Be flexible. know how to count money. try your best to communicate with people with accents. make sure you know what different produce looks like in case they don’t have a PLU sticker (jicama or brussel sprouts compared to tomatillos). be able to follow rules and explain policies to customers. pay close attention to WIC training. and be diligent when the cash drawer is open (you will be trained on how to prevent being scammed).
You mostly need to have really good customer service. It helps if you pick up quickly on numbers for fruit and veggies but you learn that over time. As well as wic’s they are tricky at first but try to understand them asap. I would also recommend trying to make sure you bag items according to where they belong, freezer, pantry, beauty, etc. Try and be quick but friendly.
In order to succeed at Walmart, you must have the ability to work alongside others. You all work as a team to uplift one goal, that is to keep the customers happy. Of course there are other things too such as keeping your work space clean and organizing shelves, but helping customers is top priority when it comes to retail. You also need to be fast and efficient at what you do. There will be many tasks given to you and you are expected to complete them all in a timely and organized manner. Coming to work with a positive attitude is a must in this line of work.
Personally I think to succeed at Walmart you have to be flexible and open minded. Many positions are sometimes required or asked to do other tasks because they are short on staff or are really busy. You also need to be independent because some things have to be handled on your own.
To succeed at Walmart, you need to be a hard worker. I found that this meant to be on time, always available, an expert and having a good knowledge of your department. And taking leadership or going the extra mile to show that you are different.
Time management is huge in the role of a walmart department manager. Most of your work day will be completing tasks that have timed deadlines associated with them. Also being able to delegate work to associates under you in the department and knowing who is the best for the job.
Ask a lot of and be interested in areas of work. I didn’t accept the job for what I interviewed for, but I asked other HR reps questions after my interview about other areas hiring for my skill set and if I could set up interviews with them. Saves both of you a lot of work and shows you’re interested in doing something you like I’m a spot that fits. Continue to email and find a career path that fits after getting your foot in the door.
Well to succeed at Walmart, I think most people may already know like most other jobs is hard work. If you haven't worked in a deli before, just ask others that have it's probably one of the worst places to work at Walmart. I'm not complaining about the customers but the overall asset of the job itself is to overwhelming for one person to do and always being understaffed because no one wants to work there isn't always a good thing. With all jobs of course there are pros and cons, but all I have to say is hard work and perseverance to get through each day.
To succeed at working at Walmart it is important to be courteous to everyone even if they are one of those "rude customers". Always go to work in a good mood, and create a positive environment for your coworkers.
To succeed at Walmart you definitely need to be a people person, or at least have a high tolerance for people who disagree with you or policies. You just follow the notes you’re assigned and go above and beyond. Someone who always smiles and appreciates customers will do excellent here!!
To be successful at WalMart it takes being present, showing up for work everyday is a high priority. It also takes going above and beyond with customer service. That includes a high level of patience as some customers expect things to be done instantly which is not always the case.
