    Pros

    They care about their employees, and have good benefits. They will work with your schedule the best they can

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best, but it's improving. Sometimes it's slightly overwhelming due to the amount expected from you but overall it's not a bad place to work.

    Pros

    This is a great job if you are a high school or college student looking to earn some summer money or to work during the school year.

    Cons

    A big problem was not having enough hours to go around for all of the employees. At times even the full-time workers had to fight for their hours.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on not hiring too many people for a single department.

    Pros

    Great benefits, including fsa account, 401k matching, health, vision, dental. Not as hectic as other retail. Not all have a drive thru. In a grocery setting

    Cons

    Unionized hard to het rid of bad techs, unsteady hours and schedules. Work evenings and weekends. Lot of corporate tasks but no time to complete. Schedules are forecasted from year before as well as hours allowed to schedule techs. Very unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    More help will be beneficial, able to have a set way to hire and fire techs. More hours to schedule techs, not to use forecast for scheduling, may be a guide but not set for hours . Treat pharmacist with more appreciation

    Pros

    You don't have to work too hard if you have any kind of work ethic at all.

    Cons

    Low pay---union job. All the union does is make sure everyone stays the same and of course collect their dues so they can send newsletter's telling the rank and file what a great job they're doing. One year 40% of the raise they negotiated for me went to increased union dues. The weak don't get cut from the herd and and the strong get the reins pulled back on them.

    Advice to Management

    I worked for them in Nevada and Kentucky, Nevada is non union and Kentucky is union. I believe management is non union in both locations and management is roughly equivalent in both states however the rank and file is much stronger in Nevada. Advice is to dump the union in Kentucky and let those who work excel and pay them and those that don't go work for WalMart.
