I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is steady, and if there is a problem, management wants it taken care of right away.

Cons

"People of Wal-Mart"
Advancing to store management from Associate ranks is difficult. It is partly because pay rate is lower for longer hours of work without breaks. Also, that it hardly happens. Wal-Mart trains outside individuals.
They continuously trim medical insurance benefits.
They do not hire full-time associates.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reestablish an entry level tier of full-time associates.
Advance hard charging Associates to Store Management.

    Pros

    - reasonable breaks and lunches
    - the staff there are generally very friendly and understanding
    - you'll get a 10% discount card after working there for several months
    - you get a good gauge on what prices of items are
    - you can usually find a location within very close proximity. I've only know one person to have to drive a good hour to get to work. Personally, 15 minutes max.
    - Customers are generally friendly if you take the time to make small talk

    Cons

    - There are some extremely unpleasant people who come through the lines, but you learn to not let them get to you.
    - There's a lot going on in the store, and sometimes, as the final step of a persons shopping experience, you definitely get to feel it; mismatched prices, discontinued items....etc
    - you never really get an advantage on the sales and clearances. In fact if you are working the shift in which the store puts out the clearance, you can't even get your hands on any of it since you're on the clock
    - When I stopped working, they discontinued by 10%

    There's honestly a lot of bad to this job, but hey, it's a lifeline that keeps your head afloat during bad times, so it's faiy

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
