You don't really need any experience to work an entry level job here, unless it's something like deli or bakery. If you get hired to a department and hate it, management can usually move you to a different department. If you work 8 hours then you get an hour lunch and two 15 minute breaks. Of course working in any retail store (including Wal-Mart) is usually horrible and I have heard some horror stories, but as far as retail goes, I would say Wal-Mart is one of the better companies. Even as bad as it is, it's better than being unemployed.
This was somehow the only job I could get, even though I have a damn bachelor's degree from a state university. Even though I make a couple dollars over minimum wage it's not enough and I'm sinking into more and more debt. The company as a whole pretends like they care about their associates but store management will sometimes ignore you or treat you like you don't matter. Store management has unrealistic expectations of how much work you can get done while still constantly being made to drop everything you're doing to help a customer. And customers are slobs, leaving messes everywhere. You can make an aisle look beautiful and walk away for 5 minutes and come back to it trashed. Customers will often think you're an idiot that hasn't graduated high school. And 8 hours between shifts is not enough time to be able to sleep properly, but they don't care. If you can manage to get more than 30 hours a week then at least you can get insurance but the insurance sucks. And positions in some areas will leave you practically crawling to your car in pain after a shift.
Advice to Management
Appreciate employees for the hard work they do. If upper management had to go back to being a lowly employee for a year, they might realize that we deserve better pay.
