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

Pros

-Nice people
-Management (some of them) seem to care about their employees quite a bit
-Can be enjoyable
-Starting pay was considerably higher than what I had expected beforehand
-Will take you back if you decide to leave

Cons

-Availability is key. They will come down on you hard if you try to change it.
-Movement around the company is slow.
-Scheduling is horrible. Almost no consideration for students' (such as myself) schedules.
-Cult-like worship of founder Sam Walton. You'll notice this right away after hire.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most managers, co-workers, and customers are nice to deal with. 401k, stock purchase plan, 10% discount on everything but food.

    Cons

    Some managers like to rule by fear and intimidation, it is horrible and crushes everyone's spirit. Pay is below industry standard and hours are inconstant. Managers (yes, I asked the store manager)refuse to replace or repair broken equipment, and it makes my job incredibly difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees!

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

    Pros

    none at this time thank you.

    Cons

    pay is not adjusted to time in your profession 20 yrs in retail and I get what I had 15 years ago?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    your paying me $9.40 to unload trucks and when I was a cashier at a 76 nearly 15yrs ago I was paid $9.50. Don't tell me Walmart and their billions can't pay like Costco does at $15 an hr. My raises go up along with the min wage. So people who are just hired on get the same pay as me? not a good system.
