    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, indoors, and some nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Little actual hands on training. Thrown into situations to fend for yourself. Enough employees you kind of feel like just a number, at least to anyone outside your store. Feels like you can do nothing to change or improve upon policies/practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for employee opinions frequently and actually listen and put ideas into practice.

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    The only pros would be the opportunity to advance, the experience you will gain from working here, and they will even send you to school. Like i mentioned this job is really for someone enterinf the work industry and without a household to take care of.

    Cons

    The pay is not great, there's really not a team work environment people will throw you under the bus to make themselves look good, and your work load is very heavy. Management is very strict and careless at the same time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would not be so bad if the pay was better, but for the most part step up and properly train your employees.

    Pros

    Overtime Hours are great for extra money, during the holidays and at other times. Helps you save towards your goals and good discount for the staff.

    Cons

    The lack of sufficient compensation discourages employees from been better works an improvement in pay would ensure more stability in the work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better pay, compensation, health care and retirement benefits for your employees. Provide incentives to workers to attend management classes to build their skills.

    Pros

    iF you make a mistake, you do not get fired right away! 401k, health benefits, pretty relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Backstapping employees to a degree. Employees dont want to teach you anything for fear you will replace them as time goes on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that you are ENSURING that youre mechanics are TRAINING the helpers, and that you mandatorily enter apprentices in to the plumbing training classes to make sure thy get a career..not just a job.

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

    Pros

    Long tradition and core values of what made this the number one company n the world. New leadership which will hopefully get the ship righted and back on course.

    Cons

    Mr. Sam would be rolling in his grave if he knew the tragedies that are being committed today with "blackmailing" suppliers with markdown monies requests, cutting long term associates just to cut overhead and losing years of experience in the trade off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose your roots!

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

    Pros

    Depending on your position, you get to learn different skills. Benefits include: healthcare (full-time), quarterly bonuses, discounts. The better pro is the flexible schedule for school. Managers work with your schedule for school.

    Cons

    Blame. Some supervisors will blame you, for the mistakes of other employees. Management is not knowledgeable to a certain extent. CSMs are very hypocritical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management is very simple, promote the deserving people. Some people get promoted just because they like the person and not the people who can actually perform the job well.

    Pros

    Benefits and discounts are outstanding!!! Walmart really knows how to take care of their managers financially.

    Cons

    Associates working at Walmart need classes on ethics, treating each other with dignity and respect and to be thankful they have jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the office, get on the floor and talk to your associates.
