    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of great people. Many companies just pay lip service that the employees are 'the most valuable asset'. Here it is true. performance is recognized. If you are willing to commit , play well with others, the sky is the limit. Long term employees are held in esteem.

    Cons

    Seems big at first, but as you network and find your groove, it starts shrinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Toot Walmart's horn more in he media. You hear so much bad about Walmart in the press. The company gives so much back to the communities, green initiatives, solar power, bringing back jobs to the US, jobs for Vets, food bank donations, emergency support like during Katrina, Sandy, tornado devastation. Then there is the work the Foundation does too.

    Pros

    Advancement ... Anyway can become anything they want at Wal-mart long as they work hard. The benefits are pretty good also.

    Cons

    The store is very busy during the day which actually makes doing your job a little difficult because you are all ways being asked questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The job is not that difficult. It is kind of easy once you get the hang of it. Its a good place to work while you go to school.

    Cons

    They try hard to not let you have overtime. They don't like to put people on full time, but still get a good 32 plus hours regularly. Rude customers but that's in almost any job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to move good workers to full time. Cause if you do not those good workers will go somewhere else where they will give them full time. Moving a good worker from part time to full time will give them a incentive to stay and to continue doing goo work or maybe even better.
