Pros

Career Opportunities couples with a culture of respect for everyone. Our Sr. Executives are open and do not use their positions to dominate conversattions or strong arm decisions.

Cons

Time - Work Balance, it can be dificult to start change with a good portion of leaders being long term Wal-Mart employees and promoted from within. Your are competing with programs they put in place and consider very good. New comers have a hard time adjusting to it's culture and pushback associated with very tenured associates (employees).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As the company continues to pursue new, fresh outside talent for it's middle management ranks, they need to have more openness to changes and challenges. Get involved with grass roots with middle managers as they are reporting to the old guard and feeling unwelcome at times. Sr. leadership appears to have a letigimate interest in recruiting and retaining outside talent but not so sure Jr. executives are on board.

    Pros

    The other workers are everyday people who work hard and are not thanked enough for it.

    Cons

    Upper management are dumber than a door nail, they are not willing to help out when needed and dont communicate with others. They think they are better than others and need to just treat us all equally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your head out your butt and do some real work. That means you need to stop acting like you are so much better and remember how it was when you where one of us.

    Pros

    The employee discount is a huge benefit to my family as it cuts down on the expenses, and they are a pretty friendly environment. Also, it is one of the better paid cashier positions in my area.

    Cons

    Unflexible scheduling. Only allowed to change availability in case of major life change. Also you sometimes feel as if you are just someone that can be let go at any time. If you ever are sick and need to call in, you have to call the 800 number to report it and then wait on hold for a long time to actually tell management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat us like we are important to the store and not just an expendable worker.
