    Pros

    Great place to work they respect their employees and they have great benefits including retirement and health benefits, bonuses, and vacation pay.

    Cons

    The cons are just the normal everyday thing of being on your feet all day long, dealing with irate
    Customers, and they overflow of returns at Christmas.
    I loved my job at Walmart.

    Pros

    Long term career opportunities
    Learn different aspects of customer service
    Friendly environment
    Started paying decent wages for entry level applicants

    Cons

    Can be fast-paced and stressful
    Advancement into salaried management requires recommendation from current store manager regardless of how little experience they've had with you

    Advice to Management

    Teach and train your associates rather than degrade and mock them
    Think about what the company needs to progress rather than what you want for your job to be easier

    Pros

    air conditioned work environment (except TLE), all kinds of nice people to work with, good work environment, low stress (unless in management), was willing to work with my schedule (always), easy to transfer, really overall you're set up for success.

    Cons

    pay is (was) not great, low pay caps, promotions not worth the pay increase, had to work ALL major holidays, you really have to learn C.Y.A.

    Advice to Management

    the reasons I quit was because I was blamed for something I didn't do. and it was not thoroughly investigated. I ask that when an employee has been with the company 5+ years you make SOME effort to believe them.

    Pros

    Bonuses, great coworkers, most of management will work with you for special occasions and circumstances, benefits are decent for full time employees, stock purchase program and a discount

    Cons

    It's retail so if you don't working with the public is not for you. Say goodbye to holidays with your family and friends.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to staff concerns and issues, be approachable, maybe even polite so many of our managers now are just plain rude to associates. Lack of communication is going to destroy this company from store and market level.
