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

    Pros

    Flexibility (to an extent), nice co-workers, good break system (one every two hours)

    Cons

    Hard to come by advancement, low pay, the attendance policy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I started working, there was a policy that said if 10% called in on a snowy day then it would be excused. Living in a place with a lot of hazardous snow falls, that happened a lot. Shortly after, they changed the policy so it's up to the managers discretion. They NEED to work on the attendance policy. It is great to an extent but it needs MAJOR changes. The management makes you feel as if you're a number and not a person, unless you're a major suck up.

  2. Great for starting out. But keep up the job search while you work there.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Probably the easiest job in the world. They have an open door policy that seems to work well. If you're lucky you'll have some nice coworkers to hang in there with.

    Cons

    Way too many layers of management. You get a different task from each one or the same task they want done in different ways. Feast or famine work hours. A tad above minimum wage. Not much opportunity to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chain of command. Follow it.
