    Current Employee - Customer Service Associate in Brea, CA

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    It all depends on manage,emt in your store. I have been lucky with flexible scheduling. You also get a quarterly bonus after working there for about 9 months.

    Cons

    Dependent on management, there is a lot of favortism. Your district manager doesn't give a damn about you either or your store manager

    Full time hours but classified part time so to not get full benefits

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Depending on your position, you get to learn different skills. Benefits include: healthcare (full-time), quarterly bonuses, discounts. The better pro is the flexible schedule for school. Managers work with your schedule for school.

    Cons

    Blame. Some supervisors will blame you, for the mistakes of other employees. Management is not knowledgeable to a certain extent. CSMs are very hypocritical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management is very simple, promote the deserving people. Some people get promoted just because they like the person and not the people who can actually perform the job well.
