    Former Employee - Overnight Stocker in New Brunswick, NJ

    I worked at Walmart full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working the overnight shift was ok you have plenty of brake time and folks generally leave you to work and the night goes by quickly

    Cons

    The challenge is to get all the work that is needed done on time especially if it was work that should be done for more than one person or even two without being looked at as a slacker

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to listen to your workforce more and take some on the floor advice as well as add a few new folks to make work time less and more productive

    Appreciate CSMs more. We run around with our heads cut off and we never get the credit we deserve.

    I worked at Walmart

    Pros

    They do keep track of your work, when i was about to leave they were going to give me a raise for all the hard work.

    Cons

    Have to work fast and help more than one person at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have to take their job more serious in the aspect of knowing how to talk to other workers. Not that they talk to me that way but i did see them talking to other people wrong, no one in management should talk down to people like that.

    Pros

    you can move up in the company before your 90 day probation (don't let them tell you otherwise)

    Cons

    disrespectful managers, theres no heat in the building, scheduling is ridiculous and don't bring nothing more than your jacket to wrk because you have to share a tiny locker with atlas one other associate. the pay isn't worth the stress

    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Middletown, NY
    Former Employee - Assistant Manager in Middletown, NY

    I worked at Walmart full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There was none. I left less than a year. Not a company I wanted to grow with.

    Cons

    Turn off your phone cause it will be ringing for you to come in on your time off with no extra pay. They expect a lot for salary mangers and if you don't give they coach you out. As an assistant I should have done more than the management above me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My adivce to upper management which I told them is....... Get your hands dirty. Stop blaming others for your failures. Use you power for good and give thanks for all your employees as you were trained to do or at least I was. True story I gave thanks to a zms who worked there for 8 yrs. though the walmarts "my guide". I was the first to ever do so. She was so grateful. No one ever did that really 8 years people 8 long years she worked hard everyday for you never missed work always on time. She did her work...her departments were zoned and up to date on planograms. I was there less then 2 months in and I did it. I gave out to everyone who deserved it. So many others who felt the same as she did. Give thanks to you people.
