    Pros

    Imsurance, travel, meeting people around the world

    Cons

    Running a small format is harder then a supercenter. Small formats we only have 50 to 69 Associates. All associates and management need to be a custom too doing everything in the store

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Running a small format is not as easy as it looks.

    Unreasonable workload that could be helped if the company would allow more payroll hours so managers can get work done.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Merchandise Managers usually work 7am-4pm

    Cons

    The company accepts and keeps low producing employees. Too many salaried managers daily pulling and requiring sales associates from other depts. to work in their depts. leaving associates work undone in their own depts. We are told that it is"The Walmart Way".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is not pleasant to continually work in a "crisis management" mode. Not enough good quality sales associates to get work done in a timely manor because upper management does not oversee results. Not enough equipment for managers to do their jobs. Continually having to "share" results in hidden equipment that cannot be used when everyone has to use it at the same time. Each department should have enough equipment assigned to it so managers can be effecient.
