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

Pros

One of the best things about working at Walmart is the open door policy to management. You make a lot of friends and work is not too demanding.

Cons

You cannot live on the pay. Walmart makes more than enough to give their workers more than $8 per hour. Additionally, dealing with the low-class customers beings to get real old after a while. Furthermore, the company has no backbone. They will literally accept anything in the return department. Literally, anything. We would take back items that had a "Target" price tag on it and we still paid the customer. Despite the fact that the item is not even sold by Walmart, we still paid them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Petition the CEO to raise pay for employees.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best reason to work here is the customers. The benefits are great and not expensive. The hours to work in the vision center are great.

    Cons

    Having to many "chiefs" and not enough "Indians". The people I work with think they should tell everyone what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to check on the asst. managers more often and to see what shifts they actually are working. Especially in the vision center.
