    Pros

    nice part time job after school and for college students

    Cons

    they schedule you for work every hour you are not in class or marked out when you signed up for the job

    Advice to Management

    not to have so many managers in charge of such few people at a time.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a bonus every 3 months

    Cons

    The bonus depends on how many customers "hurt" themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates like they're people, because they are.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay for the area. Though I haven't figured out how, some employees do nothing all day and win employee of the month. Job is not mentally demanding.

    Cons

    Some employees are favored and get away with doing nothing all day...every day. The company has openings for managers and has a manager training program, but only trains 1 or 2 managers at a time (6 month program). So while there is a chance to move up, you will never be qualified to move up! Senior management has no clue what is going on in the building.

    Advice to Management

    Read Sam's quotes again that you supposedly "run your company with". You have forgotten just about all of them! Hire more people from within. Hire competent managers, not bosses. Get rid of dead weight.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm sure your work experience varies drastically depending on the managers and the people they hire. If your hard work or ethics are in question you can always refer management to the security camera footage. While most positive aspects will vary, my experience with managers was great, and experience with employees so-so.

    Cons

    * Advancement and raises depend on manager reviews * Had to work as a temp for one year before getting actually hired (benefits/slightly better pay)
