21.Feb 2017
  • Employee

Support from Management

Good and bad managers come and go frequently. Not a high standard for managers either way.

Teamwork

Teamwork at Walmart consist of you doing someone else's job because they don't staff area properly.

Communication

The two biggest weaknesses in Walmart are the complete lack of communication and accountability.

Gender Equality

If you work hard and prove your worth you will be promoted regardless of what your gender is.

Career Development

Most employees that get promoted are never trained on how to do the job they get promoted to. Then they all wonder why jobs don't get done the right way and store processes are broken.

Overall Compensation for your work

Pay is terrible, but it's what's to be expected in retail.

Office/Work Environment

Lighting is terrible and areas are always dusty.

Eco-consciousness

Amount of cardboard and plastics that are recycled is encouraging.

Job security

If you work hard you will always have a job at Walmart.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If your going to promote associates to supervisors, actually train them to do the job.

I like about the employer

If you approach your job the right way you can learn a lot.

I dislike about the employer

Complete lack of communication and accountability.

  • 12.Mar 2017
  • Employee

Company culture

I believe how you feel about the company of Walmart is based on which store you work at. I know there are some stores with great management and there are stores with bad management that decides how someone feels about the company.

Support from Management

Management will get notes in the morning, and these notes will trickle down to the lower levels. But on top of these notes, management will want you to do your regular ordinary things, such as price changes, and shelf availability, etc. They will also place you in other departments which can interfere with your progress.

Teamwork

The way the latest pay increase was structured, everyone received the same pay increase. Whether you were a good employee or bad employee you still received the same pay increase percentage.

Level of Autonomy

You will be asked to do a project, but then you will be micromanaged through the whole project.

Communication

Sometimes, management sometimes communicates positives, but regularly only communicates the negatives.

Gender Equality

We have more female department managers than male.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Older associates are usually given easy jobs such as watching the doors.

Career Development

I started work in 2014, by 2015 I was a department manager. My hope is to become an assistant manager, but it seems like I'm being stalled and not even considered for the job.

Overall Compensation for your work

I started at $7.45 an hour as an associate. Before leaving that position I had moved up to $9.00 an hour. When I was promoted to Support Manager I started at $13.00, and after my evaluation went to $13.36. When I took a department manager role, I was increased to $15.00, and after my last evaluation, am now at $15.30 an hour.

Office/Work Environment

This depends on where you work in the store. If you work in the freezer, its going to be cold, if you work on the truck it will be hot or cold, depending on the temperature outside.

Eco-consciousness

WE RECYCLE EVERYTHING!!!

Work-Life Balance

For me, I work 40 hours a week, 5 days of work, off 2 days. I also earn about 120 hours of vacation time a year. As salaried management however, you can work 6 days or 60 to 80 hours a week...

Company Image

I'm happy where I work, but the company needs to crack down on things such as shoplifting and not be so afraid to make the environment safe.

Job security

I can be let go at any time. One bad customer complaint, could see me out on my butt.

Challenging Work

Sometimes, you'll complete a project, and you'll be proud of it, but then a member of management will ask you to completely change it.

Inclusive/Diverse

You can give your opinion, but that doesn't mean anyone cares.

I like about the employer

I like how much I'm paid for my position. I'm middle management, and make $15.00 an hour, which for me and my hours is: $2,400 a month.

I dislike about the employer

I don't like that I cannot move up faster. I've worked for Walmart for over 2 years, and would like to become an Assistant Manager, but feel as though I'm being stalled in my progress.
