Pros

Once you hit the three month marker, you receive a discount card for certain items at 15% off. After you've hit the yearly mark, you can get a raise of not more than 40 cents and health insurance. There are some nice people there, but they are hard to come by.

Cons

The management at Wal-Mart sucks!! They do not communicate efficiently with each other, which is something that you absolutely need in a big retail environment. If you are a floor working, you will have 3 tiers of management above your head, so if you do something wrong, three people will most likely come and yell at you.

Advice to Management

Communication, communication, communication. Communicate nicely with the floor workers, communicate with your peers, and communicate with the customers. No use making everyone feel bad just cause you can.

    Pros

    The people are generally very friendly and supportive, usually willing to help out whenever and wherever they can. The company has grassroots meetings to invite employee input on needed changes and ideas and gives cost of living raises in addition to the general raise schedule.

    Cons

    The insurance is based upon catastrophic coverage rather than general need coverage. This leaves the average person paying more in doctor appointments than the insurance company. Get in trouble for working overtime unless planned.
