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

Pros

Went from part time associate to department manager in less than three months.

Cons

I was left to fend for myself as a new manager and new hires are paid the same as people who have been there for years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have someone in charge who is willing to train and mentor.

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

    Pros

    can advance if willing to relocate. usually will work with you on scheduling.

    Cons

    has a tendency to expect more from lowly paid hourly than from overpaid management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hourlies make or break the stores and businesses. not all management is created equal.

    There is a power struggle within management and you have to work hard and know people to move up quickly.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You can work just about as hard you want to and the work is mindless busywork. The days go by quickly with this job and you get to work with some laid back people. The hours are pretty flexible and they are happy to change them depending on who you have for a manager.

    Cons

    There is a major lack of communication with management and different managers tell you to do different things not knowing that you already have a ton to do for the day. The pay sucks and there is a general fatigued attitude surrounding employees and often customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your employees what they currently have going on before you tell them a list of things to do. Understand time frames of how long it should take to complete certain tasks and assign them to people accordingly, knowing your estimates may be incorrect.
