Former Employee - Store Manager in Kansas City, KS

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.

    Current Employee - Shift Manager in Derby, KS

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many positions available within the company at the store level, market level, Home Office, distribution centers, on the road, and so much more. Insurance, 401K, stock purchase program and many benefits available. The company donates a great deal to the community and has Associate-in-Need programs to help Associates who have experienced a financial tragedy.

    Cons

    Base pay at the lowest level is minimum wage. Associates work hard for very little pay at hourly level. Base pay for management is somewhat competitive, but no annual raises after the Assistant Manager Position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is an opportunity to improve the overall pay for all levels (hourly and salary) of Associates within the store; not only to attract but keep valuable and hardworking people.
