I worked at Walmart

Pros

Pay is reasonable if you live nearby. Co-workers mostly very nice. Company policies seem fair. Almost all customer service managers work really hard to help you do your job. Management speaks to employees in respectful manner--even if topic is negative. Ample breaks provided.

Cons

When you manage to maintain a pleasant professional attitude with customers but have to observe others employees be unpleasant without consequences. Irregular hours and difficulty arranging ahead of time for needed time off or switching hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ability to request 1/2 day off rather than whole day only would help with scheduling flexibility and be an acknowledgment of family life, which Wal Mart supposedly cares about. Overall, I felt and noticed a pervasive underlying atmosphere of fear at my workplace, expecially when there was a change in upper management pending.

    Pros

    Well lets see. I would say that having a schedule of 7-4 monday thru friday was a definite plus. Off weekends. No other retail company anywhere in the world gives any kind of manager off both weekend days. Job is pretty easy for the most part. You pretty much just stock all day. ( if thats what you like) you can make assistant manager pretty quickly where your base starting pay is 50000.

    Cons

    As with the pros this was a definite con for me. Allllllllllllllllllllllll you do is stock shelves all day long. You do no type of management at all. You learn nothing about retail management that can possibly help you in the future. Its really a waste of time, and your lucky to get 13 bucks an hour, whick today isnt much. Yeah you can make assistant manager pretty quick and make a huge leap in pay, but once you make that leap, your social life is does not exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really not much advice to give.

    Pros

    The majority of the associates are nice and a pleasure to work along side. Most associates will help you when you have questions and are willing to assist when needed.

    Cons

    Management feels that they are better than the associates. They do not work with each, but rather try to undermine each other. It appears from an associates viewpoint that all the managers work for a different company than the associates. They are only concerned with their designated areas and do not care what another manager might have assigned to an associate. They feel that they can change the course of action because they are a manager. They do not praise anyone for a job well done, but criticize when something has not been completed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the associates to do their job. They know what has to be done and they attempt to do it. Let them do it and schedule enough people that other departments do not have to cover the shortage and then be criticized for not getting their job completed.
