Company Culture

Too much work, not enough people

Support from management

They want the work done, but won't get enough help and they don't help.

Teamwork

Everyone is self absorbed

Freedom to work independently

I'm always by myself

Internal Communication

No communication

Gender Equality

They expect women to pull pallets of freight that weighs hundreds of pounds, with no help.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Age does not matter

Career Development

Depends on who likes you, not how well you perform your job duties

Overall compensation for your work

Too much for one person to do.

Office / Work Environment

Hostile sometimes, but nothing is done about it.

Work-Life Balance

Never have days off together. Have to work every Saturday.

Company Culture

Moral is very low in most stores. The work load has become increasingly impossible and the employees have gotten less and less. There's very little appreciation, and the only time you hear from the Store Mgr, is when something needs to get done or your in trouble for something.

Support from management

Most of Mangement couldn't do our job, and most don't understand what should get done on a daily basis or what has to happen in order to get it done. It's usually just expected.

Teamwork

We work as a team within our areas or we'd never get anything done.

Freedom to work independently

I pretty much work by myself.

Internal Communication

There's no communication. You usually get different direction from several different people, or 3 people will come and tell you the same thing.

Gender Equality

The only ones that get more than a 2% raise are men.

Career Development

It's very easy to move up in the company, if you want the headache.

Overall compensation for your work

That last 2 years the majority of employess have only gotten a 2% raise, if that.

Environmental Friendliness

We do a lot of recycling.

Work-Life Balance

I often don't sleep well, worrying about the next day.

Job Security

I know I'm dispensable. Years ago I never felt that way.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Moral needs to improve.

What I like about the company

My vacation time.

What I dislike about the company

No help. To much put on the Dept. Mars. No incentive. No appreciation.

Company Culture

Wal-mart is a mixed bag. Some good, some not so good.

Support from management

Wal-mart is a mixed bag. Some good, some not so good.

Challenging Work

Janitorial work is not challenging. Dealing with customers and other staff can be.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Those stupid vests ... if you must compel your staff to wear an article of clothing declaring that they are proud to work there, then you really can't expect them to be proud. And many are not. If they were, wouldn't turnover be lower?

What I like about the company

Wal-Mart is flexible, and offers an employee discount.

What I dislike about the company

The recent decision to restrict gun sales to customers aged 21 or older. This is a virtue-signalling publicity stunt. Very shallow, phony and stupid.
