I worked at Walmart full-time (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.

    Former Employee - Store Management in Branson, MO
    Former Employee - Store Management in Branson, MO

    I worked at Walmart full-time (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...
