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

Pros

*Tasks are relatively simple to learn
*Better pay then fast food
*You get 30min-hour lunch depending on how long your shift is including one to two 15min breaks
*30% off discount card after three months of working there
*You get to meet a lot of people

Cons

*Seems like everyone is being hired as part-time or being demoted to part-time
*The customers. You'll never see so many POS that think you should be lucky to lick the grime off their boots. They'll usually be the ones to sour your day. Their word is valued over yours.
*Walmart seems to be a haven for kleptomaniacs and your bonuses are affected by how much shrinkage (loss) your store has.
*If you have a bad manager or fellow co-workers you will not enjoy this job. It's like High School all over again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let your employees know that they're more valuable than the word of one angry customer. Find something...anything to help the managers lose that dead eye glaze that they seem to have. I know some must feel burned out and dissatisfied with their current jobs but to have so many formally nice employees turn into asses as managers means either a wizard is sucking out their souls or you need to send them on vacation. Happy managers = happy employees!

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

    Pros

    My team is very close and we hangout a lot.

    Cons

    I make a wage I cannot live on without overtime for which I get yelled at on the clock for which takes up time to do my job making me stay later and get overtime.
    Management likes to just say "Go faster", but never gives any ideas on how to or talks about issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set aside time to actually talk to your employees. A lot of employees feel that the open door thing doesn't work and that they want management to take a more active roll.
    Don't make Myshare the first thing to cut when something bad happens.
