    I would have liked it better if I would have gotten hours. Time goes by quick because you are constantly busy.

    I worked at Walmart full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Associates who just want to provide for their families, customer focused with hopes of being recognized and promoted by the upper management team.

    Cons

    You are showered with the notion that the associates get quarterly bonuses for their hard work. I worked 3 yrs. and received 1 bonus. We were always told that all other expenses whether it be store accidents, equipment repairs come before the associates. If you speak up, you are looked at as a trouble maker. Management rather sit in the office than interact w/ customers & associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sam Walton harnessed that associate/customer service/family friendly atmosphere. Where did it go?

    Pros

    You can move around and learn different things with out having to change Companies. all kind of shift to fit your life style. 10 Precent discount on merchandise.

    Cons

    Top heavy management that all have different views of how the store should be run. Their direction is always changing depending on who's in charge. They don't follow the basic belief of respect for the individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if you really follow the belief 's this company was founded on. Train trust follow up retrain if nessary.

    Pros

    The company was a great place to work. The benefits were super awesome, and the environment was high pace.

    Cons

    I felt like they only offered management positions to their relatives and not to people who actually deserve the position. I sometime felt like their was alot of favoritism towards hispanics when it came to handing out promotions. I felt like I had to beg to get fulltime while others had it handed to them on a silver platter.
