I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Learn Walmart Way
Ability to learn from suppliers and co-workers
Work with high caliber people

Cons

Political environment
very MBA focused on education - not ability or expertise or experience
Diversity can be a plus or a negative

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look at the achievements of the people - not always the GPA or school - (not to say its not important) don't know very many Harvard grads that grew up shopping at Walmart, or shop at Walmart even after they came to work at Walmart Corporate. Need to relate to the Customer.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Undoubtedly, the people/associates who work in the stores are truly the heart of this company. Having worked in nearly a dozen different stores, it was always the associates that kept me going back to work each day.

    Cons

    Lack of commitment of upper echelon management to the associates. Though salary is a major concern for most in today's economy, most would also take less if they received more fair and consistent treatment from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horse...if you came up through the ranks, remember where you came from and who really got you there....stop believing in your own ego, and remember that the people who got you where you are today, are not any less by virtue of your position...

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work / life balance is great. 3 days on 3 days off. 12 hrs shifts. If you can handle walmart retail everything else is downhill.

    Cons

    Staffing issues. Difficult to fill positions for the entry level positions. Managers must run register. Unload trucks and get our work done as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to offer a more competitive wage for our associates
