I have been working at Walmart

Pros

Not many other than it gives a good base for a young person to start off of, and the people you work with are great. Depending on how well the store does you get a special amount in your check sometimes reaching $400 in certain quarters, but sometimes you only get around $60. You get holiday if you have been there 90 days.

Cons

Management Plays favorites and sometimes it seems as if home office does not care about they're employees. They deny any request to have off on saturdays. They have a knack for screwing people out of their 40 hours. They don't do well notifying people when they are elegible for health insurance. If your store remodels walmart makes the employees pay for it out of their myshare. They don't do well when it comes to letting people have a flexible schedule. Sometimes you will find yourself doing things that are not in your job code. You work all holidays. Absoloutely no over time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start caring about your employees and make sure that the store managers are fit for the job before you give them it.

    Pros

    They offer employees a 10% discount on merchandise and allow employee health plan subscribers to purchase subscriptions for $5. There is also a modest profit sharing plan and a bonus based on 'shrink' numbers (that is how the real inventory of the store compares with what should be there).

    Cons

    The pay is low across all functional areas, although the sales floor and checkouts are the worst. Store managers receive a bonus based on store performance (profitability), but hourly 'associates' do not. Most assistant managers are ambivalent because of their own low pay and long hours, thus are not very good at motivating others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smile, laugh with, and treat the people who work in your stores like EQUALS, not peons.
