    I worked at Walmart full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Provides opportunity and advancement, if you work hard and play the right politics. Salary and benefits are good for the position.

    Cons

    Long hours with very little recognition. Hard to make positive changes in such a large organization. Churn and burn environment for an HR professional. Many programs implemented in the field, that could be very good, but are implemented as a "check the box" and completed, and thus with little effectiveness.

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

    Pros

    They pay above minimum wage, something I miss. Your co-workers tend to be very nice and easy to relate to. You get a discount card after 90 days. You meet/see interesting people.

    Cons

    Not enough employees; Managers and especially CSM/CSS are stretched to the max. One time it took me 45 minutes to receive change for my drawer. So by that time customers were either getting too little or too much change back. Towards the end of my time there, managers wanted to keep cashiers tied to the register and only let off when they say it's okay. Most employees feel entitled. Don't get me wrong I enjoy helping people and yes it was my job to do so, but I'm not kissing anyone's @$$.

    Also, as a cashier it is not my job to know about every single product in the store and how much it costs. You can call my manager all you want but you must seriously be crazy if you think I know about every product.

    Basically this was my first experience ever working retail and I wish it hadn't been. It left such a sour taste in my mouth that just thinking about it makes me seriously angry all over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more employees, give us set schedules, pay the css/csm more because without them you wouldn't manage.
