Former Employee - Sales Associate in Macomb, IL
Former Employee - Sales Associate in Macomb, IL

I worked at Walmart part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very accommodating with scheduling and family obligations. Let you switch shifts with fellow employees. Let you work in another department when they were cutting hours so that an employee could pick up extra hours

Cons

Too many managers all calling the shots, constantly pulled in twenty different directions because they all wanted something different done right then and there. One manager would ask me to fill and end-cap with a specific product, then half way through with that task another manager would come by asking who told you to do that? Then would say I wanted this to go on there, you need to change it, once again, no communication, wasting time and aggravating employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate with each other, saves a lot of time and you won't frustrate your employees as much.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    career opportunities, yearly bonus, stable work environment, stock incentive

    Cons

    bureaucracy, dead weight, how long it take so get 3 weeks vacation, health plan is not great but ok, 45 hour work week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ability to get changes to applications quicker, cut the dead weight, give 3 weeks at 5 years like every other company and go back to a 40 hour work week.

    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Greenville, SC
    Current Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Greenville, SC

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

    Pros

    Assistants work a 3 day on, 3 day off schedule, nice to have three days off in a row. The people, most associates are hard working and want to do a good job---they just need good leadership and development. Health insurance started the first day of employment with salaried management, bonus is 5% of salary, room for advancement. 15% stock match, 401k.

    Cons

    Same thing that is great about three days off---the flip side is working three 12 hour days in a row. Too much to do and a constant change in direction at the store level is very frustrating, staffing the store and to be quite honest--doing job offers to new hourly associates at a very low wage. It's very embarssing. The inventory process is tedious and too many steps to get the product to the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the hourly employees a higher wage to start, offer health insurance to part-time employees. Reward good customer service with a gift card, t-shirt, some small reconition. Pay inventory associates and unloaders based on their production--give them a small bonus for meeting goals each day to be paid monthly. This would increase morale tremendously.
