Pros

The best aspect of working for Walmart is definitely the people you get to work with. Most of the employees share a positive vibe and view the whole job with a sense of humor.

Cons

Low salary is the most negative aspect of employment with Walmart. I was not able to support myself with near full time hours at the base pay. The pay may be alright for a young adult going through school and still living with parents or maybe even living with several roommates, but definitely unable to go solo.

Advice to Management

Have faith in your employees, learn and respect their individuality

    Pros

    It's the largest retailer and has multiple career opportunities.

    Cons

    On the other hand, it's a no frills company and some the cost saving measures are over the top.

    Advice to Management

    Loosen the restrictions on raises.

    Pros

    You can make great friends, as long as you don't let yourself in the stupid gossip circles.

    Cons

    You can get coached if people you work with aren't doing their job even if you are so they can "make a point" that you are a "team"

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your associates, make time for them, be very firm but fair, know how to deal with the individual, don't assume everyone is the same, get to know your associates, don't just yell because you think it will get things done. Don't become a monster just because of your position, please remain a person and have a heart. It's not just about your bonus.
