    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Steady paycheck
    Benefits (only if you're full time)

    Cons

    Impress game. Managers want to only impress the store manager the store manger wants to impress corporate so its always a bunch of miserable people everyday trying to reach company goals. All about numbers in the millions while you making $500/900 every 2 weeks.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Liked All Of The Employee Discounts. Liked the BBQs, Contestsand Drawings, as well as all the little themed parties in the breakroom, made us feel more "humanized". Liked being able to approach some of the management (wished all were approachable)

    Cons

    "Hard for employees to get their breaks. Employees shoudnt have to pay for their uniforms ( shirt and pants ) Company should pay for employees one pair of ortho friendly shoes and socks, All Cashier's should be able to have a stool to sit on to alleviate the stress of standing."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Stop Barking at your EMPLOYEES!!!, When YOU Spass Out!!!"

    I have been working at Walmart full-time

    Pros

    Huge income and advancement potential if your willing play their games.

    Cons

    Management has a base work week of 50+ hours with the expectation to work beyond that regularly. Promotions are purely based on popularity and the buddy system from first line supervisors through district managers. Positions are being eliminated frequently adding pressure to assistants and almost eliminating the chances for management promotions. Work life balance is non-existent beneath the store manager level. Education is neither valued, required, or even desired. Even short periods of illness results in managers being terminated. Forget holidays permanently if you come aboard.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Advancement possible but must often be willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Must always watch your back. May be used as fall guys when company is looking to take out other players. Open door policy is not confidential but often goes back to person you are reporting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Copy anything you sign for your own records and watch your back! You can and will be used as a fall guy any time the company feels the need.

    Not enough hours and the schedule was crazy. You never had the same shift in the same order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more hours.
