    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.

    Former Employee - Service Technician in Mansfield, TX

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The family feeling between associates
    Job security
    Easy to transfer within your store

    Cons

    Too many levels of management
    Managers are never on the same page
    While raises can be decent, starting pay is usually minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get on the same page! Nothing was worse than me getting in trouble for doing what one manager says, and the other manager not wanting it done that way.In my department I had 7 managers over me and 8 actual associates. There is no need for that many levels of management. While I am happy they promote people to management you end up with more people standing around telling you what to do than workers there are to do that request. We could really do with just 2 or 3 managers per department. When I quit there was a manager inside, a support manager for her, a manager outside, a support manager for him, a zone manager and department manager. It just ends up being to confusing for the associates to follow all of them, one would want you to do one thing, then the other would want you inside to work, then the zone manager would come buy and need you in the back to help ect. ect. You ended up getting in trouble for not helping the one you didn't choose to help.

    Other than that, I really enjoyed my time at Walmart. The people are awesome, I made lifelong friends there and I'm not saying any of the managers are bad people and they are just doing what they are told as well. I'm just questioning the actual structure of the management
