Pros

I was paid, it is hard to think of anything else. If you can turn a blind eye to the plight of the vast majority of people who work there you will be okay.

Cons

Employees are not valued - referred to as 'bodies' by management. Hours are long. No work/life balance. You are expected to work way longer than your so called regular hours. The quality of management around me was dire.

Advice to Management

Pay shareholders less and workers more.

    Pros

    Co-workers are mostly friendly and easy to get along with.
    This is a safe job for those that are willing to work hard and smile happily while slowly dying on the inside.

    Cons

    While preaching about the importance of customer service, this company fails on all fronts. Profits are the ONLY priority. Sales increase every year while payroll decreases. Profits will come at the expense of the average worker. Maintaining adequate customer service is nearly impossible, and angry customers are a frequent problem.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more associates. This will allow time to provide customer service as well as time to train associates to perform their jobs correctly. Furthermore, shelves will be stocked, lines will shorten at the registers and sales will rise. Small term losses will provide a firm foundation for long term gains.


  2. Management at their retail stores is NOT for everyone

    Pros

    If you are a day shift manager or assistant manager, you work for 3 days, and you get 3 days off. You get a 10 percent discount off of most items in the store. For nights, you work 4 days on, and 4 days off.

    Cons

    For the above positions, you will work minimum 12 hour days, and sometimes you will have to come on your days off.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to create programs that are more structured so that associates, and management can have a better understanding and ability to deal with the day to day tasks of working for and being at Walmart.
