I have been working at Walmart

Pros

having the advantage of sharing in profits. I like to idea of having medical benefits as a part-time employee. It would be nice if the benefits extended beyond the medical. It should include an option for life insurance.

Cons

I don't like the idea of companies of this caliber having to fatten their bottom line on the backs of employees, without extending full benefits to part-time status employees. Having the benefits would help employees take better care of their families. Companies at this level want the best employees, however, the employees are let holding the bag when there is a pressing need for other benefits beyond health coverage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put action behind your words. Always do what you can to fix problems before they become bigger. You to do preventive maintenance. Do more listening to the customers' concerns and seek to improve services. It would be a good idea to allow the customer to write a gratitude letter with an employee's name on it; in this way, the employee would receive proper credit for helping the customer have an outstanding customer service experience. Customer's get away with too much at these stores. The employees does not have anyone their size when the customer has a complaint, whether or not it is legitimate.

    Cons

    Support (Management) is lacking.."Open-door" policy is somehow forgotten..much goes without saying, and minimal communication between ranks of employees, etc..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would consider eliminating conventional methods of affirmative action within the management cadre/ranks on a store-by-store basis. It's not good business to eliminate the competitive side of market forces in the employee selection process of personnel hiring/promotion decision making outright.
