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

    Pros

    Great associates to work with. Usually flexible hours. Benefits package is nice.

    Cons

    Stressful job meant to push the limits of their employees to the point they either get burned out and quit or mess up enough to be considered temporary and terminated. Leadership is mediocre at best. Too many chiefs, not enough indians.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your hourly associates, they are the faces and names your customers see everyday. Ensure that you let them know how important they are each day. A paycheck should not be the only form of gratitude for a job well done.

    If you do work hard and everyone else contributes to the overall restocking, move items to floor, placing items on shelves, securing those items and making sure the customer is well taken care of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To allways be fair in your praise as well criticism towards all those employees that are above and below you, make sure the persons that are being promoted are well trained and prepared to do the job at hand

    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.
