    I have been working at Walmart part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Being around the customers is great, I love a good challenge with a bunch of price matching and couponing. I loved watching over the self check out, making sure customers had a clear view on how to work the machines.

    Cons

    The only cons is that they do not accept doctors notes, and they really do not care how sick you are, a call off for any reason is counted against you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management needs to be more friendly, and needs to get to know more of the on floor people. They kind of just walk around like we are their little peasants.

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were phenomenal, and we always supported each other, even in different work areas.
    The opportunity for advancement is there for anyone looking to move up

    Cons

    Breaking policy to satisfy customers seemed to be the norm, which was frustrating.
    The politics of management were even more frustrating. I felt like I didn't want to move up simply because I didn't want to work closer with certain members of management, because they were poor managers, and bad influences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on people who have spent too long in one place with little or no oversight. They tend to stray from policies and the "Walmart Way." Continue to support your people, and listen to their concerns.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Good pay. Decent bonus structure.

    Cons

    Recently the "work/life balance" had been deemed as not necessary. When I started the company wanted to ensure that you had ample time to spend with your family even through the difficult time odd the holidays. The pay few years that hasn't been a priority. Staffing is a struggle. Ad a salaried employee you are going to put in extra time if your store is not properly staffed
