    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly Atmosphere, great opportunity to learn a wide variety of retail sales areas. Company give a 10% discount to associates after 90 days.

    Cons

    Poor Training, Too high of Demands per Associate, Annual pay raises are capped at 50 cents, Benefits package is weak, the health insurance offered does not cover much. Open door policy is a joke, the store managers take it serious, but above them management just ignores you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walmart needs to hire more associates to ensure that all items are stocked, the store is clean, and that customers are taken care of. Provide an alternate route through the open door.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Meet new people and can network with consumers.

    Cons

    Management don't know how to talk to people and when customers stressed them out, they take it out on employees. One of big reason for high turnover and pay isn't great for the amount of business they do and things you have to do.

  3. Meh.

    Former Employee - Walmart Cashier in Gibsonton, FL

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

    Pros

    Pros? Gosh, are there any? Hmm. One hour unpaid lunch is nice, compared to some places that offer only half an hour. The other employees at my store were generally nice. They also have a very flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Everything else aside from the above was awful. I was told during interview that my position would be full time, and when they eventually made the offer, they changed it to part time, knowing by now that I'd just moved halfway across the country and was desperate for a job. Walmart customers are disgusting and rude in general. Many of them were drunk and I had to deny them to buy alcohol (and deal with their verbal abuse). My employment was terminated because I got sick with a sinus infection, double ear infection, and strep throat all at the same time. It's likely I caught that at work, too. As a small woman, I was also VERY uncomfortable with leaving my shift at 11:30PM and walking alone all the way across the dark parking lot. I was always worried that I was going to get mugged or raped, or worse, just leaving work. And there is no option to park closer to the store, either. Those spots are for customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice for management. Pretty much everyone is familiar with Walmart's workplace culture and customer base at this point. I make a habit of never shopping there, ever, if I can possibly avoid it.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with great people.

    Cons

    The people you work for are not exactly well equipped to run a store of the volume that Walmart produces. Also, since Sam's family has never been inside of a Walmart and all they care about is their bottom line, the company has shifted focus away from helping customers to 'what are we doing for the shareholders today?' This is further backed up by them eliminating management positions this year based off of a payroll decision and not an instock decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good for starter Sales/Retail experience, but jump to another opportunity with another company as soon as you can.

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

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice, if you gotta buy your lunch when you work, walmart is great for that.
    When I worked my minimum wage was 8, I'm told it has changed to 9 now, and next year will be 10.
    I had a nice manager

    Cons

    If you work as a cashier, they have you do all sorts of other jobs
    Not enough training unless you ask them over and over and over again for it
    When you messup because you hadn't gotten enough training OTHER managers (not my main one) would get upset with you.
    some managers do not get to you in quick enough time for new change for your register
    sometimes even if you have a doctors note and are a door greeter and have to sit down, they will not allow you to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs more patience, Less expectations, more of a training program.
    Some workers especially young ones, if this is their first job, their minds are not going to be the most effecient, nor shall their work.
    So patience would be a very good thing to have.
    Any worker who has shown to have trouble completing their job OR doing it effeciently should have a 1 on 1 talk to figure out why, and to find a solution.
    The worker should not be punished for that UNLESS the reasons as to why they're not doing their job right or not completing it is due to ; Talking with friends about nonsense ; Arguing with ANYONE ; not even caring to pay attention (now some people have problems with that, some people do care to pay attention, but have trouble doing so, especially those whose this is their first job.) .

  10. Management does not communicate with each other at all and assign multiple tasks and then you get ridiculed.
