Wal-Mart - the good and the bad.

Training Coordinator (Current Employee)

ProsWal-Mart offers employees an excellent opportunity to bonus with the company. Each quarter the associates are eligible to receive up to $450 depending on sales, profit, inventory, and customer service. Wal-Mart also matches 15% of what the associates put towards Wal-Mart stock from their paychecks. They offer holiday pay, a Sunday premium, and a 10% discount as well. There are many opportunities to advance with the company with little higher education - a big difference from many other companies!!!! The stores are very close knit and the associates become family. Raising money for Children's Miracle Network is very rewarding and the company does some amazing things for this organization. They also donate a lot of money to local communities and organizations.

ConsNo company is perfect, and Wal-Mart is not exempt from this. Short staffing can often be a problem as it is a very fast paced retail environment that many people are not ready for. Often changes are initiated by home office and not explained to the associates in a timely manner, thus creating low morale and poor communication. Each store is different and no store is consistent with all policies, which can make it confusing when transferring or working in another facility. Management in each store is also different, which can make or break the environment. They are the backbone of each store, and with poor management the morale in the store will also be very poor.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would advise senior management to listen more to the associates. Listening goes a long way and makes people feel good when they feel someone has invested quality time in them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
