Advice to ManagementAdvice

I hear alot of complaints from associates and DM about being held accountable for notes not being done, to many outs in their areas,freight not binned,just everyday routines,but if they deligate these tasks and they follow up and they are still not getting done then that person should be held accountable not the person that deligated it. They also complain about having to help in other areas then still have to make sure that their areas are complete and now have to do their daily tasks in less time and if not then they are held accountable. They want to be able to come to work make sure that their areas are up to standards then they have no problem going to help out in other areas. They also feel that alot of associates are in the wrong area, or they don't like that area. we need to put associates in areas where they can excell not fail. Every associate has their own strenghts we just need to find what it is.And yes everybody needs to work toghether. Team Work!!! FIRED UP!!!!!!

    Do not work here unless you are a desperate COBOL or mainframe programmer.

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

    Pros

    -You get paid every two weeks.
    -You get to walk around like somebody special telling everyone you work for a massive global company.
    -You get the chance to volunteer for non profits and Walmart pays them for your work. God knows they treat some random charity better than the employees.
    -You get to call yourself a "management employee" which allows you to talk down to lowly hourly employees whenever you are feeling used.
    -You get two weeks vacation per year. Even though you worked an extra 4 months this year, that two weeks still feels nice.
    -After 90 days, you get an employee discount card that saves you 10% on a bunch of items you never would buy such as camping stoves, sewing supplies and lettuce.

    Cons

    -Management lies to potential employees about the technology they will be using.
    -You will be introduced to and forced to learn 40 year old technology.
    -The bathrooms in David Glass Technology Center are horrific. They have about 50 stalls always full of defecating employees with NO VENTILATION! You have to have the lung capacity of Michael Phelps to use the urinal.
    -The benefits, which are already HORRIBLE, get cut every year as the prices go up 40+%, but remember, you get to work for Walmart.
    -Lots of hours. Be expected to put in 45-60 hours a week with NO compensation other than the privilege of working for Walmart.
    -Working in a massive two-story building with NO WINDOWS.
    -You pay more for a Sam's card than if you walked in off the street. Avoid the "benefits" if you do decide you are desperate enough to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't dump what you don't want to do on someone else. Actually listen to your workers. Don't expect undying servitude.
