Current Employee - Customer Service Manager in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good distance from my house
SOME good associates

Cons

Management is little to no help (and I am CSM).
Hiring process is a joke (a lot of unprofessional high school graduates).
Associate appreciation is only shown when Market managers and other high level managers come visit.
No overtime is given (for the store I work at anyway).
All the talk about team work is out the door when your done with orientation.
Orientation needs a huge improvement (outdated computer training).
Morale is at an all time low.
If you do become anything more than a regular floor associate, skills go out the window. Either you be a punching bad for the store manager or get fired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to your associates, a job is more than just coming to work. You have to actually work with each other to get things done.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    its work. you get a pay check. its also pretty easy to get a job there. although theyll probably kick you in the first 6 months. because theyll leave you temporary.

    Cons

    is always under staffed and they expect all employees to pick up the slack. they dont respond at all to advise or criticism. they may hire a lot of people but they let go just as many. by which i mean they have i fast turn out rate. so even if you do make the cut and stay be prepared to always be training new employees and always be picking up there slack.

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

    Pros

    Many different types of Finance work to get involved with: strategy to FP&A, pay is decent and the environment is healthy. Great place to work if you are female or minority.

    Cons

    Development is on your own, unless you are regarded as top top talent. Location can be tough for some families - small town where everyone knows you. technology (systems) and support is poor - be very good at excel.
