  • Employee

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.

Good pay.

2.33

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don't say that you never lay people off when you do fire large groups of people and make up excuses to cover what you did.

I like about the employer

Pay.

I dislike about the employer

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

I like about the employer

Great Pay And Most Importantly You Can Show Managers Your Skills To Work As You Prepare Yourself For Management

I dislike about the employer

Being Able To Voice Your Opinion Is Kind Of Hard To A Group Of Management That May Not Care Too Much.. And This Is Only Stating Specific Walmart Stores Not All Stores As A Group...
