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

    Pros

    Been here for 2 years, started in the frozen/dairy department and now work as a certified optician. Moving up, flexible hours, good pay is great for a part time job while I work toward my college degrees to move up even further at Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy, but if you can manage your time and multi-task you will thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like a team, show them you are willing to work with and listen to them, not dictate, lead by example.

    Pros

    you get to meet new people.

    Cons

    this place has alot of cons but one is that management treats you like dirt and you probably will have to run multiple departments is they're short on associates.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Great pay for entry level positions Friendly and upbeat management Great opportunities to advance within the company Easy and open communication between associates and managers

    Cons

    A lot more walking than anticipated

    Advice to Management

    Maybe try to eliminate some of the go-backs before handing off the store to night crew on weekends. Ninety carts is just too much for two to five people to sort and take back out to the floor.

    Pros

    If you apply yourself and keep a good attitude it is easy to succeed.

    Cons

    It can get very busy and occasionally you are understaffed but the time flies and you are able to push the boundaries of what you are able to accomplish.

    Pros

    Exciting opportunities every day. The job challenges you every day and is constantly changing. As a manager, schedule is set with 4 days on and 2 days off. Great options for career advancement, especially if mobile.

    Cons

    Required to work overnights for a year at a time every couple of years. Pay is competitive, but for size of store and volume of customers/sales, should be well above the market.

    Advice to Management

    Pay management more than the fretail average to retain managers.

    Opportunities to grow and move but you must be willing to relo, flexibility to learn new things, new positions. Company benefits are numerous

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    The company has a great mission - to save people money so they can live better! This makes it easy to get out of bed in the morning, knowing that you can make a difference every day at work. There are also many opportunities to train into other parts of the organization and grow your career beyond your current role.

    Cons

    Depending on your team, you can either be working with people who espouse the core culture of the organization who are focused on the customer and who work well with each other - always with respect to the individual, or you could find yourself working with people who are not bought into the culture and are only out to advance their own personal agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on the long term. Invest in what makes a difference for your customer and for your associates and it will pay out in the long term.
