    Pros

    You get a bonus almost every 3 months which is nice. time goes by because of the fact that you get a break every 2 hours.

    Cons

    Managers are The worst and the amount of work expected in one shift is unbelievable. The give you a set time to do tasks and if you don't do it then your looked at as being to slow

    Advice to Management

    Learn what the task times should be and be more realistic. You guys don't pay people enough that they should be breaking their backs to have tasks accomplished just because you guys are short handed

    Pros

    Company has a good 401k program. Promotion from with in is still one of the top selling points.

    Cons

    Promotion from with in to entry level management is where it ends. They are currently going outside the company for majority of higher level management. Long term managers are being demoted an terminated at a high rate to make room for younger and more easily swayed managers, to get away from original basic beliefs.

    Advice to Management

    Take a history lesson in the way the company was 10-15 years ago. We were stronger then, we were free thinking then, and it was a better company to work for.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to do many different things from International, Home Office, IT, or in the Stores. Benefits are good. General work/life balance ok.

    Cons

    Depending on Market leader you work for politics play a part of the job. Decisions can be made of personal nature rather then for business reasons. Open door at salary level rarely exists although consistently talked about. Never saw Market leader decision overturned through open door process.

    Advice to Management

    People do not leave salary positions or income with Company they mostly are leaving due to poor leaders they are exposed to.

    Pros

    The only good thing is that's a pro is coworkers, bonuses, breaks, available food, discount, and opportunities for non hard workers.

    Cons

    One of the worst management structure I've work for. Never listen to the associate's concerns or try use data from the associate's to help improve and make the company more profit.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to the little people that work for you. There on the sales floor day in day out know what product sales and how to get it out more faster and replenish it also. Stop awarding the non hard workers and stop using favoritism to advance associates that have no clue what to do in the position there given.

    Pros

    As a first job, it paid better than I expected.
    Good amount of break time, 15 minutes for every 3-4 hours and if you work more than 6 hours then you got an hour for a meal as well.

    Cons

    Stressful
    Walmart lets anybody in, so sometime the customers behave/dress unconventionally
    As a seasonal employee, I was given very little training before working on my own and felt unprepared when starting.
    You only receive an employee discount after working there for 3 months and its only 20% off certain products.

    Advice to Management

    When requesting time off, it would be more beneficial to directly tell the employee, not through the online system, so that they have more time to find someone to cover their shift.
