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

Pros

Great benefits, even for part-time associates. Usually great co-workers. My experience with my managers has been, I would say, 75% positive. Wal-Mart is truly a family, and they will always help you out if your family has a personal crisis. (Losing house, major illness, etc.)

Cons

Customers have a high expectancy for you. I would say it's way higher than most other retails. You will get yelled at for things you have no control over. Work load is beyond heavy at some points.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell your associates when they do a good job, and stand behind them. Yes, the customer is sometimes right, but not always. There is nothing worse than telling a customer no because policy says that we absolutely cannot do something and the manager comes right behind you and makes you do it. I feel so belittled when that happens.

    Pros

    Pays better than other retail jobs and far better than unionized companies.

    Cons

    Seems that only a select few give more than 100% of their effort meaning lots of things don't get done and blame is pointed at overnight associates.
