    Pros

    Advancement opportunities, great at developing skills, great place to learn a skill and grow your resume, or grow with the company.

    Cons

    Understaffing issues negatively affects all parts of their business. However, Walmart has increased their minimum hourly rate with hopes to attract more committed employees, and retain better employees.

    Advice to Management

    At the store level, any time you are called in to over ride an associate following company policy, make sure that you first make it clear to the associate and customer that they were doing their job and that you are making an exception.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Laid back atmosphere on 3rd shift. Safety incentives.

    Cons

    Managers tend to "target" individuals for disciplinary action. Severe cut in hours during January and February. Training tends to take a back seat to daily duties. Nothing WalMart related can be done off the clock (including applying for other WalMart positions and requesting time off).

    Advice to Management

    Endeavor to treat people equally rather than play favorites. Follow-through after meetings with Associates. Set time aside for training so it doesn't pile up.

    Pros

    Walmart is Walmart. In my opinion, the thing that matters most about whether you like your job or not, is the people that you work with directly. One hour lunch is nice. I don't take part in the insurance and other benefits so I can not comment on that stuff. Overall, it's a good job.

    Cons

    It's hot inside the store all year round.

    Advice to Management

    Get better coffee for the break room.

    Pros

    Fast paced work. Semi-flexible scheduling. Occasional quarterly bonuses(if we qualify) rewarding customer service experiences

    Cons

    Surrounded by people who are only there to draw a paycheck. Demanding customer service experiences

    Advice to Management

    Throw out this theory that paying more money to the wrong people gets you anywhere. You have to hire the right people. Not just get bodies in place. When you do get the right people. Invest in them. Otherwise you're just training them to work somewhere else.

    Pros

    Good working team,attitude and work ethics (mostly from the associates), and some benefits!... For some associates the working schedules are a good deal.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations about the everyday shores; under staff working; give you a raise a few months ago an now cut your hours; disrespectful treatment from management; mostly uncooperative associates on the daily important job of keeping a safety environment for customers and fellow associates (under the watch of most managers).

    Advice to Management

    Say thank you, will not devalue your pride. Try to use words like; awesome, outstanding, excellent, very good, appreciate your work; from time to time, instead of the boring and meaningless, "Good job".
    Always, keep your promises to the associates,its a "Trust matter". If you really want to help the associates, "Lead by example".
