    Pros

    Meet alot of diverse people, have fun with managers, warehouse, and cashiers! Customers are interesting. Lots of advancement opportunity if you want to succeed in your career.

    Cons

    Doesn't start at an acceptable "living wage" Part time hours are longer than other jobs. Vendors come to service their products constantly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Make time to get to know each and every one of them, we are all unique and bring different qualities to the team!

    I have been working at Walmart

    Pros

    The atmosphere is nice and coworkers were all very cool. It was also pretty easy most of the time except for weekends

    Cons

    I thought that the pay was rather low. I mean come on! I cant live on minimum wage. Very sad that a company who makes that much cant event take care of its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be more compassionate and understanding of your worker's circumstances. Also try to praise and reward your employees when possible.
