    Former Employee - Sales Associate - Sporting Goods in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at Walmart part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Probably the easiest job in the world. They have an open door policy that seems to work well. If you're lucky you'll have some nice coworkers to hang in there with.

    Cons

    Way too many layers of management. You get a different task from each one or the same task they want done in different ways. Feast or famine work hours. A tad above minimum wage. Not much opportunity to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chain of command. Follow it.

    Former Employee - Assembler in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at Walmart part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked as as assembler in the back of Walmart. There was a lot of freedom. My main job was to assemble bikes and sometimes outdoor items such as grills. I also had to keep the bike floor stocked and the toy aisles nice. I was allowed to take my breaks and lunch when I wanted and my supervisor let me do my job and was happy as long as I completed all my tasks.

    Cons

    Only worked here for about a month because I was also going to college and I worked 4 hours Friday night, 8 hours Saturday and Sunday and 4 hours Monday night. I tried to get my hours switched but my supervisor either forgot or didn't care that I asked so I had to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and don't ignore them. The Assistant manager of the store who helped me with the quitting process understood how important school and was surprised the other supervisor did not change my schedule.

    Pros

    The only good thing here is you will meet some really cool people.

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism with all managers. If your not on there favorites list or kissing their butt you get stuck doing their favorites work, then say your lazy and don't do anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your managers and how they are really working!

    Pros

    Worked around my hectic military reserve schedule and college schedule. The managers were genuinely nice people, but they were inept and under-qualified for their jobs.

    Cons

    Employees are underpaid, they hire undesirable employees.

    Pros

    They can be flexible with your schedule.
    Easy to get the hang of things.
    Nice benefits.
    Great people (besides upper management)

    Cons

    Bad management.
    Hard to get up in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would be advised to hire the people who are actually passionate about the company and work hard to try to get farther instead of hiring random people off the street. When you have awesome people ready to take a step forward, don't hire someone else who barely meets the qualifications.

    Lower management and associates on your pay grade always have your back!
