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

    Pros

    The company does have some great associates that are dedicated and hard working

    Cons

    Work life balance
    Upper management does not care about the associates
    It is easy to move up really quickly in the company but it comes at a price (I.E. family time, your dignity etc..)
    Middle line managers are treated the worse (Assistant Managers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your associates better!!

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

    Pros

    Lots of room for advancement. Good feedback on job performance. Flexible schedule as long as your willing to be flexible as well

    Cons

    Large company means that small issues you may have get lost in the shuffle so don't expect a lot of hands on problem solving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really like most of management where I work an the only advice I would give to them is. That they need to work better together. Most of the time there's 3 or 4 managers that are nowhere near the same page and have different goals for the same associates

    Current Employee - Inventory Control Specialist in Salt Lake City, UT

    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.
