    Former Employee - Wal Mart Cashier in Mesa, AZ

    I worked at Walmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you pay attention, most tasks are easy
    If you know the right people, your hard work will be acknowledged
    If you work there long enough, the bonus myshare is pretty decent.

    Cons

    Management has stupid expectations and constantly pushes it's employees to do either uncomfortable things or things that can't possibly be done in the time frame they give you.
     The pay is ridiculously low ,
     They do not train you enough to answer the questions that customers have.
    They don't train you enough, period.
    You don't get your breaks on time. Sometimes You don't get them at all.
    No one in engagement cares if you were mistreated.
     Customers are awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your workers a livable wadge.
     You can afford to give your employees more than 10% off non food items.
    Train your people and make them do ALL the CBLS before they are thrown out on the floor. Make it a requirement.

    I worked at Walmart full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    So I think the Pros of working for this company are that they give good pay and good benifits.
    if you work full time. on things like Health and a discount.

    Cons

    The cons so i was a cart pusher for this company and they told me they would put a water contaner out so that we would not get dehyrated and that never happend no one never put there carts away so you are always on the hunt for them the managers dont ever seem to care if you are haveing problems of any kind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make shure you have a better training program and also fallow thro on what you say you are going todo.

    I have been working at Walmart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    if you hold out for a couple of years your pay does increase, semi good benefits, depending on the store and location enjoyable customers

    Cons

    lots of work with little pay, and never enough staff. keeps you on your toes every day, i know lots of people who got fired for the wrong reasons, or some management will wait to let you go because of one past mistake.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    most management works their way up so every one has sympathy for how hard their employees work but it's rare to feel fully appreciated. it's nice to have scheduling needs met but that helps the bottom line.
