    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the co workers were nice people helpful and I learned very fast from them and , management was terrific too

    Cons

    Sometimes I would be taken from my regular position and placed on the for as a greeter, it wasn't the job that was a con it was some of the very ride customers.

    Advice to Management

    Please hire employee's that are specifically door greeters instead of taking cashiers and other employees to cover the door.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Walmart offers a great benefits package, and a safe and clean work environment. It offers a flexible work schedule for part-time employees and competitive pay.

    Cons

    Although the pay is competitive and the benefits are good, as a salaried member of management, you work long hours and receive no compensation for additional hours worked. Work life balance is difficult to achieve.

    I worked at Walmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    co-workers diversity of people given more hours than needed

    Cons

    last minute call ins "team work" really isnt allowed

    Advice to Management

    Let the workers that give good morale to coworkers pass on some jokes so there arent too many miserable people having the idea to commit suicide in the workplace or hate their lives because of the job they have

    Pros

    Happy smiles. Team meetings. Customers provide variety. Some managers are good.

    Cons

    Long-term unending clannish vested. Quite good at initial welcome to newbie. Ultimately a bit stuck in old ways at store level unless you follow crowd.

    Advice to Management

    Be more positive in a real, no strings attached way. Be Leary of midlevels who demote themselves from responsibility and remain on staff. Remember to appreciate honesty, even if you are not used to it.

    I have been working at Walmart part-time

    Pros

    I work at the Walmart Neighborhood Market which is strictly groceries. The store is located near the beach and the customers are great. People in Huntington Beach are down to earth and easy to serve. I've brought back the "customer service" to customer service as I'm older than some of the other associates.

    Cons

    Cashier should get paid more, especially with the new laws regarding bags in Huntington Beach. It makes 'bagging' groceries more of a challenge and Walmart doesn't have box boys.

    Advice to Management

    To acknowledge the hard work we do as cashiers, with the new bag law that's been enforced. And, to raise the pay a bit more.

    Pros

    Accosiates I worked alongside were pretty cool if not too influenced by upper management

    Cons

    Management and their delegations to their employees. Constant favoritism to only those who agree with their bad management. Drone-like

    Advice to Management

    Get a new Store manager
