    Pros

    The discount is not that bad. The health coverage is not that bad.

    Cons

    Management does not back up the hourly employees what so ever and they only look out for them selves.

    Advice to Management

    Back up your hourly employees.

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

    Pros

    Walking distance from home and customer's are appreciative and friendly. Lot's of regular customers that remember your name and are sweet.Most people can get hour's that can work around there family.

    Cons

    They will hire anyone. Personally have seen over 45 people transfer, or quit in last 2 years.twice the work and pay is sad.short staffed because of low wage and high turn over.employees that suck up there pride and stick it out are expected to do 2 peoples jobs and train new employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't wait to tell employees that they are doing a great job until they are ready to quit. Wages for new hires being the same or higher than employees who have been able to survive the stress for years is sad.

    Pros

    I had to add in filler words because it said at least 20 words I have nothing positive about my interview experience...

    Cons

    Break down in communication within Wasted gas They had me wait 15 mins just to tell me that they were looking for day shift...my availability was nights only 😑 like they scheduled me for an interview knowing that my availability didn't match with what they were looking for.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other so you want have potential employees driving out to the store for nothing.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A bonus every couple of months.

    Cons

    Lowest paying job I've ever had. Terrible insurance. Promotions are based on politics not skill or knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    The store manager is the most clueless one of the bunch.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get long breaks, and after 3 months you get a store discount.

    Cons

    Almost everything is wrong with this store in Flanders NJ. The store manager treats the associates like filth below her feet, also the management is totally incompetent. They cut associate's hours, and then expect them to do multiple jobs, all at once. Most of the time the store looks like a disaster,because it's understaffed. And just the way they treat the workers, is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers with RESPECT!!!.. Don't cut hours, if the worker wants to work a certain amount of hours. Care about your staff !!! instead of the store, the customers, and how much money your making !!.. YOUR STAFF IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE STORE, AND IT'S STARTING TO CRUMBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!..

    I worked at Walmart (Less than a year)

    Pros

    team environment, willing staff, hardworking, I can not think of any other pros about Walmart it was not a very good experience for me

    Cons

    low pay long time to advance, no insurance benefits till you were 6 months in. Then they took out of your pay not a very good match up

    Advice to Management

    to stop making people pay to wear casual clothing on friday and stop all the company sponsored charities it seemed like all they did was pay you low wages but asked you for donations every week

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Some are so incredibly patient. Customers can be a real joy too. They will hire anyone.

    Cons

    Many are overworked due to people continuously quitting. The cash registers and self-check machines needed to be removed or replaced ages ago. Card-reader failure is a constant.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some money repairing or replacing faulty equipment

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people you work with will almost always be real friends who last through the years. The employee discount is great, even though at the time it didn't work on groceries. The 20% for Black Friday coupons were always amazing and helpful.

    Cons

    Staffing was minimal, hours were minimal, and stress was maximum. If you're hired for one department, you will work every department when their 1 employee ultimately calls out or leaves. High employee turnover. Management doesn't honor schedule requests, usually. Customers are all kinds of horrible and abusive, and management rarely has your back. Overall a high stress, low payout environment.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like they matter. If you have to hire only one or two people per department, make sure those people are treated well enough that they're going to stay.
