  • 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.

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.

Inclusive/Diverse

Yes!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Take responsibility for reprimanding when needed. Don't expect underlings to do it.

I like about the employer

Usually try to work with you when family requires it.

I dislike about the employer

Not much recognition to loyal employees.

Horrible

2.56

Company culture

Terrible, Management only looks out for themselves. If they don't like you they will single you out

Support from Management

Terrible communication

Overall Compensation for your work

Every position is underpaid for the amount of work that you do

Job security

If a manager does not like you they will do everything they can to get rid of you. Whether you quit or get fired

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stop picking favorites and treat your employees with respect

I like about the employer

It's easy to get your foot in the door and move up if you work hard

I dislike about the employer

Being singled out because a certain manager does not like me. I work hard every day and got told I didn't do enough and asked why I am even working there

  • 20.Jan 2017
  • Employee

Teamwork

5.00

Support from Management

When expectations exceed possibility, management steps in to help.

Teamwork

Teamwork builds family.

Gender Equality

Definitely. I work in, what would usually be considered, a man's job. The responsibilities do not change with gender. You either can or cannot do the job. Period.

Attitude towards older colleagues

We have several senior colleagues. All are treated with the same regard.

Career Development

We do a great job of training and advancement at the corporate level but the field has improved in those areas during my tenure here.

Overall Compensation for your work

I am compensated just fine with wages and benefits sufficient for my lifestyle.

Eco-consciousness

Definitely, and always improving.

Work-Life Balance

No overtime. No pressure. And family is always considered first.

Company Image

Yes.

Job security

Job stability is only as good as the company and the employee. My company is strong and I am old-school dedicated, hard-working, and honest. If that translates to 'stable,' then, yes.

Handicap Accessibility

We have many people with disabilities. The company does a great job to provide assistance when possible.

Workplace Safety

The company does a great job with safety, compliance, and annual mandatory training in these aspects.

Challenging Work

The work is challenging and I am proud in completion, production, and seeing my customers walk away with a smile.

Inclusive/Diverse

Absolutely.

I like about the employer

The company is discreetly benevolent, cares about the communities where facilities are located, and supports employees wanting to live better.

I dislike about the employer

"Too many chiefs, not enough Indians."
