Having to work on the Major holidays is difficult, however I knew this was part of the job when I signed on.

    Pros

    - If you get a salary job then you are set and as long as you don't do anything stupid you wont get fired even if you do a bad job.
    - Great to have a resume
    - They help out the community one big one is "children miracle network"
    - Many chances to move up if you work for it

    Cons

    - If you are salary you must work a minimum of 45 hours a week.
    - Pay is little compared to other major companies
    - Little Vacation time here it is as 1 week year one, 2 weeks year two, 3 weeks after seven years and 4 weeks after 15 years of service.
    - They try to tell you that the Incentive is part of your base salary to make your overall pay look higher. Incentive (profit sharing) is not guaranteed income. At best you will get 60% to 80% of what they tell you.
    - Walmart is a Everyday low price so they cut back on a lot of thing to save money so supplies and other tools can be hard to get.
    - Integrity is a big thing at Walmart but yet lots of people have integrity issues and management looks the other way even if you have proof and open door about the issue. The only time that management reacts is if you steal or if they want to find a reason to let you go. I have never seen a salary associate get fired over performance issues in the last 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire people that are dead weight to the company, do not just say you care about the employees show that you care with your actions and promotions. If you have issues with an associate tell them so that the associate has a chance to correct the issue at hand do not wait for evals.
