Pros

Very friendly co-workers and management.
Excellent computerized training in the way WalMart runs, which tries to prepare you for any eventuality.
They do put on a heck of Thanksgiving spread.

Cons

The "season" does not include Christmas or New Year's -- just Thanksgiving and Black Friday. I guess if they they told you how short the season is, they would get fewer applicants.

    Pros

    Wal-Mart allows the bold to be promoted fairly easily with hard work and sometimes a willingness to transfer.

    Health insurance is very affordable.

    Pay is NOT as bad as people believe, especially if you have experience before being hired.

    Cons

    If the management team doesn't have the right attitude, the entire store can and will suffer. Morale, efficiency, and effectiveness all decline quickly.

    Sometimes there's just too much change to keep up with.

    The new pad system, cutting out department managers and giving each DM several departments but no more associates, is tough. In larger stores with large payrolls, this is tough, and in smaller stores, it's extremely tough if you're a department manager, ZMS, or even assistant manager. You'll go from supervisor to zoner, every single time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to have more home office executives to visit the stores, especially the smaller ones, instead of having messages relayed from managers and market managers. The turnover rate in management seems to be increasing because managers have a tough time adapting to the many changes the stores have enduring over the last few years.
