    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Full time benefits. The associates are great to work with. Walmart family is pretty awesome. It's a good place to get started if you been down and out of a job.

    Cons

    Too many Chefs not enough Indians. Management is givin so much to do with less sales associates to do it. Hiring less and less people to help run the store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to hire more associates. The more u don't hire worse it's gonna get. Quit being so cheep!!!

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Flexible hours, they work with your schedule better than most places. Lots of different managers and personalities (good place to chill and hide). interesting co-workers. lots of high school dropouts and drugies. Illegitimate relationships everywhere you look if your into that? It's real hard to get fired. Nobody gets canned except for stealing.

    Cons

    Pay sucks, no job promotion, no overtime. Can't survive on the wage. Lots of single moms working near 40 hrs/week getting welfare, foodstamps, SSI, medicade. Lots of handicap people who make more than the normal ones doing most of the work?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Raise the price on the merchandise to give the hourlies a raise. We'd work harder for just a little more money. Higher people with job experience and those who have a HS diploma. Give new people benefits right away.

    Pros

    Ok pay for a starter job. Flexible shifts.

    Cons

    You pretty much never get to 40 hrs. a week, and management can sometimes be very poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your most valued workers. They are the driving force of the corporation, and your bonuses.

    Pros

    The best thing about working for walmart is the benefits and the bonuses we get every 3 months

    Cons

    You can challenge yourself by learning where everything is inside the store. And most holidays should be spent with families instead they make you work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to share advice with upper management is the management in my location doesn't seem like management at all and they don't appreciate all that hard work we do. All besides Mrs Ann orrington and Mr Chris Dietrich.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Good leadership structure. The flow of leadership is good. see comment below on how they react to this chain of leadership. Rule by fear is the ultimate outcome. do this or you will lose your job. a simple explanation would be better in understanding the why.

    Cons

    micromanagement at its finest. The next level managers are scared for their jobs so they micromanage everything they can. This creates friction between store and market level associates.
