    Pros

    Great insurance with generous Holiday and personal vacation time.

    Cons

    Positions can be temporary based on customer contracts

    Advice to Management

    I wish I would have known that my customers contract was coming to an end, so that I could have applied for another position and avoided unemployment.

    Pros

    I love my job. I work inside Wal-Mart. I do not have a boss over my shoulder. I love the fact that we travel to different stores because I don't want anyone to trying to keep up with me. The pay is good. The hours are flexible. I like the later hours during the week because I don't have to be stuck in traffic.

    Cons

    I wish we get our health insurance back.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work

    Pros

    Took this position for some extra income. Fantastic pay. Great way to meet new people and get insiders on new products and recipes

    Cons

    All the rules, restrictions, and pressure from manager drain the fun out of the job. Its gets a little uneasy seeing seniors getting hired who can barely be on their feet all day or are not engaging club members

    Advice to Management

    More breaks would be appreciated. I arrived when they supposedly reduced it from two break times to one.

    Pros

    This place is great. Wonderful people, fun perks ($1 jeans Monday's, summer hours, etc.) the pay is pretty great depending on what you do (can't speak for all positions). I enjoy coming to work everyday. Can't say that for many jobs.

    Cons

    Third party broker so sometimes you're a middle man and your hands are tied waiting for someone else to assist you or give you the information you need. Also, a little more uniformity might help in certain areas.

    Advice to Management

    Have a meeting every so often to discuss upcoming transitions or product issues so everyone gets the same information at the same time and can ask questions.
