    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and management. Will never disregard safety rules and there are generally lots of hours/shifts available and good upward mobility.

    Cons

    They'll always be understaffed leading to everyone being over-worked. Paying close to as minimum wage as possible and hiring more part-time workers to avoid giving health benefits to full-time workers. The understaffing can lead to frustrated customers and almost consistently terrible customer interactions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop understaffing the front end of stores and hire more full-time workers.

    Pros

    - Department Managers were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and organized, giving clear directions to duties during your shift either in person, or written in detail on department whiteboard.

    - Employee Discount Card (substantial savings over time).

    - Very diverse and friendly atmosphere throughout the store.

    Cons

    - Unfortunately, encountered some unprofessional duty managers that were unorganized in the way they directed associates. (Had me complete tasks I wasn't trained to do before providing proper training).

    - Lack of recognition and appreciation from (some) higher management.

    Advice to Management

    During my time of employment, there were seemed to be a new duty manager in charge every few months. Constant change caused interruption in direction to employees as each manager seemed to have their own way of directing duties and responsibilities.

    Consider training higher level managers (duty and general managers) to be a bit more courteous to associates.

    Pros

    There can be some really good workers there. If you are able to keep your head down and work efficiently, everything will be fine.

    Cons

    Sadly, there are generally more bad apples than good ones. Staff are able to wander around and generally nothing will happen. They may get 'warned' but nothing will happen after that.

    Advice to Management

    Step up your game, don't be afraid to work through a few bad ones in order to stop the good ones from leaving all the time.

    Pros

    - 10% discount on all merchandise (except clearance)
    - Yearly bonus if your Walmart store has a surplus of profits
    - Open-door policy is strictly followed by managers and they care about your concerns
    - Yearly evaluation and increase of pay up to additional 30~ cents…

    Cons

    In this specific store, storage space is a problem. Back area for dairy, frozen, produce, and meat are often congested.
    - Assistant managers who don't usually overlook produce have high expectations for the produce department.
    - Employees call in sick regular, will probably end up working by yourself.
    - Management wants associates do a million task at once.
    - Hiring process take so long sometimes up to 2 months

    Advice to Management

    Management should help associates sometimes to see how to go about a procedure, or give better advice.
