    Great benefits! Flexible scheduling.

    Poor communication and inconsistent direction from upper management.

    Get on the same page. Either decide to follow company protocol 100% or not at all! Stop swinging back and forth.

    Current Employee - Overnight Support Manager in Escondido, CA

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    At this time, the money could be better. If one is willing to work and advance, the money will come. This is not an easy job, but it is very rewarding - especially when one accomplishes the assigned tasks.

    Cons

    A challenge is being able to bend one's self in a communication aspect in order to be on the same page as the customers, management and the associates - if communication is not one's strong suit, then it really needs to be an area where emphasis is placed on adapting and growing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider communication courses; please consider how others may see and hear how you communicate the items you delegate.
