I would say that working at Wal-Mart has been a very dissatisfying experience,

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

Pros

I work with a great bunch of associates.

Cons

Very poor communication. One manager may come to you and repeat instructions another manager has given you. Management does not spend time with associates to find out what is going out on the floor. Hours all over the spectrum. They tend to cut your holiday pay by cutting your hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Talk to your employees. As Mr. Sam said the associate is the one who knows what makes the customer happy.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Promoted quickly over several departments.
    Became the "Impact Leader" that was afraid to speak up
    Training
    Some corporate CEOs are easy to address on issues

    Cons

    Hiring an firing employees for the unethical tactics
    Store management, Assistant Mgrs were clearly not trained.
    Zone Managers over department managers should have equal pay
    UNFAIR PAY
    Bonuses to store management an assistant management is awarded to but NEVER given to associates that has an will forever be the Real Backbone of the retail giant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    END your bonus money you get from corporate an give if to higher job pays instead. Your associates are the ones who need it more then you. You management folk eat, breathe and now down to every single word that Sam Walton spoke. Now if he was alive today, an view how his retail company treats it's assiocates no better then a cotton picker. You management an corporates, need to live a pay period in assiocates shoes an department managers an then you'll finally grasp what I'm speaking of. Till then I will never respect you as a human.
