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

    Pros

    Been here for 2 years, started in the frozen/dairy department and now work as a certified optician. Moving up, flexible hours, good pay is great for a part time job while I work toward my college degrees to move up even further at Wal-Mart.

    Cons

    Sometimes it gets very busy, but if you can manage your time and multi-task you will thrive.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like a team, show them you are willing to work with and listen to them, not dictate, lead by example.

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    It is a very stable part time job, and isn't very difficult to pick up and learn. Also the ability to work with expensive items is sometimes fun.

    Cons

    It has often very high expectations for a single work day and often these tasks do not get completed and it is often blamed on the associates.

    Advice to Management

    Just that management needs to understand the amount of work we really do.
