I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good pay, stores still have caring culture and help each other out. Assistants and Shift Managers have decent work life balance and are protected. Lots of opportunity to promote if you have the retail mindset and people skills.

Cons

Work life balance for store managers is non existent. You earn every penny as the Store Manager due to lack Assistants and direct reports to delegate to. Inconsistant Inventory flow from Corporate pushes makes running the programs very difficult. Work based scheduling has not progressed and fails to set the store up for success. Talent pool internally is drying up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the freight flow right and allow the stores to run the programs with accurate goal hours to handle the work load. Other companies have figured it out - get on board and stop promising things that don't ever happen. Trust and inspire your Managers and stop the constant beat downs.
