I worked at Walmart

Pros

Friendly co-workers
"We are in it together" kind of atmosphere
Overall, an interesting experience

Cons

Pay is low. It goes up in ridiculous increments of 20-25 cents (in 2005). So earning an increase of 50 cents seemed like a big deal. It felt miserable.

Lots of brainwashing. To make up for low salaries, management tries to make employees feel proud of what they do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raising salaries would raise prices, and WM would lose its competitive edge. I think, from a non-employee point of view, management is doing the right thing trying to compensate employees with non-monetary benefits. As a former employee, I can say that a performance raise of 25 cents is insulting.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    Secure Job in the economy that were in
    Most Store make the MyShare Bonus every quarter
    They match you 401k and put in even when you dont

    Cons

    Cutting Payroll way to much to continue to serve the customer
    The Tasks given are to much, when you compare coverage to customer need

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Uppar management needs to remember 3 three basics beliefs which are starting to be forgotten. We need to brring back "Respect the individual" (its ok to say good job) "Serve the Customer" (Ya we are a big store, customer need us) "Strive for Excelliance" (Sorry when you have 1 one to serve the customer on the entire GM Side You cant have Excelliance)

    Pros

    Room to grow and climb the corporate ladder if you would like. Open communication with managers and district managers for all associates.

    Cons

    Management positions seem to be the most stressful positions. No vacations are allowed for any associates from about November 9th to January 2nd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep allowing associates to communicate and give feedback concerning new ideas and ways to better serve the customer through streamlining.
