    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My fellow associates were very friendly, and my managers were very supportive. The benefits were decent, and the job itself was very easy.

    Cons

    The cons were mainly customers and the managers who seemed "out to get you" if they didn't like you they could ruin your career, and it's the same case with customers.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I got an interview in 2-3 days of applying. I only had one interview and got hired on the spot.

    Cons

    Being a cashier can be challenging when the store gets busy. You're also expected to maintain a friendly demeanor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put the starting of the next shift of an employee within 12 hours of their previous one.

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The job was very flexible, you learn alot of new things and how the retail world works. I wouldnt say its a career opportunity there but its definitely great experience to put down on the resume.

    Cons

    Customers were sometimes rude....but then again alot of employees were negative about the job so you just really have to stay positive yourself so that negative aura doesnt affect you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There were some great ones but for the not so great ones...be more sociable with your employees and have some respect and they will treat you well.

    I would have liked it better if I would have gotten hours. Time goes by quick because you are constantly busy.

    I worked at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best aspect of working for Walmart is definitely the people you get to work with. Most of the employees share a positive vibe and view the whole job with a sense of humor.

    Cons

    Low salary is the most negative aspect of employment with Walmart. I was not able to support myself with near full time hours at the base pay. The pay may be alright for a young adult going through school and still living with parents or maybe even living with several roommates, but definitely unable to go solo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have faith in your employees, learn and respect their individuality

    I worked at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management here was very laid back from what I saw. As a cashier I was started off at $8.40 an hour here in California and got more or less a $400 paycheck twice a month. Be prepared to be flexible what you work as because you will be running around the whole store doing anything you're told! Very kool atmosphere that's non-hostile! Just a pain because you will work a lot for that $8.40!

    Cons

    We wouldn't get enough customers and therefore didn't have enough money for man power to run the store up to its full potential. Sometimes we would get slammed with customers at a time and only have one person at a register and another at customer service! Also, since it was very lonely most of the time you'd get bored quickly. Not the ideal place to get a promotion. Also like any work place favortism lived there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change prices to lower competitive prices! Why spend 30 cents for a cucumber when i can get 10 for $1 across the street!
