I have been working at Walmart

Pros

Walmart has various locations that make it somewhat easy to find a job that is close to home.
Involved in community events

Cons

There seems to be a lot of personal favoritism inside of facilities. The policies that Walmart has can vary from facility to facility and in the facility that I am currently employed at the policies and guidelines are very vague. This leads to a lot of disciplinary action that is at the discretion of the supervisor which doesn't always result in fair treatment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Walmart has been rapidly moving away from its grass roots model. The customer service has been declining over the years and so has the treatment of Walmarts associates. Walmart needs to focus simply on the three basic beliefs that Sam founded the company on. Respect for the individual, service to the customer and striving for excellence.

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    -small amounts of responsibility
    -great schedule flexibility for college students
    -there are some positions for management if interested
    -if you just come to work and keep a low profile, it will be enjoyable (when people talk too much, they are kinda red-flagged)

    Cons

    -only room for advancement is to go into the management program
    -the management program is not flexible, they make you change hours from days to nights every six months and may relocate you to another store nowhere near where you live...no thanks

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take into consideration that your workers do need weekends off and they cannot move store to store as expected. Also, higher wages for your workers. You can afford it. They can't afford to eat. I used to listen this in the breakroom. They can;t pay their bills. It's insane.

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    At the store level, there is a great family feel.
    Discount is nice
    Hard work does get rewarded
    LEading edge of retail
    Easy to change jobs if you get bored
    Profit sharing

    Cons

    You're lucky if you see your store manager once a week
    Co-managers act as if they are god
    Ridiculous chain of command-you cannot go to the store manager, co-manager, or even assistant manager if you aren't a supervisor. You HAVE to follow the chain. Complain to your supervisor and nothing gets done? good luck getting someone to talk to you.
    Management does not care. Feel lucky if you get 2 or 3 that are nice.
    Too many chiefs, not enough indians.
    TLE gets treated like GARBAGE, even though they make up almost 30% of sales, and in a good store quite a bit more
    glass ceiling. work hard, you will get promoted to supervisor eventually if you posess the attitude. That's it. Good luck getting promoted further.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. If one says it, 25 are thinking it. Promote from within instead of hiring in assistant managers who know nothing. Wal-Mart is very different from most retail stores. Stop giving customers EVERYTHING they want. Photo can't develop your picture because they have nudity, so they give you a 20$ gift card due to inconvenience. Seriously, have a spine.
