I have been working at Walmart

Pros

Wal-Mart is constantly improving and listening to feedback from employees. They are also working with outside companies to ensure that salary levels are comparable with the industry. Personnel management used to be very bad about over-working salary associates, but they have improved work-life balance over the past 5 years greatly.

Cons

Sr. Mgmt is out of touch with the rank and file workers. There is so much focus on diversity that many feel there is an environment based more on political correctness than on performance and results. Wal-Mart seems to be dumbing-down their hiring at the corporate level and mostly hiring project managers and less professionals with skills and experience. Stock hasn't gone anywhere in 10 years. It used to be big selling point for working here, but is now worthless.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep listening to feedback from employees.

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity for advancement, meaning that there is a lot of different jobs within the company, something for everyone.

    Cons

    Management team is very disorganized at all levels of the company. In addition, the associates that have worked for Wal-Mart for 10+ years seem to be able to get away with doing less that the newer associates. I don't know whether that is common throughout the company. In addition, gays and lesbians in our store are not treated fairly and have been forced to leave most often leaving the company to work elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To train the management staff better, to make more strict requirements to become an assistant manager.

    Pros

    benifits are good compaired to other retailers

    Cons

    The expections are very high at Wal Mart. The job that is given to you is difficult because you work short handed. The culture that Mr. Sam Started is long gone. Department managers sales volume exceed the sales of most stores in town. The pay compensation if far less that the responsibility they have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire enough assciates to give the customer service you advertise about. Get back to the wal mart culture when Mr. Sam was active in the company. Don't replace all of your longer termed associates with employees from other company's. Don't try to run the stores from Bentonville.
