    Working at walmart felt like working with your family

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPretty good salary. Benefits are great, 401K, stock options with company matching, health benefits, discount, bonuses, ect. It feels like family.

    ConsThe hours are not the greatest. Work every holiday except Christmas day. The management team is not always the friendliest or willing to talk about problems you may have, or help solve situations, depending on the store you work at.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your associates more. Sometimes they can help you solve some of the opportunities the store may have.

    Great opportunities

    Merchandise Supervisor (Current Employee)
    Goddard, KS

    ProsMy managers, zone and assistant, are very kind and professional. They work with you when you have a schedule change request and are open to suggestions to make Walmart better. I like my job, my coworkers and managers create a fun, but professional environment. I feel like I have an excellent chance to move up in the company.

    ConsBeing professional and polite to customers who are very challenging. They may be having a bad day, so I don't take it personally. Getting our jobs done is difficult because there are not enough workers to get it done. We are constantly getting pulled from our jobs to help in grocery and the check outs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire enough people to get the job done. My departments would be a lot neater, well zoned and well stocked if we had enough people to help all over the store. To hire and retain quality workers you may need to raise the pay. We cannot find anyone to fill a spot in the apparel department. Our personnel coordinator says the last good one that applied, failed her drug test. The others seem to not have any work ethics. Turnover costs money, is it really cheaper than paying good employees a good wage, thus attracting more good employees?

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My experience was awesome. It was full of fun, learning and challenges with some very special customers/co-workers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEveryone loves shopping at Walmart so there is always people coming in and going out. You get to meet new people and help in making their day by showing them you appreciate their business. Giving them good customer service and making them want to come back and shop with you often. You have the opportunity to advance in the company and also build strong bonds within the store and sometimes long lasting friendships.

    ConsDidn't enforce good training. When I first started I hated it because the main ones that were supposed to help were the most discriminating and unwilling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter screening during hiring, not just picking people because you need to fill space or because they look good. People that care about providing excellent Customer Service and are genuine about it.
